Robin is 22″ long and weighs 9 lbs 1/4 oz as of this morning. And the newborn diapers are getting too small.
Robin was baptized today at Holy Cross. His godparents are Rick and Christine Ruppel. Robin was amazingly well behaved at his first church service, other than some poorly timed bodily function noise. After the ceremony, we returned to our house for a nice lunch of spaghetti, salads and cake with ice cream.
Our governor (and apparently all of his aides) really is out of touch.
And, kids, if you are going to play with acetylene and balloons, don’t dispense the gas from the bottle and then transport the balloon in a car. There’s a reason it should only be transported in an approved container on a properly placarded and licensed vehicle.
Having time between awake times of Robin leads to doing some long put off tasks, like trimming down the unruly houseplants.
Alisha has had both of these plants since sometime in college. They were in a single pot purchased from a grocery store, I believe. We’ve been meaning to trim them for quite some time, but it’s been interesting watching them grow out of control.

Huh, there’s actually a window in my office behind that plant?
As promised, some awake pictures.
He’s practicing his Mr. Burns impression. Eventually the fingers will actually tent and drum together.
Not so pleased, but glad to be awake and on camera.
And, since some have asked:
- Next doctors appointment is the 1 month checkup, end of the month.
- He’s starting to fill in, haven’t been anywhere to do an official weighing but he’s eating well enough to be gaining weight.
- Mom is doing just fine, she has a checkup appointment next week.
- We’re all sleeping well, just not for long periods.
Babys seem like relative magnets. Alisha’s parents came to visit last Wednesday, cooked us a nice dinner, held Robin and headed home. I wish I would have gotten some pictures, but I really didn’t think about it at the time.
My parents came by for a short visit on Thursday. They held Robin for awhile and headed out for dinner.
