John Watson's first blog spotting

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Hey all:
This is just going to be a quick and simple post of some pictures from early this morning when John Watson was born. Some quick stats: he was born at 2:15 am on 3/13/08, weighed in at 9 lb. 5 oz.and 22 1/4 inches long, and as you can see from the pictures has lots of dark brown, almost black hair. Check out the big hands and feet, he's a big ole' boy! And Katie is doing wonderful, and already looking like she never had a 10 pound baby in her tummy.

More details will come later, so stay tuned.

Bartok the Magnificent

Sunday, March 09, 2008

Mary Evelyne has fallen in love with the old school, little-remembered non-Disney princess movie Anastasia. It happened to be on the free movies on Comcast On Demand for about a month in January and then it went off. She has been in withdrawal, so her Mama and Pops found it for her at Target this weekend. It is funny hearing her talk about the story, which actually involves the Romanov dynasty in Russia. She is particularly enthralled with a little bat character in the movie, Bartok, who is Rasputin's sidekick. The picture above is from a little spin-off move from Anastasia starring Bartok (as if Anastasia weren't obscure enough). He is a white vampire bat, but because he does not fit Mary Evelyne's expectations of what a bat looks like, she refuses to call him a bat and refers to him as the "piglyish, rabbityish guy". Yes, she has decided he looks like a mix between a pig and a rabbit and no matter how much her Daddy argues with her, she won't give in to the idea that he is actually a bat. Way to stick to your guns Mary E, even if you're wrong. Just like your mother!
