Last year at this time we went to this rodeo, in St. Paul. If you live here in PDX, I highly recommend checking it out this week. It is so much fun, and its so close to the city. Maybe we'll take WKF to his first rodeo. Last year we went on a weeknight, after work - a very do-able evening activity. So much fun!
Pendleton Round Up. which is every year in September. That is something that everyone in Oregon should do some year...it was awesome. If you go, stay the night and make sure to hit the cowboy breakfast and ride the mechanical bull (see GS on the bull below - go girl!). Oh, and gear up in a cowboy outfit...that is the best part!!! Below are some of our pix from that trip. Plan ahead, its hard to get rooms in town. I suppose you could camp if you are into that...

I think it is so cool that you are online reading my mom's blog and sending us emails. I cannot wait to meet you. I cannot wait for you to hold me tight. I love you so much, my mom and dad keep telling me how fun you are. I cannot believe the stories from your 80th bday party....and I heard your 85th was pretty fun too.
your great grandson - WKF
So here is the confession - I have racked my brain and I cannot think of a single blog-worthy topic that is un-baby.

Daddy-O loving on WKF
WKF has 2 grandperes - both love him very much. One will teach him French and skiing, the other will teach him hunting and football.
Z$ has a rad dad.
Papa F and the F boys (this is pre WKF...we must get a new photo soon with ALL the F boys!)

That said, I think we could all learn something from this quick read. My favorite part of the article is this line - "Real life is messy, cluttered, often in need of a good mopping - but a lot more vibrant, too."
O is doing an amazing amazing job of keeping Baby and I healthy. He has also taken on ALL house duties (laundry, food, dishes, cleaning, recycling, watering, decluttering, etc. etc.). He is doing a great job - much better than I do. He is taking it very seriously, because when he steps up to do a job, he always gives it 100%.
He doesn't care as much about a clean house...but he knows what it means to me, and he knows I'm much more likely to relax and let myself recover if the house is in order.
Vibrant indeed!!!!!!!!!! Here is some vibrant for you...

Tonight we had to take him back to hospital for a big weigh in, to ensure he was packing on the ounces. And....he has been! Docs were really impressed by his progress. We were proud proud parents! (Did I call us PARENTS?!?!?!?).
And...good news...he is back up in the 6's...that was the goal.
Go WKF, you stud.
One thing I love love love about O: he laughs in his sleep. Belly laughs. It is so cute.Check out this picture of O's son, which I captured with my phone early this morning. The kid was having a little laugh of his own while he slept.
I think he sleeps too much, I want him to play with me more. I will talk to the doctor about this today when we go in for a check up.
I wake up in the middle of the night and i just wait for him to wake up.
Sleep deprived? Whatever...I seriously want to sleep less and play with him more. I love that he feeds every 2 hours around the clock...it ensures that he and I get lots of quality time.
Experienced moms tell me that I will get tired, but as of today (Day 6) I am still on a WKF high, cannot get enough of him! I don't want to be the mom that cries about lack of sleep...I find that to be annoying. Remind me of this if I start crying about lack of sleep, ok?
A few random thoughts from WKF...
When will I meet Mimi in person? They tell me that she was fighting off a cold, so its nice of her to keep her distance. But I must say, the anticipation is just killing me. I live so close to her...and yet we have not yet met. Her fab fiance (Uncle Bobby) came to see me in the hospital...but no Mimi. Mimi made all of my welcome home signs...but where has she been?! Last night she and I had a date...my dad brought me out to the front porch around 11:30pm, we turned on the spotlight so Mimi could see me...and she and I said good night from afar....
hospital gown. She wore a super cute night gown, even for the emergency surgery. Countless nurses and docs (with good intention) tried to encourage her to sport a gown, but she politely declined all offers...she had a pile of cute gowns of her own and she was determined to wear them. She wanted the docs to focus on being docs, and she could focus on the one thing she could control, her outfit. Dad and I think she's a bit ridiculous, but she is the princess of this family...we are just the dudes, so we let her be.
here at MissBoQuiss's blog. And Portland Sunshine got well over 100 hits yesterday when mom finally started posting about me. For such a small guy, I'm a pretty big deal. Look out world...
