One Week

A week ago today I was in labor, ready to meet my son for the first time. Who knew that I would be so in love with such a tiny little being and that our lives would dramatically change again for the second time in less than six weeks?! The sadness of the fire has been replaced by something else... Hope!

Our little boy brings such promise for the future. I look at him and think about how amazing it will be to bring him home to our HOME, our dream home. I look at our house plans and can't believe that we are building a home that we could live in most of our lives. Having Kellen makes it easier to plan for the new house, makes it so much less painful to be going to pick out countertops, floors, and cabinetry. It makes it possible to go up to the house and mark out the outline for the new house and see the promise that lies within that home, the new life that we will create. I am so blessed to have this little boy and the promise of tomorrow that he brings to our life.

And a picture... because I think I have one of the cutest babies ever:


  1. Aww. I am so glad your little guy has brought you so much joy. And I agree.. He IS one of the cutest babies EVER.

  2. Soo cute. I am glad he is making this a little easier for you!

  3. I know I'm late to the party but just wanted to say congrats. He's beautiful. What an amazing way to signify the start of rebuilding your home and your lives.

  4. He's adorable. Congratulations, Brooke!
