"Did you ever think, dear mother, as the seeds of me you sowed
As you breathed new life inside of me and slowly watched me grow,
In all your dreams about me when you planned me out so well,
When you couldn't wait to have me there inside your heart to dwell,
Did you ever think that maybe I was planning for you too,
And choosing for my very own a mother just like you?
A mother who smelled sweet and who had hands so creamy white,
A tender, loving creature who would soothe me in the night?
Did you ever think in all those days while you were coming due,
that as you planned a life for me I sought a life with you?
And now as I lay in your arms, I wonder if you knew-
while you were busy making me, I was choosing you!"
 -Colleen M. Story

In May, 2004 we were given a blessed little gift.  Ashlynn, arrived on her due date within 4 hours of induction. *big huge grin*  I picked her first name, I thought it sounded unusual and pretty.  Her first middle name is the middle name of my husbands Grandmother and the first name of my Mom's sister plus, the kids liked it from a Nickelodeon show! I got the second middle name from my best friend, Shelle.  It is her middle name. :-) Ashlynn was welcomed by Daddy, big brother Austin (who had to leave the room right after she came, due to a surprised and upset tummy!) Grandma Fran and Grandma Inman, and my closest friends Michelle and Christy.  It was a wonderful day!

Her first Halloween... mmm candy!

Ashlynn enjoying Brothers baseball game.

Ashlynn was throwing a little fit when Kitten came over and laid next to her and consoled her by licking her head... when she noticed, she gave her a big hug.
