Bath time!


Sullivan has mastered the art of sitting up on his own, so we’ve occasionally been putting him in the tub with Sophia. She seems to enjoy the company. More pictures can be found in the February 2012 photo gallery.

Big Sister and Little Brother

Sullivan likes being on his belly, and Sophia likes having her picture taken and being the center of attention.


Happy Boy!

I took this photo a week or so ago, and it’s by far my favorite photo of Sullivan. He’s such a happy baby. Mommy and I hope he stays that way!


Smilin’ Sullivan

Sullivan has been smiling for little while, and this time I was lucky enough to snap a picture of it.


Sullivan James Friel was born at 8:48AM on Thursday June 30th 2011.  His birth weight was 7lbs 5oz and he is 19.75 inches in length. Mommy and baby got to come home yesterday and everyone is doing fine. Mommy is in some pain, but it’s nothing a little bit of narcotics can’t take care of. Sullivan has been successfully executing all of his primary functions (eat, sleep, poop, pee). Sophia is adjusting much better than either myself or Christina had anticipated. We think that she’ll be a great big sister for Sullivan. I’ve uploaded lots of pictures from the hospital stay, as well as from the past few months. I’ve been slacking pretty hard at updating this blog so this is a pretty big data dump. New pictures can be found in the April, May, June (including the Happy Birthday Sullivan folder), and July galleries.


It’s a Boy!

Christina had her 20 week ultrasound today and we found out that we’re having a baby boy! Here is a picture taken from the ultrasound.

Baby 2.0

We’re having another baby! Christina is 8 weeks pregnant, and this image was taken from a sonogram performed today. Her doctor says everything is normal and the current due date is July 9, 2011.


Sophia sings and goes crazy to the opening credits of Olivia.

In the Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to a pumpkin patch to select our official Halloween pumpkin, as well as a personal sized pumpkin for Sophia. More pumpkin related pictures can be found in the October 2010 photo gallery.

Sophia playing with Opa

The love affair with boxes continues. Here is a video of Sophia (with an empty Mountain Dew box on her head) playing with Opa Slok.
