Superman Obsessions

It is pretty obvious that our family has a strange Superman obsession. For heaven's sake, C is named after his alter ego! Good thing too, because no one makes fun of a kid whose named after The Man of Steel.

My beloved husband was permanently inked with the super hero's emblem in October 2007.
M thinks it's cool, displayed here with her own not-so-permanent, pink version:

Both kids were Superman for Halloween in 2008, C at a mere 11 days old! Take note: although M's costume is actually "Super Girl" she insisted that she was, in fact, Superman:

Even our extended family knows of our love of Superman. Two different aunts bought C Hallmark ornaments for the tree:

"Faster than a speeding bullet.
More powerful than a locomotive.
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Look! Up in the sky!
It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Superman!"



  1. It's so cute.
    I know a kid named Thor & another kid named after The Crow. I was named after Emily Dickinson & I know people named after Katherine & Audrey Hepburn.

  2. I still love the costumes on that dynamic duo...I know I know...a Batman reference!? The little pink tattoo is too cute!
