Week 7


Clark is 7 weeks old and already has a girlfriend. He is not shy about his feelings for her and has been smitten since he was about 2 weeks old. When ever he catches a glimpse of her he flashes his gummy little grin and it is impossible to break his eyes away from her. Clark's Dream Boat is tan, exotic, whisper quiet and runs often. I can see the allure.

Ain't she a 'beaut?

This weekend was the first weekend since there was ice covering the ground that we didn't go to Lowes or have a project to tackle. Saturday we sat around looking at eachother all day--but how cute is this face to look at?

By Sunday we were tired of each other's faces so we piled into the car, got a dozen donuts and stopped by Sherwin Williams 40% off sale. We ate 6 of the donuts in the parking lot and with a sugar induced buzz decided that it was a good day to paint the guest bedroom. The 40% off color of choice was Coran Blue. Of course Matt chose the specific hue, it is his special talent. The newly remodeled Williams' Bed and Breakfast is open for visitors-- so book now. However, don't expect any donuts because we polished off the remaining 6 for dinner.

This week I also realized that there are a million Clark photos (of course!)

There are also a quarter of a million Matt and Clark photos (to be expected).

But there are no photos of me and Clark. Zero. None. Not one since the day of his birth. I didn't want him to grow up and think that I left the country while he was an infant so I put the camera on auto mode, placed it on the highest surface we had--the breakfast bar-- and took Clark and my first photo together. Ignore the mess, the slightly open pantry door and what looks like a lazy eye. Focus on how Clark really feels about having his picture taken with me. Lesson learned, I belong behind the camera capturing life's moments.

Have a good week,
