Everett loves to sleep on us. Usually cuddled up to our chest. This particular evening, he was fussing a bit, so I sat him on my lap, and all of a sudden his body got droopy. So I leaned back slowly, and he leaned back with me, and…he was out. I don’t know if you can tell from this angle, but I was positioned very awkwardly. But afraid to move for fear of waking him. I tolerated it for five minutes, then moved him to the crack between the couch cushions. His dad and I continued to watch the evening news without a peep from the little bod between us.

Everett has been on a few outings with us during his first month of life. He usually sleeps through them all. Fortunately, he saves his explosive bowel movements for us at home, not the general public. We regretted not bringing the Baby Bjorn to Costco, until Marshall suggested we place E right in the cart. I didn’t believe he would fit. He did. And we realized later, he had all the check-out ladies so distracted, they didn’t check to see that we had 18 dollars worth of toilet paper on the bottom of the cart.


He was causing a ruckus at Jimmy John’s, as you can see.


Tummy time!


Ev ignores his cousin Ave.



Our little laughing Buddha!


Our little Peter Pan!


Sleepy baby.
