For fans of the effortless style, lovable family, and hilarious hijinks of Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines, it seems like only yesterday that they made the announcement that they were expecting the fifth member of the brood.

Now, the littlest Gaines is already six months old and practically ready to shiplap his own nursery.

As busy as the powerhouse entrepreneur couple must be, Chip and Joanna still find time for a quick Instagram post or two to share heartwarming family moments, classic pranks, and now, adorable photos of baby Crew.

Chip off the old block

As if Crew himself wasn’t already the cutest thing on the planet, his daddy has him dressed in Carhartt duck bibs and a coat—yes, Carhartt makes baby clothes and they’re amazing—and he looks like he’s about to get to work!

Joanna shares the sweetest photos of their precious little guy, too, including this beautiful moment captured a few weeks ago:

Raising a little baby while you’ve got a farmhouse-chic empire to run isn’t easy, but the Gaines’ have the village it takes to get the job done.

As a true family business, it seems only natural that Baby Crew gets to travel alongside mom and dad. It seems pretty much guaranteed that this little guy will inherit his dad’s sense of humor, too!

Being a baby is a pretty exhausting gig, but catching a nap on mom’s lap is a pretty big perk.

Doesn’t he just make you swoon?

Choosing to Trust Yourself

You can make choices that are not congruent with your history. You can makes choices that no one has ever made before.

Every other day, it seems we are given new ‘authoritative’ advice on social distancing, masks, what’s safe, and what isn’t. Much of the news to which we’re exposed contradicts what we were already told. The CDC and some top officials, who shall remain nameless, have done less than a stellar job of providing reliable public information. Some governors in large population states, have been inconsistent, partial, duplicitous, authoritarian, and, in some cases, criminal. Who Can I turn To? Against such a backdrop, how does John and Jane Q. Citizen move forward professionally and personally? This is not foolproof but works as well as anything we’ve seen: Trust yourself and your decisions. Trusting yourself enhances your ability to choose based on limited or inconsistent information. A study in the 1940s of highly successful people uniformly found that they reached decisions quickly and retreated from them slowly. A more recent study found when people make decisions based on instinct, they are happier or at least more content than those who make decisions based on careful analysis. Hmm. Too much thinking could be hazardous to your choices – and to your happiness! Reinforcing Statements Here is the statement that reinforces your desire to trust yourself: “I choose to trust my ability to make the right choice.” Another essential choice is choosing to feel worthy and complete, simply spoken to yourself: “I choose to feel worthy and complete.” This helps me reduce anxiety, stay calm, and feel more relaxed. Depending on how long it has been since you’ve felt worthy and complete, you might have to make this choice for many days or weeks running – but keep at it. By choosing to feel worthy and complete, you automatically redirect yourself to accept that there is nothing you must do. Everything is based on…

The Bold Bovine: Art by Doug Giles

[written by Doug Giles and republished with permission.] For those of you who’ve read the book the Leftists love to loathe, namely, The Bible, you know that King David went through more crap than Michael Moore’s colon. His brothers didn’t like him. King Saul sought to kill him and The Philistines weren’t big fans of his either.    Later in life, because of his sin of bumping uglies with Bathsheba and having her old man offed, his own kid sought to dethrone him as a consequence of David’s dalliance.    Suffice in to say that his ‘walk with God’ was messy.    David constantly needed God to bail him out and to come through in a big way with His supernatural power and boy howdy, did God ever show Himself mighty on David’s behalf!    In Psalm 92:10 David said, ” … You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.”   King David said God made him akin to a … wild bull?   Yes, Dinky. David said God made him like a wild bull.   When’s the last time you’ve heard that preached at your Hipster Feelgood Church? Never I’m a guessin’.   In light of Psalm 92:10 I’m starting a series of oil paintings depicting both ancient and current wild bovines as a homage to Ps.92:10 and a reminder to my clients that when you get into deep doo-doo, don’t curl up in the fetal position and wet your big Christian diaper. Call out to God and ask Him to make you like a wild bull that kicks demonic ass.   Here’s the first in my series of bold bovine. The original is sold but we have prints available. We print on luster paper, museum quality canvas, wood and for all you metalheads, yes, we print…
