Now THAT'S a To-MAY-to!

Out with the Summer, in with the Autumn

We got invited to Shawn and Janet's End of Summer Party like we did last year. The weather was just about identical - clear blue skies (after a rainy dreary morning) and that pre-autumn chill at dusk. And about a billion kiddos running amok. Sam took a few minutes to warm up to the scene, but once he made his way up the ladder and down the slide, he was at it all day with the other kids. A really nice time. Good eats, good drinks (ah, a BEER! - or two.) and good company. Got to see my friends Bill and Kerry from college. Unfortunately, Ron had to work. A nice day!

Bound and Determined

Sam reached into the bassinette where we keep Tom during the day, downstairs, and grabbed his little knitted hat he got at the hospital. You know the one - some old ladies spend all their waking hours at nursing homes making these little hats for newborns! They are CUTE. Sam started to pull it on his head. I said, "NO no Sam - that's for Tom. It's way too small for your head. Put it back." So he did (wow!). I went about things. Two minutes later, i hear, "Mom?... Mom?... Look." I turn around. He's got another one (from when he was a baby, actually, that i had on top of a pile of little newborn hats/caps) pulled TIGHT over his head! "See? Me pull it over - not too SMALL!" I laughed so hard. I thought he looked like some dude from the hood. Beyond that, it really accentuates the SIZE of his head, clearly still not proportional to his body. Whatta goof. I started to tell him he'll stretch it out, but it was just too funny to bother. That can be his little 'THING' he does now...

Mommy, Tommy, Sammy!!!

(Again, this last pic reminds me of a photo taken with Sam when he was really young... the resemblance is really uncanny, imo.)

Excuse me, young man- have you seen my 2-yr.-old?

Ah, a Resemblance Already...

When i snapped this picture of Ron and Tom (left) last night, i was reminded of a similar photo i snapped of Ron and Sam when Sam was only a couple weeks old.
Do you see the resemblance? I do. Check out their mouths.
Watch Tom be a little twin of Sam...

I'm Ready

Okay people... s'bout time Bun make an appearance. The time and date are set - this Tuesday, 12noon, repeat c-section. Let's get this show on the road.

Oh yeah... we are soliciting name ideas. We were all set with Samson by this time; not so much this go-round. The winner will get a private pat on the back, but zero acknowledgement publicly (ha!).
