Growing out of newborn-size

Daddy declared today is the last day for this sleeper unless we want his toes to grow curled.

Six Weeks Old

It is a good thing these babies are cute because they have been quite the handful (handfuls?) lately. We are hoping that a six week growth spurt may be part of the issue with their constant scream/nurse/sleep cycle and that they will enjoy their bouncy seats and playmats more. Car rides and stroller walks are the other go-to for them so we are mighty thankful for the park nearby.Until they grow out of this phase, we will keep cuddling these two as much as they need it--Miss Sadface and Mr. Tarsier-eyes, as their sisters call them. (Seriously, if you Google "Tarsier" you can see images of what we think Grant's wide-eyed glare looks like)

One month old


Happy 60th birthday to our very own Grandma Deni! We celebrated with carosel rides, pizza, and lemon treats. She is a gift to all of us!

We Are Family

Everly Lou and Grant Jonathan--God's Own Children

 We had a joyful day welcoming Every and Grant into the Church on March 29, 2015.  As Carrigan told Grant that morning, "Did you know you are getting a new family today? Today you will be part of God's family!"  What a precious gift God has given us in this welcoming church.  And to be able to share it with so many loved ones.  A truly special weekend
The babes with their Godparents

Their gowns were lovingly sewn by the best seamstress I know (she just happens to be my mother-in-law).  Grant's wearing the same one his sisters and cousin did, which was made from my confirmation gown. (So fun to finally be able to use that blue ribbon!).  Eve's is new to her, made from the slip in my wedding dress.)

Daddy's side of the family (Mommy's side was delayed by a nosebleed--will try again at Easer)
Friends who feel like family
Grant's godmother is making sure that Delaney never feels displaced. :)
The whole, wonderful crew
