Quick Overdue Apology

David, I would just like to take a moment to apologize for cutting your hair all the time when we were kids. Really, I’m kind of surprised in hindsight that I didn’t get caught much sooner in the process – Mom must not have been hyper-alert to those types of things yet. But I saw a photo today of a friend’s son who had cut his own hair and thought, “Wow. At least he cut his own and not his brothers’!”

So there. A long overdue apology. I promise I always strove to make you look as beautiful as my Barbies. Maybe G-d made you bald for your first couple years of life to keep me from getting to you earlier!

 

See? You always looked fine from the front. I always stuck to the back.

Thank You Easter Bunny…Bawk, Bawk!

What a whirlwind weekend. After looking at a couple of houses (more about that later), we threw some things in the car and dashed off to Cleveland for Easter. It was our first trip there since we moved to Ohio and boy, is it a boring one. There is nothing between the two cities but dirt. And a lot of that was covered with snow.

First we went to a special and solemn religious ceremony on Saturday night for our brother David. We got there late of course. I think people with kids are deducted about 15 minutes of time per child from what they were able to do before. We normally ran about 15 minutes late before Jordan, so we were a total of a half hour late.

The fun began on Easter Sunday with Jordan and his Uncle Jeremy having a bit of Bob Evans together. Jordan likes to use his two teeth to munch on the banana bread. I told Cheryl he couldn’t have country fried steak until he had at least four teeth.

Then we headed out to David and Nicole’s home where Jordan and his cousin Aleah got to meet in a more…let’s say coherent state.

At Thanksgiving, they were mostly two ships passing in the night, since both of them were still in the “fourth trimester.” This time they were two ships trying to avoid a collision–aware of each other’s presence, but barely managing to avoid demolishing each other with their kung fu action chopping arms and hands.

As it turns out, Jordan, despite his seriousness, is quite impressionable and picked up a couple of things from his Uncle Alan at Thanksgiving.

There might actually be a picture of Jordan with his mouth locked onto Aleah’s head.

I guess we already know what kind of influence we can expect Uncle Alan to be. We’ll return the favor when he has his own kids. Luckily, no actual babies where harmed during this Easter holiday.

Finally, the obligatory bunny ears came out. These will definitely come in handy when these two turn into teenagers and start taking themselves too seriously. Aleah’s were massive and I think Jordan might have had a bit of bunny ear envy.

The trip back was hard. The traffic was everywhere and Jordan was so far off schedule that we had to stop a couple of times to put him back together post meltdown.

All in all though, it was a good time. There are a ton more pictures in the gallery.

It’s a bit late and we just wanted to get these pictures up before we went to bed so we’ll have to wrap it up for tonight.

To all of you who celebrate it, Happy Easter.


You guys rock!

Go team Smithstein!

Uncles Alan, Daniel and Jeremy and Aunt Karlee, I can’t wait to see you guys and show you all my new tricks…like drooling and grabbing for things. Uncle David, Aunt Nicole and Cousin Aleah, thanks for volunteering to watch that loud dog, but Uncle David, I expect you to be here to visit me on work trips at least once a month!


The Best Family in the World

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family. In this crazy move process, I have been completely freaking out about getting everything done. My biggest fear was getting to Columbus with two of us and a baby and having no way to get our things off the truck. We don’t know anyone in Columbus, and the image of us in the snow with no way to get our things inside literally had me in tears on Monday.

Our amazing family came to the rescue though.

Thanksgiving ’07: Bigger, Louder and 200% More Babies!

Well, we’ve arrived at the end of another turkey day and things couldn’t have been greater. Except there was no Turkey Bowl this year at the Rothstein’s.

Oh wait, maybe that’s what made it better.

I Hate the Associated Tax Relief commercial

There’s not much to this post, except to say how much I hate the Associated Tax Relief commercial. I don’t know why, but this commercial is ridiculously louder than any other commercial on television. TV has gotten me through the first weeks of motherhood, and I cannot tolerate hearing this thing again. It even wakes Q up it’s so loud.

Other week ending thoughts:

Why is it that you can have a burp cloth over your shoulder, yet the baby will still manage to throw up on your shirt? It’s like they have an advanced targeting system or something.

Why is it the best tasting beverages are all bad for you? Beer? Bad. Coffee? Bad. Dr. Pepper? Bad, especially when your brother makes it.

Why do cats only want to sit in your lap when you have something else to do or something else already in your lap? Charlie has recently taken to trying to sit on top of Jordan in my lap on the couch.

Finally, Alan, this is what Jordan was doing when we were on the phone the other night:

Q Photos 032

UPDATE: Last question: why would two girls they’re calling the Bratz Bandits rob our Publix? That’s not very nice and kind of disconcerting.

UPDATE 2 (from Allen): Cheryl forgot to mention that we also have the “Barbie Bandits” and the “Blue Jean Bandits.” It seems Atlanta is full of very colorfully named bandits.


David’s School Bus Fantasy Redux

In honor of the coming one year anniversary of last Thanksgiving–before any of us had kids and were getting sleep–I dug up this video of David describing what he would do if he could do anything with his free time.

[MEDIA=3]

I think there’s some actual video of him driving some kids to school.

Talk about dedication.

Football Picks

I’d just like to say that I’m still having fun with football picks this year, but it was much more fun last year when the whole Ross-Rothstein-Smith clan was playing. It’s one thing for four or five of us to kick Snealio’s butt, but it’s much more enjoyable when we’re all doing it. Andrea, Mom, did you chicken out on us? And Daniel, what happened to you after about week two? Without the whole group, it seems like it’s just the usual: Allen and Nicole duking it out to beat the rest of us in yet another pool.

Next year, we’re going to let Jordan pick as well, so the rest of you better get yourselves together. And Arizona, the next time you’re going to lose two quarterbacks in as many games, if you could let me know before I pick you to win, I’d appreciate it.
