Luke was due on July 4th; with the gestational diabetes diagnosis, my doctor did not want me going past my due date, but we compromised on an induction date of July 6.

March 10, 2015 From Lynn; You may tell yourself, "I think I am ready for kids. It isn't that hard, right?" Are you? Really? Here was my night, not too far off from an average night.

March 15, 2013 We’ve had a busy couple of weeks.  (Who am I kidding…we are always busy!) The first weekend of the month we went up to Grass Valley to visit with Lynn’s side of the family and celebrate his Grandma’s 93rd Birthday (WOW! I don’t think she’d mind me sharing the number, after all it is quite remarkable and very celebration-worthy...
March 2, 2013 I finally upgraded to a smart phone about 2 months ago. I’m still getting used to the added cost, BUT it is so nice to have! My main love is the camera/video recorder on the phone … I always have a camera on me, without having to remember our small point & shoot.  So when she does something funny, cute or adorable, like...
February 28, 2013 Instead of trying to play catch-up I'm just going to start writing (hopefully) as if I've always been writing, hopefully on a weekly basis. So, without further ado: Last week on my drive home I noticed the fence around the "coming soon" park around the corner from our house was down and there were TONS of people playing at the...
January 27, 2013 Now that I'm caught up on posting pictures I finally got the photobooks for the Grandparents made & ordered this weekend! I asked them to choose which pictures to include (to save me some time) and then I created the books with a little bit of guidance. I like how they turned out!  I've also started working on Abby's 2nd...
November 24, 2012 This will be a short entry. I've been working feverishly to get caught up on the pictures....and as of today I have completed through Abby's 18 month session! That means that I was able to get 3 months of pictures done this month and there is hope that I'll reach my goal is to be caught up by Christmas, so that I can then (...
November 2, 2012Okay I haven't been writing much on the blog because I'm desparately trying to get through all our pictures to get caught up. Unfortunately as of tonight I still have the last day of Disneyland to do and then I can move on. I think once I get Disneyland finished things will move much faster, and then I can start making Abby's 2nd...
