Baby Truman in the HOUSE!

After nine looooong months of waiting Baby Truman finally joined the Andersen family.  It was a grueling delivering with bad epidurals and an even worse recovery for Emily with several blood patches and a broken tailbone.  But I can tell you her certainly joined a family that loves him to pieces!!!

I know this is kind of a creepy picture of me but it was such a special treat to be able to live in the same town as my sister and be so lucky to snuggle with this little guy just hours after he was born.

 Seth and Caroline's family was able to come up for Truman's baby blessing.  We sure love having them "close" by (though just about anything is closer than Africa).  Cali is such a delight to have around!
 Caroline getting in some baby snuggles!
 This little thing is still learning her place as an older sister.  It's been a bit rough to not be the baby of the family anymore.
 I think it is fair to say that Ryan is smitten with his first boy!
 Alysee is just in heaven.
I know it meant a lot to the Andersens to have family in town for the blessing.  I'm grateful to have such a handsome tall brother and a beautiful sister!

Nate and Coop -- Soccer Power

Another intense season of soccer with Nate!

 Coop was SO excited to play on a real soccer team this season!  He was invited to play on the Panthers Team.  Coach Barrientos has really been great!

Check out that smile -- gotta love watching Coop!  He does a little dance while playing goalie!

Rock Monkeys

The kids have really been wanting to go rock climbing one more time before it starts getting too chilly.  Momma and Chloe decided to stay home while the rest of the kids went on an adventure with Daddy.
Coop gets a little more brave each time he goes climbing.

"I'm Awesome," says Alex.
Check out Daddy's hot buns!

Now this is what happens when Mom stays home...Nate belaying Tyler??  Yikes!

Alex on his way down!

Tyler was the camera man for most of this outing.

Alysee at peace with the Feathers.
