Chloe is Three

My girl turns three years old today! Hard to believe she's only been in our family for three years, because I simply can't recall life without her. Yes, I of course remember beyond the three years she's been in our lives, but Chloe is such a BIG part of our lives now that she seems to have always been here. She just has such a presence about her.

Believe me, the girl is LOUD! But she is also jam-packed with joy. I really believe that there is just so much happiness packed inside that little body that she could never be anything but loud. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Well...maybe when I'm trapped in a car with her on one of our long family road trip vacations it would be nice to be able to turn down the volume a bit. But other than that, wouldn't change a thing ;)


Chloe LOVES to have her picture taken and her photographer momma just happens to love taking pictures. It's a win-win! Here are a few I took this week to commemorate my little {three-year-old} lady{click on the photo to see it larger}...








And in honor of Black & White Wednesday, one in...you guessed it...black & white!


We love you so much Chloe Faith. My life is so much more joy-filled just by having you in it. You are such a blessing to your dad and I, and to your brothers.
