Hello and Happy Friday! I know I always say that when starting these posts, but today is a very special and happy Friday…Today, Hayden and Hadley turn 11! 11 on 11.20.20 🥳
As always, I’m linking up with Andrea and Erika for this week’s Friday Favorites post. Of course, birthdays are always my favorite. I have zero chill when it comes to celebrating birthdays in this house!
Today, I’m looking back on this year and giving my two faves a little shout out on their special day!
Happy 11th birthday…
…to my two most favorite people in the world!
Last year I shared a post with 10 things I love about each of them…and shared some of my favorite pics of them through the years.
While they don’t read my blog (maybe someday?), I still want to write to them…
Dear Hayden and Hadley,
This year, to celebrate you turning 11, I thought I’d share my 11 favorite pics of each of you this year!
Hayden, you were “Baby A” born at 12:08 p.m, so your trip down memory lane is first…
You love to be outdoors, and look so cute in a stocking cap!
You are a great friend. You cherish having quality friendships over quantity of friendships.
You know how to relax (and your tan seems to last forever!)
You are an adventurous eater, and you can eat your weight in oysters!
You can be pretty serious, but when you smile, it’s the sweetest.
I admire your quiet confidence (& occasional flex after scoring two on the basketball court) 😉
You give it your all when you are doing what you love.
You take chances.
You are humble.
And…you like to have fun!
Hayden, being your mom is one of my greatest gifts, and seeing you work through the ups and downs of life makes me proud to be your mom.
Well, you may have been born one minute later at 12:09 p.m., but you’ve been dominating the world ever since!
I love that your inner beauty matches your outer beauty.
Like your brother, you like to have fun!
You love the surf and the sand and time spent with your family.
Your whole life, you’ve gone either 0 or 100. No in between. You rarely sit still, but when you do…
You’re always smiling.
You are graceful and exude positive energy.
You aren’t afraid to try something new.
You never give up.
You are a good, inclusive friend.
You are confident.
And…you are a free spirit.
Hadley, being your mom is one of my greatest gifts. Continue to let your kind heart lead you through life, but your confidence and sass will come in handy too!
Happy Happy birthday!
I love you!
Y’all, babies don’t keep! Being a mom is the hardest yet most rewarding job I’ll ever have. They aren’t perfect, nor am I, but I feel pretty lucky that I get to be on the sidelines of life cheering them on.
And since it’s Friday, I’ll go ahead and share my weekly recap of my posts this week.
Thank you so much for reading. Don’t forget to check out the other ladies’ posts too!
Have a great weekend.
