Taking a timeout

Sometimes it's just fun to be like Brady and lie on the ground and hang out. Often, it's the only rest we can get with him. His motor never stops so when he takes a pit stop, we do too.

Sunday with friends

On Sunday Brady hosted a play group with his friends that he met through his mom's mommie groups. Lots of fun was had by all.

Rubber Duckie, you're the one...

Brady loves bathtime, almost as much as Ernie.

Back from illness

After 7 days of chills, fever, coughing, sore throat, headaches, and pure lethargy, I've come to the conclusion that the flu is indeed something that you do not want to get. However, I've also come to the conclusion that if it wants to get you, it will. This year was the FIRST year that I got the flu shot in as long as I can remember and of course I get the flu. It comes fast and leaves slowly, so hope you don't get it.

The upside of it is that when you are able to maintain consciousness, you can spend all day in bed watching the NFL Network and nobody can stop you. Now THIS is a good use of TV! NFL History comes to life right in front of you with their new America’s Game series. I watched the season summaries on the ’81 Niners, the ’94 Niners, the ’96 Packers, and the ’82 Redskins. And if your name happens to rhyme with Ho Gussillo then you really want to watch/TIVO the ’82 Redskins one. It was great. I also learned everything I need to know about the upcoming NFL draft and more. For instance, Brady Quinn ran a faster 40 yard dash time than the speedy Troy Smith from THE Ohio State University. Also, did you know that Calvin Johnson’s left foot has six toes, which is why he cuts to the right much faster than anyone else ever has in history? Okay, I made that up, but you can still learn a lot on this channel. They should make it mandatory for school children to have to watch it for 30 minutes a day, maybe build it into social studies or something.

Anyway, I'm finally back on my feet and almost back to normal. I snapped about 20 pictures over the weekend so that's a good sign. Time to celebrate and drink.

Brady has perfected the vertical bottle hold to ensure every drop comes out (most don't learn this until college)

Blue Reindeer

I wasn't feeling so well today, so my parents came over to take care of Brady (and me) at our house. Brady, on the other hand, was full gear all day. Like Dad, he didn't get changed out of his PJ's either. We also both wore our reindeer outfits.

Mii outa here

Things have been tough around the house lately, with Irene's tax season in crunch time and my work just busier than ever (which is why our blog rate is also down). So we've resorted to using the Wii for workouts because we simply cannot get to the gym right now. So far so good. Boxing is the best workout and three 3-round bouts is basically 27 minutes of straight cardio work. However, when we do it during the day, we need to keep an eye out for Brady...

Wii are Familii

Okay, I swear this will be the last blog entry for now about the Wii (I realize it is now three in a row), however, this past Saturday was just really funny. It started with Irene going to shop at a local baby clothes sale (not the funny part) and me working with my work team to do some system upgrades (really not the funny part). Around 8am our internet network at our house flaked out, which I had to fix to do my work, so I called for reinforcements (my parents) to come take care of Brady while I troubleshot. When they arrived though, Brady decided he would take a nap, so I decided to show them the Wii.

The next two hours I worked, Brady slept, and my parents played with the Wii. My dad continuously exclaimed, "I can't believe I can't beat this guy!" when playing tennis. Some time later in the morning my sister-in-law Judy came over, then my nephew Brendan, then my brother, then my other nephew Ryan. All in all, everyone got some good practice with the Wii and now we have a character for everyone in the family on our system. Good fun! Who said video games were not good for family bonding?
