Yesterday Mia had her two-week checkup at the doctor’s office. Her 2-week measurements were 10lbs and 21.5 inches. As you may recall, she was 19 inches long at birth. If she keeps growing at this rate, she’ll be nearly 6 feet tall by her first birthday. I guess there’s a CHANCE the original hospital measurement […]

Introducing Mia Charlotte
Mia Charlotte Atterberry was born on 3/15/08 at 9:40am, weighing 8lb 15.5oz and 19in long. Mom and baby both doing great! Click on the picture below for some pictures we’ve posted: We’re all home from the hospital, and I’m taking the week off. Evan is excited to be a big brother! Thanks so much to […]
Any day now!
I’m not sure who all has been following along, but today marks the official 37 week point in the gestation of our next offspring. In other words, our baby is welcome to arrive any day now! Like most ladies in her position, Dusty prefers sooner rather than later! The room is ready, the bags are […]
6 months of new Evan photos posted
We haven’t gotten around to posting new photos of Evan lately, so we had about a 6 month backlog! Take a look on the photos page. Months 22 through 28 are new.
Do you know what a bouzouki is?
It’s a musical instrument (somewhat guitar-like) that is often used in Greek music. Would you know one if you heard one? If not, Evan’s got you beat. A bouzouki has eight strings arranged in pairs and is similar in appearance to a mandolin. The paired strings and tuning create a distinctive sound shared by the […]
Big little announcement
In case the photo below isn’t a dead give-away, Dusty and I are expecting baby #2 late this summer. We’re both very excited, and so is Evan. He’ll pat Dusty’s belly and say “baby!”, but he’ll also do the same for his own belly, so I don’t think he entirely gets it yet! To answer […]
One color, $2.49
Today Dusty was reading Evan one of his favorite books. It’s a book about colors, with a kitten on each page dressed up in or sitting amongst some colorful object. When she turned the page, Evan pointed at a purple teddy bear and said “purpie!” From that we knew that he associated that page and […]
Say “Daddy”… “Homer!”
Evan started saying an entirely new word tonight, but we couldn’t figure out what it was… It sounded like “Goy” or “Coy” and he only says it when he holds a phone up to his ear. We just figured out what he was saying. It’s “Korey”, but when has he ever heard that word? We […]
Evan is at the stage where he doesn’t quite know the actual word for everything in his world, but he’s found ways to express what he’s observing or thinking. Whenever he sees a siren on top of a car, he loudly mimics a fire engine siren: “Woo oo oo!” Any construction equipment reminds him of […]
Evan photos through month 22 posted
After a long hiatus of posting pictures, we’ve finally gotten around to posting our favorite photos of Evan. You can see them on the photos page. The last update we made was a while ago, so months 19 and later are the new ones.
