Aeryn's Here!


Hey everyone,
Aeryn Inara Schelly joined us on 3/2/2015 and we're glad to finally meet her. She came out at 8lbs, 7ozs and 20" long. We've got pictures up from the first 6 days! Here's some album links, followed by some highlights.

The New Kid Has a Name!


We brainstormed, and put up sticky notes with name ideas on the wall. Friends came over and contributed their own suggestions. We vetoed them off once a day until we had only 5 blue notes left. We started writing up yellow notes that had full names on them, using one of the 5 favorites, and sometimes pulling in some crossed out names that might pair well with them.

Spoiler Alert: If you don't want to know, don't click any further!

Thoughts back on 10+ years with Penny


For those who don't know, Penny's been pretty ill lately and isn't going to be with us for much longer. I've been looking back at old photos of her, and I thought I'd share some of my favorites. I've been pretty sure it was her last day several times this week, but she keeps bouncing back, and she's still happy to be around. I know it's hard to imagine her happy for friends who've only ever seen her evil side, but maybe some of these pictures will convince you. ;-)
