1) Isabella is incredibly sensitive. You have to be very careful when talking about things in front of her. We have to watch our choice of words when speaking to her. She is so concerned for everyone around her, constantly thinking about someone else. She has a heart of gold.
2) Abigail is Independent. She likes her space, and don't you dare come into it. There is only one exception to this that we have discovered and that is my Grandpa. My Dad's dad. Abigail does not leave him alone. She will NOT leave his side. I am not sure what the attraction is to him but she is enthralled and completely satisfied to follow him around all day. She just jabs the whole time too. She calls him "Gan-pa"
3) Isabella loves the outdoors. Riding her bike, scooter, playing in the sprinkler, drawing on the driveway with chalk, as long as it is outside she is happy. She also loves to set up lemonade stands. Which we only let her do once a year and that is at our community garage sale in April, and yes she is already planning how much to charge.
4) Abigail makes up her own names for things and although she knows the real names she still uses the ones she made up. For instance: Abby calls money "Bookie" When Abby wants you to rock her in her chair in her room she says "mom will you wee wock me" She is such a silly girl.

We got the cutest most lovable puppy in the whole world, he is so sweet. He has had about 10 names including but not limited to...Billy Ray Cyrus, Rico, puppy, Juno, Scooter, Gizmo, Dribbles. I am sure I am forgetting a few. The girls are in love with him. Abigail is actually chasing him around right now...that's right SHE is chasing him. We have yet have a name stick. My vote is Juno, Nicks vote is Scooter, Isabella's vote is Billy Ray Cyrus, and Abby...well Abby doesn't care. Nick is away on business and when he returns we will decide as a family what to name him. Nick has not met our little handsome guy yet. I know he will fall in love with him. We got him on Sunday.
Potty training is going well. He has had a few accidents which I expect. For the most part he is really good about going outside, of course I am taking him out every hour. He slept in his little kennel last night and did not have an accident. From 11pm to 7am. I would say that is pretty darn good.
Welcome to our family little guy.

To the Man who has made my life complete. I adore you more every day, and love you more with every breath I take. I am so grateful to have spent another year by your side, another year in your arms. Your compassion and love for me is truly one to admire. Your strength and wisdom are set far apart from others.
You leave me breathless at times when I see you with the girls, with just the simplest of things. The way you read to them, snuggle them, play games with them. When they fight for your attention your solution is to open yourself up until they each find a comfortable resting place on your body, cause you know that's all they really want...is to be close to you. Your compassion and love for them is insurmountable. Here is to 50 more Birthday's just like this one. I love knowing I will spend the rest of my life with you.
Happy Birthday baby. I love you more than all the stars in the sky!
