Happy Birthday Ty







Don't you love this last picture? Mom captured his true feelings on a walk in front of her house and for the life of me I can't figure out why I didn't sent it as my Christmas card that first year. He was right around Joy's age and didn't enjoy life too much at that point. I'm not gonna lie: no one within a four mile radius did either.

Oh I kid.

Three years ago today he came into our world. Three years ago today I became a Momma. Three years ago today I felt my first moments of fear that something would happen to him. That I wouldn't be able to protect him, and that he might feel pain.

And he has caused me moments of sheer joy and sheer exhaustion. He has brought about waves of fear and satisfaction. Made every emotion humanly possible part of my everyday normal. He has changed everything about his daddy and me.

And we are so proud.

Happy 3rd Birthday munchkin, little man, master Ty, buddy, and big brother. We love you more than you know.

Happy 3rd bday, Buddy! That last pic is hilarious- I think a 3rd-time around mom could do that as a Christmas card, but it's a big stretch for a 1st-time mama. :) I am also wondering if he is in a dog crate in one of those pics??

Happy Birthday Ty! I hope you know what a special Moma you have! Loved the pictures Mary. Hallmark had a contest going where you could submit your pictures and a caption and if chosen it becomes a card. I think you should for sure submit that last pic!! Oh and I didn't realize Ty's birthday and mine were only one day apart! Just like you and Alissa!!

I'm a little late, but Happy Birthday Ty!! Seeing those pictures bring back such memories, huh? Sounds crazy, but I was a little sad last year when Ryder turned 1. Next week he'll be 2 and it makes me a little sad again! They grow up too fast! Hope he had an awesome Birthday!!
