This photo was taken in July 2007, so Elliot is three or so weeks old. Was it Elliot? Maybe Mike remembers.

I think it was the first time they were separated, although Elliot was being watched by nurses about 2 hours after being born for about [forever] half an hour?

Oddly, lots of details are a touch hazy around this time period.

This was the first time Mike wore a baby, and I am glad I snapped a photo against his wishes. What a little baby that was! Can you imagine what a sight that must have been? If only I could rewind time and relive life in five minute chunks [handpicked by me, of course].

Painting Pumpkins

We went to the pumpkin patch with Uncle Alex, Uncle Seth and Auntie Daphne. Henry and Elliot are not yet to be trusted with knives, but they were very pleased to paint their pumpkins. Later the grown-ups had squash soup and apple pie for dinner. Henry and Elliot stuck with corn on the cob. Fresh corn is the best!
