Ryan’s 9th Birthday

Today Ryan turns 9! Ryan has been counting down the days until his birthday for about 2 months now.

I will write another more detailed article about his party once we have it. In the meantime, we hope you have a wonderful day Ryan, and enjoy turning 9, the last year of single…

Emma’s 10th Birthday

Emma’s 10th Birthday

Today was a big birthday for Emma as she is now into double digits! The big one, zero. Well, truth be told, I might have made a bit more of it than she did.

Similarly, like me, they probably wish they could both slow time down a bit, but are also excited to watch their child grow into…
