Sadie wanted to decorate her own cupcakes for her birthday treat. Everything was very pink for her party, but she actually isn't all that partial to pink. It was just kind of coincidence. She was having a hard time getting the candles blown out though, so I had to help her.
Mercedes was born on March 25th, 2008 in Utah. She was such a beautiful baby, from the moment she was born. She always looked like a porcelain doll with her Angelina Jolie lips.
She fit right into the family from the minute we brought her home. Avri just loved holding her. At the time I felt like Avri was such a big girl. Now I look back how how little she still was. She was still a baby herself, really.
Mercedes was our most high maintenance baby as far as time. She cried a little more and didn't sleep quite as well as the others, but she was such a sweet little thing that I didn't mind.
As Sadie grew, we realized that she was as big a tease as her daddy. And she had him wrapped around her tiny little fingers in no time at all. She had the cutest little faces and expressions, and she did this little eyebrow raise thing that looked like her way of saying "Aren't I cuter than you can believe?"

And again on her third birthday.
We love you Mercedes and everything that you bring to our family!
