Abby turns two!

Well, my girl is two years old! What a joy my life has been since March 7th, 2013. I thank God for my little girl every day. She is full of sass and attitude, but is also sweet and loving. Her snuggles, hugs, and kisses make my day. I love...

Merry Christmas!

The Millers had a wonderful Christmas, with Abby in particular enjoying herself 🙂 After enjoying the children’s version of midnight mass (4:00), we had a nice dinner out before settling in for a relaxing evening.

A baby-free vacation!

Matt and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! It was just the two of us and we had an amazing time although we missed our girl like crazy! Did she miss us? NO! She was having a blast with Nana (my mom), who spoiled...

Happy Birthday!

Abby is officially one year old! She is now considered to be a toddler, although, let’s be honest, I will consider her my BABY until the day I die. Unfortunately, prior to her party, Abby had been sick with a bladder infection for the past few weeks and was not...
