Justin had a work convention in New Orleans last week.  I tagged on for the last 3 days for a mini 5 year wedding anniversary vacation.  We had a great time.  We ate alot of food.  We missed the kids terribly, but it was good for us.  Much thanks to the Grandparents for watching the kids.

3 years old

Gabe turned 3 years old this past Sunday.  He's acting so old lately. 
At 3 years old, Gabe can:
Walk!  (if motivated)
speak in 4 word sentences
eat everything (even some fruit lately)
have books memorized
sing songs
drink from a tip cup (we're getting there)
sit on his little potty
scribble with a crayon
blow bubbles
and soooo much more!

Now that Gabe is 3, he has graduated from the First Steps Program.  This means that all his therapy (Occupational, Speech, Physical, and Developmental) will no longer be at our home.  He will now receive all this therapy through the Kenton County school system, Redwood's afterschool program, or maybe Children's Hospital later down the line.  I will greatly miss the 4 therapists and caseworker who have worked with us during these early years.  Gabe and I made them flower pots as a thank you.

Happy Anniversary

Justin and I got married 5 years ago today. 
 I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love and honor you all the days of my life
I'd do it all over again in a heart beat.
