One and one half years

I can't believe that it was 1 1/2 years ago that we became a family of three. On one hand it feels like Maisie has been with us forever then I have to ask myself, where has the time gone and has it really been 18 months already? Her love for us and our love for her just grows everyday and I couldn't imagine our lives without her.

IMG_2131b1 Speaking of growing, can you believe how much Maisie and all her friends in our Library play group have grown? The picture of (L to R) Katie, Alexander, Tommy, Parker & Maisie sitting on the steps was taken this past Monday and the picture of (L to R) Alexander, Ava, Maisie, Tommy & Katie with the Firemen, was taken one year ago today on our 6-month Family Day Anniversary.11 
It was January 2007 when Maisie and I started attending Library story time and it was there where we met all our friends who are now in our Monday Library play group. Back then only a few of the children were toddling around while others still had weeks or months before they
were to take their first steps. It was each child on their own with a toy or book as they were too young to really interact and play together. Now there is no toddling around as it's run, run, run with lots of playing and interacting together.

In seventeen months, first attending Library story time and then forming a play group, very few weeks have passed where we haven't gotten together for our Monday play date. Over that time our group has changed somewhat. We lost one Mom & child when Erika & Kellan moved to Colorado back in July of last year but now this year has been the year of additions. Back in March, Parker's Mom gave birth to a handsome little boy, Mason. In May, two sweet little girls were born making Katie a big sister to Anne Marie and a week later Ava became a big sister to Sophie. Seven Moms, seven toddlers, three infants with one more on the way, Monday play group will continue to be a blast for Moms and children alike.

Happy 18 months a family to all our travel mates and friends who also share our special day.
