It is hard to believe that my summer away from work is coming to an end!  We are in for another round of transitions as I head back to the office three days a week.  Honestly, I am amazed at how much progress we have made in less than three months!  My one goal for the summer was to learn how to be a mommy of two.  I realize that the learning never stops, but I feel that the goal has been met in that a very strong foundation has been set.  Even more so, I can hardly contain my excitement over the blooming sister bond between Madelyn and Sydney.  Madelyn just informed me that she likes being a big sister so much that she would like to have yet another little sister.  There were no words for that one (on so many levels...)

Watching Madelyn and Sydney play together touches me to the very core of my soul and fills me with an indescribable joy .  Feeling very thankful for the blessing of being Mama to these two little girls.

My heart is so happy for your family! Do you mind if I ask where you bought that awesome water table?

We got that water table on Amazon. Looks like it isn't available anymore though:

We all knew you would be amazing parents of two. The priceless smiles on the faces of your two angels is proof!

These photos say it all. What a different child Sydney is from just a few short months ago. Way to go Tricia & Troy. ~Connie

So happy for you guys!!!!!! You and Troy are awesome parents.

Sandy just forwarded me the link and then came (almost running) into my office--"you gotta look!" Wow, not only are you guys just amazing parents but the whole family is photogenic, too! So cool to see. Take care and stay well, -Rick
