More baby Gus.

Posted in Uncategorized on March 30, 2009 by blog648

Yesterday we went and met the newest addition to our clan, baby Gus.

Here he is snoozing in his daddy’s arms.

Here’s daddy Chris.

Big sister Hattie was there, and she was her usual precocious self.

She thought it was important that we meet her new toy doggie.

She thought it would make a good picture if she turned the bin over her head and perched the toy doggie on top. This was totally spontaneous.

Grandpa got to hold the new baby…

…who was completely content to nap the whole time…

…while Daddy took “artsy photos” of baby feet.

Hattie had been confined to the little hospital room most of the day, and she found the hospital hallway increasingly more interesting as time went by.

It was a nice spring morning, just right for soccer.

Who wants it most?

These two boys always seemed to arrive at the ball at exactly the same time.

Who has the advantage? Who’s doing what to who?

Jacob got in the clear and made a long kick…

The New Guy

He arrived yesterday at 11:18 a.m. Mountain time.  His name is Gustave. It’s an ancestral name on my mother’s side.  We’ll call him little Gus.

Although he arrived a little early, once he got here, he apparently wasn’t all that thrilled. In this picture he looks a lot like his older sister, Hattie.

Smilie face courtesy of his father, I believe.

He was 22 inches and weighed 9 lbs. 5 oz.

He looks kind of beat up for a c-section delivery.

Here he is taking a siesta, something he will be doing a lot of, I imagine.

Welcome to the world, little Gus.

Youth Soccer

Jacob played soccer on Thursday. This was his first game ever, so he had a lot to learn, such as when the ball goes out of bounds, it’s out of play.  Hey, who knew?

Let’s see, kick the ball and run after it. Heck, this game is easy!

jacobsoccer1-015-copy

I’ll get it!

jacobsoccer1-022-copy

Here we go!

jacobsoccer1-023-copy

Oh, sorry, am I in your way?

jacobsoccer1-027-copy

Hey, it’s my turn to kick the ball!

jacobsoccer1-030-copy

Okay, let’s score!

Kickoff time!
