For my wife and mother of my children

Seven years ago the most amazing woman in the world said “I Do,” three years ago she said “She’s here!” and last year she said “Meet your son.”  Today I’m fortunate to celebrate the three happiest moments in my life on the same day.  Its our 7th anniversary and our 3rd mother’s day.  Andrea is the most amazing woman I have even met. She amazes me everyday.  She’s dedicated, loving, accomplished, a snappy dresser, fierce, constantly looking for that extra thing that will make someone’s day just a little better, and above all an amazing mother and wife.

Here’s to seven years and here is to many many more.

Here are just a few select photos over the last seven years.

Milestone: Dominic 6 Months

Our little man has been around for 6 months already! It seems like just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. Its amazing how fast half a year can fly by. Here’s the short list of the feats he has accomplished so far.

Rolling over. You can’t keep the him on his back anymore. Within minutes he will flip and roll around.

Smiles. With the rare exception of hunger and sleepiness, He smiles non-stop.

Talking. Real words, debatable. This little man will totally say “Hi” when he sees you accompanied with the aforementioned smile.

Eating. He started solid food on Sunday. He has mastered oatmeal and will be moving onto vegetables soon. Michaela has taken a great pride in the fact that she can help feed him.

Other accomplishments include, sleeping through the majority of the night IN HIS OWN BEDROOM, carrying on conversations with his big sister on car trips, flirting with all the ladies at the store and gym (He saves the best smiles for Mommy though), and looking great in hats.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone.

Michaela was surprised this morning with her very own pink 4-wheeler. The first thing she did was share it with her cousin then promptly crashed it. She loves it. She can’t wait to try it out in wide open spaces.

ONTO THE EGG HUNT!

Party: Chuck E Cheese

At the last minute we decided to throw a party for Michaela since we will be traveling on her actual birthday.

Since Michaela and Samantha have nearly the same birthday, they have become birthday buddies for the third year running.

Simple and sweet, we went to Chuck E Cheese.

We invited the local cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. The turnout was spectacular!

The kids were well behaved and bursting with excitement to use tokens, collect tickets, ride rides, and eat pizza and cake. It was two hours of bouncing around and honestly I don’t remember much of it. What I do recall is a lot of smiles and excited giggles. Everyone had a blast!

From both of us, thanks to everyone for making the trip on this cold-as-butts day. You made today amazing!
