Grandma Turek would be up here so it was imperative to schedule the baptism for her visit, and it went off today perfectly and Henry did not cry at all (he saved it for picture time). Due to some scheduling changes we ended up having our baptism after mass. St Patrick's prefers doing it during mass, but an "older family in the parish" bumped us from the schedule. Sorry Henry, your family is merely hoi polloi. We'll try to work on some social climbing in time for your Communion and Confirmation.

It all worked out great though -- I'm certain he would have screamed bloody murder if he was baptized during mass.

I was hustling to get ready for work at 6 am so I did not feel the earthquake here in Anchorage. Becky did and was a bit incredulous at my missing it. Henry snoozed away in his pack and play, remaining unimpressed. Please stay this mellow, Henry.

Henry had his 2 week check up today. He is now 19 1/2 inches long and weighs 7lbs, 15oz...he's growing like a weed! His pediatrician said that he is healthy and is doing great! :o)

I also had my post-operative appointment today and my doctor said things look great. The incision is healing nicely and I've lost 25 lbs!

I'm emerging from the bunker of no sleep for a quick note. We're doing ok, which is a victory in and of itself. We have a bit of a system, have developed a 3 hour routine, and are dealing with a generally mellow baby. No complaints and if takes a turn towards Hurricane Henry in the near future, we can at least be thankful for the relative calm we have now. Henry is wonderful and the work is a joy. I believe this picture and piece of clothing (with thanks to Randy) capture the facts of the situation perfectly.
