Once upon a time....

there were these two people who had been married for 4 years. They really wanted a baby. They wanted a baby so much so that they kept getting animals. Over the 4 years of wedded bliss, they had acquired 2 pug dogs and 3 cats. The woman said to the man, “We really need to have a baby soon before we have a zoo.”

Then one day in December of 1995 ~ on a hockey night in Pittsburgh ~ two cells collided and divided, making a little human “bean”.

On Christmas Eve the woman wrapped up a rattle for the man and gave it to him saying she wanted him to open a present early. Tears of joy followed.

On September 1st, 1996, our beautiful baby girl was born.
