Birthday Girl

We are home! We flew in on Friday and were welcomed by many of our friends and family. It was a wonderful moment and I will be sure to post pictures soon. I have neglected my blog a bit lately. I have so many things running around my head that I want to post, but I am a little busy chasing the cute little girl who is running around my house. Also, like any new, exhausted mommy, I sleep when my baby sleeps.

Today is my precious girl's 3rd birthday. I am so thankful that the Lord made it possible for us to have her home by her birthday. We celebrated at our house on Saturday with some of our family.
My sis-in-law took these pictures, and I think they came out so cute.
I love my beautiful girl, and so do her big brothers. I have loved watching them get to know each other.
Her daddy is pretty fond of her, too. I am pretty sure she has us all wrapped around her little finger.

We helped her open a few birthday gifts. She was so excited about her baby stroller. She loves taking care of her dolls and pushing them in the stroller.
She also loves her sweet little elephant!
I am pretty sure she thought we were crazy when we put a flaming cupcake in front of her while singing "Happy Birthday."
She wouldn't touch the cupcake, but she loved the ice cream.
Mario made an appearance at Mia's party. Jax is always dressing up. He and Mia are going to have so much fun playing together.
It breaks my heart to think about the birthdays that I have missed, but I am praising God that she is here now and that I won't have to miss anymore. I am so glad my beautiful girl was born and that God led us to her.
We love you, Mia Grace Mestawet!! We hope you have fun being 3!!!
