When people have been asking me how much longer I have until my due date, and whether or not I think she might come early, my response was that we are “due” the last week of January, but I have given her permission to come anytime after around noon on Saturday (today).  I REALLY wanted […]

A few weeks ago, Janey texted me and asked if I would be up for taking some belly bump pictures.  She has been doing some experimenting with film, and was looking for a reason to practice.  If you recall, Janey took some amazing maternity pictures of me and Brett when we were expecting Burke, so […]

I feel like I’m doing my daughter an injustice by not documenting her time in the womb as much as I did with her older brothers. She, after all, is a girl, and might care a tad more about this kind of thing as she gets older….and alas, I’ll have to use the age old […]

Dear Blake, 23 months have flown by, but like I say (I think?) every month, you are at such a fun age right now and boy, oh boy, are we enjoying you so very much!! One of the funniest things you do lately is that, after you are dressed – which you have started to […]

Tonight was a first for our family….our first performance for one of our children. Burke’s preschool put on a lovely Christmas show for all of the families. They practiced in class the month of December…memorizing a Bible verse and a few songs. We were asked to practice with them at home too, but every time […]

Dear Blake, Whoa, the last month seems like it flew by. You’re 22 months old now….2 months away from being TWO. Can you believe it? I sure can’t. You are such a big boy now, and you just want to keep doing things that bigger boys do all the time. One transition that you, and […]

As soon as I heard that Jen was having her baby early, and due to some really unexpected circumstances, it was on my heart to make her baby girl a quilt. I went into my craft room to survey what I had to work with, and remembered that I had a few large half square triangles […]

We went to visit family for Thanksgiving this year and had a great time.  Took a few pictures and wanted to post them for us to be able to look back on in the years to come. We got in SUPER late on Tuesday night and so Wednesday was when we got to wake up […]

Dear Blake, You are 21 months old now, which is how old your brother was when you were born. It seems crazy to me that already, that much time has passed. You are such an incredible personality and quite the explorer. You are discovering new things that you can do every day, and you keep […]

Oh my goodness….Burke’s FIRST ever school picture day.  So crazy, thrilling, exciting, funny….all the things.  And nerves for Mommy too, since I was the one TAKING the pics.  I am not sure what possessed me to volunteer myself to take pictures of all the 3 and 4 year olds, but I did it.  And I’m […]
