Katie has been in town helping us with the baby since I’ve
been back at work. Today when buying things for for the baptism
we saw the newest Lays flavors and decided to do an on-the-fly
parody video of our two younger sisters and their food channel!
Sooooo, I’ll give you one guess what has been keeping us busy. Baby E arrived May 18th and was born via emergency c-section (aka, scary as sh!t for all of us), but JP, our SON and I are all doing wonderfully and gettin into our groove as a family of three.
Senorita Fluffybutt is adjusting well too. When we brought the baby home she sniffed him and looked at us like ‘yes humans, that is indeed a tiny human. Are you expecting a treat or something?’
So, Internet, and friends and family who I’ve been driving crazy with a lack of pictures (that maternal instinct to protect has been super strong!), meet Bernhard Joseph:
He loves being held, cuddling up with us, listening to The Beatles (as he did in the womb), looking at our faces and has given himself a number of hickies. He has been a champion nurser from the get go, and hates being without clothes.
He is absolutely perfect, and we are completely smitten with him. And I love being a mother to this littlw boy :)
Alternate title for today’s post: Lizzy doesn’t ‘nest’ like a normal person.
So we completes two of the big things on my list before Baby E’s arrival in 5-ish weeks (holy crap!?). We got our little garden spaces planted, and the grill has been assembled and will take its ‘maiden voyage’ tonight in the form of cooking up some brats and steak!
SO looking forward to this thing being fired up!
Planted: squash, two types of cucumbers, three types of tomatoes, three types of pepper and two types of peas. Here’s hoping that they decide to actually grow, because the plants look just a tad pathetic right now. Not pictured – the two pots of flowers we also planted.
You can see from the last shot that we still need to pick things up, but given that i feel like i’ve done a horticulture interns worth of work we’re taking break. JP was kind enough to do most of the planting since i have issues gettinrg low enough to to ground now… Ah pregnancy :p
Just popping in really quick to point out that I’ve finally gotten around to updating the blog banner! No more “in Berlin” (sadface), but I can’t say that I mind the new one. JP is a big Hellboy fan and that’s our cake topper from way back when this whole thing started :D
Hope all of my readers are having as wonderful weather as we are today. Now to get on with some gardening!
