Two things happened this weekend that were memorable:

1. The Diaper Episode

Benjamin had a diaper blow-out of such epic proportions that we had to cut his onsie off.  Fortunately it was a plain white number and not a cute one that I was hoping to save. He timed it perfectly: it occurred exactly three minutes before guests were supposed to arrive for a dinner party. Thank god they were fashionably late. 

He was pretty darn proud of himself. 

Chris read it aloud to him before bedtime. 

The White House
Welcome to the world! Your arrival is cause for great celebration for your proud family. We wish you a long and happy life filled with chances to learn, ideas to explore, people to love, and dreams to fulfill. 

Sincerely, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

Oh sweet Baby.  Despite its problems, you are a member of a proud and wonderful country, filled with opportunity. I hope you have a gloriously happy future ahead of you.
