Dear Little Tashina,
Today you are 9 years old. I still can’t believe God choose me to be your Mommy. I can still remember the moment I learned you were growing in my belly. I was so scared! I was afraid I wouldn’t be good enough for you. I was afraid I wouldn’t be the Mommy you needed and deserved. But I knew that no matter what I would fight for you, I would love you with all my heart, and I would cherish all the moments we share together in this adventure as Mommy and Daughter. I vowed to be your Mom, adventure in life, to love you unconditionally, to help you learn all life has to offer you, and even be your friend when those moments called for it. You my love brought our family together in more ways then you will ever understand. You showed us how to love, how to grow, and how to become the Mommy & Daddy you need in life. There isn’t a day that comes along that you aren’t smiling and giggling with us. You are full of such life that you make all those around you cherish as well. You are sweet, caring, artistic, silly, an AMAZING big sister, a loving daughter, and a best friend to all those you come in contact with. YOU MY LITTLE BEAUTY still teach your family daily just how amazing life is… And how to love unconditionally without fear or regrets. I love watching the young woman God is turning you in to. Everyday I see you determined to grow and learn about everything around you. I admire your strength more then you will ever know. You my sweet little beauty our God’s gift to us. Your Mommy and Daddy couldn’t be any more proud of the sweet young lady you are becoming… and all share with those around you.
I love watching how you make sure you dress up everyday… You are our little fashionista. I love how you see art and beauty in all things. I just love our little Mommy-Coffee-Dates we have together. I love how you have such patience and love for your little brother. I love how you get creative when you’re in your artistic mode. I love how even though you are such a girly-girl you still LOVE to play in the mud and get dirty with the boys. I love watching how you listen to every word your Daddy shares with you with such open eyes. I love even more how when your Daddy is teaching you things, no matter what it is… YOU my dear make sure you learn it no matter how long it takes you to get it right. You my little beauty are an adventure we are blessed to watch grow in this life.
Tashina thank you for blessing our family with your love !!!

Little beauty baking in the belly…
The day she was born… Her Daddy took this picture of me holding her. ❤
She found the PERFECT pumpkin and wouldn’t let it go. Her Daddy was laughing so hard. 🙂
OH YEAH! They still make the same looks when watching football together, lol.
She took Mama’s coca-cola and wouldn’t give it back, lol. This is her Grams FAVORITE picture! ❤
I was telling her about the ocean… It was her first time seeing it. And she wouldn’t take her eyes off of it. ❤
OH YEAH! SHE LOVES SALT AND VINEGAR CHIPS! She kept cooing each time she went to eat one… And no one was allowed to take the bag from her, lol.
This is her best friend Hali! They LOVED swimming together… She never left Hali’s side. ❤
Hali’s Mama Miss Patty… Miss Patty can do NO WRONG! She is Tashina’s buddy in life. 🙂
Just sitting on the table at the pool eating lunch with her Aunt Brittany… And making silly faces together, lol.
Daddy calls this the ‘Zoolander’ face, lol.
Her imagination got the best of her… This was when she was pretending to be some little smoothie girl who broke out of jail. (She LOVES smoothies and wanted one that morning)
My heart melts every time I see this picture. The look on her face as she is looking at her Daddy. PRICELESS !!!! ❤
She wanted to pass out lollipops for everyone. So we made a bucket full of them with little papers added to them to look like flowers. She ran to everyone she saw and gave them one. This man was sitting outside of Starbucks after we got our Coffee-Free Frappuccinos. He was so sad and the moment she gave him one… HE SMILED FROM EAR TO EAR AND WAS GIGGLING! She made his day. ❤
She was beauty for Halloween that year. And was such a beauty for sure. ❤
If you couldn’t tell already… She loves hunting for the perfect pumpkin, lol. (I could do a blog on those pictures alone, lol)
Being silly with her Brother…
I catch her reading EVERYWHERE AND ANYWHERE! ❤
Kool-Slushies with her Brother at her school… 🙂
I adore hoe she looks at her little brother… ❤
This one was taken last week while we were in Mississippi. (More of those to come.)
