1: Our family is Mommy, Daddy, Sammy, and Jack. We are so excited to have another member and we can't wait to meet you!
2: Meet Sammy!! Sammy is our first baby. We rescued him in June 2010. He is crazy, hyper, sweet, funny, and the best dog in the world. Don't steal his blankies and give him lots of love. We know you'll be best friends.
3: Meet Jack! Jack is our second baby. We rescued him in September 2010 when his mommy couldn't keep him. He loves to splash in water and run around the house chasing Sammy. Jack loves babies, but watch out, he might steal your crib.
4: January 1st, 2012 Mommy and Daddy got a wonderful surprise on New Year's Day 2012. 2011 was a very hard year for us, so we were especially thankful for such good news to start our new year! All day Mommy felt sick, so she decided today would be a special day to find out if what she thought was true was actually right! New Year's Day is your grandfather's birthday, so Mommy decided to take a test without telling Daddy and this is what she saw...
5: January 7th, 2012 We called your Lola and your Nana right away to share the good news! Mommy called the doctor for a bunch of tests to make sure everything was going right. They came back perfect! It was official, baby Smith is on the way!!!
