Without You I was Broken…


But I’d rather be brokedown with you by my side. –Jack Johnson

At 5:05pm on August 6th, 2004, our little baby Peanut made her quiet entrance into the world and made my life complete.  After 14 hours in the NICU, I finally got to meet my Makenna Leigh.  She was small and cute and wide-eyed, even within the first days after she was born.

Our small little baby is growing into a big, beautiful little person.

While she was once so quiet by nature, she sure tells us what she’s thinking.  She has a great sense of humor.  She’s brave and strong.  Her will is frighteningly fierce.  And we love everything about her.  (Well, except maybe her temper).

Happy 4th Birthday, Bugs!
