Be prepared...

After moving all the way back east to the smallest of states (still not sure why it's not just part of CT or Mass), we have been feverishly getting the nursery prepared. Thanks to a fantastic baby shower - THANKS MOM, MOM & LINDSEY - we are quite prepared to welcome our little one into the world. First though, some good ol' IKEA construction. Here's Bella helping Alex with the dresser.

And of course, the mother-to-be Laura relaxing in her nice glider chair.

Coming soon, a fully stocked & cleaned nursery, and we'll be ready to roll...

The early days...

A little background, for those that weren't aware. Laura and Alex met in Buffalo in the summer of 2002 in, of all places, a bar called La Luna. Alex tried to impress her with his part-time gig as a DJ every Wednesday night.

Here's us on an icy February day in the Niagara Gorge.

In order to get some sun and check out the "dry heat," we headed off to Chandler, Arizona in the summer of 2003. (Alex and his friend Al made the trip from Buffalo in 35 hours without stopping to sleep - I believe this is a record that still stands.) Anyway, we had a great time exploring the state. Here's us at the Grand Canyon. Heard of it?

After a while soaking in the rays, Alex proposed to Laura in August of 2004, and a wedding date was set. In front of family and friends, we were married on April 17, 2005 at Red Rocks State Park in Sedona, AZ.

And then, you guessed early 2006 we found out there would be a new addition to the family...No, not our cat - though she's pretty funny, so here's a quick picture anyway.
