Can’t believe how fast her girls are growing! Seems like only yesterday they were announcing that Naleigh was part of their family.

Best wishes to Mother and Dad Kelley! The girls’ little brother will be a thrill, they’ll spoil him,. Then someday in the future you’ll hear “Mom, Daddy! He’s being a pest!”. That’s all part of the thrill for you. Enjoy the love.
