A sleeping baby

I do plan to eventually blog more frequently, but it seems the days go by so fast and I still have so much to do that blogging is not very high on the list.

Tonight was our first time out alone - just me and Clayton. The "no driving" restriction has been lifted (hooray!) and so we went to church tonight (Aaron has class on Wednesday nights) and then made a quick Wal-Mart stop. We both survived. As long as I can get to church and Wal-Mart, I should be good to go. :-)

I did a few more pictures today of Clayton, so I'm posting one of my favorites. He'll be 3 weeks old tomorrow and I really do think he has grown (I know, I know - babies don't usually shrink, but I really do think he looks different already). :-)

2 weeks today

Wow - it's hard to believe Clayton is 2 weeks old today! I took his picture today (with Aaron's wonderful help). I haven't sorted through all of them yet, but I thought this one was so funny and really cute!

Home at Last

Wow - we are loving having a new little Herring in the house. Clayton is just the best!

We enjoyed having several hospital visitors that welcomed Clayton into the world.

The proud Uncle Cameron

Clayton meeting Aunt Vicki and cousin Camen for the fist time.

Aaron's parents - meeting their 1st grandchild.

My mother - meeting her 10th grandchild.

Packed up and ready to leave the hospital.
We brought him home late Sunday afternoon.

His first night at home in the Moses Basket. Clayton slept really good - Aaron and I did not since we kept checking on him. :-)

We took him to his first pediatrician visit yesterday and the doctor said all is well - we are so blessed and grateful for a healthy little boy.

My mother gave him his first bath.

He didn't seem to mind a bath at all.

I just love hooded towels!

Click here to view his hospital picture. It's hard to believe he will be a week old tomorrow.

Saying Goodbye to GBS

Yesterday was a sad day for me as it was my last day of work at GBS. (Ironically, I had to give a talk in chapel about being positive and happy - so maybe I was "preaching" to myself.)

I enjoyed working at GBS and with the great people there so much. For the last five years I was very privileged to work for and learn from President Avery. I will certainly miss everyone, but of course I'm excited about what's to come as well. My due date is tomorrow, but they will let me go a week over if nothing happens by then. We shall see.

Here's a few "saying goodbye" pictures... I only cried a little (OK - make that a lot).

The ones I worked closely with: Maria Stetler, Pres. Avery, and Mandy Buckland...

. . . and my "across the hall" friend, Teresa Cravens.

A beautiful album for a beautiful couple!

Wow! I absolutely love the wedding album for Jennifer & Wesley Gray's wedding. It arrived last week and I shipped it right to them. Each image below (except the first and last) is a double spread page in their album. I was so happy with the design of the pages and just wanted to share. Their wedding was so much fun to photograph!
