Here are some updates:
- The Sambino can roll from back to front and front to back now. He is 14 pounds and 24.5 inches. His head is enormous. The pediatrician says he's perfectly stealable. He now has a third type of carrier, an Ergo. Love it. Need to block ebay from my web browser.
- John was happy with his two quarters from the tooth fairy. A neighbor friend told him she got $5 for her first tooth and I promptly informed the both of them that that was before the recession. Clearly, John's TF is much more fiscally conservative than the one across the street.
Eight arborvitaes, two Stephens' hollies, a redbud (not pictured), and I'm not sure what that big Christmas-tree-looking thing in the middle is, but I can tell you it ain't the hemlock I requested. Something about hemlocks being a lot of trouble and I can't be expected to look after it properly what with the new baby and all. So they brought me a forsythia instead. Hmph. Well it is pretty, but the jury's still out on where to put it.
That's about all the news from these parts. If you know any good farmhands, send them our way so we can make it through the summer. And if you have knowledge of canning or have a food dehydrator for sale, we're interested in that too. I can't stand the thought of a deep freeze on my back porch, but it may come to that if we're not careful.
As always, onward, upward, and sideways.
