Crue was baptized!

Crue Matney was welcomed into God's family this weekend when he was baptized at the beach in Ventura by our cousin, Pastor Erik. Crue was joined by his cousin Calla, making it a double baptism.  What a special day!

Family Pics!

When does a couple have both sides of the family together? Not that often! SO we decided to take some family pictures. We felt blessed as the lady who took our wedding photos was available to do our family portraits! It was super windy, but the photos turned out great!

Crue takes swim lessons!

I found a pool that gives babies under 6 months old free swim lessons. Crue likes to take 45 minute baths so I figured he was a natural swimmer, but I never thought he would like it as much as he did. Glad we have a pool so he can enjoy it that much more! We go every Sat morning for a half hour. So fun!

Funny story

I was holding Crue out so Claire could take off his diaper for bath time. I though it would be funny to hold him naked and chase Claire around saying "pee on Mom, pee on Mom!!" Then I realized he had pooped....and I had bear poopy butt against my shirt. I have poop on me. Claire wins.

Happy Anniversary

To Claire, 
You've been up nearly all night with our beautiful baby boy while you let me sleep so I can function at work. Most would laugh and say how tough it is, but those that have done it will recall the joy. A few times last night I woke up enough to look across the room and see you with him. It was the epitome of the "joy" aspect of this adventure. On this, our 8th wedding anniversary, I am more in love with you than ever, and beyond that I'm in awe of your strength and attitude in the face of a fussy baby and sleepless nights. You are such an amazing wife. I love you, and thank you for being such a constant in my life for the past 13 years. Xoxox 
Love, Tyler
