Rebekah and the Bear (5/27/09)



Be watching out for a post this weekend with a chronicle of our journeys these past two weeks! Rebekah keeps growing length-wise, and we'll soon get her weight checked again. She was an awesome traveler as we drove over 2000 miles last week.

Rebekah (and Brookelyn) and the Bear-DOUBLE EDITION

Because of the extensive traveling of the past two weeks, one broken camera, and the laziness of James, we're delayed in publishing this double edition of Rebekah and the Bear. The pictures with the lion and the bear are from May 13, and the others were taken the day of Rebekah's baby dedication at church, May 17 (the bear was too big to bring on our trip to OK, so we had to take the pics 3 days early). To add perspective, the lion was added and we also wanted to show the bear with Rebekah's friend Brookelyn, who will be 2 years old next month.


Brookelyn was determined to carry the bear around the apartment, despite its enormity.


This is Brookelyn's "mean" face.

Test Drive

Maybe we're unnecessarily exposing our baby to the public, with its mess of bird flu and swine flu and uv rays and all the other foreign substances. Rebekah went shopping at Target with her mother, aunt, and granny before she was a week old. Rarely a day goes by Rebekah isn't at Wal-Mart, church, Kristie's or James' workplace, or the zoo. But prior to last weekend, we'd only traveled the 1:15 to Waveland. With the travels coming up starting this weekend, we attempted the 4-hour trip to Destin for Kristie's cousin's wedding.

First 3 Hours of the Trip


Last 1/2 Hour of the Trip

The ride back was much less uneventful, but this trip was just a warm-up for the 8-hour drive to Tennessee and 11-hour trip to Oklahoma scheduled for later. We could just leave Rebekah at home, were she not the primary reason for the trips. Anyone want to babysit?

Rebekah and the Bear (5/6/09)

UPDATE: REBEKAH WEIGHED IN AT 8 LBS., 3 1/2 OZ., AND 22 3/4 INCHES. SHE GAINED 7.5 OZ IN A WEEK.




Rebekah has an appointment tomorrow to see how fat she's gotten, or not. We're hoping for 8 pounds. We've decided 9 weeks is a little too young for her to be worrying about her figure, so we've been trying to shove the food in her.
