Griffin is 15 today.

Wow!  He is FIFTEEN, y'all!!  Mixed in with the BIG teenager energy is the sweet boy he was and the amazing man he is becoming.  Witnessing his growth, emotionally, intellectually and physically is awe inspiring.  Being in the trenches of parenting a teenager can be an arduous task but when we take a moment to step back and really see him, what he is accomplishing, who he is becoming, we are so proud.  We know all these moments of pushing and pulling him are worth the effort.  Milestones like birthdays remind me how soon this baby bird is going to fly away from the nest...and even though the end goal is to make sure he has all the skills he needs to soar, I am reminded to live in the moment with him.  Enjoy these days, friends.

Lucy is 11!

Another year has passed and yet it feels like only a moment.  In pursuit of living our best lives, time can fly by so quickly.  I try to enjoy every moment with Lucy, yet here she is surprising me yet again, turning 11.  What an incredible human being she is!  She has blown me away with her colorful and creative art works and writing pieces.  She thrills me with her drive for success and commitment to always doing her best.  She challenges me with her quick wit and incredibly logical arguments.  She inspires me to reach for the next rung, because she doesn't just dream about it, she makes it happen.  She is beautifully, challengingly, steadfastly HERSELF. I am so proud to be her Mama.
Lucy doesn't like posing for photos these days, so instead of torturing her, I am adding in some of the best I've gotten of her throughout the year.

Christina Lucia is 10

Our little girl has hit double digits!!  We could not be more proud of her amazing year.  From facing fears and pushing herself to new levels of excellence, she has impressed us time after time.  It's so cool to witness her intelligence, confidence and creativity continuously increase.  I feel so so so lucky to be her Mama.  Due to crazy weather around here, we did her photo shoot at school this year.  Enjoy!
