Yes, more pictures

Just some random pics from the past few days. (I really need to find time to write more...)

We finally got a family photo taken! I had my 15 year high school reunion, which was about as well-attended as I thought it would be (only about 8 people showed up). That pretty much sums up my high school class- apathetic, at least most people. Though at this stage in our lives, it's hard to go to anything anymore.

It was nice to see some friendly faces... and even the not-so-friendly faces. We attended a BBQ on Sunday, and everyone there had kids. I had to take Rachel because the stubborn chunky money now won't eat from a bottle (again). How in the world will John and I get out to do anything? If she ever starts eating from a bottle again, I think I'll just switch to formula. I'm tired of getting up 4 times a night, never being able to go anywhere without her. I'm not producing much milk anyway...

But I digress...


Eric going through a play tunnel- it took awhile to convince him that this was fun.


Rachel in motion.


Yes, she still has that Monchichi hair. (I haven't thought of that cartoon in forever, and a friend at the reunion mentioned her "monchichi hair." And then when I thought about it... it sounded Japanese. Sure enough- the Monchichi cartoon was imported from Japan!)

Great pics! It is so funny.. Eric takes more after you, and Rachel takes more after John. With my girls they are both a blend so you can not really see either of us in them...

The first photo is a great one of you and John. Based on my family's photos, I predict you'll be able to get one where everyone is facing the camera simultaneously in about five years.

Great photos! That last one of Rachel is so precious!

They're both such freakin' cuties, but that last picture -- yes, Monchichi, if she just starts sucking her thumb! -- is adorable!

For what it's worth, Meghan and I were attached by the hip, I mean, the boob, until around 13 months old. I just didn't do a whole lot without her. But for me, at least, it was worth it for the sake of the BFing, as well as the closeness that came of it. But I also don't have two kids, so you gotta do what you gotta do in order to maintain your sanity! ;) Let me know if there's any way I can help!
