John Clayton Smallwood

"Clay" arrived this week! He
is a very laid back easy baby (so far) and he has been a wonderful addition to our family. We can't wait to get him home so he can spend more time with his big sister. Grandmom and Grand Bob are in town helping with Jane and the horses. It has been really comforting knowing that they are taking care of the daily tasks around the farm (and overseeing the bathroom remodel).

First Haircut

Jane got her first haircut last week. She wasn't thrilled about it but she was pretty good. We think she looks all grown up.

Change of Plans

A routine ultrasound yesterday revealed that baby #2 is a boy not a girl! We have a lot to do in 7 weeks.

Thanksgiving at the NJ Shore

We all went to the beach for Thanksgiving. It was really fun.  Jane had a blast visiting with her cousins and grandparents.  She really liked the sand and the waves.

For those of you who didn't already know we lost a member of our family this summer. We miss her terribly and we comfort ourselves by knowing she lived a long, happy and full life. It is hard to express how much her friendship meant to me as she was my best friend for eleven years.

Get To Work Patches!!

Did you think he was just here to be a yard ornament??

Welcome Patches!

Jane finally got a pony of her own! Patches arrived last month and has been a fun edition to our family. He loves kids and is very easy going. Jane has ridden him twice and she has already learned to wave at him when we walk by his paddock.
