Naked Time!

Every baby book I've read on the topic of sleeping has enforced one common principle - follow a nightly routine. Our nightly routine consists of the following: dinner, jumperoo, bath and then most importantly NAKED TIME! Naked time means letting Charlie play for a half hour or so completely sans clothing and boy does he love it! When Charlie is naked he squels and shrieks with utter glee! Hopefully he will grow out of this phase when it's not so cute anymore! But for now - we'll keep it part of the routine!
Look at those little butt cheeks!

Jesus Loves Me!

Charlie William was baptized on Sunday September 27, 2009 at Shady Grove United Methodist Church by our own Pastor David Atkins! It was a short but lovely ceremony that was concluded with the congregation serenading Charlie with "Jesus Loves Me." Everyone including the Bauckman, Smith, Newman and Gardner clan came down to witness the event and then afterwards everyone joined us back at the house for mimosas and quiche! After the crowd left we took Billie and Charlie to the park for an afternoon stroll and Charlie's first swinging session! Oh what a lovely Sunday it was! God is good!
