2: My precious little baby I have loved you from the start You are a tiny miracle Laying closely to my heart Each day I feel your presence Each day you heart beats softly As only I could know So I’ll keep this in a special place And remember each year through Of this very special time in my life The moment I carried you

5: Mother's Heart I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun You're part of me my little one. As Mother with child, each day I grew, My mind was filled with thoughts of you. I'd daydream of the things we'd share, Like late-night bottles and Teddy bears. Like first steps and skinned knees, Like bedtime stories and ABC's. I thought of things you'd want to know, Like how birds fly and flowers grow. I thought of lessons I'd need to share, Like standing tall and playing fair. When I first saw your precious face, I prayed your life be touched with grace. I thanked the angels from above. And promised you unending love. Each night I lay you down to sleep, I gently kiss your head and cheek. I count your little fingers and toes; I memorize your eyes and nose. I linger at your nursery door, Awed each day I love you more. Through misty eyes, I dim the light, I whisper, "I love you" each night. I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. As mother and child our journeys begin, My heart's yours forever little one.

23: Buccaneers | Mom, Dad, Jackson, Grandma & Papa went to the cities to the Mall of America Field (The Dome) to watch Papa's team The Minnesota Vikings play against Daddy's team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It started off interesting the Vikings were ahead the whole first half but the Buccaneers prevailed in the second half ending with a victory of 24-20. It was Grandma, Papa & Jacksons' first time at the Dome. It was also Daddy's first time seeing his favorite team play in person so he was ecstatic for the win. | Mommy, Daddy & Jackson at the game!

27: FAMILY VACATION The Bruns Family went to a resort in Alexandria for a 4 day family vacation. We played miniature golf, swam in a pool, went tubing, boating, fishing and just hung out. The first night we went into Alex and ate supper at the old train depot. It was a good time but the weather was a little scary. The trip was cut short when the electricity went off during the night after Jackson & I watched a tree get struck by lightening and almost hit the cabin. We all woke up to a bad storm and found out a tornado had touched down a few miles away. We packed up our things in the dark and got out of there.
