After I surprised Chris, we then surprised our parents. We've never had the opportunity to tell them together. So, we invited them over for dinner. Aby was showing them our Disney pictures and at the end of the book was a picture of the above cake. It was funny watching their expressions and it FINALLY dawned on them what it meant. Then there were a lot of high pitched noises!!!! It was quite comical =) This puts Chris' parents with 7 grand kids, and my mom with 8. I am very curious about this little one. Already curious if he/she will have blonde hair like Mac, or brown like Aby. Will there be more blues eyes like Mac or brown like Aby. Or will he/she be completely different. Will she/he be made for school like Aby? Be adventurous like McKinley? I guess we'll have to wait and see. But I do know that this little one will be smothered with love by the bigger sisters.

Chris getting ready to show her off on as he walks her to the NICU
She was such a good car sleeper. (Still is) I love how this picture shows just how small she was. She needed two head supports in her car seat.
Here she is on Mother's Day being dedicated. In the background is one of her good buddies Brodan Elliott.
Here she is at 4 months on her first visit to South Padre Island.
She LOVED sitting out on the balcony and listening to the waves.
My oh My how quickly these 6 years have gone by. Aby has most definitely turned into a beautiful little lady. She is quick to laugh and her laugh is infectious. She is smart and loves school. Friends are very important to her. She wants to make sure that everyone feels important and cared for. She wears her heart on her sleeve and is very sensitive. This girl is definitely a dancer. She has been taking dance since she was 18 mo. She loves getting dolled up in costume and hitting the stage.

We spent quite a bit of time at a giant playground where the girls had a wonderful time going through tubes and climbing nets.
This night was full of wonderful surprises and I was feeling the love!!!
