velvety richness

Photobucket

There are no words to describe the wonderful richness we’re enjoying in little Truxton. Every single angle presents a wonderful surprise; either ridiculous uselessness (those bitty little legs, for example), unimaginable softness (that downy baby hair) or the incredible velvet of those sweet fluffy cheeks. And the sweet baby smell is out of this world.

contentedness …

Reflecting on the miracle that God gave us participation in, enjoying our growing little family which suddenly seems so much more complete, and wondering how we ever did without any of these amazing creatures.

The evening of our first full day home. Such cozy sweetness! It soon became this…

The incredible sweetness of sleeping babies is pretty hard to beat! I mean, check out all the little details…

Pure bliss, I tell you.

Meet The Boy

Truxton Stuart was born on February 23rd at 12:49pm, to a very adoring family…

He weighed in at an even eight pounds of peach fuzz and foam rubber, and measured 19 3/4″ long.

We’re all doing well, and recovering nicely, but I probably won’t be all that regular in my posting here (other than a few residual posts which I had already prepared before his birth), for a few days at least.

a hat from Aunt Anna

We all really love this hat. I think Aunt Anna made it with Mizzou colors in mind, but the girls saw the bumble bee potential right away.

Sophie’s hippo seems to have a burning desire to wear the hat, if Sophie is to be believed.

I have decided that hats are my favorite article of clothing for any baby. The rest can be optional, as long as there’s a great hat in the mix.
