13 September 2015

So this blog has been quiet. We moved. We didn't have internet. We had a baby. We got internet again.

You know. Big stuff.

But seriously. Life has been a little crazy, and somewhere in the middle of that crazy, baby three arrived. Specifically: on September 7 at 3:06am.


Roman John Rhodes
(Roman pronounced like a citizen of Rome., not roMAHN like the nurse at the pediatrician's office presumed. We're ethnically too uninteresting to manage that pronunciation.)

Anyhow. There he is. Nice and fresh and ruddy with weirdly dark hair which will probably go full tow after a year or so of peach fuzz. Or maybe he'll keep it, and then maybe he could make a go at roMAHN. 
He was big.
Broke the family record by a pound and a half. Let's all pray along with my tailbone that he keeps that record.

 First family photo:
The kids were pretty enamored with him.
Especially Lucy June. So we have about 500 versions of this photo:
I'm doing well. I'm trying to relax, but - as you instafriends already know - our first week was a little bumpy. 

Birth story was hardly anything to write home about, but write it I soon as I have two hands to do it.
Little Ro is a pretty charming baby so far and a great sleeper. He felt like a stranger at first, but his slopey Rhodes eyes quickly melted my labor-weary heart.
Thank you thank you thank you for all the well wishes! I'll be back soon I promise!

  14. Shocking amazing testimony by Tom Bush

    O.M.G!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2015, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Baba Agba on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about spells before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Baba Agba did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my wife back to me in just 17hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my wife knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept her back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Baba Agba you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful man once again.. here is his Email: OR CALL +2347064348663....Tom Bush from England(UK)....
