…And Everything Changed

On January 16, 2012 by Eddie

As I said in my last post, I realize it’s been quite a while since I posted anything on my blog. That’s a bummer for me, because I didn’t want to be the guy that flakes out and stops blogging after a month. Turns out, I am that guy. Oh well.

But the reason for my blog hiatus is pretty cool. On December 14th, my wife Danielle gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Emmeline Rae Kirkland. She is absolutely adorable, and has already been an incredible addition to our family. She was 8 lbs, 7 oz, and already she’s so much bigger than Jude was at this age, which is nice because I don’t feel like I’m going to break her! I have absolutely no idea what I’m in for having a baby girl, and more than likely I’m completely done for! But I can’t wait to see what happens over the next few years.

Right now, I’m trying to put the pieces of life back in place one-by-one and find some semblance of a routine. Balance is something that I strive for in life, trying to maintain a healthy balance between my life, marriage, family, and work. Right now, that balance is completely out of whack and for good reason. It seems like certain seasons in life tend to tip the scale one way or the other, and I’m definitely in one of those seasons. Slowly but surely, we will find a new “normal.”

Anyway, here’s our amazing little girl. She is blue-eyed, tall and beautiful, cuddly in some moments, fierce in others, and we love her like crazy. We are incredibly blessed, and so thankful for every day we get to spend with the kids God has entrusted to us.

btw: Her name is pronounced Em-A-Lyne. Just to clear that up. She’ll probably hate us for that one day, oh well.
