The First 6 Months

Share the Adventure:

It has been a crazy, wonderful, amazing, mind-blowing first six months. It’s hard to believe we’ve already had this little one in our lives for over half of a year. There have been so many challenges, so much to learn and figure out, so much work on little sleep, but it has been so rewarding,…

Visitors

Share the Adventure:

Since baby girl’s birth we’ve been blessed with visits from many loved ones. Family and friends have come to visit and meet baby K, and get lots of baby cuddles. It’s nice to have visitors to provide encouragement, and help around the house. It’s been a steep learning curve, exhausting and frustrating at times, but…

She is Here!!!

Share the Adventure:

Baby girl arrived near the end of July. It was a crazy long labor but all ended well. The short version of the story is that baby’s head was asynclitic, meaning it was tilted toward her shoulder, which made dilation extremely slow and uneven, and caused the pushing stage to also take a very long…

Royal Gorge Bridge & Park is located in Canon City, Colorado. We took our trailer out several weekends ago for a delayed anniversary getaway. We’d wanted to go here for awhile, but due to a wildfire in 2013 that burned down most of the structures we had to wait until it was open and operational…

Buena Vista – Hiking & First Maternity Photo Shoot

Share the Adventure:

We’d been hankering to get back to Buena Vista for some time. Basically we were waiting until the weather was good enough to take the trailer through the mountains to get out there. A glorious weekend presented itself and we were off. It’s interesting to think about the fact that the last time I was…

It’s a Girl!

Share the Adventure:

We’ve since found out that our little one is going to be a GIRL! Here is our announcement: It’s funny because several people including my sister, best friend, and aunt had previously said they thought baby would be a girl. We didn’t know and talking about it multiple times we really had no preference. Some…
