happy day elisha!

here is our spirited little man sporting a mohawk ... he is so much fun- we are so thankful to share life with him!

hard to believe it has been two years since we first met, and also hard to believe that we've only been parenting him for two years-- it seems like it has flown and at the same time like it has been forever!
in your own words, my little poopsey "happy day" ... you are your favorite number--- 2!

happy day andrew! (enjoy the twilight of your twenties)

happy birthday to my handsome husband! i know your birthday has been a bit overshadowed by the births of our children-- but i want you(and the world apparently---as if the world actually reads this silly blog!) to know how glad i am that you were born 29 years ago! you get dressed up- even when you don't like to and you dance with me even at times when you don't feel comfortable about it ;-)

you are the sweetest father there could be to our son-- and a great story reader/ teller...
and the newest thing you are to me is- a loving father to my (our) little girl...
i love spending this life with you-- and lately -seeing your face look at me through the eyes of our little girl ;-)
happy day- as elisha has been saying
(you must know we love you by the fact that we are waiting til you get home to start eating the cake... despite many tears from elisha, and therefore many tears almost shed by myself)

her... "will you get her", "just look at her", "do you hear her?"... i have been surrounded by boys at home until now. it is new to talk about "her"... new and very nice!

anna jane (she will just go by "anna") is well loved by all the boys in this house- including otis ;-) elisha has been so sweet to help her pat his beloved ducks head and he has even given her a truck a couple of times when she was crying ;-) thank you for all of your prayers over this transition for our family- i feel like things are going well! i will have to post about miss anna's arrival- wow! is all i have time for right now...

anna- we have enjoyed our first three weeks with you in our arms!
