Hunter Ale

Our friend and neighbor, Paul, brews his own beer.
He always gives a name to his latest home brew and
this time Hunter was his inspiration. His very talented wife,
Marcie, made these personalized labels. Underneath Hunter's
picture it says, "Beer so good it will make your mouth water".
How fitting since there's a little bit of drool hanging off of
Hunter's lip. And don't worry, Hunter did not consume any
beer in the taking of these photographs.

Hunter's eye has been oozing green gook and now it's red and puffy. I waited too late to call the pediatrician so we couldn't get in to see her today. She sent us to an After Hours office in fear that it could be pink eye and didn't want it to wait until tomorrow. We got there just as they were opening so it only took 30 minutes. He has a bacterial infection that is probably a result of the cold he just got over. I have to put an eye cream in his eye 3 times a day for the next week.

Hunter's First Boo-Boo

We get to blame this one on Grandma (Powell) - sorry Grandma! Heath and I went out Saturday night and Grandma came over to babysit. Apparently Hunter had a collision with her glasses and it left a couple ugly scratches by his eyebrow. I also came home at 1am to Hunter playing in the living room! I never imagined he'd wake up before 2am so I didn't leave another bottle or instructions for what to do if he did. I was able to feed him and put him right back to sleep so it was fine, but I was pretty surprised to see him awake when I walked in the door.

My First Post

Since I am completely new to this I figured I would start out simple by introducing ourselves.

Dena and I met in 2001, when she moved to Orlando after graduating from the best University in the Nation, FSU. We dated for one and a half years and got married May of 2003. Since then we have been traveling, going to FSU football games and just enjoying each others company. We recently added a new member to the family.

Hunter Heath Powell was Born in September 2006 one day after my 30th Birthday. Wow has he changed our lives. He is the best thing that has happened to us. He has been a joy and headache at times but he puts a smile on our faces on a daily basis.

Well that is the short of it. So long for now.
