Baby Party 2013

Back in November my sister threw me a baby shower which included some yummy food from Emily's, a couple of friends, and a lot of family.  One of my favorite things she did was have everyone fill out an entry in the journal below with encouraging words.  I saved the book and didn't read any entires until the day I gave birth.  Mike and I also wrote love letters to each other in it :-)  I held the prayer beads my family and friends looped together for me and read their kind words just before bringing my baby girl into the world on December 6, 2013, two days before my 32nd birthday.

Please Touch Museum

I was thinking that maybe I should update this page in case anyone's following who's not my friend or family.  Our sweet baby girl was born on December 6, 2013 at 8AM via c-section!  But before I start documenting our life as a family of four, I'd like to start catching up on all the good stuff that went on as we waited for her to make her arrival.  This summer consisted of settling in to our new place, getting to know the area, and spending time with family.

Back in September we made a trip to the Please Touch Museum in Philly.  Here are the best shots of the day:

I'm feeling too pregnant to do much lately and this lazy Saturday morning is no exception.  So we dug out some old pics from when Mikey was 18 mos - 2 years old and it's so cool to see how much he's changed!  He was so different a year ago!  So sweet and gentle, barely talked, moved kinda slowly.  Now we can barely keep up with him.  I found this series of pictures we took on Mike's phone one day just sitting on our couch.  We don't get very many pictures of the three of us together, probably because it's been just the three of us for quite some time and there's no one else to take the picture.  We've been so busy adjusting and getting together with family and friends here that I forgot what it's like to just be us. These are a good reminder:
