Our due date was December 12, so we weren't sure it was real labor when I started having inconsistent contractions around 4:30pm on Saturday. By 8pm, after yelling at Mike for eating his apple too loudly, I was sure it was the real thing. Grandmom and Grandpop came to our house at 11pm to spend the night with Michael, we arrived at the hospital at 11:30pm, and Mary was born at 2:36am. Mike and I were surprised and thrilled when the doctor announced, "It's a girl!" Little brother Michael wasn't allowed to visit in the hospital due to the flu season, but was happy to spend a couple days getting showered with attention from Oma and Opa. So far, he has tried to share her paci and bottle, play catch with her, and fix the bow in her hair. We're tired, but we're enjoying watching Mary and Michael grow each day!

Mike had his 10 year reunion at Villanova. There were allot of babies. The wildcat is no match for Michael!

We're feeding him cereal and veggies now, which he devours. As soon as he sees the spoon coming he opens his mouth like a baby bird, although we end up with as much food on his bib as in his belly! Somehow his sitter, Miss Debbie feeds him with only a little smudge on his bib.
We got a jolly jumper, which he's only spinning around in. He finds the exer-saucer much more fun and stands up in it on his legs that are starting to get a little rolly polly. He is going to be crawling before we know it since he's already squirming forward on his belly after rolling over.
He's also developed a keen interest in Bruiser and Bruiser in him. Hopefully, this brotherhood will continue to bloom as they grow up together! Michael has tested Bruiser with a couple ear pulls - so far, so good.

Mom's friend Jessie did my first photo shoot (Casey Connell photography).
Pretty cute if I say so myself!
Looking fashionable at Uncle Sean's Christmas party.
Finally some friends my own age! We got to meet Mason, Johanna's nephew who is 4 days younger than Michael and Dylan, Christa and Nate's 6 month old son.
