In the meantime, I'm having too much fun with this. Who knows what will be gone the next time Jason comes home!I've been paroozing Boston Craig's list "free" section, and you can find everything from leather couches to upright pianos, hundreds of posts a day, whereas Provo's "free" section has one or two items, like a free kitty or a broken washer! I'm pretty sure we'll be able to replace everything we need to once we get there, thank you wealthy college students of Boston.

Jason's Blurb: Here's the "About Us" section from their website: "Cambridge Associates is a privately held independent consulting firm that provides consulting and investment oversight services to more than 800 clients worldwide. We strive to help global institutional investors and private clients meet or exceed their investment objectives by offering proactive, unbiased advice grounded in intensive and independent research.

" So Cambridge focuses mostly on non-profit organizations, endowment funds, pension funds, museums, private investors, etc. I believe their large focus is the endowments, pension funds, and non-profit organizations however. Anywhoo, Thought we should let all know our news. Thanks for the prayers everyone! It really does work out in the end.

- He seems to really enjoy diaper changes. As soon as I start freeing him from clothes, he cheers up and gives me immediate smiles! I really want to buy this onsie at Target that says, "I'm happier naked".
- If you put a shirt over his head to dress him, he totally freaks out like he's being suffocated.
- He is quite cuddly. He'll let me spend all the time I need checking email, writing in my journal, blogging, etc. as long as he can lay on my shoulder. I'm getting really fast at typing with one hand--I feel for you Evan.
- His new trick lately is wiping his nose all over my shirt. He loves it.
- He used to take about 10 minutes to really wake up, but nowadays, he will pop his eyes open out of no where and be completely awake with no warning. It kindof startles me sometimes!
- He loves loves music. I recently won a giveaway for this "Cradle Rock" CD of Michael Jackson lullabies! (Thanks Crissa!) I can't wait to get it so Lincoln doesn't have to listen to me sing nothing but showtunes all day.
- He has chosen a bedtime of 8pm and wakeup at 6:30am sharp. He still needs to eat 2-3 times in there, but he'll go right back to bed, which is absolutely wonderful.
- During the day, he's a total cat-napper. 5-10 minute naps are his thing. It makes for speedy showers.
- My favorite cry of all is when he puts his head back and whines "mmmBahhhh" up in the air like a baby bird begging for worms :)

I think I pulled out his 3-6 month clothes just in time. (He'll be 2 months old on Saturday) I'm pretty sure he won't have to wear the same outfit twice for the entire 3 months! Somehow he ended up with quite a large and stylish wardrobe just this size!

I always thought it was so lame when married friends of mine would have a baby and suddenly their blog was nothing but posts of their child. 'Oh she did this today', or 'oh he said this today', or 'oh, she pooped in the toilet for the first time today'. And yet, I find every single post of ours lately being solely about the little man. Its true, he's the only interesting thing about us now! We've become the stereotype of a 'boring married couple with baby'!
