Some Day

11 Jun

On this day, I knew we were in trouble.

 This is Karsten, he was supposed to be born the same day Bristol was supposed to be born. He wanted his own birthday, though, and is 6 days older than she is. This is the day they met. May 16, 2009. He was 11 days old and Bristol was 5 days old…It was Love At First Sight! They really are cute, aren’t they?!

We may have thought of this before, but that day it hit home…Some day, Bristol will grow up. Some day, she will have a boyfriend. Some day, she will be a TEENAGER. Some day, she will get married-have kids…Some day.

Well, Some Day has come too soon!  Sunday (June 6), at Church, Bristol and little Amos (who is 3 months older than Bristol) were sitting on my lap and she layed one on him. It was cute, but a little scary…This is TOO SOON! I kept thinking to myself. Little did I know, our little sweetheart hadn’t had enough! Today (June 11, less than a week later), our friends stopped by with their son Ben, who is 4 days older than Bristol. She practically chased him down for a kiss! Now, she totally had the advantage, since Ben doesn’t walk. The poor kid didn’t know what hit him! Oh Lord Help Us! What have we gotten ourselves into?


Merry Christmas (yes, I know I am late!)

27 Jan


Christmas Morning. Kaeden was very excited to rip into all the presents that “santa” brought him. Bristol was more interested in the paper he was tearing off the presents!

I will be sure to post more soon. So much to write, but so little time 🙂

So, until then: Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Groundhog Day and probably Happy Valentines day!

6 weeks!

22 Jun

Today Bristol will be 6 weeks old! Right about now (2pm), 6 weeks ago, I was on my way from my doctor’s office to the hospital. Yesterday, Father’s day, Bristol was cracking up at Neil. This was no gas induced smile, she was totally cracking up. Long enough for me to get my camera and take a picture!




Four Weeks!

8 Jun

Bristol is 4 weeks old today! Amazing, time sure flies! She is eating more, less often (which I like!) and staying awake more during the day (luckily, not staying awake at night!) She is growing so fast, almost out of all of her size newborn clothes already! Soon, too soon, I will be back at work and she will be with Neil all day…I am going to have to do a practice run and leave him alone with her for a couple of hours, we’ll see how that goes.

Thursday, she will be one month old. We are taking her and Kaeden to get their pictures taken. A dear friend from high school, Kayla Bosma,  is a fantastic photographer with a studio in Monroe. We are so excited, I know that the pictures will be fantastic!

I don’t have any recent pictures right now, the camera is in the car, but I will post some soon!

Here She Is!!

Why God made little Girls

30 Dec

God made the world with towering trees,
Majestic mountains and restless seas.
Then paused and said , “It needs one more thing…
Someone to laugh and dance and sing.
To walk in the wood and gather flowers…
To commune with nature in quiet hours.”

So God made little girls
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls,
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles,
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
And when He’d completed the task He’d begun.
He was pleased and proud of the job He’d done.
For the world, when seen through little girl’s eyes
Greatly resembled Paradise.

Coming May 2009
