Are you ready for some baseball? We are!

This Spring season we actually have not one, but two ball players in the house!  Our league added a K-Ball division for 3/4 year olds and Emery is following right in Chase's footsteps!  Both kids are playing on the Astros which made it super easy for family to get shirts (heck, we even gave them the same number, so we could have one shirt cover both kids).  Jeff is assistant coaching Chase's team again and this year we were blessed enough to get Chase's former school coach, Coach Blake, to head coach.  It's going to be a great season!  While they don't keep score in K-Ball, they were so cute (I mean, really, really cute) and Chase's team won 16-6.  I think we are off to a fantastic start! Man how time has flown!

****I am grateful for
1) a wonderful day full of great memories
2) baseball, love it
3) great coaches (for both of our Astros)
4) a husband/daddy that is so hands-on
5) no rain!

The big 0-9!

9 years ago today the world got a little sweeter and our hearts got a lot fuller as we welcomed our first miracle into the world. He is more than we could have hoped for or ever dreamed he would be. An amazing son, an awesome big brother, and overall just a sweet, loving kid. He makes people laugh, brightens up the room just by being in it, and has one of the biggest hearts that I've ever known. He makes me want to be a better person and try harder than I ever thought I could. I couldn't imagine life without him and am so very thankful that I get to be his Mommy. Happy 9th birthday Chase, you are our dream come true!!!! 

****I am grateful for
1) 9 wonderful, amazing, how did they go that fast?? years!
2) the chance to be his mommy
3) the miracles of science and IVF
4) that smile
5) all the years to come
