Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

Thinking of Baby Hadlee

Brett's brother & his wife had a beautiful baby girl this past Monday. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to be on this earth for long, & now she is in heaven.

My heart has been heavy since I heard the news. Since I have been through a loss similar to this, I have a perspective that most people will never have. I don't mourn for baby Hadlee. She's a special spirit, just like our Kobe, and I find it comforting to know that these babies only needed a short time here on earth...that's how special they are! I'm sad for her parents. Sad that they had to say good-bye so soon. Sad that they have to plan a 'funeral'. Sad that they have to put all their baby stuff away. Sad that the next several months/years will be filled with a lot of heartache. I'm just so sad that they have to experience such a great trial.

Mckay & Amanda are strong. They will get through this. I could tell them that the pain will lessen as times goes by. And that they will eventually be able to think about Hadlee and feel more joy that she is theirs, rather than pain that she is not with them at the moment. I could tell them so much of what I learned through losing a child....but I remember when words couldn't take away any of the pain that I felt. So for now I will say:

"We love you Mckay & Amanda. We love your sweet baby Hadlee. Imagine the joy you will have when this life is over & you know that your baby is waiting for you. She doesn't have to experience the pain & sickness of this life. You are the parents of a perfect, pure angel."

Thanks for all the love and support!
She is a very special spirit and happy we get to be the parents of such a wonderful heavenly child!

That is so sad. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Candace said...

OH my heart aches for them! I'm glad they at least have you to empathize with them. I cannot even imagine...

The Bowlers said...

That is so sad and our thoughts and prayers are with them as well. It will be good to have you guys to help them through this.

Kim, I have been trying to think of the way to word something for our blog. You couldn't have said it better. I am grateful for the family I married into. I look up to you for all that you have gone through and continue to go through. I can't wait to meet Kobe and Hadlee!

Clenece said...

That is so sad! I can't even imagine! We will keep them in our prayers!

Bethany said...

well said Kim. I knew you'd be able to share your thoughts much better than I could.
I am grateful I got to meet Kobe before he returned to heaven. I told Kennedy yesterday she had two special cousins in heaven.
We love you guys and look forward to meeting baby boy Jones soon!

What a coincidence, Scott's cousin just had a baby last night and it passed away the same night. So sad. I could not even imagine what that would feel like.
