Happy Holidays!


I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know we did. Last year we were in the hospital with Andrew for two months so being home and with family was the best thing in the world. My husband and I just kept hugging Andrew and so thankful he was healthy this year.

I wanted to wait until this post to give our wonderful news! I am happy to announce we are going to have a baby girl in April. So far everything is healthy. I was so nervous getting the sonogram telling us if she had spina bifida because the fetal surgery isn't available the 2nd time around. I would hate not being able to do for her as I have done for Andrew. Luckily she doesn't have it so I don't have to worry about it. The doctors have been so great about making sure everything is going well. I have ultrasounds almost every three weeks. As it gets closer I will have one every week. They definitely don't want to take any chances. We are so excited to meet her. Of course this time around I'm hoping we get to wait to meet her on her due date versus too early!

Here are some pictures from Christmas!  I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

Yikes it has been months since I updated this blog. I am so sorry! Life has been so busy...still no excuse. I will make sure to update after Christmas to put up pictures. We have so many cute ones already but I will put them all up at once.

I do want to put some from Halloween even though it seems so long ago now.

As far as what Andrew has been up to..he is a little crazy man. He is still the sweetest little guy even while going through the terrible two's. We are so blessed to have him. I know I am biased because I am his mom but he just brings so much joy wherever he goes. He is just such a happy kid. Okay enough gushing about his personality. I will now gush on his accomplishments..haha. He has been walking over 20 steps on his own. He does have a walker he uses to walk long distances but the therapist thinks we will only need it for a little while longer. Overall he has been doing really well after his surgery he had last year at this time.

We took him to Disneyland over Thanksgiving and he had such a great time. He did so well. We were there from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm and he was awake and excited the whole time. I was very impressed.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday so far! This is my favorite time of the year so I am enjoying every second. Like I mentioned I will post some Christmas pictures after the holidays.

Below are some from what we have been up to over the last few months (Halloween, our trip to California and our trip to Telluride).
