So, there is this cat, which was fluffy and orange and had a red satin ribbon collar when he picked it out from his aunt's pile of long lost stuffed animals when he was 9 months old. The kitty and the thumb definitely go together. His approaching third birthday has got us long can we let this go on? 

Name that color

If her eye color were a crayon, what would the name be? At first, she had deep blue eyes...which morphed into a deep aqua. Now, I can't name this blue-green-grey-aqua-hazel color. Any ideas? She's gonna have a heck of a time choosing one for her driver's license.

Welcome, Cian Patrick

Well, my Lake City buddy Amy Jo brought forth a beautiful baby boy early last Saturday morning. Cian (pronounced Kee-an) was born at home after a long difficult labor and weighed 7 pounds. His Irish daddy, "Lucky", was a great labor partner. I was blessed to be able to attend the birth along with two midwives. What an amazing process. I'm proud of my friends for their hard work and commitment to natural birth.

Here's a few photos of our growing girl. She is almost 17 months, is trying to potty train, and can hold her own against a much bigger brother. I think she'll grow into her purple jacket in a month or so, but right now the hood is a little ridiculous.
