My Precious Baby

Question: Who looks like a cross between a turnip ...




and Winston Churchill ...


while still managing to be astoundingly debonair ...



and remarkably dapper?


Answer: My Precious Baby.


Many of you heard it through the grapevine that we had a terrible accident on Friday.
All is well but here's what happened: I laid Simeon on my bed for ONE SECOND & turned to grab something off my dresser. In that brief moment, Gussie said "Hi baby," and pulled Simeon off the bed by his feet. Simeon landed right on his head on the hardwood floor.
I was beyond panicked & we rode to the hospital in the ambulance. A few minutes into the ride, I began to calm down as Simeon was acting like himself. However, when we arrived a CT scan showed a hairline fracture in his skull. We stayed overnight and most the next day for observation but Simeon never displayed signs of further injury. They released us the next day with instruction to visit the pediatrician for a check up in a few days.
We've been home now since Saturday night and I'm happy to report that Simeon is perfectly well. I'm still kicking myself and covering the house and children with bubble tape and throw rugs but that's sure to pass soon as well.
We've received lots of calls from friends and family in the past week & I just want to thank you all for your prayers and for your concern & assure you that the baby is just perfect. Keep praying though; we certainly need it!

Gah! You make cute babies. :)

Sorry to hear about the fall, but glad to hear all is well! Poor little guy. Life is never boring, is it?

I am glad and thankful, still, that he's safe!

These turnip/German tourist posts made me laugh so hard when I first saw them. A month later, I come back to let you know...
