I am sooo happy for you both. Watching your little Willow and looking at all the photos brought tears to my eyes. I love the squeeky shoes. Of course, YOU might not love them so much after the novelty wears off!! :) Treasure every moment - but then, I don't have to tell you that, do I?

Hi Mama and Papa ....thank you for sharing all the joy...I keep going back and looking at the pictures, over and over again and every time they bring a smile to my face and a warm feeling to my heart.Willow take good care of your parents and enjoy your adventure.

Mike and Laura,

Willow is absolutely beautiful. The pictures of you with her are great, and really worth the wait. You look like naturals at parenting, and even having fun at it. We know you will treasure every moment. Even when Dad has to work late. Enjoy your trip, it is a once in a lifetime experience
