iPhones are yummy, too!

You just have to wrestle them away from Daddy...

But not as delicious as Daddy's nose!

Mama was disgusted.

Exhausted from being cute

Got him!

If Daddy ever wakes me up early for another photo shoot, I'll pee on him again, too.

Bathing just in time

to welcome Daddy home!

Reading w/ Mr. Frog

Lunch with Will

David's not used to being around other kids, but that will change as we have more summer play dates. Up next: poolside Sunday with the fellas! For much better photos of the day's adventures, check out the pics Christina took here.

Meeting Sabol

David thinks she's cute, but he's on best behavior around her Daddy.

It's not that bad!

And it really isn't that bad. Here's the medical update promised to friends and family:
After presenting my case at a conference (yes, I'm now a subject for medical science!), the conclusion by my oncologist and her peers was that further treatment is necessary. They've decided to do radiation, because it's the most common approach to treating the sort of brain tumor that I have. Yes, I still have a little bit of it in my head. Gross, I know. There was a minor meltdown after seeing that on the scans, but I just keep reminding myself that all my physicians say that the prognosis is good and there's no need for worry. So, I try not to worry. I have a great doctor in Jackson who is doing my radiation in Vicksburg, which means that I do NOT have a two hour round trip each day for a ten minute treatment. That, in itself, is a major victory. If all goes as planned, the six week radiation cycle they've prescribed will be the end of dealing with sickness because it'll kill the residual tumor cells, and then I'll just have regular scans (every three months) to check and make sure that nothing's growing where it shouldn't be. Side effects from radiation to the brain are commonly headaches, nausea, tiredness, hair loss, and loss of appetite. One week into things, I've had four of the five side effects (no nausea, thankfully, and hair loss isn't yet to the visible stage), but all are mild. Tiredness will grow stronger as we get later into the radiation cycle, because that's a cumulative side effect, but we have moms and moms-in-law waiting on the sidelines to stay with us and help with David when the need arises. And we also have Aunt Angie, David's nanny, who is like a mother to all of us. Thanks to all for the prayers and good wishes. The twenty-five remaining treatments countdown is on...

First trip to Home Depot

Can you believe I made it this long before they took me to see a glimpse of my yardworking future?

Thursday night date with Liz

She's beautiful. She's smart. She lets me stay up past my regular bedtime. Eat your heart out, fellas!

You should taste these fingers!

Hey, Uncle Jim!

Can you believe that Mama didn't offer me the phone when you called? Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you're well!

Caught you, Mama!

You can't sneak up on me with that camera. It beeps!

Go Wildcats!

Thanks to Big Daddy, I'm the youngest card carrying member of the Valdosta Touchdown Club. (But note: today I'm 5 months old and getting bigger every minute!) I'm excited about our new coach. He's the only one I've ever known, actually. I'm thinking about road tripping to the home opener against Brooks County.
