Tooth-Breaking News!!

Mommy discovered something when she was at grandma’s house picking up Mia.

Baby’s first laugh session: Video {FAVORITE!}

How amazingly wonderful, super sweet!  Our baby has yet another milestone to share with you, at 3 months and 2 days old!  I’ve mentioned that Mia has had her first “laugh”.  Up until last night, it’s only been a sweet little giggle lasting maybe 5 seconds.  I think it was 2 days ago that she laughed a bit longer.  Last night….the best laughing session yet!  I’m so glad that both Dominic and I were there to witness this.

Status Change. I’m Engaged!

What a pretty amazing Thanksgiving holiday.  I’m still basking in all of its glory.  I was given so much more to be thankful for and I cannot wait to face all of life’s surprises and challenges that are in store. Not only did Dominic and I find out a few days before Thanksgiving that we are having a baby GIRL (Mia Rose), but I was able to reveal the news to co-workers (see previous post on our sweet gender reveal) and {Read More}
