Jack's 1st Science Fair

Jack had his first science fair. He did a great job with his project-Boat Float-and a fantastic job explaining his project to the attendees.

Easter 2010

Jack and Aiden had fun coloring eggs and discovering what the Easter Bunny had left in their baskets. They were less enthused about a family picture.

Rocket Man

Rocket season is upon us. Ben kept a safe distance away from the explosives.

Bosom Buddies

Jack and Aiden share their favorites - a black and white cookie after an afternoon of bike riding.

Ben at 6 weeks

Let the laughs begin...

Ben's Baptism

Ben is the only baby I know that actually liked the water being poured over his head. We're hoping that means he headed for an olympic swim team and not a monastery. Here he is with Godmother Catie and Godfather Ben.

Cousin Connor's Baptism

Ben slept through and we forgot to take a picture of him, oops...but heres one of the handsome duo and of course Cousin Connor and Aunt Lisa.

Ben's 1st Bath

It took a while thanks to a stubborn umbilical cord
, but Ben finally had his 1sy real bath shortly after his 1 month birthday.

Ben's 1st week

Everyone is getting adjusted to the new baby. Jack and Aiden are a little disappointed he can't play action figures yet.

Ben meets the batmobile

Most people bring their tank suv to drive their baby home from the hospital. Not daddy. He showed up in the batmobile. We thought the 1st trip should be memorialized,

Welcome Baby Ben

The newest addition to the family. Benjamin Robert, February 3rd at 10:09 a.m. 8 lbs. 4 ozs.20 1/2 ins.


Santa came through for the boys. They had a great Christmas. They especially liked the rockem sockem robots from Aunt Catie. And no, you won't like Aiden when he's angry.


Jack and Aiden had pancake breakfast with the big man in red. It's the only time we've seen Aiden speechless.

The Lil Bakers

Jack and Aiden got into the holiday season by baking cookies and pies. Cape and snotty nose apparently required.

Apple Picking

The boys worked hard with Aunt Caylin and Coco to pick the perfect apples. Jack even dressed in John Deere theme colors.

The Batmobile

Daddy got a new car. No comment.

Jack's 1st Performance

Jack did a great job in his first performance at school. He was super on the spinner and on the tightrope.

I'm a rocket man.

Allen's Meadows was a glorious rocket launch site until it was taken over by soccer and lacrosse.

So long farewell...

Everyone got together to help Aunt Ali move from NYC to Baltimore and to give her a proper send off. If you cannot tell from attire, we were not expecting this to be memorialized.

The Professor

If it were not for the binky he would already look ready for college.


The boys had a great time with some of their family on New Years. (Don't worry that just sparkling cider Aunt Catie is giving to Baby New Year Aiden.) Jack was having a good time until the paparazzi showed up. He just wanted to get back to Mario Kart racing. One final picture of Aiden get his new year's kiss from Daddy.

No - I'm Batman.

Merry Christmas

Let's pretend it is still December 25th. Here the boys are opening their presents (and a picture of them actually acting brotherly). Aiden at first was deathly afraid of his dinosaur, but Jack had no issue jumping right on.
