Ethan's First Food!

I really wanted to wait until Ethan was 6 months old to feed him any "real food", but it just wasn't going to happen! We could tell he was ready, as he was showing all the classic signs. So we finally gave in about a week after he turned 5 months. He was sooo interested in our food and would just watch the food go from our plates to our mouths. Poor guy:) His first meal was rice cereal and big sissy got to feed him his first bite!

Abigail's Birthday

Abigail turned 3 years old on July 18th! WOW...the only word I can use to describe how it feels. We are so blessed to have such a loving, passionate, smart, fun and chatty little girl. I am so amazed at how fast she is growing up...she has friends, is reading, loves church, art and gymnastics, and is so good to her baby brother. I could go on and on, but I won't...I'll just get to the pictures of her special day! Enjoy:)

Setting up for her birthday at the park...and playing baseball with daddy.
