Restraining Device

Toni was out of town and Sawyer was being a little cranky tonight.....

I'm only kidding, folks.

So, I got tired of listening to the "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" about 2 months ago.  I ended up buying some lullaby versions of some songs that I've listened to in the recent past.  They still kind of suck, but are heads and shoulders above the usual baby stuff.  Here's a sampling......

Radiohead - No Surprises (Lullaby)

AC/DC - Back In Black (Lullaby)

Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight (Lullaby)

Give Me Room

Here's a photo Toni took (notice the lack of focus) of Sawyer sleeping. Needless to say, I gave up the swaddling mess quite a while ago. This girl likes to spread out.

I'm glad she's sleeping in the crib. I can tell that Sawyer will be even more of a bed-hog than her brothers Ike and Blackjack.

Bob Dylan - Lay Lady Lay

The Birds and Bees

We're not the only ones raising a family at this house.  We've had this folk art birdhouse for over 5 years and it never attracted a bird.  Looks like our luck has turned.  It's tough to catch a photo....anytime I get close enough for a shot, they duck back in.  Looks like there are at least 3 chicks.  Grandma Russo says that it's a family of sparrows.

(Click on the photo to see the larger version and a glimpse at one of the chicks.)

Doc Watson - The Coo-Coo Bird
