Peyton's Blessing

We blessed Peyton on 09/12/09 and it was so great! Lynlee and Gunnar came down and Rorke was blessed that same day, it was fun to be able to do that together. Family and friends came from all over to be there and we appreciate all the love and support!! It was a great day and Josh did an awesome job. I'll post more pictures when I get them.

We will never forget...

Sept 11, 2001 was such a scary day for me, I hope I never have to feel that way again. I remember I was getting ready for school when the 1st plane hit the Twin Towers and I was watching when the 2nd plane hit. It was truly terrifying, before that 2nd plane hit no one knew what was really going on. As soon as that happened it became apparent it was much more than just an accident.

I hope we never take for granted our freedom, and all those who give their lives to ensure it. This post is in memory of all those who lost their lives that day.

I took the above picture in July 2001 when I visited NYC with my cousin. I didn't realize that it would become more than just a tourist photo, but a reminder of what used to be and how much our country has changed since that day.

5 Years!

Josh and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary yesterday, I can't believe it has already been that long! My parents watched the kids while we went out to dinner and it was great to have some alone time (thanks so much Mom and Dad!!).

Josh I love you so much, it's amazing how much love can grow in 5 years! You are an incredible husband and father. Thank you for being such a great provider, you are the best. These last 5 years have been wonderful and I can't wait for the next 5! Love you!!

Growing Like a Weed

Peyton had her 4 month checkup the other day and she is getting so big! She weighed 13.5 lbs and was 26.75 inches long. Her weight is in the 50th percentile, and her length puts her in the 95th! I knew she was growing but I didn't expect her to be so tall. She's developing perfectly and doing all that she's supposed to. We love our little nugget!
