Random photos

It is a really nice break for Daddy. I am off till January 5th. I think Mommy will be ready for me to get back to work very soon....I better enjoy it while it lasts.

So I have been experimenting with my new camera (Thanks Lisa) while taking pictures of the family.

Sippee cup time!

It is so cute to watch her....the exersaucer is bit to big, but she will grow into it.

Look at the big girl playing with her toy all by herself!

Brinson's new favorite word.....well sound. She also likes to do it while she is feeding....oh what fun it is to be a dad! ;)

Mugshot (or Brinson with specs)

Last night Miss B got new glasses. While I hate the fact she has to wear them, it is so heartwarming to see her look straight at you when you're across the room and call her name. We thought at the beginning it was goin to be a breeze, we are finding out differently now. She knows exactly how to pull them off so it's a constant battle for now.

See how excited Brinson is about her new glasses?

Aunt Barb finally gets to meet Brinson!

Today, Brinson's great aunt Barb came to visit for the holidays. She has followed the blog faithfully since B was born and was so happy to get to meet her. Of course Brinson wasn't extremely social, she's still in the "I hate these new glasses, get them off me" mode.

The Baldwins stop by

Kim, Stephen and Zachary were coming back into town from visiting relatives in the country so they stopped by to see us. This was the first time Brinson and Zachary had ever seen each other in person (other than they were across the pod from us in the NICU when she was first born). It was so cool to see them interact. The Baldwins will be joining us on New Year's Eve so it will be good to get to see them again.

Look how I'm looking down at Zachary and Brinson's looking up at Kim!

Kim chattin with Brinson

Ooooooooooooooooooo....... a boy!

Tell me Zachary doesn't look like he's up to something! Check the look on his face! HA!

Go to the Baldwin's blog for more pictures and videos of the day!

B and Z

New ornament

Every year Ned and I have a tradition of buying a new ornament for the Xmas tree.

This year I bought two.

Friday, December 19, 2008 Spoonbaby?

Brinson has just started to get wild with the arms and legs. I think she has finally found them and by gosh she is going to use them. Bath time is even funnier than ever. I get all wet and she is flailing around like to trying to swim up the English Channel with no wetsuit.

Enjoy all the spoonage!

Coughing and Peas

Babies are weird creatures. Weird...why? Well just watch the video, they do the strangest must just be part of development. Hope you get a chuckle, I know we did.

Nana comes for a visit

While Mommy was out shopping and Meme was watching Brinson, to our surprise Nana arrives for a visit. She came at the perfect time, Brinson was wide awake just a rambling on.

Ahhh, what a life!

Chillin after breakfast....and this picture was so NOT staged! She's so silly.

Okay, enough with the washcloth already! Can't you people see I'm tryin to relax here?!?

Look out, Meme's back in town!

Here's Meme feeding Brinson breakfast this morning. Wouldn't you know it? That little stinker ate so well for her. I'm gonna have to keep her here!

Don't worry Mommy, I love you too. It's okay.

Needin a lil extra soothin

When one thumb isn't comforting enough....try 2. She does this often and it's so cute. I'll try to catch another one down the road.

Look at that beautiful sleeping Angel :)

Boy are we in for it when she's older........

Prayers needed for Kayleigh and her family

It is with great sadness in my heart that I am writing this entry. There are many others going through the NICU experience as we did. One of those is Kayleigh Freeman and her family.
Her blog can be found on our list over there ------------>.
I've been following it since we've been home, and have seen their ups and downs. It appears that Kayleigh is not expected to live now. Her body has taken all it can and the doctors have told the family what is coming. I ask that you please pray for all 3 of them. It was a really emotional morning for me to read the last entry. I know she's going to a better place and that she will have James, Peyton, Justin, Jacob and Cooper....waiting to play with her in Heaven.

Lots of love to you Freeman family. My heart goes out to you.

This is one way I like to sleep!

Brinson loves to sleep smashed up against something. We don't understand why, but it works.

There are 2 sure fire ways to get Brinson to sleep (when she is very tired). The first and best (I am little biased) is sleep on Daddy (see archive for photos of that) and 2nd....see picture!

Is that my Sippee Cup....

Peas, Peas the magical fruit...the more you eat the more you.....


Mom....are you singing that song to me again?!?

Cmon now didn't think we'd put a video up of her tootin, did ya??? :P
