I am considering going "private" and I would love feedback? Good idea, not necessary, etc? What do you think? There is so much left to our journey (Jude and I are planning a trip to Ethiopia next summer, future children- shhhh...don't tell Tommy) and I would LOVE it if every person (with the exception of one crazy commenter) who ever glanced at my blog would ask to be invited to view it, but I'm not sure if I'm 100% comfortable with it being so open to ANYONE...What do you think?

Favorite morning moment:

Nana: Walks into the living room and says "How's everyone doing this morning?"
Judah: Looks up at her and says "Good!"

Judah's 1st Birthday Cookie Monster Party Pics!

Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate Judah's big day! It meant so much to us to have you there.

Happy Birthday!

Our Jude turned one today! I can't believe it. It's been a crazy crazy last few days- I'll post pictures of our little dude and his celebratory events very soon.

Judah's signature dance move...

Thank you...

I've been lucky enough to stay home with Jude for the past 4 1/2 months. So, this past week was hard for me. It was hard for little Jude too. Monday, he was "subdued" (not Judah like AT ALL) and asked for his "mama" (the moments when his stellar language skills seem to make it all the more painful to leave, he ASKS for me!) and by Wednesday he was sick (cough, cold, throwing up even). But, he is just so lucky to have his Nana. His Nana (he named her!) even quit her job so that she could care for Jude while his mommy was gone during the day. We don't know what we would have done without her. It was so nice to know that he was being SO well taken care of. This morning when she left for the weekend, he gave his super-sad-bottom-lip-puffed-out face, reserved for truly sad scenarios. He loves his Nana!
