Boy Genius

He usually goes all the way to 10, we don't know why he would only say "14", and as you can see he is very fond of the letter "W". We also don't know why he was saying he is one because he is very good at saying he is two. I don't know about you, but I think he is pretty remarkable.

Temple Trip

Last Saturday we took a quick trip to the Washington D.C. temple. We were there just long enough to do a session and have dinner with Richie's sister. She watched Richie while we were in the temple and took these pictures.

I am feeling much better, but it looks like big Richie has a hernia. There must be something about New Jersey.

4 a.m. False Alarm

I will start by saying that I am fine, I am just going to fill you in on the LONG day I have had. This morning around 2:00 I started feeling some major discomfort in my belly. I thought it was just my bladder because I have been feeling bladder discomfort since Friday, but just assumed it was a pregnancy thing. I didn't get any relief after going to the bathroom and it continued to get worse as time went on. I could sleep for about fourty minutes to an hour at a time before I would have to go to the bathroom again, but always with the same result. Finally around 4:00, 4:30 the discomfort had become definite pain and I could not sleep. I began to wonder if this pain was more serious than I thought, but I didn't want to wake up the boys. The pain got so bad that at 5:45 I woke Richie up and we went to the hospital. I think I started having contractions on the way to the hospital because the pain went from being constant to coming in waves.

As soon as we were settled in …
This is a video clip of Richie looking through a book that my mom made for us. It has pictures of each of my family members. It's a great way for Richie to see who he's talking to when he talks to them on the phone. It's also nice since they were just here and he was able to develop a relationship with each of them. Thanks for the book mom!

It's Labor Day, September 3rd, and I can't believe that I go back to school tomorrow. I'm starting the second year of my graduate program, and tomorrow I will be teaching my first class at a University. I'm teaching Basic Acting, and I finished my syllabus at 3:00 in the morning a couple days ago. I'm excited and nervous, and I'm already grateful for the things I've learned and been reminded of as I've prepared for the class.

Below is a picture of Richie pretending to sleep in his new bed that was given to us by Grandma and Papa Call. He's been doing well, and the transition seems to be going sm…
