Overwhelmed Again

Filed under: Visitors — JeniQ @ 4:01 pm

Hah, I already have a post titled “Overwhelmed.”

My brother, his wife and their two kids arrive from Portland in two hours! Granma’s already made it in from Virginia Beach and is getting settled at her hotel. I am pooped from cleaning the house and rearranging things so that our place looks spectacular. J&D haven’t been to Raleigh since we got married so this will be the first time they see our house. I’m house proud so I want it to look great! They’re bringing their two boys, 4 and 2, who are going to see just how not-toddler-proof our house is. That will be exciting. We’re going to have a fun couple of days with them, granma and my mom.

To top off all this upcoming mayhem, my sister-in-law Mary and her daughter Audrey are coming on Saturday, right when Clan Q will be departing! I hope she doesn’t mind having to change her own sheets! 🙂 I am going to be tired but am so glad to be able to spend time with all these folks!!

Yayayay and now I want to go to bed. Hahaha!

Umbilical Hernia

Filed under: Henry — JeniQ @ 11:14 pm

Henry has an umbilical hernia. It’s really nothing to worry about but it doesn’t look too good and makes it harder to wear cute two-piece outfits.


Poor buddy. Turns out Dave had the same thing and had surgery to fix it when he was 6 months old.

Henry is 8 Weeks!

Here’s Henry waving to the crowd.

Here are those long eyelashes he grew this week.

Dave gave Henry a special ‘do after his bath the other night. He has his granpy’s hair!! Bouffant

Eight Weeks!

Filed under: Henry — JeniQ @ 5:17 pm

Henry is eight weeks old already! Seems hard to believe.

So what’s new with him? Let’s see.

Over the past week his eyelashes have grown enormously so now they’re Maybelline long, but still no eyebrows to speak of. Pictures of these eyelashes to come.

His vision is definitely improving and he can track us using both his hearing and his vision.

He also started smiling in response to Dave and me today! Perfect timing as he’s having a horde of visitors descending on him tomorrow! Hopefully we’ll have photographic proof of this smile to share with you as well.

He has officially outgrown his fabulous David Bowie onesie as well as my favorite blue star onesie. Sheesh!

We’re now having nightly baths as part of his bedtime ritual and it’s working out well. He sleeps really good and he smells better, too.

Time to go do a million things.

Most people won’t realize how funny this is, but damn, it’s funny.
Last September Bizarro went on a crazy romp through Austin.

Here are some photos and an interview conducted by Kevin Flood.

Getting set up for the interview.

The interview itself.

Here’s the guy who took Bizarro on his adventure

Some crazy mad scientist who made a pickle explode during his speech. He was awesome and he clearly loves Bizarro.

We bought this ball of wool and yarn last year, but it never got much attention from the birds. This year, however, I spied a titmouse taking full advantage of it!
