A Month Already?????

Its the same with all parents- you blink and all of the sudden you kid is growing up and time is flying. No exception here. Jolie is already one month old. That went quick. Experience teaches me that the next 18 years will go quickly as well.

As you might expect, old Dad had to take a few photos yesterday. Here is a link to a gallery containing some of the best of the bunch:

I still need to learn some skin retouching skills- that will improve things a bit. But I think there are a few good ones.

Thanks for coming along...

Jolie's First Bath

So last night was bath time for the first time. We might have gone a little nuts on the photos. Oh well... Christian served as photographer as I was helping with the bath. Click on any image to see a larger version. Enjoy!

Joile and her Family

When you get to be Jolie's age, (9 days), you begin to look back and to value those things that really mean the most. Like family. And I have to say that Jolie has a pretty darn cool family. And they have been gathering around to welcome her home. So she thought it would be a good idea if some of you out there got to see her family. And with that, here we go!

Jolie and her Mommy (oh, and Brinkley)

Joile and her Daddy

Jolie and big sister Sarah

Jolie and big brother Christian

Jolie and Grandma Jill (Grandpa Don had to stay in Florida)

Jolie and Grandma Arvin

Jolie and Grandpa Arvin

Jolie and Megan (She goes with Christian and counts as family)

We have some other family photos to collect- Jolie and Grandpa Don, Jolie and Corey (Sarah's man), Jolie and Chris, Noreen, Emily and Abby, (The Bloomington Arvins), Jolie and Jeff, Carol, and Natalie, (The Bellingham, Washington Arvins) and other extended family members.

But we should have time to collect some of those.

Oh. And Brinkley gets his moment in the spotlight.

Thanks for coming along...
