Lauren and David Established 7 August 2004 Married 31 March 2007

Elliott Kenneth, 3.5 years born 4 July 2007
Elliott was a surprise to Lauren and David since they were not planning on children for a few years. They were in scared and shocked to see that little plus sign on the home pregnancy test they took on November 7th, 2007. But soon that shock turned into excitement and joy as they watched Lauren's belly grow the next 9 months. When they found out they were expecting a boy, David was especially pleased. Elliott Kenneth made his entrance into the world at 6:04am on the 4th of July, weighing only 7lbs 6oz, and 19.5 inches long. They were in love instantly.
Elliott was born with bilateral club foot, and has had multiple castings since he was 6 days old. He recently had a tendonotomy done to lenghten the tendon in his foot that causes his feet to curl inwards. The surgery was an amazing sucess and after some time in braces, he is now walking running like nothing was wrong in the first place!
Elliott enjoys spending his time chasing the cat around the house, watching his TV shows, learning how to spell and write, and playing at the park with his friends!
...And then there were FOUR! Avery Linette March 6th, 2011
Our hearts (and home!) just got alot fuller! Avery Linette was born March 6th at 10:15pm, at 34 weeks and 6 days gestation, measuring in at 5 lbs. 11 oz. and 18 inches long after my water broke at home! This sweet little pea has blown her doctors away at how well she has held herself from the moment she was born, and 2 weeks later the hospital's very first NICU patient was ready to come home!
She now spends her days sleeping, eating, pooping, and just being plain adorable. It's a tough life being a baby.
