I don't want to post too many details, because it doesn't look like the parents have yet on facebook or their blog, but I will say that after seven gorgeous nieces, I finally have a nephew!! Congratulations, Dan and Rachel! I can't wait to meet him in August or September. I will say this though. He is big!
Let's see, what else is going on . . . oh haha. Jeff went to the store Saturday evening to buy ink, because it had finally become really inconvenient to print things off at other people's houses. He came home a while later with a new printer instead! The cost of the printer was less than the cost of the ink, and the new ink cartridges cost $15 less than our old ink cartridges. I'm not sure what to do with our old printer though. It's not broken, so it seems wasteful to throw it away, but who would want a printer that uses $25 ink cartridges ($50 if you're out of color and black)? Any ideas? Is there like a donation center? But would a charity want a printer with expensive ink? I don't know what to do with it. It was funny to see Jeff come home with that big box when all I expected was little ink packages.
Danny loves Elmo all of a sudden. When he says Elmo, it kind of sounds like "Meh-mo." It's pretty sweet. He gets really excited whenever he sees a picture of Elmo anywhere. I should show him the Elmo doll that we gave Jill a few years ago when she was super excited about Elmo. How fun to watch them go through similar stages.
Ha. Speaking of similar stages, guess what I discovered Jill doing? She was putting lip gloss on Danny. He loved it. I don't know if he specifically loved lip gloss, Jill sharing with him, or Jill giving him undivided attention as she tried to keep it on his lips, but whatever the case, he was very happy. He wants to do everything he sees his big sister do. Except use the potty. He freaked out about being put on the potty. It's still way early though, so I'm not concerned.
Jeff has gone to the store tonight to buy a bicep band for his iPhone. (I'm not sure what those are actually called, but he is tired of his iPhone banging around in his pocket while he runs.) I wonder if this will be a repeat of Saturday, and he'll come home with something completely different. He did hint that he hoped there would be cookies baked by the time he got home, so I suppose I should go get on that.
Oh, before I go, my sister's amazing video trailer made me realize I haven't recorded my children in a long time, so I took a video today. Enjoy!
