Phoebe just found some new toys. The best part is that they are very hard to lose. So they are ready to play at any time.

Phoebe's Hair

Since then she has tried to emulate her grandfathers and now only has a few hairs hanging on.

We still think she's pretty cute.

Five Generations

We were lucky enough to take a five generation picture with my Great-Grandma Casper, Grandma Barnett, Dad, Me, and Phoebe. I am so fortunate to be descended from such wonderful strong people and will be forever blessed by the lives that they have led. I sincerely hope that Phoebe will understand where she comes from and what her roots are.

Just one of those faces

We used Sterling's employee discount to get a new laptop with the most recent iPhoto on it. iPhoto has an interesting facial recognition feature on it. It can search your photos to find faces and then tries to identify who they belong to.

Sometimes, amusingly it catches pictures on the wall.

or statues

It does okay at putting names to faces for most people except for one person

Hmmm, I must just have one of those faces....

But, the most mysterious part of the face recognition feature comes when it recognizes a face in pictures like this...

Can you see it?

Phoebe Smiles on Video

We got our new camcorder in the mail today and we filmed something we thought you might want to see.

In an attempt to break Phoebe of her nocturnal ways, we have initiated Project Keep-Phoebe-Awake in the evenings. One of our key weapons in the endeavor is the nightly bath. So far it's been a moderate success, and we hope to see better results and fewer sleepy mornings soon.

Phoebe seems to love baths in the bathroom sink. And by love, we mean looks content and doesn't scream. Clearly love in one-month-old.

Sunday Best

So Katie informs me that it's not cool to post a bajillion pictures in a single blog post. So here is a collage.

We took Phoebe to church for the first time this week. She looked adorable in the cardigan her granny made for her.

More Cuteness

So I've figured out how to make our pictures taken at night not turn out yellow. It's just a quick color balance touch up in iPhoto. The color is still a little bit off but it is way better.

Happy St Patty's Day

From our little leprechaun.

I Know. I just got out of the shower and Katie didn't tell me I had crazy hair.

I think this is our first honest to goodness smile!

Don't worry. I didn't stop taking pictures

I just didn't have as much time to post them after I started going back to work/school full time. Here are some of the best from the last week plus some earlier ones.
