A dose of sunshine

Setting: A sunny, yet not-so-warm early spring day after many not-so-sunny days.
Mommy: "Edison, why are you sitting in the middle of the driveway? I asked you to get in the car. Everyone is buckled and waiting for you."
Edison, an adorable 3 year old is sitting with his legs stretched out in front of him, leaning back on his hands, which are placed on the ground behind him. His face is toward the sunlight, but he turns it back towards mommy to respond: "I'm sunralizing." And he turns his face back toward the sun.

Whoops- Here's Solomon's birth announcement... the week before he turns 1.

So I guess I'm a terrible mother because I never did get around to posting that our clan had a new member added to its ranks... almost a year ago. Solomon James Hernandez was born April 7, 2015 at 10:30am. He weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces and was 20 3/4 inches long. His was the fastest labor of our 4 and the only that didn't require pitocin to complete. He's so loved by his big out sister and brothers. He has brought so much joy to our family. Solomon, it may have taken me a long time to get your birth mentioned on here, but that's because we've been so busy loving and enjoying you, we haven't had much time to spare!
