It takes a pretty special friend to travel over 900 miles while 34 weeks pregnant to be at your daughter's first birthday. My best friend Courtney is amazing. She surprised me a few weeks back by e-mailing me her flight itinerary for the weekend of Anna Kate's birthday. It was so great to have her, Isabelle and Bobby here for Anna Kate's special day. I think I am getting spoiled here lately... We visited them in CT in July, they were here this last weekend, and I am going back there next month to see little Emma when she is born! I miss her living in town so much! I will never take for granted those spur of the moment, shopping trips, ice cream runs, game nights, and just hanging out for the sake of hanging out!
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
