… we’re still waiting for the “made glorious” part.

Doctor's orders

Long eyelashes don't, apparently, protect against the common cold

Ben and Pru (and at least one of their parents) are sick with the winter cold that just won’t die.  It’s not terrible, but it is annoying enough to keep all of us up and to make sleep hard to catch.  (Let me editorialize here and say, “Boooo!”)

This morning, Ben went to the doctor for his 6-month check-up.  All’s well for our boy besides the cold.  Stats for those keeping score:

Weight:  17 lb. 14 oz. (50th percentile)

Length:  28 in. (91st percentile)

Head circumference :  44.5 cm (75th percentile)

New PruTube

There are several new videos up on Prutube.  They document Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the holidays in between (and a few that happen after as well).  We are quite behind in our documentary updates, clearly.   Happy viewing!

Pru had a check up this morning.  Everything went smoothly aside from the measurement-taking and the vaccination-giving.   Fortunately, cookies still work as a ameliorative gesture:

Pictures are nice but we know why you are all here — you want measurements.  Without delay:

Height: 32.0  in (90th percentile)
Weight:  22 lb 14 oz (50th percentile)
Head circumference:   47.5 cm (90th percentile)

Doctor, Doctor

A check-up to start her second year?  No problem, Pru says.

Halloween has come and gone, and Dwyeropolis is still laden-down with sweet, sweet candy.  We may have slightly overestimated the number of trick-or-treaters who would brighten (or darken?) our lintel.  And by “slightly”, I mean “by an order of magnitude”.  So, the bleak loneliness of my existence has been laid bare.  But on the plus side, more candy corn for me! I suppose that what you’re actually interested in is pictures of the Pru-bear in her Halloween costume, rather than my Werner Herzog-esque whining about the endless dissappointments that life brings our way.  And so, without da further a-do: (more…)

As a gift, we gave Pru a visit to her new pediatrician.  We even threw in some vaccinations – for free!  We are generous and wonderful parents.  The relevant stats (and a picture or two) are below the fold:

Height: 30.25  inches (96th percentile)
Weight:  22 lb 14 oz (89th percentile)
Head circumference: 46 cm (87th percentile)

Pru spent the whole visit trying to pull the cotton ball out from beneath the bandaid.  She succeeded in getting long strands of cotton which she then daintily put into her mouth.  Her father was amused; her mother was disgusted.  I thought I left those things behind in Texas!

And a bonus, just for sitting through that really lame abstracted pun:

Shes a stander

Some Independence Day fun:

Visors are awesome.

Watch out Williamsburg:  there’s a new hipster in town, and she’s armed with an appropriately vintage hoodie (and a love of the oeuvre of Wes Anderson):

If they had a QB named Fran, why not Pru?

The hoodie in question used to be Sarah’s from when she was a baby:

As today is Father’s Day, I will provide an interesting piece of patriarchal trivia:  Did you know that Ronald Reagan was the last U.S. president to not be named after either his father or his grandfather?

George H. W. Bush was named after his maternal grandfather, George Herbert Walker.

William Jefferson Clinton was named after his birth father, William Jefferson Blythe, Jr.

George W. Bush, though not a junior, was clearly named after his father, George H. W. Bush.

(Reagan is also the last president whose father doesn’t have his own Wikipedia page.  Coincidence?)

Interestingly, this trend will almost certainly continue through 2008, since both major-party candidates (Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. and John Sidney McCain III) and the leading minor-party candidate (Robert Laurence Barr, Jr.) are all named after their fathers.  If you’re interested in breaking the trend, note that neither Ralph Nader or Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin are juniors.  (I wasn’t able to determine whether they’re named after their respective grandfathers.)

Since all you really come here for are cute baby pix, I have included a picture of Pru decked out in her Flag Day best after the break.
