James is 6 weeks old!

Well, he was 6 weeks old yesterday, but I've been sick and just didn't get around to it. But we did go out with our visitor Ali (who's been a HUGE help around the house... thanks Ali!) to the hippie Saturday Market here in Eugene, and then dined on Voodoo Donuts. We also went up to Skinner Butte to see the view. Here are some pics from our adventure:

James and the Giant Hat

If you look closely, in this one you can see Autzen Stadium (where the Ducks play) and the Sisters mountains with snow on them.

Our friend Ali!

Bath time!

James Second Month

Things are going well here except I got Eliot's cold and am feeling a bit under the weather. The garden is giving us blackberries, tomatoes, and squash, and James is happy and healthy! I had my 6-week check up on Friday and everything is healing well. Oh, and James's rash from my oversupply issue is almost totally gone (it was caused by too much lactose in his system from him digesting milk too quickly).

Tonight we are having Jodi over for burgers and game night.. should be fun! My mind, though is on our trip to Mt Rainier in a few weeks (and Eliot going to Scotland for a gig the week before that). I'm already trying to figure out how to get all that baby gear into our tiny Kia...

Happy 6-week birthday James!! We Love you!


  1. Just have to tell you how great you're looking! Your face has really slimmed down...gotta love losing all that water retention! And my nephew is absolutely adorable! Can't wait to see you guys on Tuesday!

  2. I love all of the pictures, Kate, especially "bath time" and "James and the Giant Hat." You're doing a great job with your blog and with James. Keep on doing what you're doing!
