Happy 5th Birthday, Isaiah!!

Wow! Five years!!! Another milestone- we have now entered the school age years :) Isaiah is such a smart, caring, silly young man, filled with so much potential. He is fun-loving and sweet. And of course, super ornery!

Even though most people already know, I thought I should make an official blog announcement :)

I am 17 weeks along and doing well. I hope to find out if our baby is a boy or a girl sometime next month.

Happy First Birthday!!!

One year ago the most precious pink bundle as laid in our arms.

The countdown was complete and Tora Joy arrived at 3:07pm on Thursday, March 3rd, 2011!

An adorable 8 pounds 3 onuces, 20 1/2 inches long

At first Big Brother wasn't too sure of Little Sister :) He was pretty shy and quiet on that first night; but he quickly warmed up and they have become the best of friends!

We spent three days in the hospital just snuggling and cuddling our daughter - then it was time to go home to do that some more!!

And now, here we are, one year later! She still loves to snuggle and cuddle in between the crawling and chasing and playing and laughing!
