Emily's Little Will

Well, now that my friend Emily has updated her blog, I can post my picture of baby Will ( I didn't want to be the leak!). It is the experience of a lifetime to be present at the birth of someone else's baby...totally different than being there for your own! I got the call at 3:03am that her contractions were pretty strong and 3 minutes apart. I went to her house and helped her labor there. It was so cool...she was so calm and relaxed. After we got to hospital, it was only about 2 hours until Will made his arrival! Lots of dark hair, almost 9 pounds and super long toes! What a cutie! He looked a bit like Maddie. What an honor to be part of that miracle! Thanks, Emily! Good luck to you and your little family!

Play Geo's Mastermind Game

So, my husband is the coolest! He can make just about any game on the computer and his latest is a version of Mastermind. I had never heard of it, but picked up an electronic, handheld one at a garage sale for 25 cents (Happy Father's Day, Geo!) That motivated him to write the game. Be careful, it can be addictive! But it's a great way to pass the time and I am sure that it protects your brain from Alzheimer's or something like that. Here it is! Have fun, but don't neglect any children in the process:)

Well, the time has come and Sam is eating us out of house and home. This kid is unbelievable! I love reading all the material that says start with 1-2 tablespoons of solid food. We jumped right to 2 jars of the 2nd foods. Anyway, he loves it! And so do the other kids. Today, I got Sam's carrots and oatmeal all ready and then had to leave the table to find the tub plug for my husband. I came back and this is what I saw. I started laughing and had to run and get the camera. Natalie will be the perfect Mommy someday!

Krispy Kreme

I have a 4 year old son that enjoys food as much as I do. He is always talking about the next treat that may be coming or his favorite thing to say at any given time during the day, "If we eat all our dinner, then we'll have a tree-eat!" He has become really good at recognizing restaurant signs. I should have seen this coming...when he was 15 months old, he would point to the golden arches and say "fry-fry". The other day we're driving and he says, "That gas station is a Krispy Kreme store!" Well, I know that Levi can't read, so I turn to look and sure enough, I turn to find this tiny little Krispy Kreme sign. And again driving by Bob Evans, Levi says "That's where I get my free birthday meal". Yes, I do believe we have a "restaurant logo savant" on our hands! He cracks me up!
