Brothers

P1010262

I (we) have two of the sweetest boys ever. Matthew has adored his brother since the day Alex was born (and really, he was so thrilled to have a sibling while I was pregnant – there was never really a time that Matthew wasn’t interested.) As Alex has grown, the boys have formed a great …

I’ve come to the realization that I’m an awful blogger. I know I should write, but getting into the habit of it is very difficult. Life lately has been pretty good. Matthew is doing wonderful, and he’s getting so excited to meet his little brother. He often says to me “I can’t wait until we …

Our first look at Baby Crux

9/18/12

Tuesday we got our first glimpse of Baby Crux! It was so exciting! Since this is a high risk pregnancy, my doctor ordered a very early ultrasound. So, Edison and I headed in for the appointment. After peeing in a cup (seriously, can’t they think of a better option? Peeing in a cup is really …
