It's good to have the both of you back

And not just back, back with reinforcements! Datetwin and her husband are home from the hospital with G-Squared! G is my first boy 0f 2009. You see, in my life, I don't count babies, I count boys. Mostly because no one I know has had/is having anything else. We had 5 boys last year and G was the first of 3 expected this year.

G is huge by baby standards, although we all knew he would be. (He's not so big for a full grown adult though, if I weighed what he weighed I don't think my organs would still function). He has 10 fingers and 10 toes and was not anxious to join the rest of us here in "the world." He tried to stay in for far longer than a cooperative baby should. As much as that should be an indication of a trouble maker, Datetwin reports that so far he is a very easy baby. I think he's lulling her into a false sense of security.

I dropped by today with a big bag of goodies I promised them months ago. When I mentioned I'd bring them by some food after the baby was born, Mr. Datetwin's eyes lit up: "YES PLEASE!" And so I more than happily complied. There's a mixture of hot and cold, chicken and beef, and bland and spicy.

Swedish Meatballs

Chicken with Rice and Green Beans

Ham and Cheese Deli Wraps

Mozzarella stuffed meatballs

Baked Chicken with Baked Potatoes

Pasta Salad

Welcome to the world G-Squared!


  1. what a wonderful gift - not that i'm complaining, but it sure beats blankets ;)

  2. Funny...everyone I know is having girls. Looks good!

  3. It does seem that among my friends, girl are a rarity, too. IT was so nice of you to bring all of the food!

  4. Oh my goodness, girl! That is sooooo much food! What a RIDICULOUSLY NICE person you are! That's so thoughtful of you to do that all for a friend. i'm sure they will love it all!

  5. That all looks wonderful! Cooking definitely takes a back seat after baby is born, so I know they enjoyed your gift. By the way, everyone I know has boys too! There are like 2 girls in Logan's nursery at church...

  6. Soo . . . we're friends and I'm pregnant with a boy. I just wanted to remind you. :) JK what a wonderful friend you are, that spread looks fabulous!

  7. What a sweet thing to do! I know from experience that not having to cook or make food in the beginning is so helpful.

  8. well little (or big, i guess) G!

    i'm glad someone knows a bunch of boys being born because everyone i know is having girls. i was afraid they'd all grow up and have no one to kiss later in life. ;)

    that food care package is awesome. nice work!
