Malcolm's First Bath

Malcolm had a busy morning: peeing all over himself and then spitting up in such a way that he filled his ears, his hair, and his neck creases with curdled milk...  It was time for a bath.  He'd had his first, first bath in the hospital, but we'd only been washing him with a wipe since he got home since his umbilical cord was still attached, and then he was circumcised.  

He wasn't too sure about this whole "bath" idea -- he doesn't like to be naked -- but he quickly warmed up to it! 

No idea what's coming next...

My little helper there, prepping the sink. 

Mama, I do NOT like this....not one bit. 

Hm...Okay, maybe this isn't SO bad.  
Um, mom? Are you SURE it's a good idea to let her help? 

All fresh and clean! 

Put me back in the bath, woman!

Happy 90th, Grandma Nancy!

Isaac's grandma Nancy just turned the big 9-0, and that merits celebration!!  She is an amazing, loving, Jesus-loving, caring woman with an infectious smile and a generous heart.  The turnout and speeches given were a testament to that.  Her kids rose up to call her 'blessed', her grandkids love her, her great-granddaughter told her "Happy Bir-day, GG -- I yuff you!" (into the microphone no less! Maybe she got some of her GG's gregariousness because mama and daddy are NOT microphone people!)

Here are just a few of the pictures taken:

What a time for Lucy to break out a new "cheese" face! 

Raising a glass to honor Grandma Nancy:

Isn't she just the cutest?! We feel pretty blessed that she's ours! 

We missed the "it's going to be outdoors" memo -- oops! 

Four generations of McPhees!

The bookend McPhees! 

Celebrating tuckered out this dapper dude!
