Opening our hearts to life’s possibilities

The First Year of Ryan Juliana

Posted by Bryce Wend on October 30, 2011

Looks like the last post I did was when our baby girl turned 6-months.   I guess you can say we’ve been a little busy, but 6-months of no posts!?!  Geeze.  Well at least I got photos!

What a great first year it has been, we are so blessed.  It is such a pleasure to see her little personality growing more and more each day.  Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what Ryan Juliana is made of.

Scott Court: The Before and Afters

Posted by Bryce Wend on September 27, 2011

After seven great years in our home at Scott Court it’s time to move on.  In honor of our very first house I am dedicating this post to the best little starter home a gal could ask for.  When we bought this house it was full of possibilities and we filled it to the brim with a life well lived over the last several years. 

Here’s a collection of the before and after photos.

And the best before and after ever:

Goodbye Scott Court!

Ryan Turns 6-Months

Posted by Bryce Wend on April 16, 2011

We’ve hit another milestone, baby girl is now 6-Months old!  Aside from some teething episodes, she’s an incredibly happy baby right now.  She’s gotten pretty stable with sitting up and we’ve started solid foods.  This girl loves to eat!

Love those eyelashes!

This photo makes my heart sing.  (Both children laughing at the same time is a rarity around here these days.)


Going for a basket ride…

And in case there was ANY doubt that these two are related:
