This song title ranks as Mike's third worst song out of five.

Tonight we are looking for antiques online to use in our kitchen island. That's right, we have started work on the house at the family farm. He is in a house gutting frenzy and is pretty happy about it.

While searching for inspiration we came across this gorgeous island created by b-arch studio sabrina bignami. I think she/he/it/they are in Italy, so they won't care if I try and steal part of their idea for our kitchen.

I wonder how much it would cost to have someone build it...I wonder if I could build it...probably would take quite a while with a new baby in tow. Anyway, here it is in all of it's glory.

Well, this is it. We ended 2010 off with a bang by having a baby. Our best moment yet. He is beautiful and perfect and a complete time waster because all we want to do is hold him or stare at him. He came with masses of dark hair and it's only gotten longer in five weeks. Here he is fresh from the bath.

It's amazing how a person's perspective instantly changes. I'm so in love with this kid it still makes me cry. I've become a real crybaby; but only about happy stuff. I'm so lucky.

Oh, and for the record, all those people who said kidney stones were worse than giving birth, lied...
