And so we had pork...

Wednesday night I made a dinner of roast beef and roasted potatoes, and in doing so, I seared all the pads on the fingertips of my right hand on a white-hot handle of a frying pan.

After thawing out an entire pork tenderloin with my burned hand, I eventually went to bed with my hand in a bag of frozen chicken parts. Remind me to get a refrigerator with an ice machine. Please.

The next day Maggie flipped over face first, upside down, into the ladder on her bunk bed. I expected her to come up with broken teeth, but she just had a bump on her forehead.

Just in case any of you were questioning the importance of health insurance. We are poster children.

Last night, we ate pork.

Welcome to the World, Baby Ben

"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
Martin Luther King Jr.
Benjamin James arrived on September 21st, very very early in the morning.
He's a big boy, weighing in at 9 pounds 7 ounces at birth, and is now past a whopping 10 pounds.
No wonder I was so tired all the time. Lugging this kid around!
Now if only we can get him to sleep for 3 consecutive hours with some regularity...
We are over the moon, though. He is a peach. We think he is the cutest thing ever. Even with the not sleeping and all. And much to the disbeleif of my entire family, he is indeed a boy. After his face, it was the first thing we checked.
The blog posts shall resume with some regularity from this point on.
It was a long summer that included a new job, a very tired, very large pregnant lady, and a lot of long, hot days.
Hope you are all well!
