More Pictures

A kiss from mom in the front yard.


We took him to the grandparents pool for July 4th. He never got in but had a great time playing around the sides.



One happy family. This was taken on the "Red Couch" in the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou China on our last night there.





Below is a shot of the "North Alabama" encampment at the Detroit airport Wednesday June 27th. On the left is Monica Carter with new daughter Lily Mei, and son Landon.





Our little guy has more facial expressions than you would believe. Here he's copping an attitude with Baba in the kitchen pantry.



Wednesday July 4, 2007 was Paul William's 3rd birthday and 1st Independence Day as a new American citizen. He was automatically granted citizenship when he passed through immigration at the Detroit airport on June 27th. Below he is blowing out candles with the help of mom.



So far his favorite spot at home is on the couch. He even sleeps there at night. Here he's just chillin' out.

Hi Greg and Mary Louise,
As the saying goes, this is a small world. To make a story short, I know Steve and Monica Carter and was keeping up with their blog. They would mention "The Ogles" but I never thought it would be the "Greg Ogle" I know. So congratulations on your paper chase, your trip to and from China to welcome Paul William into your family. Just wanted to share mine and Dan's best wishes to you and your family.

Dan Gaydosh

Love,
