Something in the Water

Its time for another “congratulatory” post for recent friends. I am so excited to announce that our friends Amber and Tommy are adding to their roost and making their son, Tayden, a big brother. The newest addition is due in June and while they are extremely happy and excited, they are also a bit wary too. Please keep this pregnancy in your prayers as Amber gave birth to Tayden when she was only 24 weeks pregnant. He is a thriving, happy two-year-old now but it was extremely precarious in the early months. Congrats Amber and Tommy, we are so happy for you guys!!

We have some family friends that recently made their parents, grand-parents, twice-over in less than four weeks! Abby, the youngest sister, and her husband had a baby girl four weeks ago and named her Betsy; Betsy weighed 6 lbs, 5 ozs at birth. On October 15th, Abby’s brother, Nate, and his wife had a baby boy named Parker; Parker weighed 9 lbs, 5ozs at birth. The newly-born cousins have been given the nicknames “Beauty and the Beast”. Aren't they just beautiful?!? Congrats to the whole family!!

Its time for a baby roll-call again!

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.
