The Magic Number (+1)

For those of you who do not know, Ian and I named our blog after the Bob Dorough song, "Three is a Magic Number", from the show Schoolhouse Rock. Since I was pregnant with Max at the time, and we were about to become a family of three, we decided that the song's pro-#3 sentiment was a fitting one for our blog to flourish under. However, several people have recently called my attention to the fact that with the addition of Maggie, we are now a foursome, thus rendering our much-loved title false and misleading. While journalistic honesty is important to us, we will not be renaming the blog -- the title graphic took Ian forever. Nor are we writing new lyrics for the song, as my sister Jessi suggested, because that takes time and brainpower, and I have two children under the age of two and therefore am short on both time and brains. And no, Granny, we will not be hurrying to have a third child solely to make our blog consistent with our lives. So where does that leave us? Well, I vote that we all pretend that we never noticed the discrepancy, and carry on in mutual self-deceived bliss. To aid me in distracting you from the potential scandal, I have included a photo-enhanced presentation about why we will be keeping Maggie in spite of the risk of bloggy upheaval. By the time you get to the end I bet you will have forgotten all about this nasty business.

She smells delicious ...

... she is a snuggly little lima bean ...

... and she proves that it is our stellar genes, rather than just a lucky fluke, that made Max, since we are now two-for-two in the awesome offspring column.

See? Don't you feel better? I bet you don't even remember what we were talking about before. In fact, I bet the cuteness of that last shot left you in such euphoric adorableness-overload that you don't even remember how to scroll back up to the top of the post and remind yourself what we were talking about. Why don't you just step away from the computer, taking the feel-good vibes that come from our totally aptly titled blog with you, and go enjoy the beautiful sunshine? I think that would be for the best, don't you? You have a nice day, now.

Oh what a beautiful blog to see,
even if the number in the family does not equal 3.
One more, one more does equal 4.
Granny would be happy to see many more.

This post is a reminder to me that I need to change my answering machine message.
