A month of firsts

November has been a big month for Chase. He's reached a lot of exciting milestones this month. He took his first steps

which have since progressed into full blown walking!

He got his first tooth which he hasn't been cooperative enough to let me catch a picture of yet!

He got his first ear infection which resulted in a prescription for his first antibiotic. The amoxicillian he was prescribed resulted in his first allergic reaction which caused a horrible looking red rash all over his poor little body.

He woke up with this rash on his first Thanksgiving which also happened to be the same day as his first birthday! Luckily the rash didn't stop him from enjoying his first birthday cake!

Thankfully Chase is all better and now that we know to stay clear of all penicillin medications he should be fine!

It has been amazing to share this first year of Chase's life with him. He truly is an amazing gift to our family. I had no idea that babies could be so sweet and angelic, and I continue to marvel at his sweet smile and personality. I look forward to seeing what this next year has in store for my little angel.

Just Me And The Boys

With the addition of our second son Dawson to our family last year, I'm completely outnumbered. At times it seem like life is just one big noisy, dirty, wrestling match! But really I couldn't be more happy! Justin and Dawson are so much fun (most of the time!) It's been so fun to watch them grow and develop. In an attempt to share our stories and pictures with those of you who are interested, I'm starting my first blog. My plan is to keep you updated on what's going on in our lives, but I reserve the right to slack off every now and then! After all I do have a 3 year old and a 1 year old!
