Dad and Tory

We had a family reunion last week and these are some pictures I caught of Jared and Tory. Unfortunately, Jared is sick this week. I am hoping and crossing my fingers that the baby and I do not catch it!!!

Ayden took Itty Bitty Soccer this year. Chris was a little bit too young to "officially" join the team, but he mostly played anyway!

More 4th of July

On the 4th of July we took the kids to the Thanksgiving Point Children's Garden. Victoria slept through the entire thing, so I only have pictures of her slumped in her car seat fast asleep! The boys, on the other hand, had a ball. Especially Ayden. He found a friend at the water area, and they spent a lot of time chasing after another boy splashing water at each other. Chris mostly enjoyed sitting on the bench eating fruit snacks, but he and Jared had a fun time playing together as well.

Victoria with her Brothers!

Every morning bright and early the boys run into my bedroom and crowd around Tory's crib crying "Baby! Baby!" They like to sit on the bed with me while I feed her and "help." Ayden does a pretty good job, but Chris would ram the bottle down her throat if I didn't help him hold it! They are constantly crowding around Tory and giving her kisses and hugs. She is much loved by everyone!!!

(some of) Victoria's Birthfamily

Victoria's Birthparents are Jeffery and Jinet. Her sisters are Grid, Diann, Henia, and Henitha. She also has an older brother whom we did not meet. Pictured here is also a cousin, and several aunts. We were lucky to be able to spend so much time getting to know them while we were there.


Victoria Embry joined our family a few weeks ago! She was born on June 16 in Arkansas. We were in Arkansas meeting her birthfamily for about 2 weeks while Ayden and Chris stayed home being watched by my parents. Victoria is a total sweetheart and is such a good baby.
