And then there were five… (The story of Claire’s birth)

The set-up When Sarah was about 20 weeks along with this baby, she began to lobby for us to not find out what the gender was until the baby was actually born.  After all, she figured, we could be surprised by learning if it was a boy or a girl at 20 weeks, or at […]

Sarah’s Buzzing! (or, Pimping Buzz About Baby)

Sarah has launched a web-based business called Buzz About Baby, selling crafty things that she has created — nursing covers (a.k.a. Hooter Hiders or Knocker Blockers), binky clips, grab-and-go diaper holders, taggy ribbon toys for babies, and no-slip headbands. Her prices are much lower than any other place she’s found online. Her web site is […]

I married a handy girl! (or, The story of the swing set)

Sarah has always been very resourceful, which has been a great complement to my inherent cheapness during our marriage. Last fall, as she was going to visit her sister Becca in Sandy, she saw a swing set by the side of the road. She wanted it and she got it, even if it meant carrying […]

And baby makes four

This morning Sarah woke up at 2:15 with pretty strong contractions. She got me up soon after, and we called for Becca (her sister and doula) to come help with the labor. We looked out the window and saw that it had snowed quite a bit overnight, so the roads were pretty bad. Becca and […]

You Gotta Love It, Baby

I got the chance to laugh at Sarah the other day while we were tossing around names for Baby Brother. (A few weeks ago, we were pretty much settled on Nathan, but we’ve since backed off it.) Our neighbors have a son named Stockton (after Utah Jazz great John Stockton), so Sarah said, “We could […]

Sarah’s Going To Have A Fit!

Sarah had been looking on the Internet for “four door hatchback” and “five door car“… and didn’t really like what she was finding. That is, until she saw the Honda Fit. (Here’s the official Honda Fit web site.) She really likes all the fun things you can do with the seats, and fuel economy is […]

Camping Adventure!

I took three days of vacation this week, and Sarah and I went camping. She called it our last vacation alone together. We went to the Rock Cliff area of Jordanelle State Park, and since the weather was rather crummy, we had the place all to ourselves most of the time. We did get a […]
