New Home, Part I

No pictures today. I apologize to those of you who can't read.

Maren & I now own the house! We did all the paperwork yesterday, signed for it, and now we officially own it!

At the request of a certain parent (my dad), we'll try to get some pictures of the house this weekend. I have a few, but they're not very good. So we'll do that this weekend.

Also, Maren's mom comes this weekend for an 8-day visit starting Sunday. Maren's estatic...pray for me. We pick her up in Shreveport, I know she won't even notice me this trip until we get back to Marshall.

First bath

This weekend I gave Eowyn a bath for the first time. It wasn't her first bath, just the first time I gave her a bath. Quite an experience. I was worried she was going to mess the whole time. In all honesty, I think she's becoming a bit "potty-trained" already. She knows that the perfect time to pee and poop is as soon as the diaper comes off.

Seems like she's getting bigger every day. I was feeding her tonight and she was staring intently at me with one of those "who are you?" looks.

Maren's headed back to Waco this next weekend for her own checkup with the Dr. I'm jealous. But somebody has to work...

4 Weeks

So I posted this blog earlier today. This is a "PS" at the beginning instead of the end. First, Eowyn is 4 weeks old today. Second, Maren took Eowyn in to be weighed. She weighs 10lb 9oz now. That's 95 percentile, for those of you keeping track at home. She's a chunker. In fact, she seems to be a lot like her Uncle Karl in the respect of crying if food isn't in her mouth the minute she wants it to be.

Here are some videos. These first two were from August 26 and the last one was Sept. 10. As a word of warning, you will probably find the last one long & boring if you are not family. Its just Eowyn grunting & looking at the camera. If you push the play button, you are watching at your own risk. Any grumbling, complaining about length, and boredom come with the following instructions: Step 1, Go to the bathroom. Step 2, Lift toilet seat. Step 3, Insert head into toilet bowl. Step 4, Flush. Step 5, Repeat. Consider yourself swirlied.

Pot Pourri

No real theme here today, just a quick blog before meetings and a day of classes.

Here Eowyn is telling me about her day. It usually consists of loud, long "WAAAH"'s followed by short, fast "huff"s.

"Sneaky Mommy deleted the picture with her face in the picture while Daddy was out walking Baylor. I didn't tell him either...he'll find out tomorrow when he tries to load it on the blog after telling Mommy he didn't get one of her face. But that's ok because she hadn't had a shower and she was kind of smelly..."

Baylor enjoys two games...Scratch-n-sniff and she's doing both...

Church clothes! Complete with Packer socks. Say "Go Packers!"

After a long hard day of eating, sleeping, crying and pooping.

Direct TV

Today we had our television hooked up. It was a big day for Eowyn, as she finally gets to be brainwashed in the same manner of all other kids in the United States. After all, we all know TV was created by God for Americans, and therefore is a God-given right....right??

But here are pictures in celebration of Eowyn's last night with no tv...

Time for an update!

Its hard for us to update very often since we don't yet have internet at home. But soon that will all be in the past! And soon, we will also have a house and property in our name! Woo-hoo!

But now to the important of Eowyn Grace.

Here I was kissing Eowyn on her cheek...she turned her head and started sucking on my nose...

Baylor loves her new little sister. We can't wait to see them play together.
