    Isn’t that lovingly referred to as “The Million Dollar Family”? (mom, dad, daughter, son… cats, dog…)
    Congrats! And as we say in our family: A Blessing on Your Head!

    Word of caution: boys think everything is a ball and can be tossed. Including: tv remotes, all plastic toys and the occasional shoe!

    Congrats! I was in your shoes once…;) My daughter was exactly 19 months old when my son was born. Little tip, keep your daughter on her same schedule and put your son on the same one but add feedings and naps in between. That way, at least twice a day you will have free time for yourself while the little ones nap…;) I had a total of 5 hours a day all to myself. It was bliss. Believe me, you’re going to need it. So snatch it up when you got it…:)

I’m sure you’ll surprise everyone with your color choices. Cannot WAIT to see what develops!) How’s your new office downstairs coming along, by the way?
