2006: A Pictorial Retrospective

This isn't a thorough look back on 2006, but just a brief pictorial timeline of our life last year. Its focus is on the NICU days, which ended on 10-10-06. I'll post more pics later.

PART ONE:
Our Wedding: (This is actually August 2005, but it's where it all began)






Big Fat Positive--Ultrasound Week 10:



Bailey, before she began her serious decline. We miss her a lot. We know she was waiting for Hallie to come home, but her poor little body wasn't strong enough to make it. Rest in peace, dog of my dreams and my waking hours.

I love the pictures! The picture of Hallie's sign made me nearly fall off the couch laughing. How cute!

She is a beautiful girl and you have a beautiful family!
