I've Actually Kind of Liked My Middle Name

Tineke just had her 5 month shot on Monday.  Both kids watched and comforted her.  She didn't cry.  She screamed.  Dr. W. ended up blowing bubbles for Laika's benefit.  Then they watched me having some blood taken and they saw that it doesn't always make you scream.  They were really good about it all, and Laika still wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

The above picture was taken with the iPhone, hence the resolution.  Tineke has rice cereal all over her face.  She's also happy eating peas mashed up with the cereal.  She bounces away in between bites and her tiny little feet do the jolly jumper jig.  So much fun.

As we feed her we talk.

A:  Laika, you are so lucky you have Juniebelle as your middle name.  It's so pretty.
LJ: Yeah, like Tinkerbell.  What's your middle name?
A: Jeanne.
LJ:  Oooh.  That's a scary name.  Especially for little kids.  Like especially if a robot said it to you, like, "JEEEEAANNNNE."
LO (playing Lego and listening)  Yeah.  That would be a bummer.
