Aaron’s first two weeks

He may be my fifth little one but that doesn’t stop me from taking a ton of pictures of my sweet little one! It may, however, stop me from doing anything with those pictures. Or at least make it harder to do so. But here is my attempt to share some. :)

Introducing Aaron

Introducing Aaron

Aaron arrived December 2nd at 4:11pm.  I had been hoping to make it to 39 weeks along and be officially “full term” but he decided to come one day shy of that.  Ah well.  :) He weighed 7lbs 8oz and was 21″ long.  Though apparently he shrunk about an inch by the time he was […]

A friend of mine recently experienced a house fire.  Though it wasn’t related to her experience, one preventative measure she mentioned was to make sure you don’t have lint build-up in your dryer.  Then some other friends started talking […]
