Sumo niece and other pictures...

We're back from the two day family extravaganza of fun! I know you will be seeing this picture on Terri's blog as well, but I was pretty proud of how it turned out, and I did take it, so I had to share. Though she did provide the subject... This is Claire Bear, my baby Sumo niece. She's beautiful, and really perfectly dead on for weight for her age, but man, she has these huge, adorable, baby fat rolls. And look at those big ol' cheeks!

This is surprised Claire. She can't figure out why I'm taking her picture. She looks so much like Terri in some of her expressions. It's like changing Terri's diaper and pinching her cheeks. Weird...

Here are the men, getting ready for their men only, manly man fishing trip. All three of the shirts belong to Dad. Unfortunately, they didn't catch a single fish. But they ate sandwiches on the boat and got cold and tangled up their fishing line. Apparently, all that stuff makes for a successful trip, so they were good. Men...

This is what David does to his brother-in-law when said brother-in-law is pretending to sleep and ignoring him. That's the entire contents of my mom's coffee table. You can see that Terri was extremely angry about the disrespect aimed her husband's way...
Still got allergies. Ugh. But it's beautiful here, and Seth is doing pretty well this morning. He got a little overexcited with all the cousin love toward the end, I think. He's got a runny nose, too, and I'm not sure if it's allergies or if he has a cold. Off to get a shower and run to the store for the next installment of company! Sarah, if you have any particular cravings, email me before 1:00 p.m. =)

Um...Ahem. "Changing Terri's diaper"? Sorry but...I don't get it! :)

(Just had to point that out...you know me...)

Thanks, Ellen! I'm sure I'll be looking to you (veteran mom) for advice once the baby is born. :) Great pics of your niece too!

I realized I don't have your email address, but we're starting to get stuff for the nursery. I'd be interested in your thoughts on stuff that y'all realized you needed in those first few months that you forgot to get. For instance, one friend said they had to go out to get a baby nail file.
