So much to be thankful for....

Thanksgiving is a time when we sit back and think about all the blessings we have in our life. Our family has been blessed beyond believe! Four years ago, we became the parents of two wonderful boys who have touched our lives in ways we couldn't have even begun to imagine. We are so thankful for all the joy Jacob and Kyle have brought us. We can't imagine life with out them.
This September we were blessed again with a baby boy, something we had started to question would ever happen. We are so thankful that Steven has come into our lives and we look forward to all the excitement he will bring.
9 years ago, I was blessed with meeting a wonderful person who would become my best friend and my husband. I am so thankful for him. Billy loves me through the good, the bad, and the ugly. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful person to spend my life with. We are so blessed with wonderful families. We are so thankful for all the help, support and love they give us.

This Thanksgiving, my aunt and uncle came out to spend the weekend with us. It was so nice to have them here. There are few things that I miss about living in New Jersey and being close to them is on top of the list. My aunt has always been one of my best friends and I miss her terribly! It was nice to have the boys get to spend time with Bob and Niece too!

2 months already?

How is it that two months has already passed since our family became 5? Steven has been a part of our family for two months already and I find it so hard to believe that this little person belongs to us. The transition to 5 has gone so smoothly that sometimes I look around trying to find that "ball that is about to drop". I have been back to work for about 3 weeks now and as hard as it was to leave him, we have been blessed with a wonderful babysitter! I know he is loved, cuddled, and cared for all day long. Its still a bit difficult to make sure 4 people are ready to get out of the house at a certain time each morning but we seem to manage, somehow! I am thankful that Jacob and Kyle can get themselves ready. They have become such little men lately! 
I know that everyone says how quickly they change but boy, do they change quickly! Steven has started to "talk" and giggle. He smiles when he sees you. He watches his brothers as they play with him. It is so neat to see him change and grow.
To say that Steven has two adoring brothers would be an understatement! Kyle has really seemed to have formed a bond with him. He tends to Steven when he fusses, enjoys just holding him and watching tv, and questions when was the last time Steven ate, if he starts to cry! Jacob loves to make Steven giggle, which we just love to watch!
