margo at four

oh margo, when you were just a tiny little thing in my arms i knew you would be something special but i never could have imagined how wonderful you would really be. you were the sweetest baby and have gotten even better with time if it's even possible. you were such a quiet, mellow two year old and have surprised me by being so full of life and personality. you are a peacemaker and yet you've really gotten so sassy and know how to hold your ground with your big brother especially. you keep up with him so well which is really saying something. but you are so happy and content to have quiet moments and are so refreshing to have around. you love to go places and are always trying to get me out the door. but you are so much fun to be around and i feel like i have a little friend everywhere i go. you've struggled with your belly this past year but it's finally eased up the past few months and you are really so much more chipper and pleasant. i love seeing you be happier. you have a tender heart and you're generous with those margo kisses and hugs that we all love so much. i adore you and can't wait to see what this year will hold for you. xoxo, 

“My child, the troubles and temptations of your life are beginning, and may be many; but you can overcome and outlive them all if you learn to feel the strength and tenderness of your Heavenly Father as you do that of your earthly one. The more you love and trust Him, the nearer you will feel to Him, and the less you will depend on human power and wisdom. His love and care never tire or change, can never be taken from you, but may become the source of lifelong peace, happiness, and strength. Believe this heartily, and go to God with all your little cares, and hopes, and sins, and sorrows, as freely and confidingly as you come to your mother.” -Louisa May Alcott

  1. I do not even know how I even got to this website, but scrolling through the photos of your beautiful children brought happy tears to my eyes.
    Looking through the images, your love and affection towards them is so obvious. But I thought you should know that they are lucky to have you as their mother.
    I lost my mother 3 years ago to a sudden and unexpected heart attack at the age of 59. Reading through your notes made me feel the love I felt from my mother. A mother, who loves her kids unconditionally. Though there are a lot of memories, I wish there were similar photos and notes from my mother leaving behind visual memories that I can hold onto when I feel so sad that it is hard to even breath.
    Wishing you all the patience and continued success with raising your family.
    Sending you lots of positive energy.. <3
