London Updates

Well here she is. London is already 3 months old. She has finally started to sleep through the night, which has been a great thing for Brittany and I. London is a very alert baby, and really likes music. She seems to prefer Classical and Jazz as of now.

We have a few trips to the swimming pool, which she loved. She loves the water. Bath time is one of her favorite times of the day. She has never cried during a bath, and really likes to lounge in her little bath. Her tub includes a little hammock in which she dangles her legs and arms over and splashes like crazy.

Her smile is amazing and melts my heart like nothing else can. However, you can't see the smile in the pictures posted above. She had been smiling like crazy for Brittany and I, but as soon as the photographer started snapping pictures, she became very serious. It was very funny. London's personality is already forming, and it is hilarious. She is a very happy baby, but very serious and intense at times.

More updates and pictures to come.

My Cubicle

“My Cubicle”
By: Matt Wall (?)
Parody on “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt

My job is stupid, my day’s a bore,
Inside this office from eight to four
Nothin’ ever happens, my life is pretty bland,
Pretending that I’m working, pray I don’t get canned.

My Cubicle, My cubicle
It’s one of sixty two
It’s my small space in a crowded place
Just a six-by-six board booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

When I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.

In My Cubicle, My cubicle
It doesn’t have a view.
It’s my small space in a crowded place
I sit in side there too. And sometimes I sit here nude.

Love Talk Starters

My wife and I are starting a book that we were given. It is "Love Talk Starters" by Les and Leslie Parrott. It is 275 questions to get your conversations going. Some questions are just for fun, some will educate you about your spouses life, and still others will drill down on some more serious topics.

Here is the first question in the book.

What is your idea of a dream vacation? Where would you go? How would you travel (or would you travel at all)? How long would you stay? What would you do with your days?

Feel free to answer. I would love to see all of your answers. If not, ask your spouse, a friend, or a family member and begin to learn more about that person.

They Are Coming Home

I have been batching it for the last week. Yes, I got a little more sleep because my baby girl London was not waking me up in the middle of the night. Yes, I got to eat pizza, hot dogs, and a couple of other foods that aren't so good for me. I went golfing, went to a Cardinals game, sat by the pool and read a book, and even went to a bar and ate some buffalo wings. These things are all very good.

However, I have missed my wife and my baby London like crazy. Today they are coming back home, and I am pumped. They have been gone a week and I am very excited to have them back. Brittany's youngest sister Domini just graduated from high school so they went back to Conrad, Montana to celebrate that event. The house seemed too quiet and empty without London's cooing or crying. The house didn't seem as alive without Brittany's smile or laugh. My house and my life are just more complete with them around.

You know it is very cliche, but your spouse honesty does become the other half of yourself. There were nights while Brittany was gone that I would just sit there feeling like I wasn't right. I just felt like something was missing.

So on my last day of living the bachelor lifestyle I plan on watching some sports, laying by the pool, and I may eat another hot dog. However, at 9 pm when the plane lands in St. Louis I can't wait to hold my wife and baby girl. I have missed them, and I am glad they are coming home.
