What a Difference a Year Makes...

WOW - I don't even know where to start. This last year definitely got away from me...
Well, first and foremost, I would like to introduce our NEWEST addition: Leland Cash Britt. He is our sweet, beautiful baby boy born November 12th, 2011. I am over the moon thrilled to now be a mommy of 2. :) I waited a long time for him and still just can't believe that God blessed me with another beautiful son.
Jace is now 4 years old and a wonderful big brother. He LOVES "his baby" and just stepped right into his new role without hesitation, like he was born to be a big brother. :) I can't believe how seamless bringing a new baby into our lives has gone. It's amazing to me how everything just "fit" together. I really thought that after having just one for almost four years we would have a difficult time adjusting but it's like Cash has always been here. He was definitely made to be in our family!
We also have a new furbaby - Dixie Belle. She's possibly a boxer/dalmation mix (though we really have no idea) and is a sweetheart. Right now she's almost 6 months old, just got "fixed" on Sunday and thinks she's a lap dog. *At this very moment* she is curled up in my lap, snoring away! She's pretty "energetic" (to say the least) but is such a lover and LOVES the boys. I can't believe the stuff she puts up with from Jace! He is such a big helper when it comes to taking care of her, too...he feeds her, lets her out to go potty, gives her treats and even puts her in cage when he's had enough of her "energy". LOL We're currently looking at some different trainers and trying to decide if we should do puppy school at a local pet shop or do one-on-one training at our home because she NEEDS it. ;)
I guess that's about it, for now. I was ridiculously blessed in 2011 and am looking foward to what 2012 will have in store!!!
