When 2012 was approaching, we decided on setting some personal goals. At first it was just a Mom thing, but Abby wanted in on the action. We thought of some really great goals for Abby, knowing it would take a good amount of work to accomplish these goals, she was willing to put in the work.

Today Abby hit a 2 run, over the fence HOMERUN! Now, she is an excellent baseball player, and we all knew she had it in her, but even then it was such a wonderful shock!! She did it, she just creamed the ball way over the fence, and she ran with pride and with the biggest smile on her sweet face.

We of course were too busy to catch it on tape, but it's permanently sealed in mine and Ben's heart and mind for forever. I cried. I was so proud. So so so proud. She has put in the work, and she has reaped the benefits.

Well done Sweetheart.

1st for the 4th

Happy Birthday Jack!
Today was a day full of firsts for Jack. He got to drink whole creamy delicious milk!
He got to walk all over the house (He took his first real steps a few days before his birthday)
He got to sit front facing!!
He got his very own presents!

He was sung "Happy Birthday"
He got to have his very own yummy yummy cake!

And his own very large piece!!

And he devoured it all!!
Happy birthday sweet boy. It is as though I am still excited for you to be born, wondering what you'll look like and what color hair you'll have. I remember when I found out I was pregnant with you, shock would be a description of how I felt. Shortly followed by immense happiness. I knew that if God was going to bless us with you, that you must be a very special one. And very special you are. We love you forever. Happy Birthday Love.
