Visit With Uncle Richard

Jim's Uncle Richard was in town this weekend and asked to come visit. We have not seen him since Jim's grandmother passed away (I think almost 3 years ago). So it was great to visit with him. He surprised us with a few gifts for Joshua (a cute little moose outfit that's perfect for the winter) and an activity mat for Joshua to play on (in a couple of months).
Uncle Rich is an artist and he used his artistic eye to make this photo for us of Joshua.

And as things go in this house, Joshua was incredibly cranky ALL DAY LONG, he wouldn't eat well, and wouldn't sleep well. I just knew that we were going to have one miserable little boy during our visit. However, as soon as I handed Joshua over to Uncle Rich, the next thing I knew he was sound asleep. Uncle Rich has the magic touch apparently. Joshua slept the whole time he was in Uncle Rich's arms and when it was time to sit down for dinner, I put him in his crib and he slept until it was time to eat again... He was like a whole different baby. Uncle Rich even commented that I might be lying about Joshua being cranky!

We are looking forward to more visits with the aunts and uncles.

Kids always make liars out of the Momma's and Daddy's. Oh yeah and they are always better behaved for other people than they are with the parents!

I am so thankful for how well things are going with your little blessing and I hope the Lord will continue to bless you all with much happiness!
