2009 In Review

Above photo from January where Josh traveled to Colorado for a Chemistry related conference and realized that sledding and skiing can be brutal.

In February, we discovered that we were expecting and Josh celebrated his 26th birthday!

In March, I celebrated my 26th birthday by going seeing Clueless at the Orpheum.

In April, my niece Arabella celebrated her Cinco de Maya birthday with a themed birthday party! On a sad note my grandfather passed away on the same date.

Josh's mom and grandmother were able to visit in April when Josh sang with Memphis Symphony Orchestra Choir

In May, my family and us traveled to Navarre Beach for a relaxing week at the beach. We also found out that we were expecting a girl! In June, we got the nursery ready and Josh's nieces came to visit.

For the 4th of July, Libby, Mandy, and I got together with family at Mandy's beautiful house.

In July, we got a new car in expectation for our growing family, and I had a wonderful work shower where I received so many precious baby gifts!

In August, Mieke and prayer group girls threw me a beautiful shower where we got to play name this candy bar poo in the diaper! Also, the lovely girls at church showered me with gifts, love, amazing food, and friendship.

September: Here is Mandy, Libby, and I after the family and friends shower in Fayetteville! As you can tell I have such a wonderful network of friends and family who made sure that Cadence was wanting for nothing!

On October 14th at 7:43 AM, Cadence Grace Brown, was born via C-section. She weighed 8lbs 7 ounces and was 21 inches long. I have also learned what love at first sight truly is :)

For Thanksgiving, we went to Fayetteville where Cadence was able to meet my side of the family

In December, we had family portraits and traveled to Possum Valley where Cadence met Josh's side of the family.
So I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with family, but I have gotten lazy. Also, I am computer illiterate and as you noticed have given up trying to get all of the pictures in due to complication, but my goal this year is to do this more regularly! So, we will see how diligent I will be for the few people who keep up with this!


  1. Your blog is adorable. Cadence is such a doll. I hope God blesses you abundantly in 2010 as he did in 2009! Love you!

  2. love the new design!!! keep us posted each month and don't forget the flip video.
