Happy Birthday Tyler!


My baby turned 19 yesterday! Love this sweet boy. I gotta tell you, Tyler is probably the kindest young man I know. Really and truly. I love his tender heart. He is kind and thoughtful and sensitive. He is such a gentleman. Oh the girl that tries to break his heart...


We had such a fun day as a family. Although as you know, we were not a complete family yet... we were missing our sweet Emolyn like crazy. I get all teary-eyed just thinking about all our future birthday gatherings, when she will be with us! She is 3 lbs. 8 oz. now and once she gets the hang of nursing and bottle feedings, she's out of there! And this Grammy could not be more thrilled!
Anyway, Tyler and his big brother Shawn sang and played guitars together all afternoon. And man oh man, they sound sooo stinkin good together! What a treat to be serenaded by such talent while fixing dinner. You're lookin at one proud Mama here!
We spent hours around the table laughing and crying... affirming each other... sharing our hearts, our stories... as families do. And Randy & I could not be more grateful.

Hey Linda, tell Nicole I'm sending lots of encouragement her way with the nursing. I'm a big fan of it, so I root (har har) for other nursing mamas as much as I can.

And then please tell her I'm not a crazy stalker. =)

Oh, and happy birthday to Tyler! The cuppy-cakes looked de-lish.

Hi Linda - sounds like a great time! We had friends over last night, along with their little boy who is in PreK. Guess how much he weighed when he was born? 1 lb. 12 oz. Miracle boy and we love him so much! xo
