Just hanging out in my swing. Can someone please get me the remote?
Mom has been working really hard at getting me to smile - sometimes I cooperate.
I can sleep just about anywhere and any time.
This is my new big toy except I have no idea how to use it. My feet don't touch the bottom and my arms don't even reach the toys. I think mom just likes to spin me around and laugh at me.
Just a note to all my fans: I'm almost 2 months old now. I weigh 11 pounds and 7 ounces. I'm 21 inches long. And I only cried a little when I got my shots...ok...I cried a lot, with a little screaming.

Tummy time is not Rebecca's favorite time of the day, but I love to see how strong she is getting and how much she can turn and hold her head up. She likes to be on her boppy pillow more than just flat on the floor. What beautiful eyes!

The main event for the weekend was Rebecca's baptism at our church on Sunday night. My dad, who is a minister and also baptized me, was able to baptize Rebecca. It was a significant family time, but more importantly a time to signify that Rebecca is a member of God's covenant and one of his children.The baptismal gown that Rebecca is wearing was made by my dad's grandmother. It is 61 years old, wore by my father and myself. Rebecca is 15th child to wear it. What an amazing family tradition to show that our God is a God to us and our children after us and throughout all generations.
The Pontier family (except for Rachel of course).The De Vries family.

Do you agree with this English proverb?
-The absent are always wrong.-
To me it depends much on the situation. At first I agreed with it completely thinking that if you don't appear at a meeting to voice your opinion then you are choosing to keep quiet and allow others to be right. Though I also believe in the saying, "it is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" Sammuel Clemmens (Mark Twain).
What do you think?
