TA!!! DA!!!!

Last weekend, I started another surprise transformation for Lauren.  It started with an old dresser from my bedroom at mom and dad's.  My dad cut out all of the drawer ledges and stuff.  Then, it was my turn.  I started with...
After a miss with the first color, a few trips to Spencer for various supplies and couple of burnt finger tips turned out pretty cute.

The important thing is I think she liked it.

Most of the time I am the one that considers myself the lucky one...but in this case, I think she should consider herself luck that we are in this one together.

The 42 Month Version those of you that are mathematically challenged, that would mean that baby girl is three and a half years old today.  She came into this world in a stubborn, stubborm way.  The NICU doctors described her as the most easygoing and laid back baby they had ever seen.  Ever since then she has been that way.  To this very day, she is the easiest to get a long with.  She can go with the flow.  She is so adaptable.  She is my little love.  I couldn't imagine my life with out her.  We are in this together for many, many, many more of these to come.

PS - for those of you who don't know, I have took a picture of her in this chair every month on her birthday for the first year of her life.  Since then, we have marked the half and regular birthday with the tradition.  To see the entire progression of her growth, visit the album on my Facebook page.
