Hair they are...

A few more pictures of our new little lady (including the hair)

Our lovely Midwives Dr. Jill and Dr. Kathrine

Her chubby little self yesterday evening with first day puffiness.

Holding Daddies fingers, (don't worry she does have all ten.)

A few of my favorites with her brothers.

Leroy was very fascinated by her and the fact that she would hold his finger.

This guy wasn't so sure at first but warmed up after a bit.

Phi trying out the finger trick.

Her first bath today.

Here's the hair

And the latest and greatest taken this afternoon when her hair got all dry.

She and mommy have been doing very well thus far. Thanks to everyone who was praying for us, things went so smoothly, we truly felt the Lord's tender mercies through it all.
A big thank you to Grampa and Gramma and A. Susie for taking care of the three musketeers while we're resting here at home.

4 Years Old

This post has been a while coming as his birthday is actually the seventh of this month. He tries to pose for the camera these days and then wants to see what he looks like on the screen. Easier to get a picture, just as hard to get a real smile. :)

He was looking forward to the birthday this year and was very into what the cake was going to be... clear since last fall. He changed his mind tons of times but finally decided on a truck. He had requested red but we had to compromise because I made whip cream frosting and it wouldn't go darker than pink.

He was satisfied once he saw the finished product.

Chocolate cake with whip cream frosting.

It actually tasted good and didn't seem like too much sugar.

A shovel and leather gloves, his gifts from Uncle AJ and Aunt Ruth which included some tic-tacs. They were his favorite part of course and rattled around in his back pocket all night. :)

And this one from Grampa and Gramma and Aunt Susie brought great excitement to all of them.

It's even fun for grown ups!!

It's an older train set they found on Craig's List and has miles of track. I like that fact that the trains look more realistic and less cartoony than then newer sets. It is going to be an awesome creative play thing for years to come. We got the down stairs rec room done just in time! :)

He also got a Lego Duplo Tech Erector set from us which is great for creative play. I haven't gotten any pictures of it but highly recommend it for boys.

He has gotten so grown up over the last year, but he still doesn't like new things or too much change with out getting used to the idea first.

Some favorites right now.

Food would be a toss up between Pizza and Egg salad sandwich.

Favorite color is still Red.

He loves to talk and explain things and has gotten much more out going.

He considers Uncle Dave his measure for being grown up. "When I get as big as Uncle Dave I'm gonna do such and such."
It is also his goal to be able to run as fast as Uncle Dave.

Very belated happy birthday post but wanted to get it done before the newest little one arrives The due date was yesterday but we're still hangin' in there. It's OK by me this time as I'm feeling well and sorta enjoying the current routine for now. I'm sure that will change in a few days!!
