miss makayla marie.

i am quite possibly the biggest baby lover currently living. i think i've been baby hungry my entire life and since i haven't yet been blessed with children of my own, it's no secret, i love and adore my nieces. i am so thankful for all of them...they are the sweetest group of little ladies and they fill that void in my heart quite nicely.

with that being said, happy happy birthday to my goober grape. it seems like just yesterday that we were living with tyler & jennie as newlyweds and awaiting your arrival. i still remember the day i came home from work early hoping to find out that jennie was in labor and instead, i pulled into the driveway to find your 9 months pregnant rockstar mother out raking the leaves. for whatever reason, i took a mental picture that day and i thought about how lucky you would be to have a mother like her. it wasn't long after, that we finally got the call telling us you'd arrived and as we rushed to the hospital to meet you, we knew we were about to fall madly in love.

needless to say, we were right.

happy birthday goober! xo, aunt jess & uncle greg
