Happy New Year!!!

So as I sit here with 15 minutes left in 2011 I am reflecting on this past year and looking forward to 2012. 2011 was a great year for Rich, Jolie, Avery and myself. We have been truly blessed this year. We have some amazing new adventures in store for us in 2012 and we look forward to all of them with happy hearts. I will do a best of 2011 post soon but I couldn't let a new year dawn without a quick post.

Happy 2012, may this year bring you all the joy possible!!!

Everything Bridial

Today was such a fun day. In the mIddle of what is a crazy time of year for me at work I was able to spare a few minutes to go with one of my dearest friends to look at wedding dresses. I think the best part was that it was all of my best college friends there together again, like old times. I promise to post the picture once Meagan sends it but I just wanted to post about how amazing my friends are. Sarah, Lora, Meagan and I have truly been the best of friends for what seems like an eternity but it just makes me so thrilled that we have such a strong friendship that we have been friends for nearly 14 years and we just pick up and start right were we left off no matter how long the in between time. I can't imagine life without my girls so this is just another incredible memory with the four of us.

Meagan, congratulations of your recent engagement and I wish you and Todd a lifetime of happiness together!!! You are an amazing person and you truly deserve the very best life has to offer. I am so excited I was able to be a part of this special time in your life.

Merry Christmas, a little late!

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, I know I am a little late but there is a great reason. I took this weekend and enjoyed family and good friends. I did't worry about email, this blog, work, or even my phone. I just flat spent time with my family, I hope you all did the same. I will post Christmas pictures and Avery's party later this week but for now I am watching movies with Jolie and snuggling and enjoying her because she is leaving for vacation tomorrow with my parents for the cold weather of NC. So I am off to snuggle and enjoy her before she leaves. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and did like we did and enjoyed family and gave thanks for the true meaning of Christmas!

Merry Christmas and God Bless!!!

Avery at One

It is just so hard to believe but on Saturday, Avery Marie Perillo turned one! All I can say is WOW, this year has flown by and been full of so many new adventures for us as a family of four, I will say I wouldn't trade the craziness for anything in the world, I love my life and my family more than words could ever express. As usual I am struggling just to keep my head above water so I am on the iPad so I am writing this post with no pictures but I promise to add some later.

It is so hard for me to believe that it has already been a year since you came into our family but at the same time I just can't imagine our family without you. You are a funny little girl, you have some of the funniest facial expressions and your little personality shines right through them. Much like your Mommy you wear your emotions on your sleeve. You smile and laugh when you are happy but oh boy when you are mad you let everyone know! You are a great eater and sleeper. You love to feed yourself but we can't put a plate of food in front of you because you will try to shove it all in your mouth at once and choke yourself, we give you one or two bites at a time and that's it. You adore your big sister and she adores you, Jolie makes you laugh a lot! You and Jolie love playing together and that just makes my Mommy heart sore. You love board books and blocks, you stick everything and anything in your mouth if your paci isn't in your mouth. We let you have your paci more than we should because I am always afraid I will miss you getting into something and you will choke. You have become a great sleeper in the last several months, you still get a bottle before bed but then I put you in your crib with classical music on and you go right to bed, you normally sleep from about 8pm to 6:30am, occasionally you wake up in the night but not often. You are a big girl, tall and all, you wear size 24 month clothes with a few 18 months mixed in, you wear a size 4 diaper, and a size 4.5W shoe. Your Daddy and I love you to pieces and feel so blessed to be your parents!!!! We love you baby girl. Happy First Birthday!

Totally overdue

I am totally overdue for about 15 different post but all the activities of the holidays have gotten in the way of my blogging. I have been working harder than ever, we have had family portraits, parties to go to, we have bought and wrapped gifts. It has just been busy. Plus we have two children that need us a lot. I promise to do some big catch up post soon but until then we hope you are enjoying the season!
