2010

Ok, So here goes my first post for 2010. I had actually started on a post, but never finished it and decided just to scratch that one and start over! I have had a pretty busy 2010 so far. Gregg turned 28 on January 1. I made cake balls for Gregg for his birthday. Those things are so time consuming and aggravating to make! Here is a pic of Gregg holding his Birthday Cake Ball! :)Also, on January 1, Miss Kaidi turned a month old! :) This was her pic taken for her "1 month old" shot! She smiled at me for the first time on New Years Eve. She is wearing NB clothes still. I am starting to put her in a few 0-3 month clothes. I tried to put a size 1 diaper on her and it swallowed her, so we are sticking to NB diapers for a little longer. She wakes up 2 times through the night and is a very pleasant baby. I am amazed at how good she is. She likes to drink around 4 ounces ever 3-4 hours. I call her "porky" because she likes to eat so much! Gregg said that she has grown into her cheeks! :) I would guess that she weighs around 8 lbs now. :)
Our house is coming along mighty fast! I am super nervous and excited at the same time. Here is the latest photo of the progress on our house. Isn't it amazing how fast it has changed?

Well, I am sorry this post is so short, it is late and I need to get to bed. Just wanted you guys to know that I am still here, just busy! 2010 had been going ok so far. It feels like the 2 1/2 years I had with B&K were much shorter than the 6 months they have been gone. It seems it has been forever since I saw them, held them, heard them. I miss them so much. Gregg and I face many challenges everyday with the grief we have over B&K. Some we have faced before, and some are new. We continue to pray for peace and some sense of understanding. Kaidi is such a blessing and she is so loved beyond what she will ever imagine. I tell her everyday how special she is. I know that in time we can talk about Brayden and Kenadi to her. I want her to know how special they were too! :)

I hope that everyone has a wonderful New Year full of many blessings and lots of joy and happiness! :)

I agree with you on the cake balls. I made a TON of them over the holiday's. They are too time consuming for my liking. Despite what everyone said online!

You continue to amaze me each time I read your blog. God bless you and your little bundle of joy. She is just precious.

I pray that 2010 brings you some comfort and understanding. You unwavering faith continues to amaze me. I hope you know what an inspiration you are to so many around the world. I know you inspire me to be a better woman, mother and wife. May God Bless you in the new year ahead.

It has been a while since I left a comment for you...a few months. I just wanted to tell you that I think of you daily. I only know a few people who have lost children in the same way I have and you are one of them. So, we have that tragic event in common...unfortunately.

On a better note though...your Kaidi is just precious. We, too, have a new baby girl who just turned two months old on Jan. 2nd.

Stop by my blog sometime and then email me if you ever get a chance...my address is on my sidebar.

By the way, congratulations on the new house too!

Meredith,
The house is so pretty, can't wait to see it done. Kaidi is so precious and I see B&K in her little face. I pray for you guys, and my heart aches for you. I have been there when my little Bethanie passed away, and I just hurt that another mother and father are having to go through this!! I pray that the Lord comforts you guys!!

I can hardly wait until you show us through the new home and all about what youd o with the rooms. :) I want a new home one day ... A girl can dream, right?

I can't imagine how badly you miss B&K. I'm so so so thankful Kaidi is there with you. She's sooooo pretty. What a priceless treasure.

The cake balls look so yummy!
