On June 23rd, a long awaited princess was born into our family: Blair Kennedy Collins. She is truely an answer to many, many prayers. I had the opportunity to be at the hospital while she was being born and had the privelage to hold her before she was 1 hour old. I fell in love! I just inhaled one breath of her and I swear I could smell Heaven on her. I was so happy for my sister, Sarah and her husband, Scott. Over the past few months I've been able to watch her grow. If I miss a week seeing her, I miss too much! She smiles and giggles and drinks a lot of milk!!! She also loves watching Paula Dean! She's definitely a Kreider!!!! I love this little angel so much and I hope that I can be the best "Aunt Kiki" for her!
Me and Blair
Sweet baby angel!
Proud Mom and Dad!
Today, (well technically yesterday) my younger sister and her husband welcomed their first child, Colin Kristopher Brown. Colin is the little prince that we have been waiting for! We have so many girls in our family! We're excited to have a little boy! I noticed that after he was born, Libby put her Facebook status as, "My cup runneth over." When I read that, the realization that my "little Libby" was all grown up hit me and I was overwhelmed with happiness for her. I am so proud of her and I can't hardly wait for October 17th when I get to fly to SLC to see them! Libby and I grew up only 21 short months apart from one another. We were basically twins, often referrred to as the "little girls." We did everything together. We wore the same clothes, played with the same toys, worked at the same places, had a lot of the same friends. We even had the chance to go to college together. It's amazing to see her move ahead in her life and to see her grow. She's paving a great path for me to follow. I love you Libby VERY much!!!
Welcome little prince!
Just Colin and his mommy!
I am one proud Aunt Kiki! Those kids don't know what's coming their way with being in the Kreider family! I promise you that it won't be boring and that Aunt Kiki will always be your favorite aunt!!!
And for my precious Izzy who has been with our family for 12 years..... you are very special to me. Hold on to being a little girl just for a little bit longer!!! I love you very, very much.
