Ciana has had a number of diaper blowouts just like any baby, but at 4 am yesterday, she showed me what projectile pooping looks, smells, and feels like… all over her monkey blanket, two diapers (the one I was changing and the new one), and the sleeve of my robe. At least the robe stopped the flying, runny poop from squirting off the end of the changing table. Casey got up and cleaned up the poo; he’s the best.
*Update a couple days later: Ciana topped her episode above by shooting her poo a good 2 feet, making it off the end of the changing table and then doing it again.
Who knew so much nasty stuff could come out of someone so sweet & adorable.
We had a productive Halloween getting things done around the house. Took a break tonight to hang with friends and to carve a pumpkin. I like how this smiley monster turned out.
Casey and I took a 30-hours-of-driving-in-less-than-a-week roadtrip to Ohio, New York, and Pennsylvania at the beginning of October. Beautiful time for driving and being 6 months pregnant was fine for a roadtrip. Baby Valiant did great!
iPhones are really cool too! We were listening to an audio book and were so engrossed in it that we missed our exit by 15 miles. So we fired up our iPhones and took backroads to get to our destination.

I totally knew his midichlorian was going to be extraordinary. Yeah, that’s right… I said ‘his’. I have absolutely no proof just a rather strong hunch. And I do have good hunches. You can also see how much his tail/legs are moving between shots. He was jumping around and moving his stubby arms and tail/legs like crazy. He’s like a T-rex with those stubby little arms. And did you see his gigantic Obama-ear in frame 1? We could also see (and hear) the heart. Pretty neat stuff. (BTW, Casey wrote this.)
We spent the last weekend in May in St. Louis with Casey’s parents and our nephew, Grant. Here’s a visual story:
Asianic Lilies in our front garden
So bright and full of sunshine!
We have three rhododendron bushes in our front garden, but whoever planted them might not have read the tag – they’re each supposed to get 8′ wide x 10′ tall and they’re in a tight space with other flowers and a tree around them! Aren’t they pretty though?
More Spring Flowers
Our lavender irises are about done blooming, but our columbines are now in full bloom. I don’t think our lilac bush survived the floods that we had a month or so ago, but everything else looks great. Our serviceberry tree is starting to create lil’ berries. The staff at the nursery where we bought our tree said that the berries are super yummy and they try to eat the berries before the birds discover them. Can’t wait to try our own lil’ berries!
