Mary took this picture on my phone camera. I love it! He was around 8 weeks.Another favorite! He has become a sweet, content baby lately. He was a bit fussy his first month or so. It is so sweet to watch him kick and kick, smile so brightly, and laugh out loud! I just love to watch him grow and change, even while it makes me sad to see my newborn disappear.

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully,
do all bravely,
await occasions, hurry never.
In a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.

Sweet baby boy at 6 weeks old. He is a marvelous sleeper at night, but not such a great napper. More of a cat napper. Ugg. But we are working on it! At least I am well rested to deal with it, right?!He was 12 # 14 oz at 6 weeks. Just starting to smile in response to us. It has been hard to capture in pictures though. So sweet!
Just to prove that he does smile :-) 6 weeks old
