Spring 2014

Tuesday, April 29th


Thursday, April 17th, our daughter Emily was born. We're excited to welcome our baby girl into the world. Since early January we've been to Cancun with Derek, visited Mike and Stephanie, went to my mom's to celebrate Sarah's graduation from USC with her Masters of Social Work. I went to Steve and Kathryn's for an always fun LAN party, and then we both went to their annual non-LAN party.

In March my mom watched Derek while Sarah and I took a tour of the Koval Distillery in Chicago, and the past few weeks have been filled with visits to the hospital as we kept thinking Sarah was going to have the baby, but as it turned out she was just in early labor for the better part of a month. All of that is done now that Emily is here and everyone is healthy and happy.

Sarah's parents and sister watched Derek while we were in the hospital and both her parents and my mom visited us to meet the baby while we were there. This past weekend my sister Jessica and brother-in-law Steve came up for lunch for their turn to meet Emily before heading to a friends house. Today I'm back at work and looking to find the new normal with two kids in the house.
