Bella Day 2013

Thank you all for acknowledging and commenting on our precious baby girls special day. Four years ago this evening we walked out of the UVa NICU on the 7th floor of the Children's Hospital with our fragile, stitched up little princess. Each second we thought that we would break her or something would go wrong after all she had been through. Four years later she is one tough little (although slightly dramatic) cookie. We went out to breakfast at our favorite place early this morning before dropping daddy off at work, then headed to the park and then the book store. We came back home for lunch and quiet time (she is now refusing to nap, which doesn't turn out well once evening hits). After Zach woke up, they danced to their favorite Wii games. Then daddy came home early so we could go to the new La Madeline down the road and then head to the grocery store to prepare for this weekend. We are taking a much needed trip to the beach. I haven't been to the Gulf Coast in years, so I am quite excited. Here are a couple of pictures from our big girls special day. Love to you all!
