The baby's nursery is finally complete. (Picture hanging not-with-standing)

We've got the crib, rug, curtains, dresser, nursing chair (not pictured) and of course the larger than life Teddy Bear to match his big brother.

Silas Learns a Lesson
October 25, 2014

Today was not the best day. Silas spent it overnight at the hospital after taking a hard fall off of his wagon. An MRI confirmed a skull fracture, but he's going to be all right. In case you can't tell from the picture, he sort of had a blast.

Baby's new room?
October 8, 2014

Kidding, of course. We got a shed to put all our bikes and tools in, to clear out the garage so we can park there for the winter. Hooray!

Nursery update - Curtains!
September 3, 2014

Next steps:

Jason needs to install an overhead light fixture/fan, and we need to move baby's bureau into the room. Silas is working on an art project for the baby. Besides that, it's mostly little things left to do! :)

Pregnancy Craving?
August 15, 2014

Dinner at Land Ho! Zoe decides to go for it and get the whole lobster. Jason is smart and knows that the only thing he wants is a mountain of fried oysters (not pictured).

Silas & crayon
August 3, 2014

More father son bonding time. This time Silas pushes the boundaries of the Crayola interactive crayon (which mimics your movement).

Week 24
We have a name!
August 1, 2014

But it's a secret! You'll just have to wait until baby's here to find out. :) Unless you can somehow pry it out of Jason or Silas... Zoe is like a Fort Knox of the baby name. I'll give you a hint. Like Silas's name, it only contains letters that have a Scrabble value of 1.

Silas & friend
August 1, 2014

Today Silas and daddy have the day to themselves while Zoe is spending the day with her students at NIST. We went to Chick-fil-a for their wonderful indoor playground.

Subaru & Bump
July 31, 2014

We picked up Zoe's new car today. It's a beautiful silver Subaru Forester. Zoe is also rocking a pretty good sized baby bump at this point. Wow, has it really been 24 weeks already?

Week 22
July 15, 2014

Today we had quite the scare. Zoe was in a car accident where she was broadsided in an intersection. Luckily there were no injuries to Zoe or the baby (she spent the evening at the hospital attached to baby monitors just to be sure), and Silas was not in the car. But it does look like the end of the road for the Mazda.

Oh, did I mention it was our 8 yr. anniversary today? Well it was. Not exactly the romantic evening we had envisioned.

20 Week Ultrasound
July 1, 2014

Today was the 20 week ultrasound. In addition to the usual health checks we were very excited to get another chance at gender identification and baby was very cooperative on that front. Silas is definitely going to get a little brother.

Baby is healthy, normal sized, and everything appears to be working correctly.

It's a BOY!
Back from Brazil
June 30, 2014

It's been a hectic few weeks for us despite the lack of updates. I just got back from Brazil this weekend and am recovering from travel and a lengthy illness that followed me the whole time. Zoe is coincidentally also recovering from the same thing, but she had it worse than me because she also had to deal with single parenting Silas the whole time (while pregnant). Brazil was amazing but I kept seeing dads and their sons playing together and singing and cheering. It made me homesick and also wish Silas could have been there with me.

Baby is doing well and has started kicking and moving a lot more. We are anxious for the ultrasound later this week. Will it be a boy as previously predicted?

Ramping Up for the World Cup
June 10, 2014

At the end of the week I will be leaving for Brazil for two weeks. This week was supposed to be a lot of preparation, but a few unexpected hurdles are complicating things. Yesterday Silas came down with a fever that topped out at 103.8 in the evening so we've been taking care of him, and to make matters worse Petra got into a fight with a neighbor's cat and seems to have been the loser. We had to take her to the Vet to get a few stitches in the behind and she spent all day there. Now she's back home and is being forced to wear the cone of shame. I'm just hoping this is the storm before the calm.

Facebook Announcement
May 27, 2014

As of today we are "Facebook Public", which is to say... it is finally open knowledge that we are expecting baby #2. Today is also the day that I launched this website for general consumption. If you were wondering what I do with my long weekends... now you know.

Second Ultrasound & NT Scan
May 13, 2014

What a cute profile! Baby was opening and closing its mouth, practicing for sucking down milk later maybe? The doctor said everything looked healthy! I always love hearing that.

Zoe feels better

Zoe started feeling a lot better around now. What a relief!

First Ultrasound
April 15, 2014

Today we got the first doctor approved confirmation that there is a real baby in there. It's healthy and growing! The doctor also changed baby's due date from November 22 to November 16 based on its size. I'm not convinced... I'm betting baby is just big like its brother! In any case, it looks like baby will most likely be out in the world in time for Thanksgiving!

Zoe feels pukey

This is around when Zoe started feeling like puking on her students most mornings. Fortunately, she managed to hold back and no actual puking occurred.

Positive pregnancy test
March 8, 2014

March 8 was the day we saw the second line on the pregnancy test. This also happened to be the day of our friend Jenn's wedding, at which Zoe was suspiciously not drinking. Congratulations Jenn! (And us!)

Welcome to theFoxAndFalcon!
February 15, 2014

Just like we did with RabbitBaby, this website is going to be a running blog of thoughts, pictures, and videos from the entire family as we prepare for our second child to join us. Facebook is nice, but this site will live on as the one central place to keep track of our journey.
