hi blogosphere,

  this is bryan, krista's 'significant other'. she's been pretty busy the last few days and asked me to write a little something to keep everyone updated on the happenings in our cozy little family unit but i'm a terrible, slow writer (this is already the third iteration of this cop out) so instead i'm just going to introduce the star of the show...

everyone say hello to dashiel oliver

ok dash. you are officially real now that you're on the internet.
 a few words of wisdom.
 anything you do or say on the internet will always be on the internet, so make what you do or say on the internet something you wouldn't mind your mom or mimi or poppy seeing.
 your sister is super friggin awesome and she's going to love you like 'whoa' but don't forget, she's a princess and she will tell you this repeatedly. while drawing on you with a purple marker
 your brother nathan (not nate) is a bit older than you and you couldn't possibly ask for a greater older brother. he's smart and funny and goofy and talented and nice. all things you should aspire to be
 your mom, okay, your mom. one thing, just be honest. tell her and show her and love her and listen to her and understand if you ever need to bury a body at 3 a.m. just call her up, she'll always have your back
 me, your pops, i'm easy, just watch football with me and let me sleep in sometimes and i'll drive the van while we go to bury that body of that sumbitch that surely deserved it.

we love you of course and we always will, even if you do end up on hoarders. but don't okay. or atleast be a hoarder that hoardes stuff and not garbage...actually...yeah, no. okay, i love you


go bucs!


  1. Congratulations to the three, now four, of you.

    Yes I agree that a hoarder of stuff is better than a hoarder of garbage. I think they call the good kind of hoarders "collectors"

  2. Brayn, AWESOME post. I almost said "Lovely", which it was, but might seem insulting somehow. Congratulations to you and Krista. Love the picture of Finn trying to lick the new sister. Classic! So much more of THAT to come. And, you know....Krista...well, I'd call her if I had a body to deal with. And now that I know you drive a get-a-way'm a bit inspired :)

    Seriously, I am so happy for you both!


  3. Such a handsome little fella! Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations to all! I hope you all have a wonderful time getting to know each other!

  5. Hello & Congratulations!
    Welcome Dashiel--can you please blog about how you chose the name? I know it is none of my business but if I was there visiting with KK, this is a question I would ask--anyhoo, hoping to see ya'll again this year!
    Best of life,
    JennyB AKA--ScootaB

  6. Love love love! Congratulations.

  7. how can i not cry and laugh at the same time? holy hell, what a family! best to all.


  8. This is a ridiculously awesome post, and it's not fair, Bryan, that you're just as amazing a writer as Krista because only one should be allowed per household.

    Also, please please PLEASE tell me you named your son Dashiel after Dash from The Incredibles.

    Pretty please? It's okay to lie.

  9. Congratulations to you all - a very worthy addition!

  10. Good to hear from you, i am glad everyone seems healthy. Congratulations!

  11. Oh happy belated new baby, birthday Dash! Krista, Finn and Bryan- I am so happy for you!

  12. OK, this one got me crying too. Seriously, I'm a mess. I love how Bryan describes you. Welcome to the planet, Dash! You're a lucky, lucky baby.

  13. I love this, reads like something my husband could have written exactly :))))

  14. What a wonderful family this little guy was born into. Many congrats to all on the new addition!!

  15. ahhh, i thought i commented on this! i am just rereading it because it is so sweet. dash is so sweet. congratulations! ahhh!


use your kind words.
