Ladies in Red

Like the slideshow below, these pictures show Cathy (in the middle) and her two lovely daughters (Cate at Left and Eve at Right) wearing a dress that was made by Cathy's mom (AKA Gramma Jo). I have my own opinion but, who do you think is the cutest?

A Little Pool Time Video

This was what pool time looked like from our perspective. It was a lot of fun, very wet and life-threatening for the baby closest to Daddy.


Mother's Day addendum

The slideshow below showcases Cate in a red dress that was made for her Mommy (Cathy) by Cathy's Mommy (Gramma Jo). We will hopefully soon have picture of Eve in the dress for everyone to see also. Since Cate got a turn with Daddy and the camera, Jonah and Eve lined up as well. There is little significance to Eve's outfit (except that it is cute and she looks very cute in it) but the T-shirt that Jonah is wearing came from his Aunt Whitney (Thanks Aunt Whitney).

And then there was this cool little frog-shaped wading pool that the babies just had to get for Mommy for Mother's Day (I mean, what mother doesn't dream of trying to supervise three infants and a hapless Dad around a verifiable drowning hazzard). A "dream come true" it is! So, Cate, Eve and Jonah each got their first pool experience on Mother's Day 2008, and they seemed to love it.

The NINE-MONTH Check-up

April 23 came and brought with it Cate, Eve and Jonah's Nine-Month appointment with Dr. White. Simply put, they are all doing very well and growing like they are s'posed to be. So, without further ado, here are the latest stats.

Cate weighs 18lb 4oz and is now 27 3/4 inches
Eve weighs 16lb and 11oz and is now 28 inches
Jonah weighs 19lb and 5oz and is now 28 1/8 inches

So, they're big and getting bigger (as is the recommended course for babies).

More information to come...stats to be updated in late July.

Our Fourth Trip North

We left on Tuesday, April 15 when I was done with class at UCF and we headed for Ohio once again. We hoped to make it all the way there in one shot, but we chickened out somewhere in I-26 in South Carolina (AKA The State that Never Ends).

So, we arrived in Belpre on Wednesday afternoon and commenced a'vacationin'. We got to spend time with Whitney, Ryan, Hailey, Emma and Bill (the dog) and later we spent some time with Mark, Faith, Conor, Collin and Aidan...not to mention Uncle David, Aunt Leeann and Granmma Jo and Grandad. So many people and so little time.

We got to go to church in Salem and there the babies had a brief chance to see Grammy (Ruth). Sabbath and Sunday nights saw the arrival of Norman and Christina and then Uncle Dale and Aunt Janet respectively.

It was a vacation chock full of people. We enjoyed the time, but were ready to return much so that we actually drove the 15 hours straight home (the babies did really well until we hit Florida and even then did pretty well...I think Cathy and I were crankier than the babies).

That'll probably end Cate, Eve and Jonah's "road tripping" for the first year of their life. July 21 will be here before we know it and then we'll start pounding the asphalt some more.
