Goin' Courtin'

Goin' courtin', goin' courtin'
Oh it sets your senses in a whirl.
Goin' courtin', goin' courtin'
Dudin' up to go and see your gal.
Oh, it's fun to hunt and shoot a gun,
Or to catch a rabbit on the run
But you'll find it's twice as sportin' goin' courtin'.
Now there's lots o' things you gotta know
Be sure the parlor light is low
Y' sidle up and squeeze her hand
Let me tell you fella's that is grand.
You hem and haw a little while
She gives you kinda half a smile.
You cuddle up she moves away
Then the strategy comes into play.
Goin' courtin', goin' courtin'
If you find it hard to break the ice
Goin' courtin', goin' courtin'
Here's a little feminine advice.
Roll your eyes and heave a little sigh.
Grunt and groan like you're about to die.
That is what's known as emotin' goin' courtin'!

I'd Like You to Meet...

Our Son

James Daniel Archer

Yesterday Curtiss and I went to O- for my first prenatal appointment with the midwife that we are going to use. Since I happened to be 25 weeks along we were able to find out what we were having on our very first visit. The ultrasound was amazing both just to see the baby and because they had a college student in the room observing so the technician did a very thorough job of explaining exactly what to do and what to look for. Both Jimmy (I just had to call him that:) and I are doing very well and the ladies in the office didn't gape too much when they asked if I was transferring from somewhere else and I said no :) Curtiss and I are just amazed and excited and looking forward to seeing our little man in person not just on a black and white screen :)
