Because You Needed a Reason to Smile On Monday

I'm on my own today for the first time and it's a doozy. Jay has faculty workshop followed by faculty lunch and then he's staying to work on his syllabi. Oh, and on top of that there's a faculty dinner tonight so he won't be home until Joshua's bedtime. This should be interesting.

Off the Charts!

Clare just got home from her two-week checkup and everything is super. Two weeks ago when we went in for a weight check she had dropped to 9 lbs, 4 oz from her birthweight of 10 lbs, 3 oz, so I guessed that when we went in today she'd be back up to birthweight plus a few ounces.


As of today, she weighs 10 lbs., 13 oz. She's almost 23 inches long, and her head circumference is 39 cm. Every measurement is above the 95th percentile. The doctor was quite pleased with the checkup.

And yet she couldn't prescribe a magic bullet to make Clare sleep at night rather than during the day.

She Has Arrived!

Elizabeth Clare joined the world on August 3 at 12:56 p.m. She weighed 10 lbs., 3 oz and measured 19.5" long. It is quite possible that she will be a redhead, although only time will tell. We plan to call her Clare.

Pictures and birth story are forthcoming.

Great Distractions While Waiting to Give Birth

They just don't make 'em like they used to. I actually remember this one.

And if you really feel like jamming, this may do the trick.
