Crew always manages to convince us to have a birthday celebration with friends. It’s hard to resist the level of persuasion and excitement he has about birthday parties. I didn’t mind too much this year because his idea was to gather at a new local park. All it required was…

Crew is Five

I know of no one who is as excited about holidays, especially birthdays, than Crew. His 5th birthday fell on a Sunday and he couldn’t wait to get through church and celebrate. He opened a few gifts and showed off the charts excitement for each one. We went to the…

Three year olds are easy to please. Finn woke up to balloons above his crib and that’s about all he needed to feel special. Three things I love about Finn: 1. He is patient. He has to wait for just about everything; food, toys, attention, etc. and as long as…
