I am 27 years old and am blessed to have my husband Brady, as my partner and best friend. We have two children, Parker and Piper, our little yorkie. We are constantly amazed by the joy they bring into our lives and can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

The last 60 days have been crazy. We have experienced more joy than we could have ever imagined and less sleep than we can ever remember.

Here are some of the highlights:

We brought a newborn home to a construction zone...it's fine...

We learned that just because your first child will take a bottle and pacifier and sleep in the crib, doesn't mean your second will...we still cannot get her to take either...or sleep in the crib...

Parker began calling Rowan, 'Row Row' and telling her to 'be patient' when she starts crying in the car.

We have had our first trip to the zoo...and our second, third, etc...

Parker rode a horse for the first time.

We finished our floors...it is amazing what a difference it makes to be able to walk from your bedroom to the kitchen without a fear of tripping over uneven surfaces.

We got our dog back...she definitely missed brady's parents, but she is starting to make herself at home again!

Parker became obsessed with bull-riding and now wears a long-sleeve shirt and jeans every day.  Oh, and did I mention that he also debuted his southern accent and sings 'Round Here' to just about anyone who will listen?  Oh, and he now takes it upon himself to teach other kids at the zoo to be bull-riders, and acts as their rodeo clown...so thoughtful, ha:).
Rowan smiled for the first time...my heart melted...

And turned one month old...

Brady became handy...the floors, his first garbage disposal, and light fixtures...he was so proud!
We gave Row her first bath.

We went to our first football game!

I tried to grill chicken for  brady (when I say 'for' I mean 'so he didn't have to cook it'  if I really wanted to do something 'for' him, it would be beef)...and forgot about it...

P started Pre-School...again:)

We celebrated the 106th birthday of a very special lady.
