An Update in Pictures

It's been so long since I posted that I'm not even sure where to begin in order to catch up. Besides, there's just so much that has happened, that the task of "catching up" seems overwhelming.

So... I've decided to just post pictures from the past month or so. Some of them (especially ones with writing on them) are my photos from Project 365 that I've been doing this year. So far, I've surprisingly been able to keep up with it. I hope that I'll be able to say that at the end of the year! ;-)

The two coming home outfits I took to the hospital

We really enjoyed having my Grandma & Grandpa Burch come for a visit a few days before Sabrina was born.

Yes, I played Sudoku while I was in labor! ;-)

Waiting to be discharged from the hospital.

Mom & Dad brought me the Polvorones from Mexico that I had been craving. They were to die for!

Matt & Meagan Espenshade's wedding

I'm such a lucky girl to have a husband who doesn't mind helping with middle of the night feedings! It's such a blessing - especially during those first few nights when you have to work as a team to keep the baby awake long enough to get a full feeding!

It was so special to have both sets of grandparents here for Sabrina's dedication.

Joe graduated from Penn View on May 25th. So proud of him!

Ryleigh had so much fun playing with her cousins, Carson & Kristen.

Mama's big helper!

The only way she would sleep those first few nights. I think using the Boppy helped her to feel like someone's arms were around her.

Our first trip to the park as a family of five. Ryleigh learning to ride her tricycle & Grant learning to walk.

Getting ready for my first Sunday on my own (with no extra helpers around).

Strawberry Limade on the porch.

Another wedding... Anthony & Elicia Witmer.

One of Ryleigh's new favorites - Tostadas w/beans, cheese & tomatoes

Jeff's "birthday cake" (he doesn't like cake, so we made him something he does like).

It's a good thing she likes her swing, 'cause she sure spends A LOT of time in it! ;-)

Grant has turned into a toddler almost overnight. He learned to walk the Sabrina was born (yeah, I'm still sad that we missed his first steps!), & has been on the move ever since.

We just finished VBS last week. It was so handy to have so many willing babysitters around! ;-)

Shari, the pictures are so sweet! Makes me want to see my grandbabies again...especially since Sabrina is obviously growing already!

I am so happy we were able to be there for those days...hopefully we will have many more memories soon!

Love ya so much,
