To my friends who have or will have babies: beware. Johnny and I might give you gifts such as this onesie:

That little guy is our friends' (Ryan + Amy) baby boy, Elliot. Back in January, when J. and I were in Austin, we found that onesie at Parts & Labour (on S. Congress), a shop that only sells locally-made items. You have to know Ryan and Amy to understand, but that onesie fits both of of them (and Elliot) to a tee. Very cool family of six. You might remember one of Elliot's siblings - his brother Ian - who cooked a dish of peas for me. Here is Ian as a baby. The Birsinger children aren't really hurting in the looks department. I mean, look at their parents (click photo to see larger):
