What the Hell, You Deserve This

Last night actually wasn’t a bad sleep night.  And Milly is doing quite well, according to her two-week checkup.  She’s put on a little over a pound in the last two weeks (not a huge surprise given how much she suckles the teat) and she’s in about the 75th percentile for her height, but about 50th for her weight, meaning she’s a long, skinny thing.  That said, we don’t expect her to be tall most of her life. I surfed with Michael this afternoon.  He’s been out every day since last Friday, and I don’t mind saying I’m a little jealous of that.  That’s what happens when you have a regular-hours job and a new baby though. Lars showed up …

Jackson’s First Comic Book (and Bookmark)

We slept okay last night.  There have been better nights and there have been worse. Amanda was craving some meat for a late lunch today.  I was going to go by Cookout finally (there are always hugely long lines and it’s in an inconvenient place, but I’ve been wanting to go there), but before I left she decided she wanted some KFC so I went there instead.  We both got popcorn chicken, but Amanda got it with BBQ sauce on it.  Yummy stuff, either way. On the way out of the driveway I thought of myself as a hunter-gatherer of old, going out to find meat to provide for my family back home in the cave. My family was still …

Milly’s First Booger

Yes, we spotted Milly’s first booger today.  It was very small and it was up the right nostril of her perfect little nose.  We left it there and, like with her detached umbilical cord, decided not to put it in a scrapbook. Amanda went to bed at a little after 8:00 last night along with Milly.  I think she’s starting to try to go to bed at generally the same time we get the Millster to go down.  She (the baby, not the wife) slept really well until early in the morning, after which time she didn’t want to sleep very easily, so it was a mixed night as far as sleep went. Work was stressful today.  On top of …

Family Surfing

I worked a little bit today, but I got everything done pretty early so I could spend some time with my family.Mom, my youngest sister Andra Sawyer and her two kids, Jackson and Addison.  They got here last night and stayed with my brother, Adam Dotsey, who also came over eventually, so as not to disturb Milly with a four year old boy running around.  Of course, I offered to have them all stay here. For a while we just sat around and visited.  I did some work here and there and Jackson and Mom played Little Big Planet for a while.   I was surprised how much fun Mom was having with the game. Amanda had a dental appointment, so …

Milly’s First Bath Without an Umbilical Cord

Amanda, Karen and I went to the 8:30 service at Port City Community Church this morning.  As with last week we got up at 6:00 (or Amanda did, anyway) to do it.  Regardless, we were able to pull it off, which is great.  We really like going to the 8:30 service.  In a few months when they go to four services we’ll go to the 9:00 (services will be at 9:00, 11:00, 4:00 and 6:00), so then we’ll at least get to sleep in a little bit more. Milly slept through all the loud music but got fidgety when the sermon began so I took her out of the main auditorium and watched the message in the hall, where she …
