Monday through Friday

I have to finish journaling this so I can write about NEW stuff. Monday, October 16: Not much happened this day. Max had to go to South Station to pick up the car.

Nine Months

At 9 months, Jack is meeting pretty much all of the milestones listed in What to Expect the First Year. He’s figured out the “If I drop it, it still exists and Mommy and Daddy will pick it up for me” game. He does not crawl, but he does creep, schooch, and roll himself all … Continue reading

Saturday, October 7, 2006. We left Jack with Joanne and Marc and began the drive to Ben & … Continue reading

We went to Ben & Shawna’s wedding (beautiful and fun!) and had Jack’s Dedication Ceremony (woefully last minute, thanks to me). I have been to … Continue reading
