Can I Just Say...

...that for as naughty as Alexander can be, he is a GREAT big brother!

"I love Declan so much, and he's not even being fuzzy!"

I just thought I should document that.

"Cheese!  Declan isn't saying cheese!"

You know, for the times when I need to be reminded :)

"I'm holding his teeny tiny little hand!"

Declan had his check up for his heart today, and his heart rate was in the 160s.  Yeah!  It's normal and the pediatrician thinks his fast heart rates must have been a result of the colds he had.  

Both me and Declan were like, WOOT WOOT!! 

Raise your hands in the air like you just don't care!

And because we are planning and prepping for his Baptism this Saturday, I wanted to take a minute and say a Happy early Anniversary to my best friend.  We went out to celebrate a few nights ago, and this image perfectly captures how I dreamed our anniversaries would be!  

Why does the baby always need to eat as soon as they bring my food?

We have never had an anniversary without a little one around, and that's exactly how we had hoped our home would be when we married 12 years ago.  Thanks, Phil, for making all my dreams come true!  I love you more now than on our wedding day, and I loved you a LOT on our wedding day :)

  17. Hi Colleen,

    Thank you for visiting my blog! It is a pleasure to meet you. I have to say that I have not tried DD's coffee since I am (was before pregnancy) a bit of a black coffee fanatic. We religiously brew at home. I will have to keep them in mind when we are in a pinch.

    Your baptism post was wonderful and lovely. I feel honored to have "shared" this special moment with your family. Your son's comment cracked me up. I was literally drinking tea and almost spit it out of my mouth!

    I hope you and your husband had a wonderful anniversary! Happy 12 years!
