Mixed Feelings

Marshall found a new friend tonight. This handsome fella was under Grandma's trampoline and Marshall wanted to see it... but not hold it. He wanted it far away... but then back again. We let it go in Grandma's garden... but he wanted to hold it. We got it back... he wanted it in the dirt. This all made for some great video. I just wish I had kept the cameras rolling. We put the frog in the dirt and Marshall said goodbye and as we walked away he said... "wubvv voo" (I love you). It was the sweetest thing.
It was a miracle to get a picture of Marshall this close to the frog. When he was tricked to touch it he squealed like a girl. I thought he was going to burst into tears. He was intrigued by it but didn't want anything to do with it. Yet... "wubvv voo."

I love YOU Marshall-and your tender heart.

Meet Tyler

It was so fun to finally see Tyler and see his similarities and differences to Marshall. His face seems a little longer (more like Mommy's) and his eyes are a lot like Daddy's. Other than that they look a lot alike. It's too soon to know if his eyes and hair will end up light or dark. The possibilities are mind-boggling. It's so fun to watch babies' characteristics develop.
I love this picture because it does a really good job of accurately showing off Tyler's massive hands. His feet are also really long. Looks like we might have ourselves a basketball player after all.

Tyler's almost two weeks old now and is still a sweet mellow baby. He really only cries when he needs his diaper changed or if Mommy makes him wait too long to eat (sorry little man!). Juggling the needs of two has definitely been an adjustment. Notice I don't count my own needs...not for now anyway. I'm just so greatful that Tyler is so patient and that Marshall loves him so much.
