Updating at Last

Well between getting very busy with our sweet Brayden and having problems with our log in on here it has been almost a year and a half since I have last been able to update. A lot has happened since then. Brayden of course is way past his first time crawling, now he runs, jumps, and throws everything including grapes which he considers to be balls :) He is 2 years old now and is such a joy! He loves to sing and he has a pretty good voice for a 2 year old. He started trying to sing the ABCs today. He also sings almost every time we are in the car, sometimes he just sings notes and other times he sings about what he sees such as cars, trucks, and trees. On September 19, the day Brayden turned 15 months we found out we were expecting baby number two. Since Brayden was going to be a big brother he finally decided he would start walking and once he started he hasn't slowed down.
On May 21st at 4:07 am our little Caitlyn was born. Like with Brayden I had a very fast labor and had to have a natural birth because there was no time for an epidural. I had my first contraction at 3:15 am at which time my water also broke. I woke Glenn up and we rushed to the hospital leaving Brayden to be cared for by Glenn's mom. She was 7 lbs 8 oz and 19 in long.
She is now 2 months old and we are all learning to adjust to having a new member of the family. Brayden loves his little sister but has a hard time sharing mommy. Caitlyn is a wonderful eater and sleeper, which is such a blessing. She sleeps between 7-9 hours at night and loves to eat whenever she can during the day.
Glenn started his own photography business in October and has quickly become very successful. He is working on getting his photography certification which will help him learn more about being a professional photographer but will also set him apart from the crowd. His website it I love that he is so amazing at photography because I have so many wonderful pictures of my darling children.

As for me I am enjoying being the mother of two and the assistant to Glenn's career paths. Behind every great man is a wife trying her best to not let him fall :)
