"And away they all flew like the down of a thistle..." - Clement Moore, "The Night Before Christmas"

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of the family, Blue Baby.
I know, we all thought Seg was going to adopt another little girl, but his heart led him to this little boy, cleverly dubbed Blue Baby.
Blue Baby was Seg’s Christmas present to himself, purchased from the Dollar Store where he and H had gone Christmas shopping for the rest of the family.
Let’s all welcome Blue Baby, as his sisters Mimi, Luce, and Valerie have done – with open arms and open hearts.
And try not to be as juvenile as I am whenever I hear Seg lovingly refer to “Blue Baby.”
Because I am a jerk, but you don’t need to be.

In other news, the ice skating went remarkably well, even if it was the most expensive half hour I have ever encountered.

Downtown parking: $5
Rink admission: $19
Hot chocolates after: $4
Being supported by brawny and toothless pro hockey players in my old age: Priceless.

I did think it would be another girl. Love Blue Baby though -- he's almost but not quite as interesting in his odd way as Mimi.

Ok, Baby Blue is at least presentable, unlike some of the others :-)

coming by to welcome blue baby .. and thanks for the motrin advice -- i thought they were all equally horrible, so i'm glad i usually give motrin (works better, yet does not come in the desirable grape meltaway tablets).
