Blessing #26 Elizabeth Ann

Meet Miss Elizabeth Ann, my baby sisters, baby girl. I've got so many photos to post...but want to show mom and dad first.

I was honored to be a part of my sister's important day. Moments before the delivery Brain asked Kate, "Are you ready." The two laughed and cried. "You're going to be a daddy." my sister said to Brain. To which I said "You're about to be a momma!" And Kate said "You're going to be an aunt, are you excited!?" Well YES! And Brain replied "One little girl is about to change all our lives!" You go Brain! This little baby girl is coming into this world needing help, without speech, and is changing the dynamics of our homes and stretching our hearts.

No one should ever doubt their worth based on their own opinions. You can doubt your worth, but before you could even talk you were important...just as our newest little family member is.

Mister Abe

My mom made some comment about how Abe might be healing to our family. I remember thinking that was a funny comment...but ironically he has been. We love him! I was off sick from work the day before Macey's birthday...and I just took Gavin to lunch because it was summer break and he was home...and we went to pet smart after lunch...and enters Abe the kitten. I still cannot believe how it came to be.

Now I look forward to seeing Abe at the end of each work day. I love watching him and Jack play and attack together. I love how he is happy to see me. I love how he is a small ball of energy awaiting our attention.

I love my bad ass husband who hates cats admire him, even if he makes him sneeze.

Kitten Abe can be so annoying when he attacks you upon entry of our own home. When he pounces you and you are asleep.

Somedays he is the only happiness in our home...and for that I will marvel at how he came to be a part of our family.

Never say NEVER! Because a cat was a NEVER and now I cannot image our lives without him.

#24 Reconnecting with good friends

A few weeks ago we traveled to Michigan to visit with our dear friends...and Macey's BFF Stella. Here is the gang all back together. Notice how I think I should have gotten big Gavin a hat too!
