All Smiles

Happy Birthday Dan! Since meeting Dan, I've had to share my birthday celebrations with him since mine was 2 days ago. Normally this wouldn't be that big of a deal except that I love birthdays and Dan is a little "ho-hum" about them. He usually rains on my parade a little. This year, with our new little addition to the family, everything is different - even birthdays. I always loved a little birthday flare to make my day special, but after having Rebecca you realize quickly that everything in your life becomes secondary to everything in theirs. That's the order of things I guess and I wouldn't change it for the world!

Here are a few pictures to keep you updated. Rebecca is smiling all the time now and almost on command. Just make sure she is in a good mood, usually after eating, and give her a big smile and she will smile right back!

This past weekend we drove up to Orange City to visit my parents. This was Rebecca's first road trip and she did really well in the car. Both on the way there and on the way back she slept soundly. It messed up her sleep schedule a little, but she got back on track soon enough. We had a great visit and Grandpa loved sitting and reading to his two youngest grandkids.

Thanks to two of my fellow ISU grads - Jen and Beth, Rebecca is decked out in her ISU gear ready to cheer on the Cyclones to another win. She makes a pretty cute fan!
