Pic of the Day

Lately when Elisa wakes up from her nap she doesn't want to get out of bed right away.
She likes playing in her crib for a while before I take her out.

Pic of the Day

I'm going to try and post a picture a day while Carolyn is away so she doesn't feel too left out from all the fun Elisa & I are having.

Home Alone

This morning, Elisa & I dropped Carolyn off at the airport so she could go on vacation in Phoenix for a week. We had bought this plane ticket so Carolyn & Elisa didn't have to be home along while I went to a conference, but my conference got canceled. It turned into the perfect opportunity for Carolyn to get a vacation. So, Leesi & I are home alone. I think we'll manage.

Making Pancakes

Tonight Carolyn enlisted Elisa's help while making pancakes for dinner. Needless to say Elisa had a great time.

Before moving to Arkansas, we bought a new Dell laptop. We've had problems with it in some form or another since it was 2 months old. Now it even at 3 years old yet and it's shot. I thought I'd at least get 5 years out of it, but it looks like it's done. I've had it worked on, only to come back in worse shape. I'm going to try one more shot at repair, but it looks like the motherboard is basically falling apart. Any recommendations on a good replacement would be? I'm seriously considering a Mac at this point.

Another Great Commercial

As many of you know, I love a funny commercial. This one popped up this week and I think it's great. A little backgroud for those who don't follow the NBA, LeBron throws chalk at the begining of each game (as immortalized in this ad which was filmed while playing the Blazers in Portland). So, in this commercial Kobe & LeBron are puppets and roommates.

The second in this series can be seen here.

Sunny Day

Today we had a great afternoon of adventure. Our church had their annual family picnic today, so we spent lunch and early afternoon hanging out with all the friends from church. Then later we went for a bike ride. Just this week I got Elisa's kid seat on my bike and she loves it. She spends the ride pointing at birds, barking with dogs, and reaching out to play with my shorts (giggling every time she does this). This is the first time in what feels like years (since Carolyn first got pregnant with Elisa) that we've been able to ride together and it is great. May is such a great time for us, I still have projects for work, but it is completely flexible. Check out some great pictures of Elisa eating ketchup here on Carolyn's blog.

Friday wasn't a great day for Elisa. She was just edgy and a little whiny all day. Carolyn couldn't figure out why, but it was a long day. Well, we figured it out that night. She is sick, again. She threw up in bed, again, and had a fever. She's been sleeping a lot this weekend. Today Carolyn & I went to church in shifts and Elisa seems to be feeling better today. She had a long nap this morning and is going on 2 1/2 this afternoon.

Carolyn & I looked at each other last night and we both felt like Elisa's been sick so much lately. 14 out of the last 24 days. I didn't realize it was that much. We've been to the Dr., had tests, and have no answers. We'll go again this week now that it's back.

I was forwarded this great video of a bicyclist named Danny MacAskill who can do amazing things with a bike. Control like I've never seen before. I think anyone who has ridden a bike or tried to do anything pertaining to balance will appreciate this video.

It's a Boy

We found out this week that Baby Brock is a boy! We're really excited that Elisa will have a baby brother. Things are moving along well for Carolyn even though she had hoped to feel better at this point. His due date is September 30th, but I don't expect to see him until October.
