He is still pro marriage but not for himself and provides wisdom for new dads-to-be who work with him (advocating breastfeeding!). He saw me yesterday as I was doing my off-shift mentoring (I sit with new legal researchers and provide "advice"), and said that he had a small gift for Hannabert and proceeded to give me a small sum of money for "Hannabert's College Fund."
Wow! How unexpected and how heartwarming to receive such a gift.

Luckily Grandma B had some odds and ends of clothing that had been left down in Cincinnati before and I had one sleeper in my suitcase. We ended up having enough clothing for the weekend (including a cute outfit for the Grandpa B's family party).
We wanted to get a Santa picture this year and thought that we would miss out as Grandma B's family party had already started before we had even left. Luckily as we pulled into The Greene to go to Von Maur, we found out that Santa was taking a smaller lunch break than what we thought so Horn pushed me out of the car and had me stand in line while he parked (not really but he did suggest that I do it).
Santa was a hit.
We successfully made it to Grandma B's Family Party and will was a HUGE hit (none of the other little cousins were able to make it). He received a wonderful Fisher Price Nativity Set. I had just become aware of this set and really wanted one and was planning on getting him one after Christmas. Thanks to Auntie Linda, Hannabert got to play with his nativity on Christmas. The hay was delicious.

Poor Hannabert caught a stomach bug this weekend. I should have known something was up when he didn't scream like we were taking away his puppy (no, we don't have one yet but my partner in crime is woking on it with me) and selling it to Cruella DeVille when we were eating. In fact, Horn and I got to eat an entire meal without Hannabert demanding bite for bite competition.
Hannabert literally spent the entire Sunday nursing. Literally the entire day. I got off the couch twice in 8 hrs. He perked up in time to keep dad awake until 4am but woke up out of it again this morning.
I know his tummy hurts but, even though I explain it in explicit terminilogy, he doesn't understand and can't tell me how bad it feels for him.
I know they make collars that interpret a dog's bark but I can't seem to find any similar type of baby apparrel.

After falling off the weight chart (which are made by formula companies and thus reflect a baby formula fed rather than a breastfed baby) for the last five months, Hannabert is finally back on it.
Does he look like a skinny baby? We actually have friends who volunteered to vouch for his eating habits.
