. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Lauren,

May 7, 2013

Dear Lauren,

tee, necklace and flip flops: old navy      pants: target

Besides my pants, everything I am wearing is from Old Navy.  I really wish I could find away for them to pay me to advertise their clothes.  

These pants are extremely comfortable but there is a major problem in that they have to tie under my belly and I felt like they were going to fall down all day long.  


Today is this sweet boy's 4th birthday.  I can't believe it was four years ago I heard his little cry on the phone right after he was born, and anxiously awaited until I could meet him a few weeks later.  I remember feeling like I couldn't imagine loving him any more, and I still feel the same way. 

You have done such an amazing job raising a tender, compassionate, smart and adorable little boy Lauren! I'm so thankful to have you as an example as I enter motherhood.  

Happy birthday to the sweetest, funniest and cutest little boy I know.  I love you more than you know Travis James!


Speaking of Travis, the other night he prayed "Thank you for the baby in Katie's belly and for the baby in Chris' belly.  We love their family."  

So while he really is smart, maybe you need to remind him only girls can have babies. 

I love you Lauren and am so happy I get to see you in a week.

Those pants look COMF!
What a sweet little boy with the sweetest (and funniest) little prayer. :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Awww, how cute was your nephew's prayer? They say the funniest things at that age. I feel the same way about being paid by a lot of the craft stores. I swear these retailers owe their lives to bloggers!!

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I wish ON would pay me to advertise their clothing too. I feel like that's all I have bought lately. Surely they must have some sort of loyalty program for us!

What a sweet nephew you have! Love his prayer.

1. Gorgeous hair! 2. Look at that growing baby bump! Love it! 3. Seriously, we should be friends! Target and ON are my two go-to stores! Would love to spend a day shopping with you, we could even try thrifting! ;-)

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

It's so crazy to watch people's bellies get bigger and bigger. It's almost time! P.S. I prayed for your mom last night.

I think I have those same pants!! From Target YEARS ago! Anyhow I wore them like crazy when I was pregnant with PFB a couple years ago. I thought they were great summer "maternity" pants

Tessa W said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I so agree with the old navy comment. I'm pretty sure I wear something from there every day. And your nephew is so adorable!
