Brothers’ Love by Annemarie

Posted in: Us- May 18, 2015 No Comments

Mallory, you are loved SO well and SO much by your brothers.  Burke wants to include you in almost everything he does. Here he was saying, “Mommy, take a picture of me and Mallory making the letter T.” It’s not hard to understand why…you are sweet, silly, laughable and so much fun to be around. […]

We were told that we should come to preschool pickup early today as the kids had some things that they wanted to give us Moms.  What a fun surprise they had in store for us. The kids gave us pretty flower bouquets, completed a survey, “All About My Mom”, and made handprints too! It was […]

Burke was so excited to celebrate his turning FOUR with his friends at school.  I got up there right after playground time with a special snack for him and his friends to share. They were sitting on the benches outside the classroom waiting to be called back in.  I love these kids and their smiles. […]

Dear Mallory, Three months. A full quarter of a year has already gone by. We are all so enamored and in love with you, our little girl. You’ve grown so much. At your 3 month appointment you were 13 pounds 6 ounces (50th percentile) and 24 inches (75th percentile). You have really come into your […]

Earlier this month, Mallory and I went on a post-boys-bedtime Target and Ventura Mall run with Emily.  We thought about it at the last minute, and as soon as all the boys were tucked in, Brett included, the girls skipped out of the house and headed down the 101.  Mallory slept the whole ride there, […]

Our Friday on Good Friday by Annemarie

It’s the last day of Spring Break (for Burke) and it’s been a pretty rough one at the Bollman household.  It’s so hard for me to go places with all three of the kids.  Since most places that we would go that are outside are not in closed spaces, and Burke and Blake usually run in opposite […]

I fell in love with this Brambleberry Ridge fabric after spotting it on Instagram a few months ago.  When we were in Vegas over Thanksgiving, I picked up a few fat quarters, with some other mixers that matched, and had plans to use it to make Mallory a quilt.  I seriously sat on it what […]

Dear Mallory, It has been the most amazing TWO months with you in our family. You are growing up so quickly!  At your 6 week appointment, you had already gained two pounds since your last one, and weighed in at 10 pounds 8 ounces.  You grew in height too and were measured at 22.5 inches. […]

Mallory is already SIX weeks old….I am not entirely sure how that happened…but it did.  Whoa.  Today was the day of the week that I was to snap her 6 week old photo for my weekly photo project.  I grabbed one of my fabrics and headed out to the backyard with all three kiddos, and […]
