I will give special thanks this year to Grandmas and Grandpas! My Grandma Freeman is cruising about this Holiday and Mimi and Bobbie are trimming some kind of a Turkey no doubt. John's Grandparents are celebrating with us from above and this year as every year special mention was made of Grandma Cathy's oyster stuffing. Wish I had been there for that one!
Henry and Lucy are lucky to have some very special Grandparents too. Here's to you four!

(really need some new pictures of Tookie with the kids - remember that Aunt Meg!)

And a couple of special friends who act like Grandparents! Love you guys.

Baby Baby Shower

What fun I had working on a shower for Ali and Jessica - my two favorite sisters-in-law. How lucky I am! Wonderfully, we got to see all kinds of family and friends not seen in a while. And I am getting really excited for the babies to come (Ali in Feb and Jess in Mar) Hopefully they will let me visit and spend a few days helping them. I love a new baby - their smell, the way they have no idea what is happening but are still able to be soothed by human hands, their funny belly buttons, their tiny mouths, oh it's all good. Get ready girls, here they come!

Take Your Henry to Work Day

Mom's not feeling too hot, so Dad VERY generously offered to take Henry to work today. I'm not sure I ever packed a lunch and backpack so quickly or that either of us fully realize how cool Henry thinks this is. I'm sure we will hear "I go to work with Daddy sometimes" in his deepest cool kid voice for weeks if not years. Thank you Jack - and good luck Port Blakely!

Good Morning!

LuLu the lady...she really wants to be upright in every chair I put her in now. No more lazy babyin' around, she wants to sit!

Look at That Popo

Popo (der)
n. bottom, buttocks (Informal)

popò (m)
n. (children's language) bottom, buttocks; poo-poo, jobbies

n. buttocks, butt, backside, behind, breech, bum, can, posterior, rear, rear end

buttocks, bottom, backside, behind, rump, posterior, bum, butt, rear kýç

We borrow this term from Malia, who I think inherited it from her Grandma TuTu and time spent in Hawaii. Fun word.

And the Winner is...

...Henry. Lu Lu has been tough to give a bottle to lately, and as we'd like to get out of the house every now and then, I've been trying everything I can think of. Well, I should never underestimate the power of brotherly love.

Putt Putt Bowling...

...with the cousins. Henry so looks up to Aidan and Graham that later that night, he decided he could give up his binkie at night because they didn't use one. Thanks guys! I have to admit it made me a little sad, however good I know it is for him to be done with it. It was the last remaining thing I could offer him to soothe the baby still in him. He is becoming such a big kid...showing us this week he can even read a few words. Time to get out the "learn to read in 100 easy lessons" book I guess. He's all growns up!
