The Tragic Optimist

catching up with the rock hammer

I’ve been terribly remiss, I know. How about I make it up to you with some rock hammer for scale pictures?

We forgot to take a 6 month photo, but I have the stats.  She weighed in at 20 pounds, and was 28″ long (she’s fallen down to the 97th and 98th percentiles, respectively).

    Wow. At Lilly’s 6 month she was only 15lbs 8oz and 25in long. Lilly is going to be so TINY next to Hazel 🙂

  3. Hello! I know you don’t know me, but we’ve got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen’s blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We’re holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!
