Ruthie and the "Muk"

Ruthie loves to carry on long conversations with everyone in the house, even while she's still mastering adult English. Meanwhile, she is teaching all of us Ruthiespeak. One of our favorites is her name for Grandma DeWilde. Mema just doesn't fit in her vocabulary yet, so she has proclaimed Kitty to be the Muk as in: "Where da Muk?" or "Muk, c'mon!"

How long this will last is anyone's guess, but we're all enjoying it and having a good laugh over how much control a little girl can have over our lives!

Cinco Nietos! -- Five grandchildren!!

Joseph Preston was born this morning to Kristy and Cam. He is our fifth grandchild! We thank God for blessing all of us with another healthy and beautiful child in our family. All of these wonderful kids in just over 3 years ... hard to believe it's been such a short time. This grandparenting thing is just so amazing, and each of our grandkids is so special.

What a joy to spend a week welcoming Joseph into the family and watching Ruth as she began to adjust to her new role as the big sister and adore her little brother. He is a big baby and already showing signs of awareness of his surroundings and people. We just know he's going to grow quickly! Keep an eye on Kristy and Cameron's blog for photos and news ... and as with all our grandkids there will be plenty of pics here also.
