Becky gave us this awesome jumper toy for Stella. Stella loves it and is quite entertaining to watch!

Four months ago today, Nick and I experienced the most amazing day of our lives. Stella came in to our world. Stella has taught us that we can love something more than ourselves, more than each other and more than we ever thought was possible.
The day Stella was born, she was so small, so fragile and so tired. She slept and nursed and then slept some more. We cherished any time she would smile in her sleep or open her eyes long enough to catch a glimpse of the outside world.
When she was about 2 months old, she started smiling much more often. By the time she was 3 months old, we could easily make her smile. Now, she wakes up with a grin on her face and laughs as if she's never been happier than to wake up next to us.
Every day, she is learning something new and mastering new skills. I look forward to helping her learn and grow and experience the world. It's the most fun and exciting job I've ever done.

I know this sounds like it should be the basis of a new comic strip, but instead these were our Halloween costumes this year!
We dressed Stella up and took her to a friend's house party. She was (of course) the highlight of the party, not to mention, the first person asleep. She sure knows how to party hard!
