The Dude is a cousin! Eleanor ("Nora") Grace Giguere was born at 10:50 am on March 5th, 2014, weighing 7 lb. 6 oz. and absolutely perfect. We love her, love her! This is the stuffed apatosaurus Dude picked out for Nora. She seems to like it just fine. Also, while... Continue reading

We had a lovely, quiet Thanksgiving at the house. Sean was so kind as to serenade us as he cooked. Multi-talented, that one. Continue reading

Dude's love of dinosaurs is known far and wide. Thus, people send hin presents. One such came in the mail from the Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C., sent via my friend in SC. He got to chisel & brush a dinosaur skeleton out of a block of sand. He... Continue reading

To say Dude was excited is the greateast understatement ever. (on the plane) The resort was gorgeous...and properly Mickey-fied. The second day we were there, I inexplicably woke up at 5 am and couldn't go back to sleep. So I took a little walk around our resort, Coronado Springs. The... Continue reading

Wherein we visited with Auntie Delle, went to the zoo, rode a street car, and ate various reptiles, including alligator sausage, which Liam loved, and turtle soup, which he did not. We also got to witness a particularly intense street scene in which some seemingly intoxicated individuals dug through a... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, we watched The Neverending Story for family movie night. Liam had never seen it, and Sean & I were particularly excited, since it's such an favorite classic of ours. I kept a record of Liam's running commentary, as it amused us almost as much as the... Continue reading

This week, at home, I half-seriously told Dude to "check yourself before you wreck yourself." This week, at school, marked Dude's 4th consecutive week of staying on Green (highest behavior level). So, at least he's behaving consistently for his teacher. Continue reading

We took Dude for his first dentist visit EVER today (I know, I know). It's been on our radar to set one up for at least a year, but we just kept forgetting to investigate which local dentists were covered on Sean's insurance, which were recommended for kids, etc. Anyhow,... Continue reading

Finally got the Dude in for his 5-year-old well-visit today (I made this appt in MARCH! It was the first available!). He weighs 45.6 lbs and is 45.5 inches tall. I admire his consistency. Anyhow, the doctor said he was "perfect." So...who am I to argue with medical expertise? Continue reading

Dude came home from SC on January 4th, and since then, life's been a blur of final revisions, school starting back, for both Liam and us, my birthday, and cold weather. But I've managed to document some of it. Here's some random moments I've captured. (He's wiggling his loose teeth... Continue reading

We had quite a time in South Carolina for Christmas, including ice-skating and plenty of presents! Making cookies with Opa. Playdates with Gray and Cate and Zephyr, during some of which clothes were optional. Heh. We spent a lovely afternoon with Aunt Heather and Uncle Chad and Zephyr, who thought... Continue reading

One Saturday before Christmas, we went up to the Square for "ice-skating." Unfortunately, the line was 2 hrs+ long, and it was on "synthetic" ice, so we just went to lunch instead. But not before Dude saw Santa again and excelled in posing for knick-knacks. This kid. Behold, the "rink":... Continue reading
