Earnest's New Friend

One week ago, our family took a happy stroller walk over to the hospital to visit good friends of ours who had just had a baby.  The afternoon sunshine paired well with the feelings in the hospital room.  My dear friend was now a mama!  She was glowing.  Nick was smiling ear to ear.  And their new little guy was content taking it all in.  He is such a handsome fellow!
Meet Isaac Daniel Stromwall:
Mom, Dad, and Baby are all doing great!  I love this next picture.  So much joy!
Earnest really enjoyed meeting his new friend.
Congrats again Stromwalls!  God bless your new family!  May His grace and joy abound in this new season of life!

seven months

Hello!  I wanted to tell you about my life lately.  
I'm getting getting to be a big boy, literally.  At my last doctor appointment mama and I were informed that I am in the 97th percentile for height and head circumference!  Papa says it's because I've got a lot of brains in there :).  I'm in the 80th percentile for weight.  I sure like to eat.  All sorts of things these days.  I'm eating two meals a day.  I've tried avocados, oatmeal, rice cereal, sweet potatoes, bananas, peas, and pears.  I really like avocados and sweet potatoes!  

Here are a few other things I like:

 I love being outdoors.  Mama has been thankful for the mild weather this winter.  
She bundles me all up and we go for walks.

 I still prefer to take naps on the big boy bed.  
Though mom and pop are trying to get me to take more naps in my crib.
 Speaking of naps, I don't really prefer those either.  
 My favorite naps are taken next to papa.
 I love it when he comes home!    
I know it's time to wrestle then!

 I really like my toes.  They taste pretty good.
 I like to pose for pictures too.
 I love to read books.
 Mama and Daddy dedicated me to God at church this month.  
They always tell me stories and sing songs about Jesus.  
They pray that I will love Him with my whole heart!

One of my favorite things is spending time with my family.  
I love spending time with my grandparents (mom forgot to snap a photo of me with them)!  
These are photos of my great-grandparents; they came to visit me last weekend!
Thanks for listening to my favorite things!
