  • Testing dads pain tolerance levels during chest hair removal sessions.

  • Aerobics Richard Simmons would be proud of.
  • Perfecting manipulative facial expressions. (Flashed that smile at the bishop today. Smooth little lass.)

Introducing our progeny

Harrell brood #1 entered the world Oct 15th, 2am. 8 lbs. 5 oz. and a total doll.

Already has dad wrapped around her dainty fingers.

Here she is in her first ten minutes home, bundled up by dad in two blankets, a towel and stuck in bed with us. A trend that needed to be nipped in the bud. Baby's crying - place baby in bed with us - we all sleep peacefully for 15 minutes - rinse - repeat. I think it was harder breaking Dave of this habit than it would have been for her. Once she figures that one out there's no hope for us when she starts walking.
