theannababy is twelve.
seems impossible, but i double checked the dates, and it turns out, the annababy turned twelve this month. her actual birthday fell on mother’s day, and i spent a good amount of time harassing her about it and reminding her that someday when she has kids, she will get combined birthday/mothers day gifts, so the […]

while we were in winston-salem, in january, the boy had his twelfth birthday. it seems like just a couple of minutes ago i was bringing him home from the hospital, but alas, it’s been a dozen years. it’s going by quickly and isaac has always been, shall we say, “spirited”, giving us a run for […]
