A is for

Anberlyn! My beautiful first born!
We waited 4 1/2 years to have her! I wanted a boy so badly, I cried when I found out it was a girl. Now I want nothing to do with boys, I want all girls!

She was born 13 days early at a perfect 7pounds 2 ounces, 19.5 inches long!
Contractions Started at bright and early Christmas morning. 4:45 to be exact. We still open gifts at the in-laws and as soon as the last gift was opened we headed to the hospital, arriving about 9am.
I was dilated at 5.5 cm at arrival. At 2:30pm I was fully dilated and it was time to push! She was coming! I was so excited, until 30 minutes had passed, then an hour, 2 hours... At 5:42pm she was finally here. 3 hours of pushing and the use of a vacuum, she was in my arms!

She is now 3 years old. She has brought me such joy. She is smart and very funny.
She is also very stubborn and difficult!
Her new love is reading! She LOVES to sit on her bed and make up stories for each book.
She loves to eat, ANYTHING! Well except spicy food.
A great helper in the kitchen! She loves to help clean up and to do anything Im doing.

She is a wonderful big sister. She loves to run and play in the "field". She is also very very shy, it takes her a little while to warm up to new people,or people she doesnt see often.

She also loves to bite her nails, UGH, and have things a certain way. She remembers EVERYTHING. So if you say she can have a sticker, and you forget to give it to her, she will remind you with screams of terror, from under her blankets at bed time! HAHA
Heres a few photos of my little one! I went a bit over board. They are mostly from her first year! 

I love her and for the most part I can get enough of my 3 year old!


  1. What a sweet post and great pictures!! She is SUCH a doll!

  2. I love the picture of her kissing the dog, and I love the one of her discovering her black shoes :) so, so sweet!
    Help her overcome the nail biting if you can! I still do it, and I hate it!

  3. Anbo is so stinkin' cute. And you are right, super funny. She cracks me up. Such off the wall things pop out of her mouth haha

  4. How adorable! She looks like a sweet little girl! I love all her pictures! :0)
