What will they think of next?

It seems hard to fathom some of the things that you can do because of technology advances. Take for instance, today we took Cailee to visit her great grandmother and I was able to use my iPhone to take a picture, email it to several family members, plus add it to my Facebook profile (don’t…

Bugs be gone

For peace of mind we finally called in the big guns yesterday. Certainly not an expense I expected to incur just a few days after bringing a newborn home and just hours into the fall season when the cold weather should be enough to get rid of the creepy crawly bugs – but since we…

A designer who can’t decide on a design

How sad is it to be a graphic designer by trade and yet I can’t decide on which design I like the best. Maybe its the fact that to me this may be only a small memento but it introduces such a significant time in our lives. It has to be a design that reflects…

Baby arrives, a bit like IKE

So I have been a little slack in updating everyone with the latest news around our house. Under the circumstances I am sure you can understand. We welcomed Cailee Jaymes officially on Friday, September 12th. It was perfect timing – just past the 11th and one day shy of the 13th and only one day…

I can’t sleep…

And its not why you would think. Its not because of the baby, even though enough of you have asked that very question… But since the baby will be the cause of many sleepless nights in the future, I will spare her the blame just this once. I mean the reality can’t be ignored –…

Video:: Through the years…

Here is a great video that Emily had put together for the diaper shower. Enjoy! PS. JJ’s dad will be thrilled to know that YouTube selected the random 80’s haircut picture as the backdrop for this video. I think that was his favorite.
