Today in North Phoenix

Steve. . .

. . .honed his domestic skills: loading the dishwasher, making a delicious lunch of pulled pork with rice and a green salad, shopping at Sprouts, cooking sundry rices and grains for future use.
. . .played football with Da Boys.
. . .planned how he will fill his days and nights with adventure and quietude during his impending trip to the Big Apple sans wife and children.

Elliot. . .

. . .continued his love affair with his football mouthguard.
. . .spent two hours on a chore that should have taken him, oh, about ten minutes.
. . .caused his mother to reflect for the first time about a certain condition called ADD and caused his father to prescribe a diet of no processed foods, just in case.

Aaron. . .

. . .hammed it up for the camera.
. . .didn't care that he is the only boy in his Broadway "Showstoppers" singing and dancing class.
. . .asked if he could take a permanent marker and draw the Nike insignia on some of his white socks that don't have anything on them.

Isaac. . .

. . .belted out a song about Power Rangers while listening to classical music on the iPod.
. . .gave his sister about 300 kisses, when he wasn't throwing her blanket in her face.
. . .bit his brother. Or was that yesterday? It's all such a blur.

Norah. . .

. . .looked very cute in the outfit she got to wear for about half an hour, before throwing up on it.
. . .looked very cute in the next outfit she got to wear for the rest of the day.
. . .slept the day peacefully away after a long, fitful night of gassy stomach issues.

Emily. . .

. . .and Norah were the grateful recipients of this beautiful and oh-so-luxuriously-soft blanket from friends from Steve's work.
. . .took blurry pictures of members of her family.
. . .was very excited to learn that Molly, Grace, Jonah, and Owen have a brand new cousin.



What did you do?

I really love this picture of Aaron. Emily, you ought to find some way of printing out your blogs, so that we can have a family scrap book of sorts.

Cute family and CUTE blanket. Our Norahs appear to be a lot alike so far (as in ... the spitting up and the night time gassy issues). She is DARLING.

Your boys are also very sweet. Did they have dark hair like that when they were little? My daughter did but now she is as white blonde as can be.....

I didn't do anything nearly as entertaining as that darling post.
You and the Steve-o make seriously cute chillins.

I love seeing pictures of the kids! Oh, I wish I could come hold Norah and snuggle with her - what a darling little girl! Hope she sleeps better (at night) for you!

The mouth guard thing is pretty funny... as is the swoosh on the socks. :) Boys.

Congratulations on your beautiful new Norah!

Are 5 year olds already into logo recognition and keepin' up? Are you/Elliot rally going on a no processed food diet? Does Isaac really listen to the ipod sans adult supervision? What a big boy!

Norah looks so cute! She looks a little like Steve in the new blankie photo.

On second thought, you are right. I got a new nephew and that is really exciting.

Elinor said...

What a lovely family, and your Norah is absolutely worth claiming. Love her name. Hope you're doing better. All those old wives tales are unfortunately true, but babies are worth it. Congratulations. Elinor

I agree with Steve on the scrapbook. And the Aaron pic. P.S. Neil has that t-shirt and wears it frequently.
