Who's on Skype?

We are a bit techno challenged here in our home....meaning...if its about 5 years old technology, we are just started to figure it out and enjoy it. So, I am just joining the ranks of SKYPE. We tried it out a few days ago with our buddies from was so neat. We could hear and see them...almost as good as being there. I am excited to connect with more friends everywhere that we cannot see in person. If you are connected, let me know...we will give you a ring=)

Merry Rip-off

Once upon a time, I had to go to the mall. And being as it were the merry season of Christmas, we happened upon Santa. There was a young lad, almost the ripe age of 4, who insisted he needed to sit with the jolly ole' man. Thus, the mother obliged. But what to my wandering eye might appear...the rip-off prices of the keepsake of this blessed event. To which we rrefused and took our own and were on our merry way, no less poor(er)...alas, with a free candy cane and a happy little lad. the end.

Joel Stats...

Do not yet own a baby book for I need to keep landmarks for his life here until I get one.

At 7 weeks: weighs in at 10 lbs 4 oz....which I thought was pretty chunky...until I talked to a friend today whose little guy is about a week younger and at last weigh-in was over 13 lbs.

Other tidbits to note. Joel started on the Dec 9th (just over 7 weeks) to socially smile and grin. He has the sweetest grin...which I have yet to catch on camera...but will. He slept thru the night 2 times this week....once from 9pm to 6 am...the other from 7pm to 4am. What a blessing. I feel partially human with a full night's rest. It makes me think he hit about 11lbs this week...which i had heard was the mark to have longer night's sleep. I don't want to jinx it...but am very excited for this to be a habit.
