Happy Birthday Boys!

I can't believe it has been one year since our little Jack came to us. Jack is pretty lucky to share his birthday with such a great dad. I am very grateful for my little family. I can't imagine life without them I love watching Jack learn new "tricks." Yesterday was their birthday. My mom, my sister Carlie and my little niece Halle were all here. It was fun to watch Jack eat cupcakes, sit in his new big boy car seat and to watch Chuck pick out some new clothes at the store. Halle was a great help opening Jack's presents for him. He seemed pretty disinterested until they actually became toys. I am very proud of Chuck and I for surviving this year. Motherhood was if possible even harder than I expected and I was amazed how much I needed Chuck through this experience. I am just beginning to realize what a great thing we have decided to do by having a family. I have so much respect for all the young, poor students and non-students who decide to have a family. No amount of money or life experiences could replace the joy they have brought to my life. I love you Hun and Little Boy.
