A blog about a kid. I like her.

It's already painfully obvious to regular Aletheia Update viewers, but for cryin' out loud, this kid is getting chunky! At a doctor's visit this week she weighed in at 11 lbs., 10 oz. Time to start learning how to crawl so she can work off some of those calories.

I swear we aren't feeding her ice cream. I can't promise that her great-grandparents aren't.

Bonus Photo

I didn't really like today's picture, so I thought I'd throw in the runner-up in yesterday's photos. A free bonus with your subscription! Next we'll be giving out football phones.

We fixed the slight red eye problem in the next to the last photo, "So There!" Friends and relatives who had downloaded that one might want to get the corrected one.

Yes, we have obsessive-compulsive and perfectionist tendencies in our family. But I'm going to work every single day on overcoming my perfectionism, doing whatever it takes until I have eradicated it completely. Nothing less than that will suffice.

I've started using Flickr for photo hosting. If you click on the recent pictures, you'll be taken to my Flickr site where you can download the photos at various sizes. (At least, I think I set it up correctly for that...if it's not working for you, let me know in the comments.)

So There!

If I knew what I was doing, this would be the new page banner.

Sadly, I don't know what I'm doing.

Ladies of the House

See, the great thing about taking pictures every single day is that occasionally you get lucky and capture a moment like this.

On Her New Ladybug Quilt

The quilters' group at our church presented a custom-made ladybug quilt to Aletheia tonight. It's really beautifully done--a wonderful addition to the nursery.

Big Smile

The exposure is a little wonky in this one. I took it in the dark and fixed it as much as I could, given that I have no decent software and don't know anything about photography. I'm happy you can tell that it's a baby.

Trip to the Mountains

Aletheia had her first overnight trip yesterday! She took a trip to a mountain getaway to see her Uncle Mark, Aunt Lisa, First-Cousin-Once-Removed Patrick, and First-Cousin-By-Marriage-Once-Removed Tiffany. It was their first time to see Aletheia, and, sensibly, they agreed that she was pretty, smart and strong.

Sorry for the missed update yesterday. I've been away in the mountains on a ministry retreat, where cell phones don't work and internet access is a little tricky. This picture was taken on Sunday, like the previous one.

Aletheia Update News:
Okay, so we aren't yet the most famous baby blog on the internet, but if you do a Google search for "Captain Stupendous," we're the fourth hit! Even better, google "Uncle Kasey," with or without quotes, and we're #1! My brother is now the most famous uncle on the internet. Congrats Kasey!
