Milo wearing the bear hat and gloves we gave him

My cute nephew Milo turned 4 yesterday. I can't believe he is getting so old! I remember perfectly the day he was born. I was still in high school and I was working on a photo project when I got the call that he was coming! I remember sitting on the ground outside of the delivery room, and when I heard the new baby start crying, I did too. He was the sweetest most adorable thing. (He still is) Milo is the reason I became an aunt and he is so special to me for that. I love being an aunt! He is so smart, well beyond his years. He is so stubborn and passionate (his Italian really shines through) and he is hilarious without trying to be. I sure love you Milo, Happy Birthday!

Sorry Stace!

I am already a bad blogger. Thanks Tiff for the handwritten instructions on how to make my blog a little cuter. We have had a really sad week because our sweet nephew Rex passed away last Tuesday. He has been battling a rare type of brain stem cancer since March. Luckily. we were able to say goodbye to him Monday night because his parents knew he wouldn't last much longer. I can't think of anything worse then a child dying, and it seems so unfair that this has to happen. What a sweet, brave and fun little boy that we are going to miss like crazy. Thank you for all the fun times Rex, we are so lucky to be your aunt and uncle! We know we will see you again. And thanks to the wonderful examples of Steve and Steph (Taylor's sister) You guys are AMAZING and we have no idea how you have done everything this past while. We love you! Please pray for the Stuarts. To hear more about their story and to donate to them if you would like, go to
