Wow, this is still around! I don't know what made me check in here after a gap of 3+ years but I love that this thread is still here. Alexa turned SEVEN May 26 and is doing great! She's on the swim team at our pool club and is a cycling fiend. She's also rather bossy to Elise and Corinne who turned five December 4 but they give it right back to her. Alexa is going into second grade in September and Elise and Corinne are heading into kindergarten and they are PSYCHED as am I! Come September I'll have a pretty quiet house except for Dean who turned a year on June 2 and is totally loved and pampered by his three older sisters. He started walking at 10 1/2 months and toddles everwhere now. He's also extremely vocal (he doesn't really say words as much as just being LOUD!) probably because that's the only way he can be heard as the youngest of four kids!
Here's a recent photo of the family taken at Dean's first birthday. Alexa is on the left in the polka dotted swimsuit, Corinne is in the black, orange and pink swimsuit and Elise is wearing the grey long sleeved shirt (she got cold at Dean's pool party, go figure!). Hubby and I are behind the birthday boy.
I still keep in touch with a couple of members here via Facebook but it's nice to see how everyone else is doing.
Ferris, I so wanted to name our little man Griffin Dean or Dean Griffin but apparently there's some basketball player with that same name so hubby wouldn't go for it. I'm happy that you got your Griffin!
