Happy birthday Henry!

imageI can’t believe my baby boy is two years old today. TWO. Or as he would say when asked how old he is, “BIG!”

He speaks in full sentences, loves Toy Story and Frozen, Thomas and Mickey. He is doing great with potty training, can say the entire alphabet, and can count to eleven. He loves noodles, “mushy crackers” (smashed up graham crackers with milk), green beans and apple cider.  Continue reading

Being able to feel baby moving at the same time that you see it happening on the sonogram is just the weirdest, most amazing experience ever. This time we even got to do the 3D ultrasound so we could see baby’s face – we are already in love!!
