Equal Time for Curious George

Next month is a big one for us, as I have mentioned, but there are some other, less life-altering, stuff I'm also excited about. Of course my Steelers in the Super Bowl (playing our old home team no less) is a big one. I'm also very excited about the new Curious George movie that is coming out.
There is a link in the above title that will take you to the a video for the theme song of the new film. The song is by Jack Johnson, who is about the coolest musician out there. When you click and the page opens you may have to click the link for "Upside Down", then sit patiently through about 30 seconds of commercials before the video starts.

Commencing Countdown, Engines On

We are officially in the final month of Atticusville, population:1. Sometime in the next 30 days we will be joined by a stranger. Normally, we don't take kindly to strangers in these here parts, but since we have more diapers and baby formula than we could ever possibly use on our own, we are willing to make an exception and welcome the newcomer. I hope the kid likes formula.

The Sit-n-Stand Earns Atticus Approval

Things are starting to come together for the new arrival. My parents were kind enough to purchase this new stroller for us. Atticus felt that it needed a test drive, and it passed with flying colors.

Of course the contents will shift when in actual use. Atticus will be able to stand on the platform or sit on the seat in the back while the baby kicks Little Bear out of the front seat. It's a pretty cool stroller for anyone with a toddler and an infant. Or a toddler and a Little Bear.

Corner Changes Imminent

In roughly a month or so Atticus will be a big brother. He seems fairly prepared for the responsibility. He knows that a baby will be here, but I'm not sure he realizes it is the same baby that he kisses goodnight each night in his mommy's belly.

He understands that he will have to teach the baby about marshmallows and Disneyland, how to count to 6 and where the best rocks are in the yard. I don't think, however, that he understands that the new baby will be here, always. He isn't aware that it will be loud and stinky and all of the things he has outgrown and no longer remembers. He doesn't realize that every toy will be community property and that every moment of alone time will be compromised. Things that used to be his exclusively, like laps and hugs, will soon require his patience and understanding.

I only hope he understands that he isn't losing love here, he is gaining it.

Disney's New Year's Bash

We had a great time at Disneyland over New Year's. For a complete recap go to the Honea Express, I'm too lazy to type it again. Also, for pics of this trip and other recent visits use the link to the right.
