Jonah Decorates our Christmas Tree

We decided to put up our Christmas tree early this year. It's one of those cheap artificial trees and we've had it for many years. (One year we had some mice make a nest in it.) After got it unfolded and fluffed up, without any prompting, Jonah started to "decorate" it. We aren't sure where he got the idea, because he was too young to do it last year.

He didn't bother with the actual Christmas tree decorations, though. Instead, he just found anything that was laying around on the floor and put it on the tree. Items included: half a plastic Easter egg, Shanna's scrunchy, a nerf football, a plastic candy cane, some dirty socks, a bib, a keychain, and a small beach ball.

Announcing Elisabeth Rose Davis

We want to joyfully announce the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Elisabeth Rose Davis. She was born at 1:24 PM on July 16 2008. She weighted 8 lbs 12.3 oz. She and her mother both did great and are recovering nicely. You can see all of our photos on flickr. Here are a few samples:

It's A Girl!

This week, on Shanna's birthday we had our scheduled ultrasound for our new baby. We are very happy to announce that it is a healthy baby girl. I originally wanted to wait until the baby was born to find out the sex, but it was Shanna's birthday and for months now she has been telling me about these cute little girl outfits that she really wants to buy but can't because she didn't know if it was a girl. So now we know and she can start picking out Jonah's sister's wardrobe. :)

Here are the ultrasound photos. This one is a profile of her face. She has one hand up against her eye:

In this one her face is turning towards the camera:

And here is the money shot (don't ask me how they can tell):
