Welcome, Jack!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!

Announcing John ("Jack") Oliver Breitenstein, named John after father and grandfather, and Oliver meaning peace. He's weighing in at 8 lbs 12 ounces "standing" 20 3/4 inches tall.

This barrel-chested guy has thighs like a turkey leg, and huge hands! He's got bright blue eyes and a full head of dark hair, though taking in the pale brows and lashes, we might have another blondie! Taking after the whole peace (Oliver) motif, he seems pretty laid back. Jack is healthy and we're both doing great; we came home yesterday!

Thanks for all the prayers.

Losing the training wheels--!

Painting on the deck this afternoon; he and Will shared paintings a lot and had a blast. They were covered. After going to the park, we've had a great day.

Audio: "Wy-WEEEEE!"

Will's getting the hang of his scooter!

Baden all decked out in cowboy gear!

What do I say to this?

I just went up to the boys' room where they are supposed to be sleeping. However, Ramona Forever on CD was playing, and I was pretty sure I knew who'd started it. He protested:

Baden: No, when Daddy came up, I said he could start Ramona over or start the quiet CD!

Mom: Oh, okay. I'm sorry, Baden. I was wrong.

Baden: C'mon, Mom! You know the husband is in charge of the wife!!

Mom (uh, momentarily at a loss for words): [Pause] You're right. And Daddy and I act as a team. But who's still in charge of you?

Baden: You're still in charge, but the husband is the in-chargest!
