A Very Special Welcome to HHP’s own Elise Karima!

It is with great pride I introduce our daughter, Elise Karima.
Wow – it is a crazy thing, this parenthood idea.
As I type this, my awesome husband Sami is on his laptop and we work, content and lighthearted as lil Miss Elise sleeps in her hospital bassinet and every now and then we smile as we hear her quiet, lil squeal as she startles herself awake.
Good stuff.
Obv I can’t sit still and had to get some newborn photos and I couldn’t be more pleased with them!  Elise was born on May 4th at 3:47AM, 20 hours post induction.  She weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 21 inches long.  Daddy got to give her her first bottle.  Swoon.
We are so excited to go home tomorrow and start our new lives and introduce Shelby to her new BFF.  lol
We couldn’t be more appreciative of the love and support we’ve received from our family and friends and are super excited to introduce her to all of you.
Thanks again, and as always… Enjoy…

Happy Birthday Miss Reya!

Happy Birthday Miss Reya!

Yesterday we attended Reya’s fourth birthday… princess style!  The Elmo run has finally broken and now we have upgraded to Disney Princess!  hehe  It is always fun to spend an afternoon with family and friends and celebrate.  You would not believe the incredibly vocal “OHHHH”s and “AHHHH”s!  Along with the typical silliness that always ensues.  Thanks for inviting us Reya… you make a beautiful princess!

What do you get when you have a toddler, a lil baby, and a mommy to be? – UPDATED!

Great photo ops!
