Weekends are for pictures! 3-22-08

Check back later tonight when I announce the winner of the $100 Walmart gift card!



For now, some photo fun.




Nate had his first shower this week. It started out like this...


























But soon he warmed up . "Are you sure it's ok dad?"






























"HA! dad you goofball"
























"oh no! Mom's got the camera!"































Ok I'll smile for your picture. Then will you let us bathe in peace?































I couldn't resist.... Lookit those cottage cheese buns






























Hailey took this pic from her camera and wanted me to post it hehe




"my diaper is cuter than yours"


































On Sunday, which was Alex's 2nd angel-versary we went to the cemetary. I only got a couple shots because for some mysterious reason (ghosties?) my camera batter drained before my eyes.... ooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooo (my lame attempt at spooky music)





Alex's site. The fun cloth flowers everwhere have a special meaning to us as well. One day while Alex was in the hospital a family who's child had died of a heart defect a year before brought one of these flowers to all the children in PICU with heart problems. I have the one they gave us on my headboard with Alex's things but every few months we buy more and update the ones at his site to keep it bright and happy. Nathan has some on his crib as well.





































A close-up of his stone





























Tigger. Tigger is very special because every Thursday night at the Ronald Mcdonald house we would play Bingo. It was a huge deal and the whole house showed up for it. One particular Thursday they had a big stuffed Eeyore and this Tigger. One of Hailey's little friends, Autumn won them both and knowing that we had hoped top win Tigger for Alex, was kind enough to give him her prize. Tigger has been at the cemetary since day one, watching over Alex much as he watched over him in his hospital bed.
