Happy 3rd Birthday, Baby Sis!

Birthdays are hard on moms

Birthdays are always hard on moms. Today I’m pondering the old adage, “the days are long but the years are short,” and oh man is it true. My teeny tiny baby girl turns three today!

Somedays I long to go back to when she was a baby. We found out about her heart condition when she was two years old, and the next 5 months were a whirlwind of stress and doctors’ appointments. I don’t remember much of her just being little.

Happy 3rd Birthday Camden

However, I wouldn’t trade the right-now for anything! Camden is everything I ever wanted in a daughter (even though I originally wanted all boys). She is independent to the max. She is fearless. She is just the right mix of introvert and extrovert. She is sassy, but she loves fiercely. She’s fairly easy-going, and so, so BEAUTIFUL.

Now that she’s really starting to talk it is so fun getting to know her sweet little spirit. I gave her a birthday interview, so I could always remember who she is at this moment, and here are her answers.
