1st Baths


Here are pictures of Londyn and Jackson's 1st baths at home in the sink! Londyn was a lot smaller than Jackson. And he's either more jaundiced or just darker complected. But they both started off with about the same amount and color of hair. I can't believe that's Londyn- she has grown up and changed so much! Time flies....

Lovin Baby Brother

So Londyn loves her new baby brother. If he's not in the room with us she says, "where's Jackson?" She loves to hold him and when she wakes up in the morning she asks me to lay him next to her while she drinks her milk. He's a pretty chill baby and doesn't seem to mind too much when she holds him....or pokes him....or screams... I feel pretty lucky to have 2 beautiful children!

Can't believe he's a week old already. I'm so lucky! He is such a good baby.

Thank you

The last few days have given me time to reflect on where my life is at, and the people and relationships that have molded me. I feel that a few words of gratitude are in order:

First, to Linzy. You are my shining light and I love you. I am amazed at your strength and resilience. I am humbled by your ability to maintain a soft touch while juggling so many things at once. Your example, your kindness and your love have made me a man that I could never have been on my own.

Bishop Bowen, thank you for your example of kindness, leadership, spirituality and gospel knowledge. I will always cherish the memories of coming together to try and understand what needed to be done, and what was the best way to do it.

Ryan. Your example of quiet service has blessed my life in so many ways. Your gifts are many and varied, and I am awestruck at your ability to serve and give without the need for fanfare or gratitude.

Thank you to everyone who has made us to feel welcome in this neighborhood and ward. As the events play out over the next few months, I cannot help but think about how much we will miss you. I have learned so much from so many people, and in learning, have realized that I know very little at all. We love you, and we will miss you.

It's baby time

Finally! I'm being induced tomorrow! Hopefully all will go well and I won't end up with another C-section!
