DAY 256: What About Your Beaver!?

Recently I’ve noticed little marks on the crib railing. I assumed it was from us bending over the crib to lift Jake out and scratching it. Little did I know that beaver-boy has been standing up in the crib and gnawing on it like an animal! Now I know why they sell crib rail teething guards at Babies R Us! I think I’ll save $25 and just smear Horseradish on it!:)

DAY 252: Clap Your Hands Everybody!!!

We’re Lamda Lamda Lamda, and….

Today was a tremendous day for writing in the baby book! (Yes, with all the documenting we do on this kid, there’s also a baby book:) First, Jake pulled himself up to the standing position in his crib! Then, after we made his big, stuffed toy horsey give him a few pecks on the cheek, I said “give your horsey a smooch, Jake!” He leaned in and smooched the horsey right on the nose! (Funny, it didn’t work on his Mom or I:) And lastly, he learned how to clap his hands as we sang Lamar’s rap from Revenge of the Nerds. He grinned every time I said “Omega Muuuu’s!” It’s so much fun watching this kid evolve!

DAY 251: THANK YOU MOMMIES EVERYWHERE!!!

I’ve said this before, but… THANK YOU to all the Mommies out there! Guys CAN NOT deny that taking care of a child is a full time job!

Single Moms, Moms with multiple kids, working Moms…heck, even single DADS, you ROCK!!!

Without my wife, Jake would probably be eating french fries, watching Snakes On A Plane right now while I typed this! The house would be a wreck, the flowers would be withering, and raccoons would be living in the laundry room!

If you think I’m grateful, it’s because I AM!!!
