Jonah's One Month Birthday!

It has been over a month since our last entry. On July 25th we welcomed our new baby boy, Jonah David Lowe, into the world. He was 7 pounds 5 ounces and 20 inches long, which was bigger than the doctor had expected. He was born with a head full of fuzzy blonde hair that all the nurses just couldn't get over. We think he has Kristin's eyes and lips and MIke's little turned up nose. We think we've sent most of you pictures, but we've posted some recent ones.
Mike has been through three weeks of orientation and starts his official first day of school tomorrow. He has learned a lot thus far and is looking forward to his study of marketing and entrepreneurship and corporate innovation. (Sounds impressive, right?)

Kristin is enjoying being a new mom and has only had a few moments where she wanted to throw the baby out the window. She has made friends with the other MBA students' wives as they all mourn over the sudden disappearance of their husbands to the Kelley school.

We still love Bloomington and are continuing to discover yummy restaurants, beautiful parks, and interesting people. We have discovered that the Chocolate Moose has the best ice cream in town, that Bryan Park is great for strolling with a baby and Saturday night movies, and that MBA students still love to kick back one too many drinks at social events.
Until next time! (Which will hopefully be brought to you sooner than a month.)
