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 […]

Dear Mallory, I don’t know how it happened so quickly, but you are ONE month old already.  Well, technically, since you were born on the 29th of the month, and there is only a 29th in February every few years, you’ll skip right to being two months old at the end of March…but still, it […]

Not sure if it is all third kids, but it took us almost 2 and a half weeks to finally get around to giving Mallory her first bath.  She loved it and has also enjoyed every single one since then.  We borrowed this little bath contraption from one of our friends, and it’s perfect for […]

Since Ma and Pa were still in town, I was so lucky to be able to attend the Valentine’s Party celebration at Burke’s school today.  I fed Mallory right before I left, and knew that she would be in the best hands at the house. Burke was so excited to see me when I got there. […]

Dear Blake, Wow!  You are TWO years old!!  I can’t even believe it.  The biggest news for your birthday this year is that you’re a BIG Brother.  You have always been a little brother, but now you are a BIG Brother too!  Your little sister, Mallory, was born just a week and a day ago. […]
