Sax and Sons major supporter Doug Swift

Stop by our apartment and you may find yourself (after you’ve washed your hands to the bone, been DNA screened, strip searched, and subjected to a polygraph) with an armful of babies. Here is Doug Swift, the mastermind behind our LotsaHelpingHands site, who dropped in with a crate of sweets for the sweet. The comatose, floppy dispositions of Levi (in green on the left) and Satch (in yellow on the right) are by no way attributable to Doug’s sterling personality. As if. The boys had just scarfed down nearly five ounces of juicy life between them and were drifting into never land. I had an itch to scratch, or some similar task, so I handed Doug little Satch even though his arms were already full of the small man’s younger brother, and this moment was born. 

Meanwhile, we’re soldiering on with glee. Gram Jane took off for Connecticut after a week of honorable service, sharing a few words with her replacement, Meema Suzy, on her way out. The latter will be down in the trenches with us for the next week. We’ve had visitors of all stripes dropping off groceries, veggie pies, carrot soup, chocolate – it makes us think we should have told people we were having triplets a LONG time ago (whether or not it was a fact). Our gratefulness continues to grow exponentially. I dream of all sorts of philosophical screeds to tack in this space, but the in-between moments continue to be a bit more fleeting than in times past. If all else fails, it’s well past time for an extended sermon on poop – right?

    Ah, so much poop. I’m so jealous! In a way.
