Joe’s Very Own Blog

June 25, 2009

I started this blog as an outlet for all the silly things I like to write about. That was two years ago.

Last year, when our sweet boy came on the scene, the blog became “all Joe, all the time.”  (His fans demand it, and who can blame them?)

So now, all things Joe will live at And at this blog, I will resume writing about whatever silliness pops into my head.

Which may still be a lot of Joe. We’ll see!


Fathers Day

When Patrick wakes up, he’s going to watch this and then open presents.

We’re sending much love to all the Dadas in Joe’s life — Grandpa Mike, Papa Burt, Uncle Rich.

Hope your day is great!

The Big Day!

Birthday Terror

June 3, 2009

There’s still a week before Joe’s birthday, but while visiting his grandparents in New York, we decided to get some cupcakes and begin the festivities.

It took Joe a while to warm up to the idea:


He eventually discovered that the frosting is pretty tasty, and not that scary after all. Silly kid.

Vote for Patrick and Joe!

One of my fellow Richmond Mommies is a really talented photographer and is running a little “Father and Child” contest on her blog. The prize is a photo session for the family, and I really want one to commemorate Joe’s first birthday!

So please, if you have a moment, go to her blog and vote for Number 18. (If you want to check out the competition, here they are.)
