Duly Noted

Today is Cal's 5-month birthday.

To celebrate, I spent the afternoon sorting photos from the day he was born.

This is the first picture we took when we arrived at the hospital, and certainly one of my favorites. When the elevator doors opened to the labor and delivery floor, we were warmly greeted.

By this.

First thought: Huh

Second thought: Really?

Third thought: Is there a reason you're telling me this?

I'm not saying it isn't important. I'm sure it's muy importante. I just think the sign might have been better placed employee break room, rather than...say...the lobby.

But what do I know? Maybe someday this bit of information will prove useful (although I shudder to envision such a scenario).

Here is one of my other favorite pictures. A boy's first day.

Happy Birthday Cal. Te amo!

Estoy contenta no tiene la tina.

I believe it is tiƱa. And I didn't know that word! Ringworm, who knew? I think the word of the day when we were there was "dolor" which means pain. It seemed apt at the time but I didn't take a pic which I see now I clearly should have done.

Cute pic of Cal and glad you had the cam handy.

Count your blessings....the sign could have said, "Hoy NO epidurals"

I love that you would stop on your way to deliver your baby to take a picture of a great sign. My kind of girl!

That is the cutest picture of your little guy. I love the baseball cap on the the first day of life...Awesome. And I really hope you never have use for that particular Spanish word of the day. That is really funny!

I don't care if I was in labor, if I saw a sign like that there is no way I would of sat in the chair there. But I love how Cal is laying on that pillow. It makes it look like he is property of Cottage Hospital. Love it.

He is so cute! And I am gald you didn't get ringworm while you were in the hospital.

Jane said...

Is he just he cutest little boy in history? I was loving him on Skype today, even if he was mad. Should I be worried about getting ringworm when I come to St. Babs soon?

Ay, yay, yay! Estamos felices que no tienes tina!

Feliz Cumpleanos nino! (I don't know how to put the ~ over the letters. Jeff's not home, otherwise, I'd find out!)

Finally catching up on my blogs now that my funraiser is done. GRACIAS GOODNESS! Ahhhh, those pictures of my Leah, those Pictures, those pictures,
reminds me of a poem I once wrote:
Stop the press!
Be still my heart!
Send my dear Leah to Redlands
or else......

well, you know the rest

Thought that Calvin needed a poem , too. Titled, "Calvin: so yummy I want to eat him"

If Calvin were a hot dog
I'd eat him, eat him up!
If he were hot chocolate
I'd sip him from a cup
If I were a druggie
I'd snort him through my nose
And if it didn't hurt him
I'd nibble all his toes
If he were a tube of toothepaste
I'd brush my teeth all day
But Calvin is a human
And human he must stay
So I'll have to settle
With scrunching his sweet cheek
And so a job near Redlands
is what his daddy needs to seek!
