Visit to Atlanta

The past few weeks Brian has been very busy traveling all over the country interviewing for fellowships. He has been everywhere from Portland to Minneapolis to Baltimore, and he's only half-way through! I was very excited to be able to travel with him to Atlanta when he interviewed at Emory and visit with friends. He actually flew to Philadelphia and back for another interview while I stayed there. Here are some of the highlights from our trip.

Matthew and Caleb meeting for the first time. About 10 seconds later Caleb tried to climb in the car seat with Matthew!

Caleb and I are best friends :o)

Since Jennifer, Katie and I are all huge football fans, we had to put the babies in their gear and take a picture of all of them! Of course we all know who looks the cutest (Go Gators!)

Dustin and Casey got to meet Matthew also. Dustin enjoyed hanging out with Matthew and making him laugh.

Matthew's Baptism

One of the things that we love about Winston-Salem is our church home. We joined First Presbyterian Church last year in September after attending regularly for several months. Our dearest friends Jeremy and Casey are also members of the church, and we thought it would be really special to have our babies baptized together. So, on September 20th Matthew and Taryn were baptized! Of course Matthew decided to fall asleep about 5 minutes before he was supposed to be baptized, so he was woken up by water being dripped on his head! He looked confused for a minute, and then got a little mad. Thankfully he calmed back down and fell back asleep. We were very fortunate to be able to spend this day with friends and with our family as well. After the church service we came back to our house and a had a little party for the occasion.

A Whirlwind Update in Pictures

I am WAY behind on the blogging, so I'm just going to post some pictures with captions to catch up on everything that's been going on!
Matthew really enjoyed watching his first Gator game. So far he is undefeated as a Gator fan!

Matthew also participated in his first golf outing! His grandparents were very proud of him for making it all 18 holes! He did sleep from hole 7 to 16, but he was very good!

We love making our little man smile!

Four months old! Wearing my first pair of jeans too.

I just rolled over for the first time and am so proud of myself!
