We really liked the way Jake’s birthday cake (from a little over 2 weeks ago) turned out.

Second Childhood

the little hoop

One of the best things about having a very little kid as an older parent is getting to re-experience all the most fun parts of childhood: getting a new toy, visiting Santa and the Easter Bunny, etc.

The little guy will be coming home from nursery school to see this one, and I can’t wait.

My Green Shirt

I was getting ready to put Jake down for his afternoon nap and he decided to pose a bit for me, so here’s your daily dose of cute.

Just about as cute (and as messy) as you would expect.

Smile Around The Face

I’m visiting my sister’s family in the Cleveland, Ohio area. We just put a severe hurt on turkey and trimmings, and now I’m indulging with a spot of peach cobbler and my birthday cake, which my wonderful niece Taylor was nice enough to bake for me. I’d ordinarily be linking to some action shots on Flickr but I left my camera on the dining room table so you’ll have to just imagine us all sprawled across the family room in tryptothan torpor. There are worse ways to be.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow yanks and, um, happy Thursday to the rest of y’all.

Congratulations, Taylor!

Taylor Johnson, my niece, and her softball team, the Shaker Heights (Ohio) Red Devils, won the Willoughby League Girls (12 and under) championship Thursday night. They were undefeated throughout the regular season. They played the 2nd place team for the League Championship in a best 2 of 3 games. They won the 1st game, lost the 2nd and they won in a nailbiter Thursday night, 10-7. They were down 5-0 at the top of the 4th and then in the bottom of the 4th and 5th innings, they came back to tie it up. The other team, The Closet of Willoughby, scored in the top of the 6th to make it 7-5 and our girls came back in the bottom of the 6th to score 5 more runs and make it 10-7. They retired The Closet in the top of the 7th, 1,2,3 and won thus won the game. Taylor is a rightfielder.

There's a small gallery here.

Yay, Meaghan!

Congratulations to my niece, Meaghan Johnson. Her high school track team finshed second overall in the Ohio Division III (Girls) state track championships, and her relay squad won the 4x200 relays. Though only a freshman, Meaghan competed on the varsity squad this year.
