There’s a long tradition of book-writing in the Northcutt household. I started it in first grade with The Adventures of Spiderman and Bubblegum Man, a lengthy tome of 5 or 6 pages. Continue reading
After a few weeks of wiggling, Emma has lost her first tooth. She went to bed on Friday and we were certain it would be coming out the next day. As it turned out she lay in bed and played with the tooth just after we turned the lights out until it finally came free. Continue reading
Emma was recently sent to her room as punishment. She begged and pleaded for a light sentence but ended up serving hard time. When her time was up she rejoined society and had a pair of presents for Mommy and Daddy. Continue reading
I’d heard one too many, “What a cute little girl!” comments over the past few weeks and, one must admit, it was starting to get a bit disheveled. So, though we loved the little golden curls, it was finally time for Henry to go and have his first haircut. Continue reading
Henry’s been walking for a little over a month now.
The first weekend was just a few, furtive steps and he was very frustrated. After a few days he was having a blast, toddling a few feet before collapsing. Now, a month later, we’re struggling to keep up with him.
Henry has his first tooth! It’s a little out of focus in the picture below, but you should be able to make it out.
We spotted it under the gum a few weeks ago and early last week it finally broke through. Grandpa Mandel won a fabulous prize (a batch of delicious cookies from Marla) for guessing Henry’s big news first. They’re on the way, Grandpa… promise! (Well, “on the way” as soon as Marla makes them!)
This was a week of milestones! Let me regail you with two of them.
First off: Little Henry is finally supposed to be born! His expected date of arrival was Jan 26. He’s now a pretty normal size and weight for a newborn and his sleep/wake cycles are pretty much right on track if here we a mere 5 days old today.
Less than 24 hours later and we are the proud new parents of Henry Owen Northcutt. Born at 4:59 PM on December 21st, 2004 Henry weighed in at a trim 5 pounds, 2 ounces and measured 16.5 inches tall. Continue reading
Is a first doughnut a momentus occassion, like a first step or first word?
I’m not entirely sure, but the pictures are sure as cute as can be! Grandpa Northcutt had the great idea for a chocolate-covered doughnut on a lazy, uh, Tuesday morning and Emma certainly wasn’t going to disagree! She attacked the doughnut with gusto and downed it with a frosty glass of chocolate milk.
