WHICH ONES?

just wondering.

NIGHTTIME SWEET TIME

FIRST MILK FROM A BOTTLE: A SUCCESS!


p.s. the boob is still huck's a-no.1 milk provider, but this will prepare him for when i go back to work. so sweet to see the boys like this, no?

UM, ABOUT THE UPCOMING VIDEOS

i know that these videos are embarrassingly poor quality. and that they have some weird stripe along the side. i'm so sorry. it's temporary. we're getting a flip mino so they will be much better soon. they are mostly up here for his vovo. she said she doesn't much care about the quality, she just wants to see him in action. so here you go, mae, these are for you.

THE FAMILY RANCH

linda hussa's book that chronicles western ranching families has finally been released, and not only is todd's sister tami and her family on the cover, but their story is featured inside. we've been excited about this book for a while, and we can't wait to see it all bound, in print, and on the shelves!



from left to right is grace, dave, reuben, tami, and isabel. elsie wasn't yet born when this photo was taken -- and tami certainly wasn't pregnant with the little one that is currently in her belly -- but together with the five of them above, they make the cutest, most amazing family in the west.

p.s. you can go here to read a synopsis or even purchase the book:
The Family Ranch: Land, Children, and Tradition in the American West

SMILE

in addition to seeing 'slumdog millionaire,' we also watched this documentary this weekend. again, we think it's a must see.


and if you don't have the album, you should get it. and todd says you should get 'pet sounds' too. for good measure.

FOREST PARK

WHISTLIN'

ok. try this: play andrew bird's 'first song' in the sidebar to the right, and then look at this picture again.

LOOK! IT'S A TURTLE ON A LOG

UHH . . . DAILY PHOTO_JAN 24

so i guess this is what happens when you ask todd to take huck's daily photo for you. don't worry, it's just a wooden prop from todd's halloween costume. but still, geez.

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

if you haven't done it already,
you should really see this movie.
pretty please.
you won't be sorry.

HUCK'S TOP 3

MUSIC is huck's third favorite thing.

BATH TIME is his second favorite.

BABY JAYDE

well it turns out that rachel wasn't the only one with a birthday yesterday. little baby jayde was born at 10:23 last night! she weighed 8lbs. 12oz. (just like huck) and her head was 37 cm around (just like huck!). talia and richie did a great job and taunia got to witness the whole thing. grandma b went down this morning and everyone is quite jealous that she gets to hold and kiss the newest addition. cousin no. 10, welcome to the family!
