Nineteen years ago I was suffering through a 9+ month pregnancy in the midst of a heatwave in Bremerton, WA. Jessica was due on 7/31, but we joked around about her hearing me scolding the older kids that summer, and she figured she would just stay right where she was, and stay out of trouble. The entire nine days she was overdue, the temps were well above 90 degrees and it was the worst time to be pregnant and overdue. The day after she arrived the heatwave broke and it was the best time to come home with a brand new baby. It feels like it was just yesterday, and now she's a mother herself.
Here's some shots of today's fun:
Yes, it's as good as it looks. Amazingly enough it really isn't very sweet but light and cinnamony.

When Hailey didn't like being put down, grandpa took her for a walk out to the corn, which apparently was rather fascinating. After the stroll to the corn, grandpa brought her back inside and put on a Dutch progressive rock/jazz cd for her, which she apparently loved. Miss Hailey already has grandpa completely wrapped around her finger, but he wont admit it, yet. :-)
