Another brother


We're expecting a baby boy sometime right around (but hopefully not on) September 11, 2013.

Guido seems to be healing up well, and he's able to eat some on his own now. We're all looking forward to him being back to normal in a few more weeks.

Iris has been finger-knitting a lot and making lots of scarves and necklaces out of yarn. She's "superstar" this week in 1st grade, which involves filling out a little survey about herself. One of the questions was "How many people live in your household, and what are their names?" She chose 7 as her answer, and one of the people was listed as "new baby" because she didn't know his name yet.

Zinnia has been uncharacteristically clingy lately. She comes up to me and says, "I love you, Becca" several times a day. She's looking forward to a trip to IKEA to get a new bed for her (she and Neil have been sharing a full bed for the past couple of years).

Neil is obsessed with prehistoric animals. He's made up several of his own (including Iphodonius, the giant caterpillar, Iphomemus, the biggest pterosaur that ever existed, and Strobimemus, a pterosaur with a big horn on the back of its head). He also decided this week that he didn't want overnight diapers anymore, and so far, so good.

Wendell is starting to stand up on his own but not taking steps yet. He is remarkably content to be on his own, just doing his own thing in another corner of the same room as me. He loves to eat and is mostly self-feeding at this stage, but he still hasn't figured out how to drink from a sippy cup unless someone else is holding it. Fortunately for him, there's always someone around who is happy to do so. :-)

Congratulations! If he wants to wait a week before exploring the outside world, he's welcome to share my birthday.

Congratulations again!

And would you like some newborn prefolds? I have a dozen I'd rather not store on the off chance I decide to three is not enough.

Congrats again! Btw, Sept 11th is my little brother's birthday, so at least he'd have some company if that turned out to be the day.

Don't you know what causes that? Boy, you sure have your hands full. Are they all yours? Do they all have the same father? You know, they could just join an existing basketball team, you didn't have to make your own.

Congratulations. :)
