Saturday is Dad-urday. While @s.d.wildman and the sweet and kind @stephaniehaddix worked on packing the kitchen, Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I hiked, dodged rain, and finished the day with s’mores. ⁣ ⁣ Charles is all about being a leader. “I want to be in charge,” he says. So, we talked about what it means to lead – to listen to others, to learn what they need, and to let them know how they can help each other. ⁣ ⁣ With that in mind, he got to go down the trail first and help us find our way back. ⁣ ⁣ #truth #dadlife #leadership #parenting
Few things are more beautiful than a life that represents Jesus. Few things are more damaging than a life that claims to represent Jesus, but does not truly reflect his heart. // #lifequotes #truth #love
The little buddies love “coffee milk” right now. I pour milk into espresso cups. We sit around the table and talk about whatever. I feel like one of the simple tragedies of life today is how infrequently we pause and talk with each other face to face. I’d like these guys to grow up with another idea of what’s normal.
Finally.... fancy food for the rest of us! 😂⁣ ⁣ #Repost @johnbcrist⁣ ・・・⁣ Introducing Red Apron: The Fast Food Delivery Service Disguised as Meal Prep

Never mind Mother’s Day.... this amazing woman deserves a Mother’s Week! Watching @s.d.wildman become a mother and grow into the job has been one of my life’s great joys. Bring her partner is one of my greatest reasons for gratitude. Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I have won the mother jackpot.⁣ ⁣ “Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10⁣ ⁣ #mothersday #boymom #truth #lifequotes #lovequotes #love

From Tweet Street

One of the things we were most curious and anxious about when we brought Charles (aka Chuck Bear) home from the hospital was how The Brown would react to his new boy.

So, we brought Charles in, set him down in his car seat, and turned on the camera to capture the moment of truth. Would our three-year old chocolate Lab welcome the baby, ignore it, or….???

What’s better than video of a cute baby? Video of a cute baby being checked out by his big brown dog.

You’re welcome, Internet.


How cute is that?

More Charles’ cuteness from day one and day two.

    The video wouldn’t play for me, but the pic is adorable! Our dog was immèdiately protective of our first one. I hope the same holds true for the second.

      It’s amazing how dogs seem to know that babies need extra care! Thanks for the heads up on the video link… I think I fixed it. 🙂
