Two Month Visit

Well today Benjamin had his two month visit at the doctors office…this is the one I have been dreading! He now weighs 13 lbs 9 oz and is 22.5 ins long…..he is getting big! The first part of the visit went very well: he is doing great for his age and following his growth curve…

Credit Worthy (again)

The final major hurdle to normal life in the USA for us has been credit. We don’t need credit, or particularly want it, but there’s a limit to what you can do without it. Without a credit history, cell phones are more expensive (if you buy them from a store, but really who does that?),…

The Clock Says its 9:25…

But my body is pretty sure that’s 2 hours slow. VPT: tubing would have been fun, but I don’t think it woulda been as much fun as a giant hour long snow ball fight in snow up to my knees… You guys rock!

Colic… awesome…

Limp Home Mode

If I’d known about this, it might have been easier to understand what was going on with our car. Despite Nic, and her dad’s, best efforts, the SUV is still out of action. We’d hoped that a little driving around would warm it up and resolve whatever issue it was working through, so we drove…

The Wise Family Traveling Circus

We got in the car at about 9:00 last Thursday morning, for our 8 hour drive home, without a clue of what to expect from Benjamin. Nic prepared us for almost anything, packed us a lunch in case we couldn’t stop, and had cash on hand in case we had to stop, but it turns…

Snow Day No. 2

Can you believe that’s my car? I parked there only 4 hours before this picture was taken…
