{ Rewind }

Thank you each for your kind words and comments on my last post. What a boost they gave me. Seriously, I feel so loved. I had put off and put off putting up a picture of Jack and I, not because I don't think he's cute, I am already convinced on that point, but because I feel and have for a while like I look like a hippo. So your reassurances not only surprised me but made me realize how much grace is in the eye of the beholder. Thank you.

And now to backtrack a little. Here are some pictures of Annabelle taken during our wonderful Christmas in ID.

The next few were taken on my sister in law Deb's amazing new camera, a Christmas present from her sweet husband.

These are off of my new camera, a Christmas gift from my Mom and Dad. Which I was shocked and oh so very excited to open. Thanks guys, I still can't believe it.

As hard as it is to believe, one month from today, she turns three. Strawberry cupcakes have already been requested, as has a visit from Poppy and Nana. And I am hoping it will be a gloriously sunny day, like the one she was born on and maybe we'll be able to sneak in a trip to the zoo, to "visit the monkeys." And we have been telling her for months now...after your birthday a little bit, then your baby brother will be here.
And my goodness are we ever all excited about that.
