Brighton Kevin: 3 Months

Dearest Brighton,

My oh my what a very exciting 3rd month you have had and filled with so many firsts. We celebrated your first Thanksgiving with your first flight to Bermuda. You were a dream the entire flight and trip! 

You got to meet your Papa, Aunt Kiki, Uncle Peter, Cousins Bishop/Collins/Cooper/Boston, Aunt Bees, and soon-to-be Uncle Robbie! They came all the way to NY to meet you and see you be baptized. They are all just as smitten as can be with you sweet boy.



You went on your second trip and first time to Kentucky where Mommy & Daddy are from. You were blessed at your Mimi's church with your siblings by your side. You have had so many people praying for you for so long that it was nice for them to finally meet you!

You are loving every minute of being held, talked to, kissed on, hugged on, and loved by all who meet you. Your little smile is infectious and you are talking up a storm! You love when people talk back to you especially your sissy and brother!


You weigh close to 12lbs and are over 23 inches long. You wear 3 month clothes and take 8oz bottles 4 times a day. You sleep through the night much to mommy's happiness! You fall asleep around 9pm and sleep until about 6am. Waking for half a bottle and then back to bed for an hour or more of cuddles. Then you enjoy the rest of your breakfast.

You are pure joy in so many ways and I cannot wait to see what the next month has in store for you sweet boy.

I love you!

    The Collins Family Takes New York City

    My family came to visit us last weekend for some NYC winter fun and fun is exactly what we had! The kids played and played and played until they literally had enjoyed every single toy (and non-toy!) in the house!


    There were plenty of baby snuggles...

    And little divas in the city...

    Sightseeing all around...

    And then gaining a new brother-in-law to be!!!

    This is definitely a weekend that I will remember and cherish for a lifetime!

    Bless This Child: BKT

    The first weekend in December we hosted our family for the baptism of our baby boy Brighton Kevin. Words cannot express the love and faith that have surrounded this sweet baby since he was in my womb. So it meant the world to have our family here to celebrate!


    Mimi dressed Brighton in his daddy's baptismal outfit...

    And we attempted a family photo before the baptism...

    Aunt Kiki & Uncle Peter are his godparents and I can't think of two better people to be there for our son. Peter checked in on me the entire pregnancy and Kiki was just as scared as me throughout the whole process. They both hold Brighton in a special place in their hearts.

    Proud Mimi & Papa of our little miracle baby boy...

    Love my family so very much (but missing Shane, Amanda, & Sawyer!)...

    Aunt Bees & Soon-to-be Uncle Robbie loving on the baby boy Bees named...

    We are forever blessed with God's grace and the struggle that He spared us for our son Brighton Kevin. He is truly a great gift from the Lord and I hope Brighton will always know the blessing that he is to us.
