A Case of Mistaken Identity

Sorry I have been so pitifully absent, dear readers. I am away on vacation and will confess that I have been longing to check my Google Reader and to post a thing or two so you know how much I still love you.

We spent all day on Friday at a family reunion (fodder for many future posts, I assure you). Ian was meeting lots of my aunts and uncles whom he didn't remember meeting before, due to his short-term memory toddler ways. About half way through the day, I discovered that he was telling everyone that his middle name was Frank.

Frank? Really? Where did he get that? Give me a little more credit. I may like some unusual and old-fashioned names, but Frank?

My indignant husband (whose first name is the same as Ian's actual middle name) tried to convince him that he wasn't named Frank, but the more we talked about it, the more Ian insisted that he was Frank, ("to protect my true identity"). Where does he come up with this stuff?

I guess we'll have to give our next child Jared's name all over again. I hope she's okay with that!:)

Picture is of Ian being pushed on the swings by my aunt Kim, also known as Super Kimmie.

Are you hinting that another one is on the way? Or were you referring to Bronwn??? I'm intrigued... :)

Hilarious. I LOVE Ian :-)
Wish I was there with you guys.

Frankly, I think that kid is hilarious! :)
Can't wait to see you!

Give Frank a big hug from Grammy. Don't you just love great imaginations?

When Roger was about that age he decided to be Scott. And he named our mother Angus. So it could be worse.

Missing you all.

Does Frank have any aspirations to join the Mafia? It's such an Italian tough guy name. Can't wait to meet Frank myself, since I haven't seen him since he was a wee babe, a miniature Frankie.

I've been on vacation too so haven't been around lately. I missed your thing about the contest the first time around, saw it on your second mention, then got busy with getting ready for vacation and forgot again! Hmmm...I'll have to put on my thinking cap. :)

Mary said... there another one on the way?!?! And you already know it's a girl?!?!

sorry to get you excited unnecessarily. we are not expecting a baby of any gender. we do plan to have another baby and i plan for her to be a girl:).

i was wondering the same thing after that little girl plug! wouldn't it be nice if we could pick the gender of our kids? our next one would DEFINITELY be a boy!!

ian is a funny boy! kids come up with the funniest things! i love it!

Ah Michal, your Ian sounds like quite a character. AND it sound like you guys are having fun. Yeah! And, I too, got my hopes up a little at the suggestion of an other baby on the way. Nice that you can plan the gender. Someday you'll have to let us in on the secret. :)
