The number twenty five has become a very symbolic number for me. On April 1st, 2008 I turned 25. On April 25th, 2008 my dad passed away. On February 25th, 2012 two of my closet girlfriends had babies.

On my drive over to the hospital on February 26th to meet baby Rory I felt a little overwhelmed with grief and joy at the same time. I told one of my friends that I kept wondering why February 25th sounded like such a familiar date. I can't recall what happened on February 25th in the years past, but I now automatically connect the 25th of any month to my dad. I have no doubt that I will always remember the Birthday of baby Rory and baby Isaac! It's exciting to have such a joyous life event on a day that can sometimes represent sadness for me. I am so blessed to have two new sweet little baby's in my life!

Here's a few sweet pictures of baby Rory, mom (Kay), and dad (Matt). I can't believe my best friend that I have known my WHOLE life has a baby! I am very happy for the two of them!

Aunt Karen is very excited about sharing more pictures of baby Rory and baby Isaac in the future!
