Eight years: First meeting

Eight years ago today Axel met Dean for the very first time. He was 10 years old here, wearing size 4T clothes (to compare, Angela who looks very tall in the video, is only 4ft 8!) Our boy is a man now. 18 years old. I can't believe that tiny little voice is his.

Oh my goodness! What a heartwarming moment, and I can't believe that eight full years have already passed since Axel was a little boy! I hope that your family is doing well, and that you guys had a splendid Christmas and have a happy New Year!

Hi Eagan Family!❤

Saw you vlog on SBSK and I just fell in love with y'all. What an amazing loving, caring, funny, sweet and busy family. Mom and Dad, my heart melts with me thinking about your big warm hearts....❤

I'm writing all the way from Denmark in Scandinavia. 🇩🇰 So i really hope you can understand my spelling? Can't wait to read all your blogs, and learn more about you all.

Take good care of each other and have a very happy New Year. 🎉❤

Hugs Jeanette

Have you thought about compiling this blog as a book? Its really difficult with blogs to start early on an move forwards (or am I just inept?).

Posting because I just found the family YouTube video and wanted to know if you guys are going to do another blog site or your own YouTube Channel because I know Google plus is closing I’m not sure if this affects the blogsite but just wanted to know if you guys are going to take it somewhere else since you haven’t posted since December 2018

Sanya, I didn't know that! However, I did just buy a domain a few weeks ago so maybe I'll just move it over there?

Jay Ritchie, I have thought about it a couple times over the years. I imagine it would be very expensive to publish this blog, that is 14 years old. Maybe if I publish a few years at a time?
