Cute Baby Monday

by HereWeGoAJen on September 29, 2014

This is another picture testing post because I think I may have fixed the giant pictures issue. I can’t tell until I actually post it and then go look though, so we will see.

(Updated: darn it, not fixed. I shall try again later.)

Ryan is two today. This seems unbelievable since he is clearly a tiny baby. I know everyone says this but seriously, he was just a tiny baby.

He’s getting his official birthday day tomorrow, when everyone is home for the day and we have plenty of time to lavish him with attention and presents. Elizabeth is a bit concerned about the fact that there hasn’t been any mention about birthday presents for HER for Ryan’s birthday. Clearly some kind of oversight. Someone should look into this.

September 19, 2014

•I took today almost completely off from new house stuff (like unpacking and organizing and installing) and just did regular house stuff (like cleaning and laundry). It was definitely necessary. •Today was Talk Like a Pirate Day and Krispy Kreme was giving away free glazed doughnuts. Ryan and I both dressed up like pirates and […]

Dog Shenanagins

September 18, 2014

In our old house, Trin generally slept out in the hall. Here that isn’t working because she’s been barking too early in the morning and waking everyone up. (The construction on our street starts as early as four in the morning sometimes.) So for the last few nights, I’ve shut her in my closet when […]
