Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Happy Birthday, Gage!

I don't know if I can write this post! My baby...my little 7lb 15 1/2oz baby is ONE today! What a year it has been! I can no longer remember what our lives were like without him. He is such a joy to parent. He's a friendly, cuddly, smart, funny, cute boy. In his first year he has spent a total of a month in the hospital, had 5 surgeries, and numerous sticks and pricks and pokes and prods. He has endured it all with a smile for anyone who would look at him. I am so proud of him!

Here are the things going on with Gage now:
*he is talking! He says the following words: Mama, Dada, Night-night, bye-bye, and more.
*signs: milk, more, drink, all done, Daddy, puppy/Katie, bye-bye
*he is trying to pull up- He can do it if we help, but braces are in his near future and will help with that.
*he LOVES PT and is working hard. He is still rolling wherever he wants to go.
*Has 6 teeth- 4 up, 2 down
*sleeps all night some nights, some nights he doesn't
