Sadie's new Room

Here is Sadie Owens with her Grandma & Grandpa after having spent her first night in her new house. She slept through the night in her crib bed in her own room. She continues to grow and develop her own personality. I don't know what to think of her hair. It kind of reminds me of the way mine would stand up in back if it wasn't controlled with hair oil. She is a sweet little girl and I'm sure she will have beautiful dark hair. Her presence has caused Elaine and I to take much more interest in little kids that we may come in contact with. We are inclined to ask questions of the Mothers about the age of the children, etc. when we see them. We have watched some of the youngsters in Church grow up so fast that it seems unbelievable. We were so busy working when our own kids were at this early stage that we just took so much for granted. Now it seems like a miracle every time we see Sadie and the changes that have occurred. Elaine missed an opportunity to baby sit her for a short while yesterday afternoon by being out shopping (and I was at the golf course). Her reaction was like that of missing Christmas but she was assured there would be more opportunities.

This is Sadie's bed and dresser. The dresser has some special meaning to Grandma Carolyn since she refinished and painted it special for the baby. I havn't seen it operate but understand they have a monitor that enables Julie and John to "keep tabs" on Sadie from their bedroom. When our oldest son Verlon was about 18 months old, the Stork brought his brother Tim. We didn't have a monitor and didn't need one to hear Verlon call out for some parental attention, after we all went to bed. He would start out by calling "Mommie", "Mommie" 3 or 4 times and when that didn't bring any results, he would say, "Daddy, Daddy" and how could any father resist going to the boys bedroom to see what he wanted.
