Pastor Michelle came by today to meet Michael. I was feeling slightly better and actually made it downstairs
Our Wednesday schedule involves Elizabeth going to piano, then eating supper at karate before her blue belt class. So this is why she happened to be around during the black belt class immediately before hers. They were missing a person needed for doing their throws and things. Sensei Cody asked her whether she'd like to fill in. Of course she would! She had a big grin as she learned how to be tossed on the floor (and how to toss others). She looks forward to getting to go to this class all the time.
There are bonus Grandma H with Michael and Michael and his sibling fan picture photos in here, because let's face it, the baby is the main attraction around here at the moment.
You know I was not feeling good when I had two sets of visitors (Dave, Karen and the kids, and Heather and Andre) and didn't feel well enough to greet any of them. In fact, I do not think that this has ever happened before to this extrovert. I just sent baby down and stayed in bed whimpering and wasn't even slightly tempted to have anyone up to visit.
Matthew got a stripe on his yellow belt! He was pretty proud of himself. I haven't got a great sense of whether he likes karate or not. If you ask him after class, he wants to go back "right away!" or "I have to go tomorrow for sure!". But before class he is all "let's skip this class and go next time". Mom and Dad think that the extra physical activity and discipline building is particularly useful for this rambunctious little boy, so he's stuck with it for the moment.
Michael is two days old and it's warm enough outside that there was fog on the way to visit the pediatrician for his first well baby checkup. (Did I mention I miss midwifery postpartum care?)
