Happy Half-Day!

Happy half-day to Gunnison, happy half-day to you!!! We are so blessed to have this happy little boy in our family. He is six months old tonight (6:58 pm) and it seems to have flown by in a flash! His little spirit is so sweet. The best example is this: poor little man has full blown pink-eye (courtesy of Josiah), a rotten cold and a fever-don't worry we've been to the doctor!!! He is sick and I can tell he doesn't feel good at all, yet he has been smiling at us all. He lifts his arms to be held and giggles at his big brothers' antics. His blessing has been coming true already-his sweet spirit has been a blessing to our home. He truly has brought the spirit of love into this house. I wasn't prepared for him, but he has been a wonderful and well-loved surprise! We love you Gunnison Michael Applegate.

Ahhh, he's just so darn cute I can barely stand it. He is, by far, one of the smileiest (sp?) babies I know. Happy half-day Gunner! I have to agree w/Jill-it should be a travesty for anyone to look that good the day after they had a baby.
