My Great Nephew Joshua ... aka 'Turtle'

Today we finally were able to hold the 'newest' addition to the family, Joshua.  My niece Jessie, her husband Matt, Josh and my other niece Abby were visiting from Dallas.  Josh will be a year old next month, so seeing him was a long time coming!

When he was born, Jessie told me he lifted his head up straight and looked around with his little tongue sticking out just a little...just like a little turtle.


He is such a sweet, happy and beautiful little boy!

The day was spent around new faces and new places to check out.... his Dad took him for a ride around my sister and BIL's acreage on one of the JD tractors



He is so anxious to stand and will probably be walking before his first birthday.  His Great Aunt Julie decided to give him the chance of standing up by himself with the help of a 20 gallon crock...



Josh got lots of hugs and kisses from everyone... sticking out that little tongue again


Auntie Bev took off his shoes and started tickling his feet


Great day -  he never fussed ONCE 
Toward the end of the day all he wanted was his Mommy...


So we said Good-Night and will hopefully see him tomorrow





Joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.  Check out her blog for some wonderful mosaics!

What a cute little boy! The standing in the crock photos are precious and those chubby little toes are too tempting, I can see why his auntie took off his shoes :)

Barb, you've created a most memorable mosaic of one day in this precious little boy's life! I think you should take the digital copy of it to a film place & have one made to be framed. It would be GREAT to display on his high school or college graduation table. LOL
