Return of the Bumbo

We have fond memories of the days when Soren was in the Bumbo. It has recently returned into the household as a loaner again and even after three years Soren still fits into it. Sevi is just as happy and content in it and more than ready to start eating real food.

Happy 5 Months Sevi!

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


I am currently teaching a Black and White Photography course at The University of Saint Catherine's. As a demo for a darkroom technique known as photograms, I used Sevi as an example. You can say that Sevi has now officially been "exposed" to photography and the darkroom. This was done when he was about 3 months old and even then just fit onto a piece of 16x20 photographic paper.

11 Feet of Pure Cycling Pleasure

The remaining winter sludge has officially been cleared from the MN landscape and out from hibernation have come the family bike gear. This year Soren has moved up to the Tag-A-Long and Sevi has moved into the Burley. The Tag-A-Long is a borrowed gift from Uncle Jeff and Soren LOVES it. When Randy attaches the whole lot to his own bike it measures a total of 11 feet (lord knows the total weight with our big caboose!). Look for the train of boys on the weekends. This gives me until summer to get back into shape to pull the train myself and get the boys to all the local parks and pools. Choo-Choo........

Milk Brothers

We welcomed Griffin into this world in the beginning of January. We met his parents a couple of years ago and have just recently been blessed with getting to know them on a more intimate level. With Sevi tipping the scales with his weight, I knew he had plenty to share. When Griffin needed a little help to tip his own scales, I was happy to share some of my milk supply to get him over this hurdle. While my milk maid role was short, it is the bond of friendship that has been created with this milk connection that we are the most excited about. Soren has a new buddy (Griffin's older brother), Randy has a new biker friend to talk shop with, I have an incredibly wonderful new friend and Sevi and Griffin are officially milk brothers.
