The Boy Changes Names

Eleven years ago today, the boy was born. At 1:19 pm. It was a Monday, as well. This is his first "official" photograph.



This is memere & pepere admiring their new grandchild less than two hours after he was born.



Doesn't memere look happy? Notice the look on the boy's face? Those eyes? Mom thinks that is pretty funny.


This one is for Karl. Dad put the glasses on him and mom thought that Karl would appreciate it. Apparently the boy was ahead of his time.


Here he is, asleep, (on a quilt made by Auntie) at memere's house. Mom figure that she couldn't


show you too many photos, or you would all gag. Here he is just last week, at Memere's, waiting for his blueberry pancakes.



Now, once upon a time, mom asked about a name for the boy, because he did not like "the boy". Mom got all sorts of ideas, but then the boy thought of his own new name. It is "PlusOne". For several reasons. One, Mr Karate is known as PlusRan to his college buddies, and PlusRan and PlusOne sounds cool. Two, he is now eleven, ten PlusOne. And Three, it is mom and dad PlusOne in the household. So there you have it. Happy Birthday PlusOne.

Oh yeah, mom says to tell you that she and Auntie worked for HOURS on the quilt. They have one row all done, the one with the extra big blocks. Mom has to make two more blocks to get another row all done. She has already given Auntie the block for that row.

I will tell you all about their quilting tomorrow. Just remember, don't believe EVERYTHING Auntie tells you. Older sisters can be quite superior about things. hee hee.

Happy Birthday, PlusOne!

It's a good thing you came up with your own original name or you might have ended up with a cutie one - AdorableSon or something. We like PlusOne.

Karl will love that picture! And I am sure he will want the glasses - they look like Winnie the Pooh glasses?
He and Ruis are still at the Spa but as soon as he gets home I will send him over - it might be a few days, though - they love it so much they don't want to leave!
So I took over for the time being!
