The grumpy pants

Happy or grumpy? I couldn't really tell at first. A few minutes later, though, I was pretty sure it was the latter.
So after Jace made it known that he was definitely grumpy, I thought I would cheer him up with his little green dinosaur that says, "Blah" when you squeeze its belly.

It was not quite the successful cheering up that I hoped it would be.

The cousins

Jace and his cousin Bowman are about four months apart. Which means when they are old enough to play together, they will probably be little stinkers. Right now, Bowman is enthralled with Jace and would like nothing more than to grab any part of Jace's body and squeeze. You can't really tell from the picture, but in the one with Jace sitting in his bouncy seat, Bowman is using every ounce of force in his body to try to get to Jace.

The baby blessing

We had Jace's baby blessing on July 20th. We were so blessed to have so much family here. Brice's parents were here from Kentucky and my parents were here from Texas, plus all of the family we have around here. . . turned out to be quite a crowd. I have to say I felt pretty popular. The blessing was really wonderful and Jace did not scream or cry or anything like that. In case you think he's wearing a dress think again. It's actually a gown. And it was the gown that Brice's grandfather was blessed in and Brice and all of his siblings were blessed in. A seventy year old gown. Pretty cool, huh?

Catching the smile

Today we were trying to capture a picture of Jace smiling. At first we were unsuccessful. But then. . .

Riding the "pony"

Brice insists that someday Jace will really be able to ride Andy. For those of you who know Andy, you might have your doubts about that. However, if Jace is anything like Brice and his brothers, I can see him someday as a determined three year old riding the crazy dog through the halls of our house.

And finally, he is asleep.
