Because with Three Boys Under Three...

...we are really going to want to encourage golf clubs in the house.

"He's a Funny Looking Guy!"

...according to Dash.

But we think he's perfect!!

It is such a special consolation to see our sweet, healthy baby boy this week as we remember losing Kolbe Francis just before Easter two years ago.

Mr. Incredible is thrilled to have a complete foresome with his boys, while I remain outnumbered by an increasing margin. He told the ultrasound tech that we could have probably used a little more estrogen around the house. The u/s tech became very grave and said, "You don't know what you are talking about. Come to my house and try to get a word in edgewise!"

He has all girls.

As we were leaving the ultrasound the frugal Mr. Incredible said, "You won't have to buy anything new!"

I hate to tell him that a gallon of pink paint would have cost $20, almost infinitely less than the cost of feeding this boy for the next 18 years if he eats anything like the first two!!

Blizzard '08

Texas was blessed with its twice a decade snowfall last night (all 3 centimeters of it)! Dash couldn't wait to get outside to build a snowman. Jack-Jack was a bit less excited about the cold, wet stuff.

Or maybe he just thinks that he looks ridiculous as an eskimo.

Our snowman was up by 7:30, which was a good thing because the snow is now gone and it is a sunny 55 degree day. I may still have to serve hot chocolate as a snack just because I never get the chance. We read one of our favorite books, Snowy Day, before naptime, but, unlike when Peter wakes up, we won't have any more snow left.
