Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.

Ellie Updates

We finally decided to start food for Ellie February 17 (after 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding...the pediatrician didn't give me a choice). Here's how well this didn't go!

After a few days, Elliana decided it was time to try to feed herself. She got the spoon to her mouth at least!

Saturday night we had friends over for dinner. Their little boy, Miles, was born 8 days after Elliana. We always joke that they are boyfriend and girlfriend. Saturday night was their date. The moms think things are going quite well!

Final update for the day. Ellie decided to sit up today...all by herself! It only lasted about 30 seconds, but it's a start. She kept steadying herself every time she started to loose her balance. My little girl is growing up. (Notice mommy in the background nervously waiting to catch her if she falls!)

Our Family

Pete and I met February 1, 2004 and were married June 24, 2006. We moved to Miamisburg until 2007 while I finished nursing school. In April 2008, we bought our first house in Fairfield Township. It was a foreclosure and took a lot of work, but it is beautiful and almost just how we want it! In December 2008 we found out we were expecting our first child. After a very difficult pregnancy and a whole lot of being sick, we welcomed our daughter, Elliana Marie Tozzi on August 14, 2009. And our lives have changed so much! She is our miracle and our blessing.


So I finally decided to join the modern computer age and start a blog...or at least try! We need a way for all of our family and friends to keep up with our family.
