Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl

3 days old

 My Darling Puddin Pop,
I love you more than words can say.  Today you turn 5 and I want to Thank You for all you've given and taught me.  You are independent, funny, charming and sweet.  You are also a bit of a drama princess, but in a good way.

1st Birthday

I learn from you every day.  Mostly to not take everything so seriously but also how to be a better listener and to give more of myself than I have ever wanted to before.

2nd Birthday

You are creative and tough.  A fairy Princess on some days and an I-can-do-anything-boys-can-do-and-like-it girl on other days.  You love the water and everything outside.  Tree climbing is a new favorite activity and used to be one of my favorite things to do as well. 

3rd Birthday
I love that you've managed to get the best parts of all of us.  Your grandmother's eyes (which Daddy also has) and sweetness, my nose, wit, and independence.  You have Papa's ears and the stubbornness comes from Daddy and I.

4th Birthday

I love you more each day and can't imagine my life without you.  May you continue to grow in good health and become the person you are meant to be.

I love you baby,


  1. Awwwwww!!! Happy 5th Birthday, Puddin Pop!

    And, Rachele, your post brought a tear to my eye!

  2. Meleah~ I was fine typing it but reading it to her this morning was a total different story...and she made me read it twice.

  3. She is sweet. I remember your other header with the pic of her, I love that photo!

  4. I wanted something Summer-y. The other pic is at the bottom. It's one of my favorites too.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
