Superman Throws Down On Batman

I really want to make a No Gang Signs reference, but that jumps from DC to Marvel, sooo.

Shortly after this, Harper decided to put on Quinn’s footie pajamas. It was homage to Chris Farley. Hilarity ensued. As I tried to snag a photo, she fell down and Claire literally slid in for a photobomb.

My kids are coming into their own styles of humor and I love it. Proud papa.

Just The Calm

Not quite two weeks in and this picture is a good example of Quinn. She’s easy so far. Granted, she seems to think night is day. But, well. That isn’t so bad.

Honestly, there’s a not insignificant number of times that I’ve forgotten we’ve got the third baby in the house because she plays it so cool. Maybe there is no storm coming with this one. Maybe we should go for four. Maybe that’s the sleep dep talking and I should go to bed. Pay no attention to the man behind the blog. I SAID PAY NO ATTENTION.

“I’m The Boss!”


Claire is turning in to quite the mimic. We’ve been watching DC Cupcakes and Cake Boss as a family show. The girls have been enjoying it because, well. Cake.

Yesterday, Claire randomly pulled out the “I’m Buddy, I’m the Boss” line. She’s developing quite the comic arsenal. While I was writing this she was using her magic wand to spell her family into jungle animals. Danielle asked her who was the King of the Jungle and Claire immediately said “I am.”

SOOO. We’re either doing something very right or very wrong.

Do You Wanna Dance?

Claire asked Harper to dance. And it wasn’t to a Frozen song. You guys. I love that movie and I love Idina Menzel. I can’t stress that do much. It’s my second favorite Disney movie at this point.

I love that my kids know all the words to the song. Claire can sing the whole thing without a track. Harper even knows when to shout “Let it go”. It’s wonderful. But, well. Basically see here.

Things are continuing. People are healthy. We are all tired. That’s really all I can say definitively about that.

Hold Up A Second, Gotta Check My Twitters

HA! I just saw this on the photo stream as it played on the Apple TV. This is one that the hospital staff snapped for us. I’m actually checking this picture:

I wanted to make sure it came out clear enough to read! You definitely can’t ask for a do over on those. For example, there’s a photo I wanted to recreate from Harper’s birth. But, it’s outside the hospital. I’m just going to go back there one of these weekends and grab the picture. Can’t go back into a surgery for just like one picture people come on.

Settling In For The Long Haul

Okay. Here we go. Do a good job.

For the record, I don’t think we’re feeling any additional pressure than we felt when we brought Harper home. For the additional record, we sort of thought about this a lot before we undertook it. We’ve got known knowns and known unknowns to prepare for. And there is the dreaded unknown unknowns, of course. But, hey. Mission Accomplished! Our exit strategy is _________.

In all seriousness, things are going well so far. Quinn is, so far, a good eater and a content baby. I think things will continue to go well until the first round of disease. Inshallah, that will be after Danielle is back to 100%. Or, at least, a working parent with three kids version of 100%.

As for me, I’m on baby leave for awhile yet. So. The reclaiming of our housing space projects will continue for the immediate future. Also, hopefully, the blog posts will continue with more frequent regularity. Otherwise, I’ll be super bush with the family. Because, you know. We’re an expanding enterprise. And that takes some care and concern to pull off.>
