Underballs, cont.

My little underwear model, i think he's got what it takes, especially the tucked-in look.

And here they are, the world-famous underballs!!!

Bringing Lu Home

I've never seen a kid so soft and loving with his little sister. He loves to hold her and can't get enough.
She's had enough, though.

Bryn really loves Lu most of the time, we just have to keep a little closer eye on her, just to make sure.

Here's Grandma with her 3 grandkids, I think Max is working on Blue Steel.

Very ready to head home and have my backside covered up. It got more exposure there than it really needed.

Easter 2008-The missing archives!

There's not much that needs to be said about there pictures, they show the life and times of best friends and worst enemies-Max and Bryn.

Max's First Day of Preschool

Obviously very happy about something. He actually really likes preschool and was mostly upset that I wanted his picture in front of the bushes and not the front door. This kid definitely has a mind of his own.

The Knots

Anyone who has ever been around Bryn when she's tired already knows about her hereditary knot-tying disorder that she inherited from her Grandma Gibson, who got it from her Grandma Anderson, etc. ( I think that's how it went). Anyway, I thought I would share a collage of some of her masterpieces. Ben and I have become quite the knot-untyers.

The latest of Baby Lu

Sleeping away on her two-week birthday, she's already grown a ton.

Her first real bath given to her by Grandma Noble, don't you love her bling?
A bit of a grump, but that's okay, she's pretty nice most of the time.

My late-night ramblings

So, it's 2 in the morning and i just sent Lu back to the nursery and am feeling a little sleepy, but just wanted to reflect a little. My dad sent a text right about the time Lu was born talking about how no matter how many times you get a new one, it's always this amazing miracle. She's gorgeous and fresh from God. I'm amazed by so many things, like how your body puts itself back together in so many different, little ways. I think because things have gone so well with this little one getting here, i take for granted a lot of the blessings, like she eats great, she's slept great so far, even when she cries it's cute (i'm not sure how long that will last). anyway, my body feels really good and she's perfect, so everyone's prayers were answered. I hope she realizes and understands early-on how much she is loved. I hope she survives Max's and Bryn's love. Thanks to everyone for all the love and support.

Elf Dance

You all have to go look at this video Ben's sister, Amber made with her family and Max and Bryn in it. Max and Bryn apparently watched it about 30 times.
