First Word

Yesterday while feeding baby Rylan I heard the dreaded noise. The loud explosion, fill-up-the-diaper, noise. I said, “Whoa!” and slowly held him out a bit to make sure I stayed clean.

He looked up at me with wide eyes and said, “whoa.”

I'm Gorgeous!

If you tell Aubryn she is pretty or beautiful you will most likely be told, "No, I'm gorgeous." These pictures are of her after she fixed her hair. Yesterday my friend told her she was pretty and looked like her dad. Aubryn responded, "No, I am better than my dad. I am BET-TER than my dad." She is vain.

I had the biggest crush on Brian. I had a picture from a singles ward activity that he was in and I kept it tucked under my desktop mat at work. Through out the day I would pull it out, take a quick look at him, and let my heart fill with a wave of excitement. I had never liked anyone like I liked him. The more I got to know him, the more I liked him. I was falling in love.

The day came that he asked me to be his wife. I was sure I could never love more. My heart was full. To the top.

But somehow it happened. My heart continued to fill. Even though I thought there wasn’t room to love him more.

On the day of Isaac’s funeral, a day filled with emotions of grief and anguish, I loved him more than I ever had. He stood strong and told of our love for our son.

Another day, years later, I was working to bring forth another baby. There was Brian, by my side, loving me, tenderly touching and encouraging me. I knew I could never love him more.

And now today, I am sure, I love him so much more than ever! After a challenging week, (to say the least) I woke up to him climbing back in bed in the early morning hours. “What are you doing? Are you okay?” I asked him.

“Yes, I just got Rylan back to sleep and helped Aubryn.”

My Job Description

"Aubryn, what are you going to do when you get big?" I asked.

"When I'm a mom?"


"I'm going to be on my puter. Play Barbies with the sisters. And take pictures."

Mute Button Please?

"Mom, does that lady have a baby in her tummy?"

"Nooo, Aubryn. Shhh."

"Then why does she have such a big tummy?"
