Big boy

It kind of looks like I pasted a giant head on Asher's body here.
But he wanted to show off how strong his neck muscles are, so I am posting this pic anyway.

We went to Asher's 2-month check up last week. His weight is in the 95 percentile at 14 lbs. He is 24 inches long (90th percentile) and, despite this picture, his head is in the measly 75th percentile.

tuckered out

I came upstairs to check on ava (she watching her youtube videos) and this is what I found. Having a new brother is exhausting.

table talk

Ryan's table was featured here in Moco Loco's weekly roundup. I think it's a compliment to Ryan that the table was considered by them to be one of the highlights of the past week. I wouldn't know anything about this, but Ryan was honored that his name was in the same paragraph as Ross Lovegrove.

And, less exciting news, Lowes can really match anything for custom paint colors.

behold, our kitchen wall.
We need you, Nate Berkus.

Ryan's website launched earlier this week at

He submitted his table to, a modern and contemporary design blog, and they posted it here.

And yes, it's a table and not a bench. However, it can hold the weight of our entire family.

You're the one for me, fatty

Thought you all might like to know ASher's latest weigh-in results. At 5.5 weeks:

13 lbs.

I don't have very good records, but I am guessing ava was around 6 months when she hit 13 lbs, judging from the sporadic records I do have.

And, just for fun, here is a picture of AVA's hair as a newborn...everybody keeps asking if she had as much as asher. I'd say YES!
