Alayna is 5 months old...

The time continues to escape me (Aidan passes it off to old age = bad memory). I look at both kids each morning and swear that they have grown overnight (Jason thinks I am nuts). But, I look back over the past 5 months and can't imagine life without Alayna. I have gotten a new perspective on what is important in life. I can spend the whole day talking with Alayna and watching her coo, giggle and roll over which is always more entertaining than cleaning the house. I only get snapped back into reality some days when Aidan says, "Mom, do you need me to help you clean the house today?"

We were richly blessed in April of 2003 when God sent us Aidan and now Jason & I feel as though our family is so completed by the wonderful gift of Alayna. She has brought us so much joy, peace, patience, love and gratitude in such a short amount of time. We look forward to our future and seeing how not only our kids grow and mature but through them how our lives grow and mature also.

We thank you for continuing to prayerfully follow and support our family over the past 5 months. This is one great adventure we are pleased to be on!

Here are a few pictures from the past months...(I love to look back and see what a tiny peanut she used to be, obviously she is like the rest of us Cannons we like to eat...)

I have come a long way from 4 pounds 14 oz. (and just think at 6 months we get to start solid foods...)

Happy, happy 5 month day, little princess. You are growing oh, so big. I love to watch you laugh and listen to you giggle. I am so thankful that lc has such a wonderful friend. I am very thankful that Aidan is such a good big brother--to both of you! What a big job he has. I know he can do it very well. God bless you, little one. Nana Cam

Happy 5 months and 1 day Alayna! I don't usually comment, but I have to check on Alayna at lease once a day as I'm checking up on LC. You are such a cute little girl, and I enjoy hearing of your progress. What a lucky girl to have such a protective big brother.
