Latest News

Sorry it's been a while since we've posted an update. It's a lot of work to care for a newborn, you know? Will now weighs 13 lbs 8 oz. (We had him weighed again today). Alisha took him to the doctor today because we've been concerned with a rash he's had on his face. Friends told us it was probably baby acne & nothing to worry about. But it's continued & this morning it looked worse. So we decided to let the doc take a look. If nothing else to put our minds to ease. Come to find out he has seborrhea. It's nothing to be alarmed about. It's very common in newborns (we're told). And with treatment we should see almost immediate results. The dr. said in 2-3 days it should be cleared up. So that's great news. The only concern is that seborrhea can sometimes be an early sign that your child will have eczema. So we're praying that Will won't have eczema. For now, we're glad we know what's going on & how to treat it.

This weekend we head to Mississippi State for the Auburn game! We're excited. Before long Will is going to be singing the fight song along with the rest of the family. Right now he just throws up his arms & says "touchdown!" (with a little help from dad:) We'll have new pictures up next week.
