Three posts in one day, surely we jest??

Well, Ali to the rescue. She just sent me her pictures from our NH weekend -- the annual Penn Law Wives Club gathering. So here are a few cute ones, including one with all four kids together! Hurrah!


Lots of pictures in the post below. But since some of you asked, I'll also say that yes, I had a great birthday on Sunday. Lois slept reasonably well on my birthday eve. Then my sister Resa babysat for Lois while Rob and I went out to dinner. Highly recommend Bavette's in Chicago. Delicious!

Yep. A little extra sleep and some yummy food. That, my friends, is what we call an AMAZING birthday when you have a three-month-old.

Oh, and I continue to miss marking L's milestones on this blog. Lois turned officially three month's old yesterday, July 22. Woot!

Hello again!

We've had a busy couple weeks! But if Princess Kate can get herself together just 24 hours after having a baby, I suppose I can get myself together to do a blog post, right? (As an aside, seriously Kate, is there no end to making the rest of the world look terrible? I didn't even shower for two days after having Lois and I definitely have never held my baby while walking in heels. You are such an enigma to me. But I digress....)

After the 4th of July, we went to NH to visit with Ali, Eddie & Naomi, and Sophia, Fritz, Abe & Ray. Given all the little ones, we obviously didn't take any group pictures. Damn! But we did get some cute pics of Lois:

Lois taking a nap amidst the craziness.
Lois giving Dad some smiles.

Lois and Dad at the lake. (Check out her teensy feet!)

We came back to a house full of visitors, including Great Grandma Lois:

So glad Lois and Lois finally got to meet each other!
Meanwhile, Lois is getting bigger and cuter every day:

Look people, I can almost sit up on my own... if I'm leaning against pillows.

Cheeks make a great pillow for napping.

One of Lois's many, many looks of skepticism.

Burrito Lo

Not sure I've shared this one yet. Rob created this masterpiece one night for his own amusement. 

We also made an appearance at the United Center to see the Blackhawks parade kick off!

I took a video of our view: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vzFi-VUinE&feature=youtu.be

You can search for Rob in the Patrick Kane (88) jersey taking pictures off to my left now and then. I tried to get a shot of Lois at the end. But since she was in my arms, I basically just got a shot of her arm. Ah well.
