Then & Now

One year ago today we got THE call, and we saw our son for the first time! It was a long awaited moment, but worth every second of the wait and we would do it all again and wait twice as long if we had to (for those of you who know me personally, you know that's saying something...)!

So, Happy Referraliversary Reeves! We love you so much and are so lucky to get to be your parents!

That's right... we're still here!

Wow, time certainly flies! We had an amazing summer full of lots of "firsts." There are many, many photos to share, but for now... here is one from our most recent adventure - Halloween!

(sorry it's not better, that's what happens when I try to get photos off my phone!)

Seriously though, isn't he the cutest dragon you have ever seen!
