Blaise loves to rock and roll. (Well, roll at least!) He is happiest squirming around in just his diaper. Here he is playing on my old comforter. (Cath and Jen, does this bring back memories?) Speaking of you girls, Blaise can't wait to meet his newest friends, Sonny and Maddie!

Imagine our surprise when Stephanie called to invite us to pizza! Our reply: "Yes!" and "Yes!" Steph was in town for a law conference and decided to orchestrate a mini reunion. Cat, Kristen, Caroline, and Aunt BJ attended. We talked baby quite a bit, as Kristen is due in less than two weeks! We made sure to get a picture of Aunties Stephanie and Bridget for the blog.
Mom and Pops had a big night out on Saturday night. Danny took us to UD for some excitement. (Blaise was snug as a bug at home with Grand Mare. No worries!) Let the party begin! Our first stop was Danny's house on campus. I am disappointed that I forgot to snap a picture- it was a bachelor pad at its finest. Next, we toured a house called "Slanty." Old Slanty got it's name from the fact that everything inside leans to one side- the steps, sinks, refrigerator. (G-Pops, help!!) Slanty was partying pretty hard, so we took a quick walk through and stopped for a photo-op outside. Next stop, Tim's! Tim's is apparently "the bar" for UD students. (I would equate it to Finnegan's for our SMC/ND readers.) Aunt Maggi worked her magic at the bar and was able to get the group free drinks. (Only a Diet Coke for me, the D.D. and Blaise's food source.) Of course the family outing wasn't complete without Becky and Pat. We will see you soon! Speaking of family- I swear I saw Uncle Danny W. at the bar! I normally wouldn't be volunteering this ugly pic for the blog- but if you look behind me you'll see the Danny look-alike getting smooched by a girl at the bar! (Hey Danny- this is supposed to be a family site.) See the resemblance? Thanks to Danny and Maggi for taking out the folks and helping us feel like "we've still got it." Ha Ha
After a late arrival on Friday night (1:00!!) Blaise surprised Mom, Dad and Grand Mare with a new trick- blowing bubbles! Papa Clark gifted us with a box of clothes that used to belong to Tommy and his siblings growing up- we all chuckled upon finding the dress Aunt Joanie brought back from Guatemala. (I'll save that pic for your wedding slideshow, Blaise.) Aunt Maggi did her fair share of holding Blaise. In his four months she has visited him four times- very impressive since she lives in CT! Grand Mare & Lar were excellent hosts. Blaise is hoping next time he visits he can hop on the Harley! (Just kidding, Mimi!)

While home, we visited the pumpkin farm that our family has gone to for years. The ladies working got a good chuckle when G-Pops pulled up. Catastrophe-prone G-Pops had a bout of bad luck with his past purchases from the pumpkin farm. One year he poked out a panel of the garage door with the corn stalks that were tied to the top of the car. More recently, the house nearly burned down when a bale of hay on the porch caught on fire from a nearby jack-o-lantern. G-Pops decided against the corn and hay- and instead played with the barn kitties. They sure were curious about Blaise!
We spent the weekend in Michigan and attended Meaghan and Rocque's wedding. Blaise was ever so stylish in his new shirt from Uncle Danny. Doesn't "Nana The Great" look great at 86? Pictures of the bride and groom to come... they are still on G-Pops' camera.

The frog pajamas were Tommy and my very favorites on Blaise. We had to retire them this week- Blaise is moving on up to his 6 month outfits. One last picture of the beloved frogs! (Grand Mare- look at how Blaise loves his frog blanket! He sleeps with it now!)
