Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

The First Ten Days

Well, we're just beginning to settle into parenthood. Today is the first day Joe is back to work, so little Joe and I are on our own--what an adventure! (We even have our first trip to the doctor without daddy today.)

Even though today is technically the eleventh day Joey's been alive, here's a quick look back at his first ten days of life.

He was born.

Then he slept,


and looked cute.

His first walk and trip to the park, which he slept through.

He made some funny faces,

and lost his sock. (Why these pictures won't rotate, I don't know.)

He had his first bath, which he didn't seem to enjoy.

On Thanksgiving we went to watch Daddy play football,
but it started to rain so mom and baby went home. It was his first time to
Hilltop Park (where Joe proposed) and his first time in the rain with an umbrella, of course.

His first Thanksgiving and (decent) family picture.

And, of course, he looks adorable...

especially when he's making faces with Daddy.


On Sunday we had him dedicated to the Lord
(or as Joe would say, "to the Jesus").

Then we were welcomed back by the junior highers

and they were introduced to Joe.


We had 4 jr. highers with birthdays in November and all of them lobbying
for Joey to be born on their birthday. One of the boys Sam B.
(not Simba as seen here) said from the beginning Joey'd
be born on his birthday...and he was!

That's sweet! He's a handsome little guy. And I'm totally laughing about your junior highers. My husband and I teach the junior high at our church, and that marker board made me laugh because they're attracted to doodling all over marker boards at that age! The one in our classroom always has something new on it. Very sweet, though, all those messages congratulating you and welcoming the new baby.
