Middle

It wasn’t long after Poppyseed’s first birthday before Oatmeal and Lola began trying to have another baby.  Since they have always hoped for several children, they nicknamed this child “Middle Baby” since, after all, they expected it to be the middle child.  Just as they waited for Poppyseed’s birth to discover her gender, they waited until Middle was born to see that he was a boy!  On August 11, 2014 he made them a family of four.  Oatmeal named him John Rapsilver Griffin.
