We have a roller

Today Bryn decided to roll from her back to her belly! She has been going belly to back for several weeks now and has been trying very hard to go back to belly but just couldn't seem to get her arm out of the way. Tonight she figured it out!

She is also talking all of the time now. Paul came home tonight and said when he walked in it sounded like there was a kitten in our house. She just squeels up a storm! It is so cute!

She is learning something new everyday. It is so fun to watch her and Halle grow and be a part of their day to day accomplishments!

March For Babies

On Saturday my family will be walking for the March of Dimes in the Annual Walk for Babies (previously known as walk america). The March of Dimes found the benefits of surfactant which is one of the main reasons Bryn was able to recover so quickly.

The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start. Bryn was born at 36 weeks gestation with immature lungs and Pnemonia. She was given 2 doses of Surfactant which helped her lungs develop. Surfactant research was funded by March of Dimes! Without this treatment Bryn would not be the healthy baby that she is today! Please help me support the March of Dimes by donating today!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

If you would like to donate to this amazing organization or would like to walk with us on Saturday please visit

Our little family
The Stephens

Carter's, Duyck's, and Teel's (my side)
Nick and Jenny (Godparents)
Last Sunday we finally baptised Bryn. The entire Stephens family made the trip back to Iowa to celebrate with us as well as many other family and friends. Nick and Jenny (Bryn's Godparents) made it here from out of town but not without 4 new tires for Jenny. After pulling over with a flat on the interstate, replacing 2 tires, driving 12 miles, and replacing the other 2 tires they finally made it! We appreciate all the hard work it took to get here!

Bryn is doing great, and growing like a weed! Halle is still loving her little sister and is not yet showing much sign of jealousy. I am hoping it will never come (wishful thinking I know!)
