get me some heat up in here!

we're not trying to freeze our newborn child, but the furnace is on its last legs, and must be inspected Wednesday. Trouble is, it's supposed to dip below 40 tonight... so Red is getting his very own little heater in his room until the furnace is back in commission. Just to be sure he's warm though, this is how he'll dress indoors until then. (ps - send up a prayer that our home warranty will cover our 37 year old furnace!)

RMG is one month old

as you can see, Red has put on some incredible weight, and he is primarily carrying it in his cheeks.

this is the most peaceful he gets... prefers sleeping with one of us on the daybed rather than in his crib all alone... we are REALLY not trying to promote this.

our little bean all tuckered out from another long night keeping mom on her toes...

happy birthday momma...

after a very long night as a new mother, and just a few hours after officially turning 26, my son decided to give me a very cute birthday surprise. Not only peeing everywhere from the perch of his changing pad, but when i picked him up to clean it off and give the diaper change a second go, he decided to pee all down the front of me.

I love it. As you can see from this picture, at three weeks and 26 years respectively, he is definitely getting the better of me.

Disclaimer: The ensemble worn in this picture is the result of sleepless nights, and blind pajama decisions at 3am when i am cold. Please give me a break. I'm exhausted.

red marshall

our son arrived sept. 28, 2007 at 10:21pm. He weighed in at 7lbs, 2oz and measured 21 inches long. we really, really like him... so much so that we've almost forgotten to share him with you all because we've been enjoying him - and he does keep us busy.

right now he's working real hard at his tenth day of life - napping before his second lunch so i better go rest too. Here are a few shots of his first week for you to enjoy. Hopefully i can share lake pictures too soon. (We took him to meet his six older cousins this weekend - it was complete mayhem! he loved it.)

For those of you who are interested, here's a little background on his name: Floyd's grandfather had two brothers, Red and James Marshall. W.F. "Red" Gibbs is floyd's great uncle, and namesake... the original W.F. Gibbs... but has been called Red for his entire 93 years of life. James Marshall passed away five years ago, and was greatly admired by my floyd. So there you have it.

ps - yes, his hair is red.
