Herring #4

One more picture before heading off to the hospital.

And she has arrived!
Addyson Diane Herring, 7 lbs, 13 oz, 20 inches long.

Baby girl makes Herring #4!

Couldn't be happier!

Announcing her arrival!

Check out all that hair!!

At home - content on the couch!

The video clip below is Clayton's reaction when we first came home from the hospital. He was so fascinated with Addyson and kept laughing and wanting to touch her. I think I'm going to have my hands full with these two! :-) (Disregard the beeping - it was the timer on the stove.)

The Debut of Baby Jesus

Clayton made his debut on stage last night as Baby Jesus at the Aldersgate Christian Academy (GBS) Christmas program. I had no idea how he would behave, but he actually did really well. I think he was in awe of everything he was seeing. Unfortunately, I couldn't see him, because I was behind the stage so I could take him in between times when he didn't need to be out there. But, Aaron kept me updated by texts and of course I could hear.

There were two really funny moments. One line from an actor said, "Look Mary, Baby Jesus is sleepy." However, at that time he was flailing his arms and legs and having a good time. Not at all sleepy! :-) The second time was when an actor said, "And now, Herod wants to kill him!" As soon as she got the words out of her mouth, Clayton pointed right at her and started crying hard! The timing couldn't have been better. And the crowed roared with laughter. :-)

I was so relieved that he did good and was also glad when it was over.

Running off some steam downstairs before it starts.

Poor Mary had her hands full, but she did such a good job with him. I think he was wanting down here. :-)

Taking a picture after the program of the actors.

The actors with the director, Kristin Foster. Clayton spotted me taking a picture, thus the "I'm done with all this" face.

I wanted to get a close up picture of Clayton with Mary, but, he was DONE!!

I think he was ready to see me again.

One more picture before we change his clothes.

Baby Time

We had such a good time in Missouri for Thanksgiving! One of the fun things I got to do was take pictures of everybody. I won't post the family ones since several are using them for Christmas cards, but here are a few additional fun shots we did just for kicks.

The four partners in crime: Elijah (Dana/Phil's), Karson (Mark/Jana's), Clayton (ours), and Emme (Jeff/Vicki's).

Just getting all the babies in the same picture was an experience in itself!

And now Tyson joins in on the fun
(Kendall & Leanna's new baby at 4 weeks 0ld).

The KKK: Kaley, Khara, and Kelsey! :-)
