My darling Seth turned 4 last week. It has been a crazy time and I meant to get this written last week, but I couldn't go any longer without mentioning my Seth.

My second son, Seth, was born a short 13 months after our first child. He surprised us all!!! But, he has been a wonderful surprise in our life. And after a scary first 24 hours in the NICU, has been a very healthy active boy. Life would certainly not be as fun, loud, or full without him.

Seth lives life fully. He only stops when he literally runs out of energy. He does everything at full speed; he doesn't walk he runs; he would rather be moving than sitting still. His laugh is infectious, and he can make you laugh until you cry. He might run over you in his quest to do something, but he will also be the first to offer you a hug or kiss to feel better.

Seth is always the first to notice people's feelings and the most sensitive to how other people are feeling. And while he is usually the loudest thing in the room, he is very sensitive to being talked to in even a slightly raised voice.

It has been a fast 4 years, in every possible way and I can't wait to see what the rest of his life holds. He is a tremendous blessing in my life and I can not imagine my life without my full of life little boy.


Riley did not want to go to bed tonight. She cried for quite awhile after we did our normal nighttime routine. Once she was quiet I went to check on her and this is what I found.........

And in case you don't see what's funny about this site, here is a close-up.......

Kids really can sleep anywhere!!!

We are home today from an incredible week in Sarasota, FL. We had a great time visiting family, relaxing, and playing at the beach. It was wonderful to have a week of no deadlines, timetables, commitments, household chores, or any requirements except having fun and relaxing as a family.

Here are a few pictures from our week in Sarasota, I might post a few more later when I get the rest downloaded from my camera.

My favorite pictures from the whole week.
