Dana and Steve are friends that we've had for many many years. Part of a large group of spectacularly child-free friends that we used to spend many late evenings with, we were especially drawn to each other when we each became pregnant with little boys and birthed them only a month apart. We've since shared almost every life moment with these people. The welcoming of firstborn little ones, home purchases/renovations, the loss of parents, and the ups and downs of becoming parents ourselves.
Now we each have two children... Families of four.
There's a calm that seems to come with the second baby. The realization of 'I can do this.' Steve and Dana welcomed beautiful little Pfeiffer into their home. A place that is always full of delicious food, laughter, and wine. Big brother Parker couldn't stop holding her, kissing her, and poking her butt and laughing hysterically. And Grandma was there to hold and love on the little girl that bears the same perfect smile, and pout, as her. The whole time I was there I felt like I was part of the family... part of the everyday chaos that's so perfectly inviting and warm in the Dojnik household.
I just love when really good people make more people.
Welcome to the world Pfeiffer Mary.
