Easton Jet Jones - Updated for 1 month b-day

Easton was born on April 29, 2009 on his Grandad's birthday, hence the name "Jet" for the middle name since that was Grandads passion, we liked the name, and sadly we already used his middle name on Aidan "Keith".  You probably wonder why we didn't use the name "Burnell", well, it just didn't work out, Jet did.

We are so grateful to have him with us and that he and Mommy are both healthy and happy.


Born: 4:20 AM

Weight: 9 lbs 8 oz - YOWZA!

Length: 22 inches

Hair: Dark and lots of it

And Easton on his 1 month birthday, unfortunately we didn't take many pictures on this day but the one we got was less than optimal, gratefully he's innocent still:

That picture of him with that bird a flying is awesome. He is so handsome. I love your layout by the way with the collage of pictures - VERY COOL!!

Thanks for the compliment on the layout, I finally found motivation and my sis Goober helped by sending me some sites. It was far easier than I realized ironically.

I promise I didn't even stage that bird, Alicia told me about it and I ran in with the camera, totally funny.

Congratulations!!! He is adorable. Love that "sign language"! LOL I've been checking your blog for weeks. Glad you finally updated it!

Asquared said...

Thanks Vic - I have like three blogposts started but have not had the mental energy to finish them. Not that I'm depressed but just not STOKED like I needed to wrap it up. I am now finally more motivated and will post some more recent events.

I haven't seen the blog for in awhile and I love the new layout! How the heck do you do cool stuff like that?

Asquared said...

@laura - Thanks for the layout compliments. Here's what I did:

1. I figured out how wide my blog table was by viewing the sourcecode, I need 700 pixels for the "body" of the blog.

2. I exported all of my top rated family pictures as thumbnails from our Creative Memories software.

3. Then I imported them into a big image(1600 pixels wide) I created in my photoshop like software and just moved them all over on the sides of where my viewable blog table would be.

4. Export the finished image and stored it in on my webserver (or you could store it on photobucket etc)

Your sweet little baby is so cute. I love the picture you have of him. And by the way, I'm a big "what?" on the blog instructions. LOL
