Submitted for your perusal.

Niblet versus the round-edged end table. Guess who won that match?

2.9 (number of years we managed without a visit to the emergency room)

Not to worry; the scar is already fading. And tough guy here got over it quick. (Certainly faster than his parents did!)

Meet Silas Ford. But you can call him R2.

6 (days of start/stop early labor)

21.25 (hours of actual labor)

5 (estimated number of weeks I had left in the pregnancy when I hired the Best Doula Ever)

1 (Best Doula Ever; if you find yourself pregnant in Duluth, Minnesota, you should give her a call!)

1 (ugly but successful VBAC; if you don’t already know what that is, you probably don’t want to so I’ll skip the details)

8.7 (R2’s initial weight in pounds)

21.5 (R2’s initial length in inches)

477 (approximate number of jokes told in the delivery room; by the end, the nurses were referring to us as the Comedy Hour)

Squish!
285.333 (approximate number of times R2 here eats in a day)

2 (days of preschool so far)

1 (the only “first day of school” photo of Niblet because mom was busy doing the ugly cry all day; first day of preschool plus two weeks postpartum… you can imagine how that went)

His teachers said he only cried for the first ninety minutes, which is apparently pretty normal on the first day. That also means that he cried less that day than his mother.

1 (number of nekkid-baby photos I’ve taken this month)

Brothers, day one
Didn’t specify which baby, did I? Whoops.

Adding all these things up to count my blessings today…

Who am I kidding? Nobody can count that high.

Handsome guys

  1. Yes, they are cute. Cutest guys on earth. Look at those eyes, you could just eat them for lunch. Hope the little one likes the ladies, at least for awhile. Nolan is a man’s man. Besides weighting that of a hockey player, he won’t hold still and won’t be held for long by any female. At least till he is 16 or so.
