It's funny how every year, come January, I am again amazed at how fast the past year came and went. Guess it’s true … the older you get, the quicker time flies by. Nothing extraordinary or life altering has taken place this last year, but our days have been filled little laughs and small milestones. It has been a wonderful year. It truly is the small things in life the make it meaningful.
So the first small thing in our life is Brody. He’s in first grade, and progressing quickly. While being a little talkative (if you didn't catch the sarcasm - that's an understatement), he somehow manages to be in the top of his class. He has a sweet heart, a left brain, and an eagerness to please. I think he's about the best big brother around, well at least to Marley.
Another small thing in our life is a bundle of energy. Dannon, in a few terms, is curious, hands-on, slightly stubborn, mischievous, and, in a nutshell, Chris reincarnated. We love watching his mind work, and seeing him smile as he discovers us watching.
And then there’s Marley, the smallest of all our “things”. Our little princess is literally that. She's made of a little bit of sugar and a lot of spice ... just what Chris ordered. She definitely rules our roost and we are more than willing to let her.
As for the two of us, we’ve been married for 8 years now and are happier than we’ve ever been. Chris has begun his fourth year as an insurance broker. We feel very blessed to have made it through the first three years and are excited for the upcoming one. I enjoy being a stay-at-home mom, and feel very fortunate to be able to do so.
All in all – life is good.
