fubah! still…

H woke up from his nap about a half hour ago. Seems that it took about that long for him to escape his foggy-sleepiness and remember his new found obsession. FUBAH! FUBAH! Still. Listening: Best Coast


We are now at an hour and a half and counting. This is really weird. And seriously scary. Listening: Pixie Carnation

thanksgiving, oh what have you done to my son?

We had a lovely, lovely turkey day with Finn’s family. Absolutely one of the best t-day meals I have ever had. Thank you to you all for letting us crash. There was football on upstairs and while we were waiting for dinner H and I crawled up to take a peek. We were maybe in […]

learning from elizabeth (2)

Last Friday Auntie Kylies (that’s my sister Kylie’s official family name) came to visit after working in Dallas and Houston all week. We started mentioning to H that KYLIES is coming!

patience, a follow-up

We got a video this morning of H showing off his “patience”, as learned from Elizabeth. He was pretty calm when I asked him to be patient, so we aren’t getting the full effect but, it’s still really sweet: Listening: The Sun

heart- and soul-less

The kid is 18-months-old tomorrow. I am flabbergasted. The last six months flew by like Christmas morning for a 10-year-old. While the first year was more like that 8am Biology course I took the first semester of my freshman year at college. Whoever believed I would be able to wake-up at that ungodly hour and […]

chicken-fried-bacon… enough said

A couple Fridays ago it was my birthday. All I ever really want for my birthday is a nice dinner – a good bottle of wine, some kind of well-prepared fish or meat served with a delicious vegetable. This year I got chicken-fried-bacon. And sausage on a stick. And beer. And a paper hat. A […]
