Am I cute or what?

My First Cardinals Game!!

He was wide eyed the whole game looking at all the lights and learning how to be a true Cardinal fan! We had seats right behind home plate and Andrew was the main hit in our section--youngest fan there. Daddy was very proud of our little son and tried to teach him all the players' names.

Baptized in Christ

The service had begun, the baptismal gown was on, family was present and everything was in place on Aug. 12th, 2007. But our focus was on this...THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKING THROUGH THE WATERS OF BAPTISM!!!

We pray that little Andrew will grow to love and honor our Lord Jesus Christ. And with the help of his parents (oh, that's us), his God Parents (Aunt Amy and Uncle Chris), the Holy Spirit and the "big church" (that is YOU), that we would encourage and support this love for JESUS.

ANDREW'S BAPTISM-You are invited

"Let the little children come to me, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 10:14

You are invited to the 10:30 am Sanctuary Praise Service at St. John Ellisville on SUNDDAY AUGUST 12TH 2007.

He enjoys getting his hair washed, as you can tell by the picture, so we bet he will be great during the spinkling.

Daddy has the honor to baptize him so don't miss it. We will also be using water that Nana and Papa Peterson brought from the Jordan River,in Israel.

If you come, Andrew will show you what he can do with his hair!

Update on Andrew. Aug 7th 2007

Thank you so much for all your prayers, they have helped. It has been a long road, but the end is in sight (I have been outside 2 times since I have been here, otherwise I have been spending time with Andrew). We are going home tonight after he receives his last antibiotic!!! We are anticipating this!!

At birth he weighed 7 lbs 14 oz, lost weight as normal and is now up to 7 lbs 10 oz. We are not able to take him out of the special care unit, so I have been breast feeding in the unit. The hospital has given us a "hospitality room" and we have access to the Ronald McDonald house (computer, couches, fridge, table etc)--the only anxiety is that they can kick us out at any time. (Oh, and Ryan says that the recliner is uncomfortable so we are sharing a hospital bed).

Andrew your bassinet awaits you!
