9th Friday Rainbow Baby Blog Rodeo

Has your Rainbow hit a milestone this week?
Starred in a cute video?
Done something adorable? Funny? Downright embarrassing?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, 
than you have come to the right place!

Welcome to the Friday Rainbow Baby Blog Rodeo, a place to celebrate the amazing children who have come into our lives after loss, and to strengthen our bond as a community of Rainbow parents.

Every Friday we can gather here to share our little ones' triumphs, brag like the proud parents that we are, and yes ... even own up to our epic fails in parenting (all in good fun of course) via links to our own blogs with posts about any and everything Rainbow from the week.

Feel free to grab the button from the sidebar and help spread the word. Let's bring this Rainbow parenting community together.

I will go first...

We had a visit from the babies' Uncle Patrick, who just happens to be an amazing photographer. Check out these gorgeous shots he took of our little snowflakes...

And in other news... this week Bubba *finally* got the hang of jumping in the jump and go. Here he does a little jig. Squeaks gets a real kick out of his moves...

So... that is what Bubba and Squeaks
have been up to this week...

What have your rainbows been doing?

Wanna know how you can participate? 
It's easy! Just write a post on your own blog about what your Rainbow(s) has been up to this week, and then add the link to that post in the Linky widget below. 

Thanks for riding along on the rodeo!


  1. Kristen, they are so beautiful and I am so happy for you! I know it can be hard (re: yesterday's post) as I am also a mother of twins. Adam was 2 when they were born. One day I came home from work around 4 pm and my husband (who had them all day) said, "Take these kids! I'm either going to bed or jumping in the bathtub head first!" He was kidding about drowning himself but not kidding about going to bed! We burned up many pans of nipples & pacifiers. Out of necessity, we used the cheapest disposable diapers. They were formula fed and their baby food was not homemade. They were mostly dressed in hand me downs and gift clothing. We didn't have the equipment there is today because it hadn't been invented yet. But we all survived and they are grown and have their own homes now. I wrote some of the funny & poignant stuff in their baby books. It was a good time in my life and I know it is in yours, too. (((HUGS))) Always remembering Peyton....

  2. Ahh, I love seeing these uodates. Aren't kids just so amazing? I love the second shot.


  3. My little one is still super young, so no real milestones, though she is smiling daily and that seriously melts my heart! I did her one month post today though, so here she is...

    Your babies are so gorgeous, those pictures are just amazing!!
