Ivy is 6 weeks old, Time for a bath

Ivy is six weeks old today! She is quite the active little girl and loves to play with Mick and Gage, chew on Brad's shoes, play with toys and run all over the house. She gets very lonely at night and still wakes us up occasionally at 4 am for some food and or comfort. WOW! it is like having another baby but we are both enjoying her thoroughly.

I write this blog with tears in my eyes but they are tears of happiness and sadness mixed together. Early this morning my father, Preston Howard Burdette peacefully left this world and we celebrate his homecoming with Jesus. The family has been together laughing and crying and sharing memories of a man who has left a legacy . He leaves behind his wife of 65 years, his 5 children, 16 grandchildren (he is now with his granddaughter Kelsey) and 21 great-grandchildren with at least 4 more to be born this year.
My father loved each and every one of us and shared his love of Jesus with us and built a family that also loves the Lord.
Job well done DAD. I love you and I cherish my memories of you.

Valentine IVY

Ivy is 4 weeks and 3 days and is eating food but still likes an occasional bottle. She loves to play with Uncle Gage and Mick and of course Brad.. Ivy is letting us get six hours of sleep now and is feeding every 4-5 hours during the day. So, just like parents, we celebrate her accomplishments and any sleep we can get! I couldn't resist taking pictures of her with this little Valentine Bee that sings and dances to the song "Sugar Sugar". She was so amazed with this toy but as you can see she eventually played with it
