"The grace of God means something like: Here is your life.  You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you.  Here is the world.  Beautiful and terrible things will happen.  Don't be afraid.  I am with you.  Nothing can ever separate us." - Frederick Buechner

{This post is for you, Harriet!  I look forward to the day when I can see you and John while in Rogers to visit Jenny, Matt and Sawyer!}

My little sister pointed out to me that not everyone is (or wants to be) on Facebook.  I know this, but I keep forgetting to post pics and stories on my blog!  Here are his "month" pictures.  Can you believe that he is 5-months old already?  We have a hard time believing it!  He is definitely growing and learning new things everyday.  He still loves the "concerned" look a lot, but he is a happy (see below), easy-going little boy.  He is so active and all over the place now, squirming, moving and (we think) trying to crawl some.  His mommy didn't crawl much, but his dad did (and walked at 9-months...yikes!).  I did not walk until I was 17-months old.  Yep.  And I still turned out alright. :)  I think somewhere between 9-months and 17-months would be nice!

Enjoy the pictures and know that I am going to try to do better about posting here, too.  That way I can tell stories with the photos.  We have plenty of those (stories and photos).  We are having his professional pictures done next week, so...perhaps some previews of those?!

5 Months Old!

This post is for you, Harriet!  I apologize for the delay in posting pictures (or anything!) to my blog lately.  I know that not everyone is (or wants to be) on Facebook and I need to be more faithful about posting here, too.  John Reynolds is growing so fast...too fast!  He continues to be a delightful, healthy, happy and content baby!  We love him so much and feel blessed to be his parents.  He is learning new things everyday and teaching his Mom and Dad a thing or two about what it means to love.  Also, he is a lot of fun!!
