celebrating maizie

today we celebrated maizie's 11th birthday...

oh my goodness... look at how little she is here... where does the time go?
dressing a little girl can be so much fun... this little cherry dress and hat was so sweet...
if only i could turn back time... i'd scoop her right up... look at those little baby teeth...


 one thing about miss maizie... she almost always wore a hat...
unless, of course, the focus was to be on her other accessories... fancy earrings, don't ya think?... {that one makes me smile}
she had a love for "rella"... so much that we went to disney two years in a row... 
always smiling...
and kind to others...
 artistic...
and smart...
 a great big sister and role model to marina...
 i'm so proud to be her mom...



{she's a true miracle in my eyes... before her, i had a miscarriage... it was devastating... then i had her and everything went great, although i never fully relaxed or enjoyed the pregnancy for fear that something would go wrong... after her i had another miscarriage... and then another... each miscarriage brought me so much sadness... but also made me so, so thankful for the one, healthy, happy, beautiful, little girl that i did have... how she made it into this world, i'll never know but what a blessing she has continued to be...}

so... today there were new polka dot pants... {thanks, grandma connie}
and presents...

 there was time spent with friends... and cupcakes... and dinner at chili's {because it's her fave}... 

she was so happy...

it was a great day spent celebrating our girl...

have a happy day~
