Hello Boston

The time has come. Our next visit to Boston is here. Julia’s second surgery is tomorrow.

Our little family of five packed up our mini van and spent three days driving to Boston. We are checked in and ready for Julia’s big day.

Today we had her preop appointment to go over the plan for tomorrow. We also met with Julia’s facial plastic surgeon one more time before the surgery. He is the one you’d want if you were in need of anything, and he’s a pretty great doctor if you ask me.

While we were at the hospital we decided to pop in on our favorite department for a quick hello as we’re not scheduled to see them until later next week. We were lucky that they were in between patients and could say hello to us.

We will post updates when we can. Thank you all for keeping Julia in your thoughts and prayers, especially tomorrow. ❤️

Also, thank you to everyone who was able to help us with this trip via our GoFundMe site. Your support means the world to us! xoxo, Tori

Claire is 7

This beautiful, sweet, loving, strong little girl is 7 years old!

You always hear people say that children grow up too fast. You don’t fully understand it until you have your own. Our second baby. The baby that came out ready to take on the world. The baby that was the loudest in the hospital nursery. The baby that we were able to bring home at only two days old. The baby that is no longer a baby anymore (but will always be to me). We love you Claire!

Happy Birthday!

Last month our littlest princess turned ONE! It is hard to believe it has already been a year with Julia in the world. She has brought so many smiles to not only our family, but to everyone she meets.

Julia is crawling, waving, pulling up to a stand, cruising along furniture, and talking (mama, dada, uh oh, hi, more, baba, up). She loves to play with her big sisters & cousins, dance, sing Pat-A-Cake & The Grand Old Duke of York, and much more.

It has been a wonderful year!
