My kid is funny.

This post is going to be centered more around the Axman because he's just straight up funny.

Before I get into some of the recent Axel antics, I'll give a quick Bridget update.  Ms. Smalls turned 6 weeks on Tuesday!  How quickly time flies.  She still gets carted around with me everywhere I go, and she's such a good sport.  There's only been one instance where she lost her marbles in a public place and it was due to the fact that when this girl is hungry, this girl is hungry.  

At her one month appointment, the doctor found it pretty humorous that she had gained two pounds in as many weeks.  She is gaining weight quickly and I'm sure will be nice and round for Halloween - our own little pumpkin. :)

Okay, so now that you've had your fix of Bridget, lets talk about... the Axman.

My sister has said for a long time that Axel is the funniest human being she's ever encountered.  I attribute part of this to the fact that she adores her niece and nephew - but the…

Operation Hashtag: Complete!

There are defining moments in our lives that ultimately help build us into the person we are today.   Weddings, births, deaths, a first kiss... and determining a perfect hashtag.  If you are on Facebook, you probably saw the post where I posted our options to choose between.  I got such a kick out of the responses - this is definitely a topic that people are passionate about!

Ultimately the winning hashtag was #bridgiesmalls.  Congrats to Heidi Lawson, who came up with this one over a Sangria Mimosa.  You have won lifetime snuggles with Bridget Grace. :)  

(Side note:  for those who do understand the #bridgiesmalls hashtag, you can read about Biggie Smalls here.  Biggie was also known as The Notorious B.I.G. and is known as being one of the greatest rappers of all time.)

Second place was a close one, it was between #BridgetGraceDiaries and #GracedbyBridget.  #GracedbyBridget slithered by with a handful more votes - so congrats to Michelle Nelli for coming up with that one... you hav…

And we're back!!! Introducing Bridget Grace Bernfeld!

I used to be really good about keeping the blog up to date.  Really, I was.  In fact, I really enjoy taking the time to sit down and chat through what's going on.  It's great to sit back and peruse the previous postings, as I used this as the primary medium to update friends and family on the adventures with Axel.

Well, now we have new adventures to share and thanks to the generous maternity leave offered by my employer, I have some time to get going on this again.  Guilt plays into this as well, as I would hate to have this great chronicle of Axel's development and nothing on our new addition.

New addition?  What?

Well, in case you missed it, we welcomed Bridget Grace Bernfeld into the family on September 5, 2017.  She was born at 10:41am and weighed in at 7 lbs, 1.5 oz and 19 inches long.  I'm biased, but I think she's just beautiful.

I had a C Section with Bridget, as I did with Axel.  However, this one I knew was coming.  The experience was really interesting …

Opinions on Minions

A quick shout out to one of the folks on my team... we'll call him Tyler. He called me out for the fact that I have not updated my blog in, oh, FOREVER, and so here it is.

Last time I posted was, oh... NEW YEAR'S DAY 2015. And it was about my resolution of keeping up with my blog because it had been so long. What an absolute failure of a resolution. Then I made that resolution again. And failed again. For those of you who take the time to read these, I apologize. And I should know that if I were actually good about staying on top of this, my blogs wouldn't be so freaking lengthy. At this point in time I have a year and a half (plus) to catch everyone up on!  (Don't worry, I only chose a handful of things to chat about... it's long, but it could be worse.)

So where to start, where to start...  

Axel :  He's always a good topic and the reason the blog was created. He's now three. Yup, he's entered the Threenage years. Serenity now.

The Axman starte…
