Last month was very sad for our family. Max’s health got worse and worse and we had to make the very difficult decision to put him to sleep. He was almost twelve years old and had been in our family since 2004. We have so many wonderful memories with Max and will miss him dearly. Ellis doesn’t quite understand what happened and Meisje also seems lost without her older brother. Here are a few of our favorite photos of Max.

Goodbye Winter!

We had our third snowstorm of the season this morning and I am hoping that it was the last gasp of winter. Because our baby is due around the start of Spring, I’ve never been more ready for warmer days. Only three more weeks until my due date! We’ve spent much of this winter inside, escaping the cold, nesting and playing at home. The baby’s room is all set and we’ve made some “big girl“ changes to Ellis’s room. Her Ikea wardrobe and toy chest hold everything and it’s wonderful that Ellis can pull out and put away her own clothing and toys.
