April 24: A Christmas Outfit?

(click here for pictures) It was soon obvious that Dennie baby 4 was on his way. After a little figuring, Tara thought he would be here near Christmas time so she laid a baby Christmas outfit on the bed to let Robby know the exciting news. He didn’t notice it for a few hours-even laid his clothes beside it. After all, we do have lots of little clothes lying around our house. Tara finally had to draw Robby’s attention to the outfit for him to notice. He quickly understood the news and was thrilled.
