My Miracle

Miracles come in all shapes and sizes. Over the last 3 weeks, we have had our own little miracle named Christina. Christina, you ask. Yes, a wonderful angel who on less than a week's notice came from Tennessee to stay with us for 12 days to help us out following my surgery. It was minor surgery but it required me to rest and do no lifting over 15 lbs (which is of course less than my 1-yr-old weighs). I needed a great solution on not much time and one that would create a calm and peace in our home. Christina (and her family) were our answer. Thanks God for providing this relationship years ago in Puyallup, WA so that our needs could be met this year in Washington, DC!

Cooper's First Birthday

April 25th was Cooper's First Birthday.
It was Elmo and pizza everywhere in a low-key family event. Must say it was one of the best birthdays ever planned at our house and it'll be our last "1st Birthday" so everyone was doting on our 'baby.'

Can't fathom life without this little guy so it's crazy to think just one short year ago he was joining us for the first time.
