Happy Birthday Brik!

When we decided to name Brik, "Brik," Matt had one hesistation. He was afraid that we would have a little, tiny, scrawny kid with a huge name like Brik. And that just wouldn't work for Matt. I googled the name "Brik Hansen" and only one link came up and it was some guy in Norway or Sweden. (He was cute too - so that was a bonus!) Since almost 90% of our ancestors come from Scandinavia, I figured the name would fit just fine. Brik is the farthest thing from a little, scrawny kid. On his one year check up, he rang in at 34" tall- the biggest of all of our kiddies (and we seem to grow them huge).


With a name like "Brik," what else can you have for your first birthday cake, than a brick? (Or brick wall in our case!)A little help from Gracie and cousin Kate.Can I touch it???A bite for Brik . . . a bite for BG ( aka Big Guy) . . . a bite for Brik . . . a bite for BG Squishy boy - we love you!!!

Happy day . . .
