Cortnie's 3rd Birthday

        Let's take a look at where this miricle child started!
                            February 13, 2008
              Heart surgery 1 week after she was born!

Cortnie the morning after her surgery! We think she was saying "I don't want to do this anymore"

And now she is a very healthy 3 year old weighing in at 42 lbs!

She wanted a Pooh Bear cake... so mom cheated and had someone else make it!

Cortnie loved it!

She finally blew out her own candles this year!

Cortnie enjoying her cake and ice cream! She was a little upset when I had to cut Pooh Bear up!

She got a bike from mom and dad! Thanks to all that came to eat cake and ice cream!
 Thank you also for the gifts!


  1. I lost all my blogs when bloglines went down and was bought out. I just figured you'd taken a break like everyone else :)
    What a happy surprise to see you blogging away :) well, ok once...but still.

    I can't believe how big she is. 3 really ?
    It looks like a great party. Well all except the part where you cut winnie the pooh up...but I suppose it had to be.

    You are a fantastic mom Ash. These little details you work so hard to make happen are what they will remember :)

    Mishew !

  2. Wow. Has it been three years already? I remember when you were in Denver for her surgery and I was so worried for you. She is adorable. Love the cake.
