Ten on Tuesday

1. Wallis thinks that I should make Yo Gabba Gabba outfits for the concert this fall. I think he has forgotten who he married. Sew? Really? I tried to explain that my love for Project Runway has nothing to do with my abilities to make clothes.

2. My neighbor gave my Flex it's first boo-boo (he backed into my parked car). If only a band-aid would fix it. $1200 and 2 1/2 days later it will be all better.

3. This led me to thinking that the next time I buy a new car, Kelsea will most likely be starting high school and Lorelei middle school. Kind of a frightening thought.

4. In less than 24 hours the kids will be at Grandma and Grandpa's, and in less than 48 hours I will be laying at Wrightsville Beach reading a book, a real book!

5. The thought of leaving L.A. at 1:00 am doesn't even make me flinch, because we won't be traveling with car seats, pack n' plays or diaper bags.

6. And in case you are wondering why we are spending 4 days in North Carolina (sans kids), our friend Brian is getting married. Here he is with Lorelei last August! Oh, where did those thighs go?

7. Has anyone else started Christmas shopping?

8. Since some of you have asked where's the picture of me holding my nephew.... (not such a great picture of me, but look how cute Ben is)!
9. Blissfully three
10. And although I took a couple darling photos of Ben on Saturday, I have to find out from his parents if any of them will be used in their announcement before posting. So I'll leave you with his tiny little feet instead.

Welcoming Baby Ben

Jennie got the most precious Birthday gift this afternoon, her beautiful son Benjamin Daniel Love.
7 pounds, 12 ounces & 21 inches long
The first diaper (with oh so many more to come!)
Time to get footprints made. They also did them on Daddy's t-shirt. Pretty cool memento!
Getting to know his Daddy
Grandpa Steve, holding his first grandson!
Grandpa Dan meeting his very first grandchild! Just delighted!
Searching for his thumb and he was quite happy when he found it!
First yawn (or at least the first one I got on camera)
And now two becomes three. I think they are pretty happy.
Happy Birthday Jennie & Baby Ben! We love you!
