Mr. Clayton is SO BIG

Clayton had a doctors appointment on Monday and he has gained 3 lbs! He is up to 7lbs 14oz! He also grew 3 inches and is 19 3/4 inches. He was such a good boy and only cried a little when he got his 3 shots. He was glad that Aunt Anna came with mommy to see his doctor. Aunt Anna was able to come on Friday and stay to babysit on Monday and Tuesday this week. Keely and Clayton loved having her babysit. Aunt Anna claims she is the only one that has not been squirted by Clayton. :) We wish she could stay, but she had to go back to work today and Clayton knew Uncle David missed her!
We had a nice cookout with friends this last weekend even though it was horribly hot out. Keely loved all the little kids who were her height. We did laugh at how different BBQs have become with children running around. We continue to stay busy and got some unexpected news last week from Justin's job. They announced they are shutting down his office at the end of the year. We don't know what this means for us right now, but we are sure it will all work out. We hope everyone is having a good week. Hugs and kisses!

Clayton laughs at mommy!

Hi mommy, what are you doing up there?

How can Clayton get more adorable each time a picture is posted? I don't get it. His smile lights up the entire internet!
We're sorry to hear about the Justin's job. We will continue to pray for all of you. Believe it or not, God has a plan and it's far better than you can imagine.

Clayton is so adorable!!! I can see a little of both of you in his face. That is so wonderful that Aunt Anna comes to take care of him. I am sure she is just like Molly & loves him like he is her own!!
