  • Welcome!…

    to “A Step Inside”… our personal family blog, documenting the craziness of our every day life.. Sit back, enjoy, laugh, and share in the road we travel..

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

Monday, February 16th…

Happy Monday!

Ashlyn had a 2 week check up on Friday, and this little chunky monkey not only gained back up to her birth weight of 7lbs 10oz, but was up to 8lbs one oz! YAY! We were thrilled to hear of her weight gain, and to know that she’s getting the nutrition she needs from exclusively breastfeeding.. She had also grown to 20in from her birth length 19in. 40th percentile for both height & weight.. Our little ladybug is growing right along.. Oh, and she has also acquired a few nicknames in our household.. AshyRay (from daddy), turtle, and squeaky (from big sissy).. lol

Kaylor & I baked daddy a surprise for V-day.. Our heart shaped chocolate chip cookie turned out just a *tad* bigger than we had planned.. Daddy was thrilled to say the least though.. Chocolate chips are a man’s best friend.. well, maybe not all, but definitely our man! =) We had a fun Valentine’s day w/ the girls.. My mom brought over heart shaped brownies that I’m sure were calorie free… lol.. Erik was going to fix us a special steak & baked potatoe dinner, and when we heard mention of Steak N Shake, we got sidetracked.. When you haven’t had a burger in what seems like forever, it was a craving neither of us could pass! Soooo, since we’re home bound w/ the little one, my mom was nice enough to deliver! And apparently V-day was not over on Saturday.. I got the sweetest card tonight from Kaylor. (this project was a couple days in the making, according to Erik).. I’m going to scan it to share.. She can be so sweet w/ her homemade gifts.. Oh! And she also gave me a little white, stuffed puppy.. When I asked her where she got him she simply said, “Oh, from my toybox”.. It’s truly the thought that counts =)

(Kaylor decorated the heart cookie herself.. It says “DAD I ♥ U”

And just some pure randomness..
*Kaylor watching from the sidelines as Erik helped me pump using the new breast pump several days ago, “MOM! It’s like milking a cow!!”(cracking up laughing)…

*Kaylor coming into the room w/ 2 nerf balls under her shirt.. “Hey mom, where’s that milker thing?” (then walks away giggling hysterically)

Needless to say, she’s been quite the character…
