Catching up, plus some gratuitous baby photos

Well, in the midst of all this baby stuff, we went from flooding, to blizzard, back to flooding. With a bridge out and several roads closed due to flooding, we had an interesting time finding an open route back to our house from the hospital. (Luckily, it's nice now, and everything's drying out.)

Here's the old steel bridge near our house. You can see the concrete walls that normally mark the edges of this river:


And here's what it looked like from on the bridge. You can see the tree lines that grow on either bank:


We went to the hospital on Tuesday night last week. Here's the note from Amelia's teacher from the next day:
Amelia was sad on Wednesday. She held pictures of Mom and Dad and played in [dried] beans. That helped somewhat, but it was a sad day for her.

And when she went back to school on Monday, after we came home:
Amelia is very happy today!
Congratulations!
Thanks for sharing O.N.'s picture.
Amelia liked sharing it at Circle Time.
So, Amelia, how happy are you to have Mom & Dad home again?

So, e5, how do you like having a new baby brother?

So, O.N., what do you think about your big brother's reaction?


Okay, a few more baby photos, just because...




Updated: How could I forget?? Word to the wise: Do not contract food poisoning when you have a six-day-old baby. Especially not when said baby is insatiably hungry, and his mother has been up all night with him. Puking in a bucket at 3am while simultaneously, um, evacuating the opposite end of the plumbing is bad enough under any circumstance. Under those particular conditions, my wife and I were no match for the children. Thanks to my mother-in-law for riding to our rescue.

Oh boy, Edson - I'm so sorry. The only worse thing I can imagine (ok, I don't have to imagine) is getting food poisoning when you are 2 months pregnant and already throwing up constantly *and* nursing a baby - can you say "too many ways for fluid to go out and not enough coming in!" My sympathies! And thank G-d for grandmas!

All three of your children are gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! And I'm glad Amelia is happy again.

Are you going to tell us the actual name?
