More Visits

This is Casen's buddy Jaye. Jaye is going to help Daddy teach Casen how to pitch right-handed and left-handed so Casen can make Daddy lots of money. Jaye's comfort level with baby-holding is at about the same level as Kari's comfort-level with public speaking. But he did a great job.

This are some of our good friends from Plano. They're not our only good friends from Plano, but they're a few of our good friends Jason and Joy with their son Carsten. They made the long haul from Plano to see their new buddy, and Carsten's new buddy Casen.

Carsten was fairly impressed with Casen. Not as impressed as he was with Sutton and her tennis ball, but it was clear that Carsten and Casen will have lots of fun times together.

Millie was not impressed with our picture from yesterday. She won't be impressed with this picture of her either, but you need to know how hard she has worked since she's been here. Kari and I could not have done this thing without her help. The above picture is her and Kari's sister Sara last night cooking dinner. Millie may not break a hip taking pictures of Casen, but she might break her back working so hard while she's here. She has cooked, cleaned, and run errands the whole time she's been here. She even took Sutton for a 4-mile walk yesterday morning. She's a very good mother, mother-in-law, and Millie.

Gratuitous cute photograph for Big Mama's brag book.

I actually got halfway through posting this entry when some other friends showed up. I'll have pictures of them in the morning sometime.

It's a shame I (Chris) am going to have to go back to work tomorrow. It's too bad I can't make any money just taking cute pictures of my kid.

Chris and Kari,
I found your blog from Chris posting on ours! I had no idea that you all just had a baby! Congratulations! How awesome...he is so cute and I love the name! I will keep watching your blog...

Also, just want you to know that I think about you all often. You may not remember but about 4 years ago our oldest son was sent to Dallas for a stomach surgery...while we were there you all called us. It meant so much to us to know that people were praying and you were willing to help out, with anything. I have always remembered that...and it blessed us! So, I just wanted to remind you of what I think of when I think of you all....
