Special Delivery...

John Tully Cockerham is the most special delivery we could ever receive!!
Tully arrived in perfect condition on April 5, 2011 at 6:13 p.m.  Weighing 8 lbs 2 ozs and was 20 inches long.  He came with instructions:  "Need Milk" ...but, it just seems to go in one end and out the other... sometimes when you least expect it!

There is a story to this copper mailbox.  I found it in "Copper Penny", an antique mall, and wanted to buy it for this very reason -- to take a pic some day of my grandchild arriving in it.  It just so happens Ashley was in town one day, so I had to show her and tell her about what I wanted to do with it when she decided to have a baby.  She says "Well, buy it, someday I'll have a baby!"... but she was ready to get home.  She had no time for shopping and made that clear.  Dennis was on the golf course so we were just passing some time waiting for him to get home.  It just so happens that was the very day she told us she was pregnant!  Who knew! That was why she was so anxious to get home.  I have hung on to this mailbox for 9-10 months.

So the other day, Ashley and I got her camera out, moved things around, and took some pics while he was sleeping.  He is such a sweet baby.

Sometimes he sleeps... and of course, sometimes he's awake....
Sometimes he hangs out with his buddy "Lambsy" in Mommy's Rocker
He is watching his Daddy and once again listening intently

He is so fun to watch as he observes his surroundings and listens to everyone.  He just tilts his head as if he is saying "are you talking to me?"

One thing for sure, he does not lack for attention or love!  We are so blessed to share our love with him. 


  1. That is adorable! What a great idea too.

  2. Thanks Terri, I'll save this mailbox for future pics of him and his siblings... when that day comes! :-)
