Springtime!

I love spring. And this year even more so because I can share it with Hannah, who like a lot of kids, loves being outside. She loves pointing at birds, her absolute favorite and picking up bark and dirt from the ground and of course eating it. That part isn't as fun for me because I have to watch her like a hawk, but she has been loving spending time in our backyard with the few nice days we've had. Below are some of those pics from outside, and then of course one or two sporting her sunglasses. Well, my sunglasses, but she thinks they are hers.

Hannah's first steps!

Hannah's first steps happened on the day we returned from Philly, the 23rd. Maybe she was just so sick of sitting on the plane for so many hours that she said, that's enough, I'm walking! She's hasn't exactly taken off running yet, but she taken steps every day and getting a little more comfortable, my guess would be that in a week or two, she'll be off and running! Here's a video of the momentous occasion!

Our trip to Philly

Well, once again we had a great trip in Philadelphia and Hannah enjoyed seeing all her cousins, aunt/uncle, grandparents and extended family. Part of our trip included a trip to the Jersey shore at my dad's house (the new brighton) to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday. Captions below explain a little bit about the pics, but the pictures speak volumes!

The whole family on the porch at my dad's house down the shore. The kids aren't looking the greatest but it's hard to get them all to look at the camera and smile!!!










Hannah giving Starry one of the many kisses from this past week....

Laundry Day


So the other day was laundry day. Well, Hannah had almost no clean clothes because it had been over a week since I had done laundry. So I put her in the below outfit thinking, well, we're not really going out and really she doesn't know that she doesn't match at all. And I really like each of the pieces separately. But then John came home for lunch and told me that her outfit was just too much not to take a picture of because it was so awful! He had to document this day as the day I didn't care what my daughter wore. Is it really all that bad??? She doesn't look too upset about it....

IT'S A.......


BOY!!! We can hardly even believe it. We are so excited and so surprised and so....I'm not sure....just really excited. I had felt like it was going to be a boy, I know everyone says that, but I really did. But I'm not sure I was actually prepared for the words, you're having a boy. So now begins the process of having to get all new boy clothes and bedding and blankets and so forth. Hannah is going to have a little brother. Wow. We are very very excited to welcome Isaiah Robert on or around August 2nd! :) Here's a picture of the cute little guy.
