Happy 4th Birthday Maria!


Time sure flies when we're having fun!

(For all of you new mothers out there, this is my "colic baby." Mimi was on anti-reflux meds for 8 months. We had to give her oral meds ever 4 hours. Colic "messes" with the formation of a baby's natural sleep patterns. Maria basically didn't sleep at all for 18 months. Just want to reassure you, not matter how problematic your baby's infancy stage is "this too shall pass." I have JOY in the morning. Maria is a natural housekeeper, my easiest home-school student, a huge comic AND has those delightful ginger red corkscrew curls that turn the heads of everyone we meet!)


  1. Happy Birthday Maria!

    Thanks for the dose of hope that we will make it past this stage with J's colic, reflux, and disturbed sleep!

  2. We look forward to joining this club...former colic baby turned dazzling child! Love this pic!
