Allie's Two

balloons Today we celebrated the second birthday of our precious little Allie. We have two birthdays this week. Charity and Allie.

This little girl is the most precious gift God could have ever given us. Susan and I were suffering from empty nest syndrome way too early in life so God, in His infinite providence and wisdom, gave our lives new purpose and fresh meaning. It is difficult to contain our excitement when we think about the possibilities and tremendous hope that Allie's little life will bring. We're thankful for the hope she has brought already.

What are you thankful for these days?

Whooping Like an Indian

Here's the charming and beautiful Susan bouncing and whooping it up in the living room.

Can you tell I like having my new camera with the cool video feature?

pigtails and graduates

Here's a video of Allie pinching little crackers between her fingers and feeding herself. This is huge progress. This wasn't happening even a couple of weeks ago.

The pigtails are courtesy of Grandma Yolanda.

Charity's 21

We sent this homemade happy birthday wish to Charity's phone this morning.

And then I sang her our traditional birthday song. Not the one you sing. We sing the Beatles Birthday Song.

Charity is living and working down in Berkley these days. She's doing well.
