Happy Thanksgiving

Henry & Henry sitting in command central with coffee mug and sippy cup on hand.

Dave Wells and I were marveling at Henry's accounting system: see the wall behind him.

Sorry we missed the Hagertys and the Rishes this year; but it was nice to have all of the Wells siblings, significant others and children together.

THANKS for understanding. And THANKS to Bruce for posting coverage of the Hagerty Thanksgiving.

There comes a time

There comes a time in every man's life when he has to decide whether to pull them up over his belly or push them down under.

It's a tough choice between the downward-turned belt buckle and shorty suspenders.

Big hippo



Every once in a while, when Xola is 'hipp-ing' around the living room, hip checking Henry with her 95 lb. butt, we like to remember when she fit in our coat pocket.

All too soon, there will be two 95 lb. hippos in our living room once Henry catches up to Xola's weight class.

Learning from your child

video

Henry came home from school signing "more" in baby sign language. The only reason we even picked up on it was because we saw Erin Kay and Hannah using baby sign language a while back.

Our theory is that Henry learned this at a meal time...if it worked for that kid, it should work for me. We've been reinforcing it at home, and the sign is certainly better than a yell.
