The Dunkas…Jude’s first day at the beach!

The Dunkas


I always get asked “What does Dunka mean?”

Good question. Kris made it up one day when we were laying around enjoying our new (at the time) son. He started talking like a caveman and ‘Dunka‘ came out.

I know it sounds strange, but to us, its just us.

I got a call from my twin sister, Christina, and she invited us to the beach with her little family.

I couldn’t pass it up. I love my family, and now that I have Jude, I was super excited!

I had really horrible experiences as a child that involved the water so I don’t go in anymore.

Amen Kris was all for it because Jude had a blast.

Putting this post together, it was really hard to pick a handful of photos.

Kris and I never planed to have children, even before we got together we had our minds set on a childless future. When I found out I was pregnant, my heart told me differently.
My son is everything to me.

My Heart My Love My Light

This picture (above) was taken a couple of months before Jude was born.

I can’t believe the size of my belly.

I was told I was going to miss it.

I miss feeling Jude wiggling around.

Before we became parents….
…after god gave us our biggest blessing.

Its been a fun ride so far and I’m sure its just going to get better.

We all got home safe without sunburns, so it is safe to say Jude’s first day at the beach was filled with good times and will be remembered…always

    Love the post! Thanks for sharing.
    We though the same as you and your partner. Never planned and been ready to have a child. But when we found out and had it, It has never been happier than now in life.

    That means so much to me that you said that even though he was not planned you are so happy with the way it turned out. I am pregnant and trying to wrap my head around it still!!
