Joining us soon . . .

BABY

Mike keeps reminding me we are not having a baby in order to play dress up but I can't help being a little thrilled about all the cute things to buy.  Beyond that, I grew up with all sisters and I can't wait to raise a little girl with all their drama and charm.  Mike is coming to terms with letting go of his dream of raising a secret ninja spy boy, but who says a girl can't have a little ninja in her as well? He will be such a fabulous dad, I can't wait to see him with his daughter.    
 
Looks like we will be adding some pink to the fabulous paint job Mike surprised me with while I was at Education Week in Utah.
