A few months ago my mom brought me this dress out of my 'baby box' in her attic. It has matching plastic bloomers. It has lots of pleats and lace. It hasn't been worn since Ford was in office. I'm trying to imagine what people said when they saw me dressed in it.

And in this Corner, Weighing in At.....

Our Scale shows just a tad over 9 lbs. That puts a total gain of 2 lbs, 6 oz since she came out of the oven. That's about 10 oz per week. I was trying to put that into proportion..... If I gained that kind of weight, about 7% a week, I would be putting on a tad over 11 lbs a week. What's healthy for some is not for others.....

Waiting in Line at At said Video Rental Store

Girl (10-year-old-ish): Um, can I get by? I want to look at that movie.

Me: Sure, here you go.

Girl: Oh, it's a game, not a movie. Jackass. It's this show about these guys who do really crazy, crazy things. It's really funny, and crazy.

Me: Oh, really, wow (Because I'm obviously old and have never heard of Jackass and therefore need it explained to me).

Thanks Kid.

Best Fathers Day card EVER!

Adelaide picked it.

We've been taking more walks lately, getting used to the jogger. This morning our destination was the new Collage & DIY Lounge at our local shopping center. I think they're taking a leap, opening their doors in our not-so-avant guarde-for-Portland-besides-The Delta Woodstock neighborhood, so I'm going to try and help them thrive as often as possible.

And isn't this too cute?!

To the Circus

, originally uploaded by apkoski.

Today we went to the Cirque du Cycling, and enjoyed a bike parade, the Sprockettes, a Criterion, but not the beer garden. No, you have to be 21 to enter.
And we were gonna try out Adelaide's fake ID...

For now, and the last couple months, anyway...

Yes, Fingernails! They don't look near as impressive here as they do in person. I've almost licked it. See?

And no, I haven't just been sitting around photographing my fingers. Here's some baby love, folks.

Accomplishment for the first month:

And nursery decor:
