ah, friends, has it really been almost four months since i posted?! so i guess you can see life has been crazy for me with two little ones. abe is finally finallyyyyy starting to sleep through the night, but honestly i'd say it has been almost a year since i've had a good nights sleep and that is weighing heavily on me. i N E E D my sleeps. so, someday soon i'm sure i will be a [somewhat] sane person again and hope to catalog more of our journey as i have in the past. in the meantime, i have started up a little project with my lovely sister and niece, you can check it out here.

my tiny tot is two!

my brill sister started a fun little tradition with balloons and this song to greet the birthday girl/boy. i was going to at least find my own song, but when i heard the beatles rocking out, i just knew this was the song for my fabs. so we grabbed a colorful bunch of balloons and j, abe and i paraded into fabs sun filled room to get our dance on. and baby girl rocked out.
two years ago my day was filled with fear and tears. two years later my day was filled with joy and laughter. sweet fabienne joy, i look at you all the time and say a little prayer of thanks... God you gave her to me - thank you.

sweetest word you ever did hear.

you guys!
i've been waiting for this moment for many, many months.
my little girl said her first word.
and she couldn't have picked a better word to say.
in my opinion.

my heart pretty much popped out and melted in a pool on the floor.
i am so proud of my sweet little fabs.

my girl.

my baby is growing up. depending on what we decide to do about preschool, this could be the last year i don't have to worry about back to school. that has me a bit sentimental and emotional.
i came across this amazing post a momma wrote about her back to school talk with her kids. i hope there are many momma's like this teaching their kids to be kind and compassionate to everyone. you see, i know my little girl looks a little different and because of this she will endure some discrimination. it completely breaks my heart. when i look at her, i just see my perfect little girl...
my sweet faba...she is so tenderhearted.

she loves to splash.

she's totally adorable in pigtails.

she loves her daddy something fierce.

she's a wise guy.

she's bright.

she has an infectious laugh.

she loves people.

my hope.
my dream.
my prayer.
is that they will love her back.
...just the way she is.
