Family, meet Sophia!

Sophia and I are heading out west to visit my family. It will be the first time they are meeting her, and I couldn't be more excited!

I am going to take tons of pictures of her with my amazing Grandma! It's going to be so sweet to see her holding my little angel. I know my grandma is really looking forward to this.

And of course she will also be meeting my mom, dad, step-mom, step-dad, etc. It's going to be so much fun.

The down side is I wont be able to post pictures until I return - bummer... I know!

But when I do post... there will be pictures galore!

So I have been MAJORLY slacking at taking pictures of the kids lately!

A couple of weeks ago I finally printed all the pictures off our memory card, and let me tell you, it took me FOREVER to get them into albums, BUT I am very pleased to say that I finally have all six years of my life with Michael into albums, including Wesley all the way up to Sophia.

I guess I am hesitant to take pictures because I know I will have to eventually put them into an album!

Needless to say - here are some cute pics.

Wesley was trying to cuddle with Sophia

Here is Sophia with her NICU doctor, Brooke. Brooke's boyfriend James is friends with Michael and we found that out when Sophia was in the NICU. We're so blessed to have James and Brooke as friends. Brooke just loves to cuddle Sophia when they come to hang out.

The princess enjoying her swing

Okay - how funny is this picture? Her swing was in motion and I was trying to snap a picture of her happy and content little face, and this is what I got! Don't you just wonder what she's thinking!?! Maybe... "What are YOU looking at mommy!?!" haha

Wesley's in preschool!

Wesley started preschool today. He was VERY excited!

I got to see his classroom and watch him do some of the activities while I filled out paperwork. It was so much fun watch him do circle time, and learn to do the pledge!

He has his very own cubby!
Here at the house with his big boy backpack on... all ready for school!
This is Sophia with Michael's cousin Melanie. (Melanie was visiting from Germany)
Melanie absolutely LOVED Sophia! It was so sweet to watch the two of them together. Sophia really liked Melanie too.
I had to post this - Wesley had a cold a few days ago so we gave him a little something for his runny nose, and it knocked him out! He fell asleep in his closet on his stuffed animal!
That's all for now!

A friend of mine made Sophia's birth announcements, and I was so impressed, that I decided I wanted to learn how to do it too! So she told me what computer program she used and it turns out we have that program on our computer!

I decided to fool around with it and see what I could come up with - and this is my end result:

Now, this is not the announcement I am mailing out - as the one my friend made is MUCH better, but I thought it would be fun to post this. I am going to make our Christmas cards with this program... I think they will turn out pretty cute!

So a big thanks to Michele for the creative idea to make these!

This is for Harold

As most of you know, we have family visiting from Germany right now. We are having so much fun visiting with them! We do a lot of laughing together, and that's always fun.

Well, one of the people visiting is Michael's 10 year old cousin Harold. Harold is an AMAZING dancer and actor. I am surprised to see such talent in such a young person!

Harold did a dance for me and let me get it on video - and he requested to have it on our blog so he could be on the internet - so here it is.

Here you go Harold! Love you!

(Before you view his video - you will need to mute our music at the bottom of our blog)

Our little angel! Isn't she cute?

This picture was taken by my best friend Janet ( )

She took many more... but I will have to post them later!

Enjoy this one!
