Audrey is sick again, so I'm having to take care of two little girls. She's taking a page right out of her mother's book and has become quite the pobrecita (poor baby for those of you who don't hablo espanol). Audrey has a 102 degree fever, so she has a reason. Shannon on the other hand....

Valentine's Day this year was quite special as three very special women were at my house: my beautiful wife, daughter, and mother. I'm proud to say that they all awoke to flowers. Here's a pic of Audrey showing off her rose. It was a great day as my perfect wife and I actually got to go on a date to Brennan's for a romantic dinner.

Audrey wants to say thank you to everyone that came to her party. She really appreciates all the gifts and most of all your presence. Shannon made a wonderful lunch for everyone and Audrey loved seeing all of her baby friends (Isa, Macy, Ollie, Elie, Henry). The party was a double Audrey birthday celebration as Audrey's great grandmother, Audrey, also had a birthday. One of her other great grandmothers, Shirley Shannon, had a birthday the day before. Thanks to everyone for their help with Audrey this past year. It's been such a blessing to have such a great support from family and friends.

Today is Audrey's first birthday! What a great year it's been (by far the best of our lives). Shannon and I could have never envisioned all the joy that a little girl could bring into our home. People always want to know if I can believe that she's a year old. Well, it's a complicated question to answer. It seems like forever ago that we brought her home from the hospital, but as we look back on pictures it's hard to believe that she's grown up so fast and it's exciting to think of all the great things she'll do in her life. God has blessed us more than we could ever imagine with this precious little girl. To sum this past year up, I'll have to quote Joe Cocker. "She's everything I hoped for." (FYI. Yes Skitarie, I am crying as I write this. You'll never know how I feel until you have children of your own.)
