He’ll outgrow it.

This video is worth a blog post unto itself.

John’s Mom and Dad came to Louisville this weekend (and in fact, at the time of this writing are still here)

Jan really enjoyed making Gunner laugh by sneezing at him.

In case you can’t pick up the conversation being had while the camera was rolling, please, allow me to transcribe below the video below:

Jan: “a-a-a-a-achoo”

All: “hahaha”

Jan: “you’re the only one that laughs at me, Gunner, thank you, I love you.”

Rick (from across the room): “He’ll outgrow it.”


One more video can be added to this blog post.  It could be titled: “the foolish lengths babies will compel fully grown adults to go to just to hear them laugh”.  But I think I’ll just shorten it to “Mom making Gunner laugh”. Enjoy.


Big Tex

Do y’all remember where Gunner took his first step?  That’s right, not two minutes after he entered this world he took his first step onto the great state of Texas.  Tonight was his first opportunity to prove himself worthy of such a giant step.  And he did us proud.

Katherine and I dug deep into our imaginations to come up with the perfect costume for our little cowhand’s first Halloween.  Really it was quite easy.  We just picked the clothes that were on top of all the other ones in his drawers (and mine).

For your viewing pleasure:

Upon the arrival at our church’s “Trunk or Treat,” we were informed by a church member (Chris Burtch) that Gunner and I looked most “natural” in our costumes.

Gunner’s friend, Sadie, decided that she didn’t like the scary costumes that came around.  Skeletons, vampires, and werewolves weren’t her thing.  Her parents told her she only had to give candy to the trick or treaters that didn’t scare her.  This picture speaks for itself at how comfortable she was with the little wrangler.

What do you want to bet this isn’t the last time Gunner taps into his deep Texas roots for Halloween?
