The first generation of toddlers to do this

The other day I picked up my monitor, pulled the unit off, and placed the end in my ear. Then I walked around the house with the piece in my ear, while holding to plug in my hand................. my first ipod.

I am told that it will also be my last.

USS Albacore (like the Tuna)

Mom and I went exploring in Portsmouth New Hampshire yesterday and one thing we did was tour the USS Albacore submarine. Here's me at the periscope. We were definitely at periscope depth. Mom said that she felt like she was in the old cheesy war submarine movies she saw as a kid. It was commissioned in 1953 and it could hold 55 passengers.

My friend Ashley turned two last week

I like this one above because she's playing the harmonica we gave her for her birthday while she's playing.

This one above is of Ashley posing for mom's camera.

Today I cried a lot.
Mom said her patience was thin, but I already knew that.
I am sick, but I can't talk about it.
(If only mom would read this blog we could communicate so much more effectively)

Today's highlight according to my mom, (which is unfortunately the only highlight we had today)
is that she heard me whining from the other room, only to find me stuck in the clothing hamper, standing straight up. My leg was stuck on the rim, but let me tell you folks, I did it!

Have a great night,

I've been thinking

Folks. Lately I've been taking time out of the day to just sit and think. . . 'cause I'm going be a big brother! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Mom is Pregnant!

She just had her first doctor's visit and the baby's heartbeat was strong. Praise our God who loves to give us good gifts!

It sure pays

It sure pays to work in a wealthy area.

Well, okay, just on trash day.

Last week Mom snagged a stroller that was placed out by the side of the road for people like her that like the word "free".

Mom didn't just snag ANY stroller. This stroller happened to be a dusty Italian made Peg Perego stroller. Now, most of us are far from knowing anything about the economic levels of strollers (and we're fine that way) but it is one of those areas in life that a name like Peg Perego gets you the stroller of your dreams. It's the stroller that you mocked in Target as you glanced at the price tag of $500 .

Dust and a few years of age to break it in, Mom and I just hosed it down in the shower and now it's taking a leisurely dry on the porch. A bit of WD40 and we'll be set!

So take heart trash pickers and back off trash-picker scoffers. What's the best thing you ever snagged?

The Real Deal

So, here's the real deal of what Nick and Aimee look like, both as a human kaleidoscope as well as their normal happy posture. They are Michiganites.

Funny story....

So mom fell asleep last night.
About 20 or so minutes after she fell asleep, she woke up because her mouth was dry.
She reached for the cup of water and took a gentle swig.
BUT (and here's the kicker) she fell asleep again before she put her cup of water back on her nightstand.
And there she slept, (for about 10 minutes), with a cup of water balanced on covers and such until WHAM! it fell over and instantaneously soaked both of my parent's shirts, sheets, and under-roos.
Dad jumped from the bed yelling "What the heck was that!"

and there it is. A funny story. True too.

Lardflys just doesn't sound the same

Here are some butterfly pics for you. Why are they called butterfly?

We went to the Museum of Science today because Nick and Aimee gave us free tickets! (waah-hoo!). I have many pictures heading your way, but I'll start by posting some of of us with the mirror exhibit and the rather large grasshopper.

A special Shout Out

This is a special Momma's Day shout out to all the women out there that may not have children of their own this Mother's Day, but are the spiritual mother to many.

In particular, I'd like to say thank you to Sandra, who offers extra help to my mother and father during the church service. Thank you Sandra!


(Here's a pic of me totally knocked out in la la land this morning at church when Sandra had me in the nursery).

The Whig Party

I thought I'd post an old series just for the hey of it (and because mom hasn't taken any pictures of me in weeks).

Recent update: I now have a hairy chest, eat a leg of lamb every day for breakfast, and can parse Greek sentences. I also have a degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania (grabbed it when we last visited) and can spin four basketballs on my right hand alone.

Needless to say, mom and dad have decided not to worry about the fact that I still have a vocabulary under 20 words.

Have a good one,

The Lentil

Great job on the poll eh! Lentil it is and what a fascinating testimony to God's intricate work as he forms us in our mother's wombs. Way to go V-girl.
