The latest stats...

Samuel went for his 12 month check-up today and here are the latest numbers: 30 1/2 inches in height (74th %ile), 20 lbs. 14 oz. (24th %ile), and his head is 18 1/4 inches around (50th %ile). The doc says he's doing well with his 7 teeth and his walking, and that he is growing as is to be expected. Here are some of mommy's favorite pictures of Samuel's birthday party. In the first, Samuel has finally gotten the hang of eating his cupcake. In the second, you see Samuel with 2 of his little friends, Kate and Emily.

Samuel's First Birthday

Today Samuel celebrated his first birthday. This morning at our church (Ambassador Church), we had a service where we dedicated Sameul to the Lord Jesus Christ. Then this afternoon we had a little party. One of my seminary friends, Luke Gleaves, celebrated his 24th birthday on August 10th as well. Samuel and Luke had a combined party and we had a number of fun guests. Samuel got to take a train ride, visit a petting zoo, and do a little walk through a creek.

How To Install A Home Security System In The South

1. Go to a second-hand store and buy a pair of men's used size 14-16 work boots.
2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns and Ammo Magazine.With Windows Live for mobile, your contacts travel with you.
3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads: "Hey Bubba, Me, Big Jim, Duke and Slim went for more ammunition. Back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls - they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part in it but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of 'em in the house.Better wait outside.'Cooter'"
