Today was Brett’s 34th birthday and it was a day that we’ll never forget. Ma came in last night to spend a few days with us, and was a happy grandma to hang out with Blake this morning. We hung around the house for most of the day, since we needed to stay close, and […]

Pebble Beach 2013 :: Girl’s Weekend Getaway

Posted in: Us- Apr 21, 2013 3 Comments

Back in January, a few of us got together for a Friday night dinner with some friends. We had been hanging out at the Gathering, at MOPS, at the zoo, with our kids, getting to know each other better…or as well as you could with little ones interrupting conversations every few minutes. So, when it […]

A few weeks back, our dear friend and favorite photographer, Emily, came over after church to fill this Mommy’s plea to capture some family images of us before Blake was a giant.  We took our first family pics with Burke when he was 2 weeks old and he was still super tiny.  Well, Blake was […]

Water Baby

At a little over 9 weeks old, we introduced Blake to the shower.  This will probably be the main way that this little guy gets cleaned, as it’s much easier this way on Mommy and Daddy.  He didn’t seem too bothered by the water, and actually liked it! Yay for fresh, clean, cute and cuddly […]

A Baby Quilt for London

There are a few friends that are expecting baby girls in the next few months.  So, when I went to peruse through my fabric stash (I actually have one now) to see what fit the bill, I found these beautiful fabrics from the Kumari Garden collection and couldn’t wait to get started. I’d been wanting […]

Sure, ok, why not?

As I was setting up this afternoon to take Blake’s 9 week picture, Burke woke up and was calling for me.  I called back to him, “Burke, I’ll be there in just a minute”.  When I opened the door, I was shocked to see THIS! I’m actually quite surprised that it has taken him this […]

A Weekend Family Getaway :: Blake’s First Roadtrip!

After Blake was born, one of the first trips that we wanted to plan was to get up and visit with Brett’s family in Northern California.  We took this same trip with Burke when he was 6 weeks old.  Blake was 8 weeks for the same voyage and we had such a great time. It’s […]

Dear Blake,

Dear Blake, Yes, it’s true….you’re two….months!  Wow, that went by quick but we’ve been having so much fun together!  I love being your Mommy and you make our family that much better as our fourth Bollman. I might have mentioned it last month, but you’re a sleeper.  You really enjoy it, and I don’t blame […]

Dear Burke,

Dear Burke, At the beginning of the month, you’d started to learn your numbers and it is so fun to have you count along with us. Your toddler voice is so sweet and we love to hear you say new things. But, by the end, you are counting to ten all on your own. All […]
