Happy Birthday Maura

19 May

Eight years ago, I had the baby girl who I didn’t realize would change our lives so dramatically.  It’s been an interesting eight years, and I’ve learned more about life than I ever dreamed.  Luckily, I got to do it with one of them most awesome kid ever, who has the most amazing siblings ever and the best dad in the world.  Sure, Maura’s lucky to have us, but I think we’re luckier to have her in our lives.

Brand new Maura

She's always been a thumbsucker

and has always been a happy girl
