Here are a few pictures from the homecoming parade. We all made it out, and I think we adults enjoyed it as much as Alaina did! Stephen slept through the whole thing under the care of Kay W. Thanks Kay!

A Candy Land themed float.

Alaina got a HUGE bag of candy.

Me and my girl.

You know you live in the country when . . .

. . . your one-year-old daughter's 200 word vocabulary includes the words "tractor" and "combine". ;-)

Sweet Stephen

Our Little Munchkin is now nine weeks old. He is 15 lbs, very good at holding up that heavy head, and loves to "talk". What a wonderful little guy he is!

He started sleeping 6 hour stretches at about six weeks (even earlier than his sister!) and is now settling into a good 8-10 hour night, for which his parents are profoundly grateful! Like his sister, he has been a very easy going baby.

In some things however, his own little characteristics are starting to show. He loves to smile! You don't have to work very hard to get a huge grin from this little guy! (Getting good pictures are another thing.) We're guessing he may have a cheery disposition.

One last picture. Our stroller has come into it's own. ;-)

A Follow - Up Post

Following up on my June post: I was due on August 12th and delivered ten days early on August 2nd, Aliza was due October 12th and delivered nine days early on October 3rd! We almost had a perfect pattern going there, but little Ginetta Kate switched things up so she could be born for her parent's anniversary. Good choice Little One!

Congratulations to you all on the safe arrival of little Ginetta Kate! We're so happy for you!

Just look at that face!

And this face. ;-)
