into one photo to compare. I didn't think about taking photos until 3
months, but I found a photo from January from right about when I got
pregnant, so that's my 0 months/"before" picture. As you can see, it's
getting scary big already, and I've still got 4 months to go!

"There's one flaw in the Marines' campaign. While they freely issue compensation vouchers, they don't have any actual money to give out yet. The cash, the Marines tell the villagers, will be here on July 1. The date has already slipped once, from mid-June, and some people doubt they'll ever see the money. 'If we don't pay them on the first,' Sgt. Blake said, 'it's going to be bad.' "
This article from the Wall Street Journal on June 18 talks about James, the No. 2 man:
After Battle in Afghanistan Villages, Marines Open Complaint Shop
Today there was more news from NPR, including a lot of James in the video! It's the one on the top left, at about 1:20:
Marines Try to Improve Image in Taliban Stronghold
Looks like they're in camping chairs in the background, ready for something fun.
James is right in the middle here, with the full vest and sunglasses.
I guess that's what a Mortar shell looks like!

Over the weekend Colin helped me set up a home office in the basement!
The carpet discarded from the Pergo install came in handy, and we bought a couple desks from Staples and made a mega desk out of the pair.
Now I just have to figure out what to do with all the crap that is conveniently out of frame (in the picture).

The Airport Extreme may have won some battles today, but getting it to behave with my Linksys router (as a WiFi extender) and printing over the home network is sweet sweet victory.
Backstory: while cleaning out the basement today I discovered the Airport which has been out of commission for 3 years at least.
Now the printer needs not migrate to the basement with the computer.

Right arm extended over head just like Jenna!
Lot of movement from the little one: kicking feet, opening mouth, resting its head on Jenna's aorta and bobbing its head to the beat.
We couldn't coax the baby into a position to get a full ventricle view of the heart or the face, so there'll be another limited sonogram in 4 more weeks.

We got new BlackBerries yesterday, so here's a photo from the phone this morning - we stopped off for breakfast on the way to work.
Haven't quite figured out how to blog directly from the phone, but it's awesome being able to send email and browse the web. I'm sure Isaac will figure that out today.
