Baby Charba's Photo Debut!

Our littlest family member has been officially and pictorially documented! What a doll.
All is well with Momma and Baby--and the due date remains December 29, 2007. Just like big brother, Charba 2.0 was seen kicking already and had a strong and steady heartbeat!

We'd love the tax credit that an '07 birthday would grant us, though Henry's sluggish arrival may indicate that an '08 birthday is more likely :)

P.S. That is not an ear, just a well placed shadow.

Fun in the garden

I had the best peach today. It was juicy, it was tasty...ahhh. Yum. And I enjoyed it all the more because it came from our very own peach tree!

Growing things, from vegetables to flowers, is such a rewarding process. Watching the first sprout push up through the warm ground. Then being awed yet again by how quickly the sprout develops into a mature plant.

To think that our lovely yellow squash all came from those tiny tiny seeds. Wow.

We are still looking forward to Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes, and *maybe* a potato or two!
The roses and lillies have been busy too--a dainty 5 petaled white rose (cliffs of dover?) and pretty little pink rose (have no clue!,) and the two originals--the long stem white and the red climber.
