Making it blog official...

Our family is growing.

Charlie is going to be a big brother.

And the baby is HEALTHY!

We are 19 weeks along now - due July 9th. We went to the Perinatal Center this morning for our big sonogram/anatomy scan and they found a complete diaphragm and all organs where they should be! They did see 2 choroid plexus cysts, but they tend to be completely meaningless and should go away within the next couple of weeks. They saw one on Charlie too around this point in my pregnancy with him and nothing came of it. Today might be the first sigh of relief we have had since our positive pregnancy test nearly 4 months ago. Life is good...

A Birthday Party Fit for a Superhero...

Some how three whole years have passed since our little miracle man came into our lives! While on one hand I cant believe it has been three years, on the other hand, it seems like just yesterday. Strange how time works like that!

As per Charlie's request, we had a superhero themed birthday party yesterday to commemorate the occasion and celebrate with family and friends. To say he was excited is an understatement! He could barely contain himself as he waited for every one to arrive and was nonstop energy the entire afternoon!

Between the pizza and cupcakes, pinata and presents - a good time was had by all and Charlie has once again been shown how loved he is. We are very lucky to be surrounded by such loving and caring people.

one very excited birthday boy!

and this was his reaction to being sung to
(I think he was just embarrassed and this was how he coped!)

making a wish!

I've been waiting for this alllll day....

mmmm.... frosting...
(the cupcake is really just the vehicle for the real treat - frosting!)
