Miles Smiles

Here is Miles' first photo smiling. I still can't get him to smile when he sees me, but he is always pretty happy after eating.
The other picture is of Scooter getting tired of always having to wait his turn.

Spring is springing

Ahh...Springtime in Seattle.

Spring has always been my favorite season of the year. There's so much hope in the air, things are coming back to life, the days are getting longer, and supposedly the air gets warmer. Plus, my birthday is in April...which may have a lot to do with it.

Our tulips are popping up and the poppies are blooming - all good signs that this long, cold, dark, and wet winter is finally coming to an end. I can't wait for the tulips to bloom and the mornings to be warm enough that I can comfortably wait for the bus on Lake City Way without freezing to death. Mostly, I hope that all the anxiety and worry about our economy starts to thaw away with the warmer days. Maybe some nice warm, sunny weather will help put things back into perspective for everyone.

Update on our lives

I guess it has been awhile since one of us last posted. Since then, family has come and gone and I am on my third week of caring for an infant on my own during the day. I'm pleased to say that he is still alive. Since birth, he has grown two inches and gained nearly three pounds. Here are some pictures.

This picture looks like he is caught in a psychadelic prison

Here are the shoes I made for Miles. They finally fit.

This is right after a bath. Notice the formula drool. Miles loves to be messy
