Congratulations Adeline!

    Julie and Dan started the New Year off by celebrating Adeline’s birthday. During our drive to the party, Jan and I reminisced about SnowJam 2017 that accompanied Adeline’s birth a year ago today, and how quiet Atlanta’s streets were as we drove to the hospital. This year’s weather is cold with no snow – hooray! – but lots of traffic as folks gather in Atlanta for the UGA Alabama championship game Monday night!

    Adeline’s birthday was celebrated in grand style.  Julie did a great job of decorating the house, she and Izzy were great hostesses, and Dan whipped up a great lunch for the crowd of Cobbs and Fields.  Thanks for including us in the celebration Julie, Dan and Izzy!  Photos are in the 2018 Gallery.

    Dan, Julie and Adeline celebrate Adeline’s birthday on January 6th, 2018. Happy Birthday Adeline!!

    Welcome Adeline Margaret Fields to Julie, Dan, and Izzy’s family. She arrived on January 6th and has already captivated a number of hearts around the Fields and Cobb households. Congratulations Julie, Dan, and Izzy.

    Chomp & Stomp

    Bill, Gramma Jan, Barbara & Fred Bradshaw, Claudia Gimson, Julie and Izzy headed for Chomp and Stomp in Cabbagetown on November 5th to sample Dan’s chili and cheer for him to win the chili cooking competition.

    Chomp & Stomp is a Chili Cook-off and Bluegrass Festival that benefits Cabbagetown parks and community center.  This year over 70 individual chili teams entered the competition, and Dan’s was one of the 70.

    The day was gorgeous and the venue — a short walk from Julie and Dan’s Grant Park home — was absolutely packed with spectators.  We sampled lots of chili from lots of different vendors (verdict: it was all delicious!), visited with Dan and his team for a short time and then headed back to Julie’s to hang out and put Izzy down for a nap.  John and Sharon dropped by on their way into Chomp & Stomp so we also had a nice visit with them.

    We have not heard if Dan won a prize for his chili.  He should have.

    Izzy’s Day

    Izzy had an event filled day last Sunday, March 29th.  She was baptized Sunday morning and celebrated her baptism and first birthday that afternoon.  Participants in her activities included local family and friends and Fields family members who traveled from Canada for the celebrations.

    Julie and Dan are ready …

    Mom and I had a great visit with Julie and Dan last night. We both observed that they look fantastic! I guess we were expecting to see an exhausted Julie, perhaps swollen a bit and just plain looking uncomfortable. Not so! She was what I would call “glowing”. “Glowing” may not be the best term to describe a man … but Dan was glowing too!

    Everything is ready at their home for the baby. Julie has done a great job of decorating and outfitting the nursery – it looks really cute in its yellow and gray colors. All it needs now is a baby!

    We are packed and ready to move in with them for a three day shift of helping Dan, Julie and Baby Fields (Indie, too) start their lives together!

    We are truly blessed to be able to join them at this important time in their lives.
