It’s been a little slow around here while we get ready for Baby #2 to arrive. We’re busy trying to get the guest bedroom converted into Lauren’s new “Big Girl” bedroom. How many princesses can you put in one room? I think we’re on our way to finding out, although we’re trying to do our (Read the Rest…)

    Your videos always leave me smiling! Thanks for posting! =)


It’s been a while since our last post because there hasn’t been too much to report!  We’ve had a lot of down time in the past month which has been really nice.  November and December are looking quite busy already so we’ll enjoy these weekends of rest and relaxation!  Josh did get out hunting last (Read the Rest…)

Lauren and Koda are getting to be good buddies… she breaks into a smile every time he walks up to her and she doesn’t mind a few licks here and there. She also likes to pull his hair, grab his paws and gives him a hard pat when she can, but he takes it all (Read the Rest…)

    So I heard that Lauren has some teeth coming in on top. I would love to see some photographic evidence :) Or even better yet, some video evidence.

    Love, Auntie Erin

    Oh, those videos are the best! Koda almost looks like he’s smiling….I think he’s beginning to understand where the action is taking place and is happy to be a part of it. Lauren is going to love that lab just like the two of you do.
    And already that little Lauren is learning to appreciate music! The best part of the videos is your loving voices and presence next to your beautiful daughter:)


3 Months Old

By: Steph | Tags: , ,

Lauren is 3 months old today and we can’t believe how much she changes in just one week… she’s growing so fast and I had a hard time putting away her newborn outfits. She’s “talking” more and loves being in her exersaucer. She has also started paying more attention to Koda and is not quite (Read the Rest…)

2 Weeks Old

By: Steph | Tags: , , , , , , ,

We made it through another week! This week has been much better in terms of adjusting and getting used to each other… that first week was pretty tough (especially on mom). Feeding is going much better, although the frequency is still a little overwhelming, and there are still some scheduling kinks to work on. I’ve (Read the Rest…)

First Week Home

By: Steph | Tags: , , ,

We’ve survived the first week! It’s definitely been a week of ups and downs (and a few breakdowns), but we’re all adjusting and hope that each day gets a little easier. The Grandmas have been such a tremendous help this past week, I’m not sure where we’d be without them. Between feeding every few hours (Read the Rest…)

Baby Photos

By: Steph | Tags: , , , ,

Not much to report this week so I just wanted to share some old baby photos! As I wrote in the previous entry, I’m getting anxious to meet the baby and see what he/she looks like… will he have Josh’s eyes or will she have my nose? We had a nice trip up to Grafton (Read the Rest…)

    It can’t be “30″ years . . . seems like only yesterday, right, Nana Jo? What darling babies you were! I remember Grandma Wanda titled that picture
    “Stephanie Sunshine”! She took so-o-o-o many pictures of you, Steph . . .
    How great that “K” Keck has such a photo-pro dad, Josh . . . I’ll want LOTS for my grandma “brag book”! We had such a wonderful Easter with the three (whoops . . . ) FOUR of you here. Thanks for making the long trip up to the “tundra”! Love, Mom

The snow has been relentless over the past week! Last weekend we got about a foot and the past 2 days we’ve gotten another foot. Here’s a picture after Koda and I dug out the driveway for the 3rd time in 24hours. I’m sure those of you enjoying the weather (and golf) in warmer climates (Read the Rest…)

    Josh and Steph,
    The snow looks beautiful — from afar that is:) We were at Chris and Jayne’s last night and showed the kids the website. They were so excited to see the pictures — and of course all the snow and Koda, their favorite “trick dog.” Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday and getting a peek at Baby Keck’s room. What a busy weekend — paint, shovel, paint, shovel……. Love to you all, Mom

First, I’d just like to thank everyone who has checked out our site! It’s fun to read your comments and we’re happy to share this experience with you. I had a doctor appointment this morning and after having an ultrasound, these routine appts. are pretty uneventful! Too bad we can’t see the baby every time! (Read the Rest…)

    Hi S & J-

    It is so fun to read your updates! I am looking forward to seeing both of you on Sunday and to see Steph’s growing lady bump. Love that term. Before you know it Baby Keck will be here. The summer of 2007 will be very different from past summers. I feel so blessed to be able to see my friends families grow. You will be such wonderful parents. Love, Patty
