José Jones Turns Two

We've been spending an awful lot of time on Joaquín-related posts and I'm starting to feel guilty. The old baby turned two and we had a really nice time celebrating him and his accomplishments over a groovy chocolate cake that his Nana made him. We made the cake last all week so we could share with Fat Daddy when he arrived from Buffalo. Here's the cake and the baby, too.

Little Joaquin is home and eating like a champ. His belly button is
shaping up too.

Ms. A is napping, recovering nicely, and I'm here with Joaquin in my
arms, the late morning sun streaming through the window. I'm in love
with this family I have.

Joaquin Miguel

Joaquin Miguel arrived (finally) yesterday at 7:08 p.m. He weighed 8.5 pounds and measured 20.5 inches. He is in every way exceptional. (Para nuestros fieles lectores españoles, Joaquín pesó 3.855 kilos.)

Ms. A is doing well, resting and breast feeding.

We think we can expect this baby today or tomorrow.

Please God Let This Be the Last OB Appointment

This cloud formation suggests that perhaps today is the day...

Honest to God: We saw this cloud formation as we rounded the corner
down the street just now.

Stuff We Did Last Week and Stuff that Happened to Me Last Week

On Wednesday Bridget and Tom and Mateo came over with a delicious lasagna. We had a really nice time. Mateo and I practiced our fake smiles.

Perhaps most worthy of note was the head-long spill I took off the back of my stroller on Thursday. Here I am at the emergency room, waiting to get my five stitches:

That's my fake smile, by the way.

We had to wait a long time for the doctor to show. Two hours of waiting inspired me to take a nap.

When the doctor finally arrived, my mom had to hold my legs, my dad held my head, and the nurses swaddled my arms with a sheet while the doctor put five sutures in my forehead. That sucked.
This is what I looked like when I got home and got changed into clean clothes.

But soon I was okay. We went to Lowe's on Friday and practiced our tongue rolling. We also bought a lot of building materials for the big home project: replacing four windows on the south side of the house.

Gary and Dad worked very hard on demolition and installation of the windows, even while it rained:

That's Gary under the tarp, cutting trim with his laser sighted miter saw.
