Hold On

I heard this song today and it reminded me so much of Nathan's parents and how they held on to each other through the tornado.  I really like Michael Buble and I love this song!  Enjoy!

Praying for the People of Joplin

My husband's parents were some of the many people who survived the massive tornado in Joplin, but they lost their home and cars.  Head on over to Nathan's blog to view pictures of what they crawled out of and what is left of their home.  We are all praying for everyone that was affected by this devastating storm.

Are You Awake?

One of our biggest challenges these days is keeping this little guy awake until bedtime around 7:30 pm.  If he even gets 15 minutes of sleep during the day he is awake until 10 pm or later.  As you can see we didn't succeed the day this picture was taken!

All Wrapped Up

Whenever Contessa is in her swing or on the couch, Layla loves to wrap her up 
and fix the blanket to her liking. Contessa doesn't seem to mind!

Daffodils 2011

This year, as we attempted to take our annual daffodil pictures, I quickly realized I needed to significantly lower my expectations.  It was cold, windy and the sun was burning out our retinas.  Gunnar was being a total crabby pants.  Julius was insisting on smiling weird.  Layla kept looking around making weird faces.  Oh, yeah, and it was dinner time.  I decided to lower the bar and just be content that some pictures were captured, no matter how mediocre they might be.

Big Girl Clothes

Contessa had to get out of her comfy newborn nightgown to get dressed up in big girl clothes so she could look like her big sister in our annual daffodil pictures.  Other than a dress on Easter, these were the first real clothes she has worn over the past 4 weeks.  I think she was relieved to get snuggled back into a nightgown when we came home.

4 Weeks Old

Contessa is now four weeks old.  Where does the time go?  I figured I better get three week old pictures posted before I got too behind.
