You know, I knew there was some link I wanted to post. Actually, there's quite a few, but this is "time sensitive" as all my junk mail likes to say. Kids or no kids, you must check out the Kiddie Records Project and start downloading all the amazing vintage kid's records they will be putting up (one a week) this year. I'm already amazed by the selection! I'm hoping that they somehow will have a copy of my personal favorite kid's record, which, of course, I can't even remember the name of right now (it's this very odd beatnik/jazz fairytale record, with the stories narrated by this very world-weary Susan Tyrell type -- it was one of my favorite records when I was little and I Wore. It. Out.) Anyway, bop on over and start your collection today!

how 4 weeks can seem like a year

Emily Jane is 4 weeks old today. My lord, does it seem like it's been forever. She's starting to settle into some routines -- not on a schedule or anything, but I'm beginning to be able to figure out when she'll sleep for a while and let me get things done. And I'm even managing to deal with all the crap that was waiting for me when I got home from the hospital, like the insurance claim to get the garage fixed; being summoned for Federal jury duty -- again!; and a couple other household management-type things that I really didn't need to deal with this month. (The good news is -- just today I finally found out that I was excused from travelling 2-/12 hours each way to sit in a jury pool, seeing as how I have a newborn baby and all -- in fact, I'm excused for 10 years. Which kind of rules.)

Anyway, got to take the baby girl out today in 18° weather. Think I'll start dressing her now!

Please welcome Miss Emily Dyer!

Less than a day old, and ready to sharpen pencils and spot blacks!

hello everyone

thanks everyone for all the well wishes and congrats -- if you don't know what I'm talking about, our daughter Emily Jane Dyer was born last week on December 30th. Evan posted the news so you probably saw it there. He'll be the main point of contact for a while as I recuperate and we both adjust to baby. Here's to a happy new year for us all!
