Happy Birthday!...... my sweet Marlowe.  Two years ago today we were blessed with the best Christmas gift ever.....this precious baby girl who brings so many smiles and much laughter to our home.  She is the youngest of my three girls and the last baby for me so I'm a little tearful as I say good-bye today to the age 1 and officially enter the toddler years.  Being a mother truly is my greatest joy.

I love this quote by Toni Morrison:

Grown don't mean nothing to a mother.  A child is a child.  They get bigger, older, but grown?  What's that suppose to mean?  In my heart it don't mean a thing.  ~ Beloved, 1987

I think I'll always feel that way about my girls too.


  1. Happy Birthday sweet little Marlowe. That is a beautiful quote. Seriously, did you did just have a baby in that picture? You look stunning!

  2. Marlowe is so cute your right she was our Christmas present.

  3. How can two years go by so quickly? My favorite things about my girl Marlowe- a smile to melt my heart, a sweet and determined spirit, two blankies :), her awesome family, and a really special best friend. Happy Birthday! Love you Marlowe!!!
