-Whipple Family 2011 in Review-
In January we said “see you later” to Uncle Dave.
We were surprised, in February, to learn that baby bean was in fact a Girl, and we named her Anamarie May Whipple.
April was more exciting! We started to look for a home to move in to. I had a very pregnant birthday AND Easter.
July is the month my baby sister became a Mrs. Her Wedding was quite the event! I have never been to a more fun wedding! Elijah was the ring bearer, but he did not take his responsibilities seriously… tisk tisk! I also got to spend some time with two very special friends and their daughters in July! I am ecstatic that we each have a girl… ah! Anamarie went on her first family vacation during the month of July also. We drove up to the coast as a family… I still can’t believe I took my newborn camping. It was an experience… July also welcomed another baby Colbert into the world! Elijah has yet another girl cousin in his life…
My baby boy turned three years old in September. He is such a little ham… and I could not love him any more! He had a very “yee-haw” cowboy party… he sure did enjoy himself! We got Eli a bicycle for his birthday… he thinks he is the coolest kid on the block now!
In October Eli got to start school. He finished with speech therapy and I was advised, that because of his delay, he would benefit from a structured learning environment for a few hours each day. During that time he meets with a special speech therapist. It has only been a few months and everyone in Eli’s life has noticed an improvement in his speech. He is a different kid! So much happier! He sure does love going to school too! He has fun with his friends! Both Eli and Ana went Trick-or-Treating this Haloween. Eli dressed as a pirate, Ana dressed as a panda bear. Eli had a BLAST!
