Dear World,

WHEW....what a game. There were moments I wanted to cry, I cheered, I yelled and at the end thought I may vomit.....but to no avail MY BOYS PULLED THRU!

I'm still in SHOCK! Seriously, we are going to the Superbowl?!?!? Am I going to wake up and it's all been a dream??

I've never been more proud to call New Orleans Home and to call those Boys in Black & Gold MY TEAM!

Bless You Boys -- All the way in Miami -- It's OUR YEAR!!

Family Picture Time

We've FINALLY updated our family picture - it was only a YEAR overdue!! We now have all 4 family members up on the wall instead of one with only 3 of us.

The kids did GREAT - and of course we spent a small fortune because I couldn't decide on my favs!!

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Girl

It's so hard for me to believe that 1 year has passed since we welcomed Emma into our lives. I still remember everything as if it were yesterday.

The day started off normal, only mom & dad were staying with us anticipating our baby's arrival (we didn't know what we were having at the time.) I had a 2pm doctors appointment and was pretty sure that the C-section would follow - my BP was up, same as with Mikey. Sure enough, we got to the doc, BP was up and over to the hopsital we went, much more prepared this time and much more relaxed about the events soon to come.

Then the time came for the dreaded spinal. How I pleaded with those darn docs to just do an epidural, but to no avail, I got the spinal -- OWWWWWW -- I can still feel it when I close my eyes and think back. 30 minutes later the announcement came - IT's A GIRL -- an then came the tears. I cried cause I was happy and a little sad at the same time. I really had hoped for a boy, a little brother for Mikey.

Now that I see the two of them together I know God knew exactly what he was doing giving us a girl. Emma has brought out Mikey's loving. caring & nuturing side and Mikey has developed Emma's rough & tumble side. What a pair they are!

This year has flown by and I can't believe my baby is 1, I can't wait to see what lies ahead. Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Girl -- Mommy Loves You - more than you will ever know!

We are officially there! Where? The "WHY" stage! I thought we'd have a few more months - but nope, it started today.
J: Mikey, don't touch that!
J: Well, because you aren't supposed to push the buttons on the DVR.
M: oh, don't touch buttons? WHY?
J: Cause, only mommy's & daddy's are allowed to.
M: ohhhhh, only mommy & daddy? WHY?
J: because that's what the rabbit told mommy.
M: ohhhhh, oh-tay
Who knew that would have worked - I think I'll try it again tomorrow, but sooner. I may have to change up the animals or else he'll catch on to me! lol

And on another note - the Diva has also entered another phase of life -- one that includes teeth. Yes, the little lady's 2 bottom teeth cut thru today -- on day different than her brother's did. Isn't that bizarre? Mikey was 6 months, 3 days when his 2 bottoms broke thru & today Emma was 6 months, 2 days. We'll see if she follows in his footsteps for everything else. I know she will for crawling because she's trying real hard to get on those knees these days and can inch herself on her belly to get what she wants. Amazing how fast they grow!
