This morning I got Josiah up and dressed in his UK clothes. He wanted to wear this today since Kentucky plays tonight. I'm starting to think that blue is his favorite color.

Daddy's cute recruit

My mom and dad gave Josiah this outfit. If you can't read it the shirt is says "Daddy's cute recruit". About 3 weeks ago this outfit swallowed him. Now it fits great and probably won't fit in another week or two.

Smiling a little bit

I was able to get Josiah to smile a little in this first picture. This was sometime last week.

Nathanael David Oakes

This is Nathanael David Oakes. Ashley and Jason brought Nathanael over a few days ago. He is beginning to smile on purpose over the past couple of weeks. He is really cute. I think he weighed 12 pounds as of last week and he is 8 weeks old.

New pictures of Josiah

These pictures are from a couple of weeks ago. He hasn't learned to smile consistently. Most of his facial expressions look like the second picture. I think he is cute anyway.

Josiah and Nathanael

Josiah and his cousin Nathanael were hanging out on the play mat a couple of days ago. They seem to get along pretty well.

Josiah and Daddy!

Melissa took a picture of Josiah and I hanging out on the bed. We were having a staring contest.

I"m sure your thinking this is another picture of Josiah but you would be wrong. This is me when I was around the same age. I think it is safe to say that he looks a little bit like me.

Josiah lookin cute!

Melissa took these pictures today of Josiah. He looks really cute even if it is a UofL hat on his head.
Melissa had some tummy time with Josiah yesterday while I was gone to work. His little neck is getting stronger. He is also beginning to pick up some weight. He weighed 7 pounds and 9 ounces as of yesterday. That is a 15 ounce gain in 5 days.

The sleeping beauties

Flip, Lollipop, and Josiah all decided to take a nap the other day. I think the cats sleep just as much as Josiah these days. Life is tough.

Flip and Kaden Gaither

I was doing some work on the computer and Flip decided to hop up in the chair and peek his head around the corner to keep and eye on me.
The other night the Chris, Katie, and Kaden Gaither came over to our house. Kaden thought Flips bed looked comfortable so he decided to make it his for a little while. Flip is behind him watching his every move.

Bath time

We gave Josiah a bath the other day. He is beginning to get use to the water. I think the key is making sure the water is good and warm. He hates the cold water.

Granddaddy and Mexican food

A few days ago we went to Louisville to eat with Melissa's Granddaddy (Rusty Carpenter). He really enjoys holding Josiah. We took Josiah to his first Mexican restaurant that night.
