You should see the other guy!


So we had our first major wipe out. Tooth thru the entire lip and face. Ouch. He is using it for popsicles all night. No worries, he's good.

Sophia Elaine Lampi 8/26/09






Born at 6:14 am Wednesday morning, Sophia came into the world, all 7 lbs. and 20 inches long and a monster head of jet black hair. And I can't leave out that adorable Greek nose after her Papou. We think as of right now she looks most like what Eden did at birth. Steph worked so hard and we were blessed by two amazing friends to help coach in DR. Jami and Meg. Caleb and Eden are so excited too -Caleb's already been helping with bath and diaper duties; however, Eden is taking it slow - "I don't want to squish her, Daddy." Thanks to my parents and mom-in-law for being such a support and for all of you who said a prayer for a healthy labor and delivery. It's going to take me a while to find words to express how I feel about God's gift of grace to our family.

A few quick cute moments to share:

At the house, while we were in hospital, Eden turned to my mom and said, "We're going to see the baby today, and you know what? Papou will be there." Turns out the little girl has a few of his features.

Also after I exclaimed about having a girl, the doctor who delivered her turned to me and says, "My condolences."

Caleb, concerning the umbilical chord remains, says, "Mom, I'll be really happy when that things falls off."

This one's good. I love imonk's comment, if I ever become Catholic it will be from watching this video too many times!

We were looking through our old videos and....

video

....Steph, the boys and I came across two crazy-skilled, sick-gifted DADS who've temporarily traded in their pics for pacifiers and their sticks for thomas the tank engine and took the HIGH road. What could have been for these boys of summer - if they were a band right now we'd call them "IDLE TALENT" (reference to "talent" put "on hold" for a greater purpose)....for now..... This is a bootleg performance from our deck 2 summers ago. John Mayer and SRV EAT YOUR HEART OUT!!! Listen to these chops, and as if it couldn't get any better.....BAM - Skins!

And one of them just scored a new Fender Strat. And trust me, I've had a moment in that "STRAT-OSPHERE."
