Time is Flying!

Today, April 17th, I am home because of our first SNOW DAY of the school year!  I'm taking this glorious extra time to update the blog that is long overdue.  We've been busy since Christmas, with lots of visitors, preparing for Baby #2 and learning how to parent a 2 year old.  Being a parent is some HARD work and in exactly 1 month we will be parents to 2 children, what were we thinking, hahah...I have a scheduled C-Section for May 17th with the same doctor who delivered Elliot in Denver and so far Baby Boy (yes, that's right another boy) looks hearty and healthy and full of brains!  We couldn't be happier and we are hoping for a stress free delivery and a healthy baby.  Here's what we've been up to at the Straw house.

More kisses for Daddy, Elliot continues to be a love bug
