Family Photos

Our first family photos were such a success!  We meet Jessica out at a huge park in Lincoln in April.  I found Jessica online and loved her photos and her affordability.  I was thrilled to do an outdoor photo session with the natural scenery.  She did an amazing job and we are so happy with the way the photos came out.  You can check her out at:
Here's a few of my favorites.

Happy Birthday Joseph!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 2 years to this day that I went into labor and gave birth to our Joseph.  With every day, he is sweeter, more loving, more entertaining, and smarter than the day before.  I never thought that something so challenging and demanding could be so rewarding and fulfilling at the same time.

Here are some of Joseph’s 2-year stats:

  • Has 16 teeth and is working on his bottom 2-year molars
  • Weighs 34 lbs. & is 37 inches tall (such a big boy)
  • Is in a size 5 diaper, 3T clothes & size 8 shoes
  • Can almost count to ten (leaves out 4 and 5)
  • Can identify over 15 body parts, and a wide variety of other things
  • Is learning the alphabet and identify letters & colors
  • Knows almost all of the words to the “I Love You” song
  • Is putting 3 & 4 word sentences together
  • Loves coloring & “drawing” cats, dogs & fish
  • Absorbs everything we say and repeats almost everything
  • Is becoming more independent with certain activities
  • Can open doors, wash & dry his hands, and likes “swimming” in the bathtub
  • Loves reading ABC books & ones that identify objects
  • Is in LOVE with cars and making ramps out of his books

Happy Birthday Joseph!!  We love you so much and can't imagine our lives without you.
