Don't know if it's a word, but that is what the last 2 weeks have felt like: surreal. We've had so much activity that I think we've forgotten what normal is. Hmmm, is there going to be a normal? Probably not....

Corwin's baptism was great. Here he is all dressed up in Grandaddy's baptism gown. Daddy was baptized in it, Rhianwen, and Alden, and now Corwin. Cousin Mastin thought he was a girl, tsk tsk. His new fiance almost kicked him when he made that mistake...ha ha! Regardless, I'm glad babies wear more normal things now. It's hard enough juggling a baby without worrying about cold legs and wrinkly clothes.

Being held up in prayer after his shower. He was soaked. Go Pastor James! Grandaddy also prayed.

The fam. Pastor James didn't know what to think. Wild! Most of them were there for the wedding of Lee and CeCe the night before. Thanks Uncle Brooks and Dan for the picture!

With Grandaddy, what a special guy.

So special in fact, that Rhianwen and Alden traveled home with him and apparently played dress-up while daddy was away on business (these pics are from Grandaddy...thanks!). After all of the hubub of the weekend, Corwin thought the house with just mommy was mighty quiet. He was MUCH happier when everyone returned a couple of days later.

At Grandmama's reading.

Peering into the chicken coop. Alden loves feeding the chickens. This could go in Country magazine.

My sweet girl. When will I appreciate my kiddos the way I should? Probably when I'm an empty nester.

Goofing with Aunt Clara who came to play.

Wow! Greatmama, that's a heavy load! They loved being read to by her.

Back at home helping daddy with the new grill. Good thing we have a big backyard; it's our go-to most waking moments.

Holding Corwin's hand...um, arm.

And this would be why we have to have a bath every night even if we didn't get all muddy and polleny out in the yard. Honey all in the hair. I mean all in it. Sometimes I'm afraid to put him down for nap b/c I think the ants might find him and carry him away. He's still interested in potty business, but mostly if he thinks it'll get him out of bed for moment. When he goes and dumps it into the toilet from the potty, he'll often say, "This is the BEST toilet I ever seen!". So funny.

We just thought you could catch a glimpse of family devotion songs. Please forgive the horrible singing. Alden had a time trying to say B-I-B-L-E. Sometime I hope to show the stop and go one too that they learned at Grandmama's.

Corwin LOVES talking. He tries so hard to be expressive. He really can get close to saying I love you...it truly is intentional. He tries to mimic Wally.

Corwin is now more than 2 months old. At his well visit, he weighed in at 14lb 6oz (95th percentile) and was in the 90th percentile for height. Big boy! I'm thanking God every day! He's strong too. Please pray that we'll handle the hard days. We've all had colds, and I reached the end of my rope the other day. I'm praying Ephesians 4 for myself especially that I would be "made new in the attitude of your minds".


  1. That's a great family photo!

  2. Looks like a fun time at Corwin's baptism! Glad everyone got to come. Love the pic of Alden and the honey...so cute! So Benjamin and Corwin weigh about the same :) ...he is a big guy and cute too!

  3. wow, such a lot of good stuff here. I will not remember it all! Clair(spelling???) looks like a country Western singer with that wig on, ha! Love the pic of Alden and the coup. Corwin is really almost there with the "I love You"--so amazing!!

  4. So sweet of Wally's parents to take Rhianwen and Alden off your hands for a little while, especially while Corwin had a cold. What a blessing they are!

    That's incredible that Corwin is already trying to imitate sounds. Got yourself a little child prodigy there.

  5. Looking again at the pics. It is weird , but as I look at the pictures of Rhi I see so much of my Mom in her.

  6. Oh my, the "I love you" stuff is crazy! I mean, I was impressed with him just holding his head up so well, and then he goes and talks! We're going to be getting some good blog posts about this boy ....
