Rizzo Summer of Fun

We have been so busy having fun as a new young family that our blogging has suffered. Sorry about that, we are going to post some pictures of what we have been up to and of Sophia in all her cuteness. We have to first say a big congratulations to all our friends who are recently basking in the wonderful feeling of referral day. We are so happy that your time has finally come your children are all beautiful...Kathy and Erik...Melissa and Pat.... Alyson and Ford...Christine(forgive me Christine I can't remember your husbands name) and many more who we know through our DTC yahoo group. ....

In the last month we have been to the Mountains of NC with family and then with our friends Cheri and Shane and there beautiful daughter Hope who is only 3 days younger then Sophia. We had a great time with them and seeing the girls together was so wonderful. They were really cute together with minimal fighting....
We have been to EPCOT as a family of 3 for the first time. Many more trips to come in the future. Our travel mates and friends Mark and Gigi's beautiful daughter Stephaine turned one early this month so we made the trip to Jacksonville to see them and celebrate Stephaine's first birthday. We have been enjoying the Olympics, Sophia who has not watched a bit of TV yet actually sat down for 30 minutes and watched the Chinese Women's Gymnastics, with out us making her Hmmmmmmm....We have been trying all summer to get Sophia to wear Sunglasses, shoes, hair bows,hats etc no success until the other day when she wore a bow and sunglasses most of the day. We also took a road trip to see our great friends Lori and Andy in Lakeland (thanks guys you are great host) and while we were there Sophia decided to use the Potty Chair (3 times Woo Hoooo) and has continued to do so here at home. Sophia is doing really great she is a sweet, happy smart wonderful child we feel blessed to have her in our lives sometimes we still look at each other and say "can you believe that she is ours"....

OK now on to the pictures


All right I was putting together a slide show and we have so many pictures we want to share that we are going to do 2 slide shows one today and one in a day or so......thanks for staying tuned

We have a hard time getting the girls to leave the hairbows alone, but I am determined to win that battle :)) Eleanor will leave hers for a little while, but LK pulls it right out. They love when we out sunglasses on them, but won't keep them on either.

We've missed the updates - glad you're back! We need to figure out a time to get together, either here or there. We miss you all and Sophia has changed so much already. She looks wonderful and happy!

love,
S, J, LK and E
