Wow, where does the time go! The days are busy, the nights are busy and forget the weekends!
Things are great here, no complaints!  Cailyn continues to amaze us with her development and vocabulary.  She was looking at a book the other day and pointed out using her words a "lemon" and "noodles". 
She is OBSESSED with Santa.  Santa Santa Santa!  We will see if the obsession is quickly squashed when she gets to actually meet him this weekend in person.
We put up a Christmas tree for her and she loves it!  Surprisingly she leaves is alone and stands a foot back to admire it.  Now if only she took that approach with the cat!
Cailyn has discovered colouring..she loves it and is very proud of her drawings!  She really enjoys art time at daycare as well and this is quite often highlighted on her baby bulletin.
Cailyn is a joy and as this holiday time of year comes we are very thankful for our little miracle.  The aches and horrible pains of the past do seem further away this year! Having her in my life has help to mend my heart. 
For those of you still struggling and working on your family dreams: I am with you in thoughts this year as I know how tremendously difficult it is.  It took us 15 years to finally achieve the dream so please please please do not let yourselves give up!!

Having a cookie by the tree! Cookie Monster and Elmo both look like they have had strokes..awe.. all time new favourite hobby!

Stop taking pictures of my messy face!
