A few Easter pictures


Coloring Easter eggs



Just a perfect angel, isn't she?

Grocery bag of eggs in tow.

Standing on a rock showing us how big she is.


Cool helicopter moves.

Watching Caillou with Grandpa


The first time I can recall Carolyn actually sitting with him.

Slideshow: North Carolina, March 2011


Kristen is in the process of interviewing for a fellowship, so we all took a road trip down to North Carolina for a few days. Carolyn was surprisingly well-behaved in the car, and throughout the week really. We had a lot of fun and took some pictures too:

Like parent, like daughter





Carolyn draws a penguin



And in case you're wondering, the outline around the penguin is a walrus. According to Carolyn, the penguin was inside the walrus.

It's a boy!



We had the 20-week growth scan on Monday and found out that the new baby will in fact be a boy, despite the inclinations of myself, Kristen and Carolyn. Of course, we're thrilled (as we would have been with another girl for that matter).

The baby's name will be William Christopher, and we've all already sort of taken to calling him Liam (though Dosito is also still in regular use).

I suppose I've got to change the color scheme on this blog a little bit now.
