Hannah Turns Six

Happiest of birthdays to my Hannah. My life has never been the same since you jumped the gun on us 6 years ago.

Hannah Goes to the Beach

My kids are now at this magical age that my friends have hinted at a few times before -- just past all the really rough stay-up-all-night-with-a-sick-kid nights and just before all the stay-up-all-night-freaking-out-about-your-hormonal-preteen nights. Hannah is almost 6, and Ava is about 3 and a half ("My birthday is October 16," she likes to remind us).
