I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.

How Sweet are These?

My Handsome Little Man!!!!
The story behind Snoopy.....Snoopy was Ashley's when he was little, many years later his cousin's little girl claimed it, and when Nathan was born she gave it to Nathan. This Snoopy has now been owned by three different children and made a circle back to Ashley's life through Nathan.

Nathan being loved on by his cousin Ethan. It was so sweet, Ethan must have kissed him a dozen times.

Maddy giving Nathan kisses.

Now really, have you ever seen anything sweeter? Maddy & Ethan are Ashley's brother's children and they are visiting for a few weeks. It was so hot the day we took pictures and the kids did great, as you can see Nathan handled it well by going to sleep.

Summer Fun at Papaw's & Mamaw's

Nathan's first time swimming. He really likes the water. Don't worry all you aunts and grandmother's he had sunscreen SPF 55 on and only stayed in the water about 10-15 minutes.

Baby Dedication

Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,
he will not depart from it."

This was a day I have been waiting for a long time to have. It took many years for us to have a baby and in God's time he surely blessed us with Nathan. Today we dedicated him to God.

There are so many things that I pray for our baby to have in his lifetime, but first and foremost it is for him to have a relationship with God. As our Pastor stated this morning, it is up to Nathan to chose to have God in his life, but it is up to us as parents to guide him and bring him up in a Christian home.

2 Months Old & A Day at the Lake

Fun at the lake!

You have to take a nap after playing hard at the lake!

Hanging out at the lake. Look at that handsome man.

Visiting with his Great Grandmother Gran last week.

Nathan had his 2 month check-up today. My baby is growing and time is passing to fast. He weighed 11 lbs 12 oz and was 23 inches long. The pediatrician said he was perfect.

Family Times

This is Nathan's Great-Great Aunt Floy.
The picture below is 4 generations. Aunt Floy is the sister to Mr Reggie's dad.

This past weekend was Ashley's family reunion. Everyone seemed so excited to see Nathan. He really is a blessing in our life and as many there Saturday said, "He sure was prayed for." Many of you know how long we waited for Nathan to enter our lives. Thank you again to all of our families and friends who prayed for us, the pregnancy, and now for Nathan.

More Pictures

7 Weeks Old Today

Wow, how time keeps flying by. Nathan is growing so much and developing his own little personality. He as really started making his own little facial expressions, laughing, and cooing. He is sleeping good at night, but day time naps are few and short. I know be thankful for him sleeping at night.

I know you ladies will understand these pictures and the men will probably side with Ashley. These are my " my baby will only be a baby once pictures." They are cute and have fluffy blankets. Ashley, I am afraid, thinks they are not manly enough. I told him I have years ahead to take big boy manly pictures, but these where for me to remember his baby days. Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at them, we have!
