Big Brother!

Henry has a brand new little brother! August Nichol (AKA Gus, Augie) was born July 11, 2011, at 2:53 PM. He was 8 pounds 5 ounces and 20.5 inches long.


As you can see, he and Henry are already good pals.


I apologize for the brevity of this post, but you can find many other pictures of Henry and Gus on our Flickr site. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes! We are all happy to be a family of four.

First post of the year

As March comes to a close, we are finally getting around to our first blog post of 2011. At least we kept it within the first quarter. Although our last post was in early December, we'll spare you the jarring site of Christmas trees and wrapping paper.

Henry has been happy and healthy except for a couple of colds and an ear infection that was discovered to be MRSA. Fortunately, the tubes in his ears relieve him of the pain most of us associate with childhood ear infections. When his doctor finally determined which antibiotics would be effective, the infection cleared within a day.

Henry's biggest news is that he is going to be a big brother. Meade is due July 4 and is doing great, of course. We don't know if we're having a boy or girl, but we're open to suggestions.

Although Henry continues to struggle in his high chair, we do have fun moments now and then. (Notice his new glasses.)


A piece of equipment that he much prefers is his bath chair.


During the Super Bowl, our devotion was not enough to inspire any life into the Steelers' usually-stellar defense.


Henry decided that he would rather nap than watch lackluster football.


Here are some photos taken on Christmas Day:





Finally, Henry has a new trick. He can now roll from his back to his side. He can only do this from right to left, and he will only do it when his parents are not watching. We owe many thanks to Jennie for capturing this video on her phone.
