The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

5 February 2006

Highly Jacksonian

Jackson, very earlyAs promised, an early picture of Jackson Marshall Hill, firmly established as Grandchild #3, and presumably not fazed by an abundance of bloodwork in his first week, motivated by suspicions of jaundice. (It did drag him back into the hospital for overnight observation, but he's out and about; this being Russ and Alicia's second child, they've learned to outfit him with generic overalls instead of paying through the nose for OshKosh, b'gosh.) He has no idea what he's in for, of course, but how many of us did at the age of 0.7 week? I've got 2700-odd weeks to my credit, and I still don't know what's waiting around the bend. (A larger version of this photo, in which he doesn't look especially yellow to me anyway, can be had by clicking on the smaller one; sensibly, he's not fond of flash.)

He may have plain overalls, but he has authentic Spiderman bedgear.

My kind of parents!

When you mean he's not fond of flash do you mean "flah photography" or "flash animation" (since the picture doesn't move) or "flash aka Wally West or Barry Allen" (because of the spidey blankie)?

Just needing things clarified

Or, for that matter, Flashdance.

(What a feeling.)
