Bryan holds the child...

This one goes out to our dear friend Bryan who is soon to be a Daddy to little Eden Elizabeth! Though he panicked a bit when we placed Evan in his arms, deep down we know he loved it.

It's amazed me how once we had Evan, Travis and I automatically knew how to be Mama and Daddy. There is just something about holding your own precious child that brings out the natural parent in you. You realize how much this little person needs you for everything, and you do anything to protect and care for your baby.

Bryan it's has been so fun watching you get more and more excited as Eden is growing. Your eagerness to learn more and research items is awesome. We know you are taking great care of Katie and that she adores you more each day because of it.

We pray that our Lord continues to have his hand over you both. That he continues to grow each intricate part of Eden. That Katie stays strong, healthy and stress-free as she finishes school, and that Bryan continues to protect, support, and guide his family. We love you and miss you!


  1. This is so sweet - it made me cry! Thanks Bec. I'll make sure Bryan sees it. You've hit the nail on the head! It's been really amazing to see him transform bit by bit thus far, and I can't wait to see him as Daddy. He's going to be great.

    We love and miss you guys too! I can't wait to see you again (soon!), and we really can't wait to introduce you to our little girl.

  2. Travis and Becca,

    Thank you for the sweet kind words. I hope I can be as great a father as Travis is. I can't wait for you to meet Eden and I hope that things are going well for you in Nebraska. Boston (specifically, Cambridge (specifically, Katie and I)) miss you a lot.
