Believe me, these are harder to take than you would think! Getting Finn to not make a funny face and Cormac to look forward is quite a trick. And don't get me started on mommy's slackjaw.

This is the look Cormac gave me when I walked into the room. Kind of like, "Hey! There's that nice lady who feeds me! Hi, lady!"

mama and the boys
I've resisted putting these photos up because, sheesh! Could I look more haggard? In my defense, you try getting up three to four times a night for five months and see how great you look. And at least they more than compensate for my lack of cuteness. But my mom has been requesting photos of me and the boys. I'm hoping to rebound fabulously this spring, losing the remaining baby weight and shedding the other post-partum indignities (like breakouts). But for now, these photos will have to do.

First of all, what a big boy! I seriously can't get over how big he looks in this photo.
* [Pointing at my eyelashes] "Mama, what do you call those? Eyewhiskers?"
* [When giving Shawn and I presents] "These are for people who have hands and aren't babies who live with us." (In other words, not Santos or Cormac.)
* "When people are married, why do they kiss more slowly?"
* "I told my brain to dream about Nataly last night, but instead I dreamed about ice cream machines."
* Finn: "So, first I'm a baby, then a kid, then a big kid, then a teenager, then a grown-up, then a daddy, right?"
Me: "That's pretty much it. But I don't want you to grow up, because you won't want to cuddle with me anymore!"
Finn, very serious: "Oh, mama. I will always want to cuddle with you."

Welcome, Kate Amelia Baggerman!
There's another Baggerman in the world! Clint and Susan and big sister Anna welcomed Kate Amelia on Friday. She was born weighing about 8lbs, 14oz., which is surely at least half just hair. I mean, look at it all! Cormac is going to be so envious.
Everyone is now happy, healthy and home!

Grandma and Grandpa Baggerman visit
We were very lucky to have Grandma and Grandpa ("Papa") visit us last weekend. Finn was so excited he could barely stand it, and I think they both got more than their dose of Oswald on Noggin and reading Richard Scarry books. Cormac approved with his characteristic smiles and coos. All in all, a great visit.

Cormac is really gettin' good at rolling over and is starting to like hanging out on his belly.
Yeah, yeah. Big boys do it all the time...

Our big little man is gettin' bigger.
In honor of the occasion, I finally made him his own logo...
