Wiliam Smiling (or Fun With Photoshop)

Eileen snapped this great photo of William smiling under the dogwood tree at her mom's house with her cell phone. The only problem was that she got a clip of her finger on the bottom of the picture -- but it was nothing that a little trick with Photoshop couldn't take care of. Below is the original.

God's Faithfulness to All Generations

William was baptized
at Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church
on April 20, 2008

1. Do you acknowledge your child’s need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, and the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit?

2. Do you claim God’s covenant promises in his behalf, and do you look in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ for his salvation, as you do for your own?

3. Do you now unreservedly dedicate your child to God, and promise, in humble reliance upon divine grace, that you will endeavor to set before him a godly example, that you will pray with and for him, that you will teach him the doctrines of our holy religion, and that you will strive, by all the means of God’s appointment, to bring him up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?

William Likes to Play

William has discovered the joy of playing! He likes to kick and wave his arms and smile. Of all the pictures we took in this series -- only this one was clear. William was moving so fast that all the other pictures are very blurred. What this picture does not capture is the sound of his little chimes as he kicks furiously. Playtime has now become a regular part of William's day.

William and a Visit from Nana

Nana bought this cozy outfit for William to wear home from The Birth Center -- but it was too big. He wore it for his first visitors. Now it has been packed away because it is too small. We had to unsnap the bottom so that he could wear it for one last picture. O, how fast he has grown!

William Discovers a Friend

The noise in background is not a technical glitch - William is vigorously kicking his feet on the crackly area of his play mat. His little coos were too cute to delete the sound.

William's Video Debut

This is our first attempt at video editing, so we look a little squashed. All of you IU ladies understand about squashed pictures! Hopefully we will figure it out and have more to come.
