From 3 to 4

We have been a family of 3 for almost seven years. Every year, when we set forth to take a photo for our holiday card, I would think to myself, "Next year, maybe we will add a another little face. Then we will be not 3, but 4."

Here we are in 2005 -- a family of 3.
Here we are in 2006 -- a family of 3.

Here we are in 2007 -- a family of 3.
Here we are in 2009 -- a family of 3.

When Mr. Bloom & I moved in to our house we had been married almost two years. It was just the 2 of us but I asked Mr. Bloom to install 4 towel racks on this bathroom wall. I wanted enough room for everyone to have their own towel rack.

Four chairs around our kitchen table... I feel like even our house has been waiting for this baby.

Less than 6 weeks to go...
