Visit Daddy at Work Day

Last Friday, I took the kids in to meet Mike at work. He had fun showing them off, they had fun running amuck through the cubicles, and I had fun eating lunch at Chipotle afterwards. Note: this is not to say that I didn’t enjoy meeting Mike’s co-workers — they were very nice and...

Wendy experienced another milestone in her young life … her first sleepover! She & Sam have spent the night with relatives, but this is the first time she spent the night at a friend’s house.  Yesterday, after preschool, I dropped her off at the Buttemeres, so she could spend the night with her friend...

Six Weeks … and we have a smile!

Adam now six weeks and doing great. He’s not quite as comatose as he started, but still sleeps lengthy portions of the day. The afternoons and evenings have become a little more fussy, but usually he will settle if he is held via arms, sling, or carrier. His right eye is still a little...

Umbilical Hernia

Although we still have a couple of weeks before we go back to the doctor, there is no doubt he has an umbilical hernia. It’s pretty weird to look at, so I am curious what the doctor will say. Typically surgery isn’t needed and it resolves on it’s own, so I guess we’ll find...
