  1. thanks for the update! That super helps as I'm packing mine right now!

  2. Love Andrew's 2-month update! It is hard for me to think you are doing all of this on a computer and have your own website! All of your "firsts" were hand-written in your Baby book by me. How the world has changed with technology. But what hasn't changed is the love we have for our children. I love you Jennifer! Your Mom and Andrew's Grandma
