3 Months Today


River is 3 months today. He's now paying attention to his hands and grabbing at things. He's beginning to giggle. His neck and arms are getting stronger and he's almost rolling over. Not to mention he's growing like a weed.

Entourage - the best series on T.V. outside of LOST


Entourage has to be one of the best shows going on T.V. and I encourage everyone to start watching (unless curse words put you off....note, these guys can;t go 5 seconds without dropping an F Bomb...and Jeremy Piven is a Shakespearean god with curse phrases). This show is so good, Piven keeps winning Emmy's (see http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/TV/09/21/emmy.awards/index.html)
It's so good, I've bought all 4 seasons and have already converted my wife to a fan...
Long Live VIKING QUEST !

Big Boys 12 week check up



River had his 12 week check up today and he's as fit as a fiddle. Coming in at roughly 15.7 lbs and over 25" ( his knees were bent and the girl who measured him wasn't being very accurate...mind you, I think River was flirting with her so she was a little distracted ). According to the Doc that puts him in the 95th percentile ( she said he had "good tone" ). Next...shots on Friday...I don't think he'll be too impressed with that.

11 weeks - Future Heart Breaker - End of Summer

Big boy finished off the summer at the lake over the Sept long weekend and is still growing like a weed (he's almost into size 3 diapers ). Over the last weekend River hosted mommy's side of the family for a BBQ and of course, was the center of attention. It's funny to me how people react to babies...from the waitress at the sushi bar, to the ladies in the Kalispell K-Mart to the grizzled old truck driver at the Claresholm 7-11 (center of the Universe). They all seem to change instantly, smile and "goo goo gaa gaa" and ask how old...I figure, if you can look at a baby and not get a big smile and let your daily cares drift away and marvel at the new life...then in the words of Darren Gangur " YOU'RE AN A**HOLE !"
