Time of the Season

There are not many things better than Sunday in the fall. Of course, a Sunday in the fall where the Bears win would be better, but this isn't 1985.

Jack had his second swimming lesson with Stacy on Saturday, but didn't quite make it through the whole thing. He had some tough times this weekend, and Stacy thinks it's because a tooth is coming. I think he was upset that OU didn't play, and that the Bears lost to the Vikings. I guess that, like in most things, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News

Jack went in for his regularly scheduled checkup on Wednesday, so I get to pass on an update to his vital statistics:

21 lbs, .5 ounces (90% percentile)
28 inches (90% percentile)

I told Stacy that he is such a big boy because I was so good about making her drink milk during her pregnancy. I'm sure the Dairy Council will soon be seeking me out for endorsements...unless they talk to Stacy first. She seems to think I may be taking credit where I haven't necessarily earned it.

Jack also continued his War on Disease (tm) with some immunizations. He's finally done with a couple of them, and we threw in a flu shot for good measure. Once that flu shot was administered, he got all George-Bush-squinty and said of the flu germs, "Bring 'em on." I'm not certain that the flu germs noticed, but it sure inspired the rest of us in the room.

I'm the Punky QB Known as McMahon

Hambone and Company are proud to introduce our new Fall collection. We think that bibs and diapers are going to be the hallmark of the well-dressed baby in the Fall season.

We had a deckwarming party this weekend, and the weather cooperated nicely. We had a great time, and were glad everyone could come, especially those that made the trek down from Appleton. I know Jack did his best to make everyone feel welcome.

Of course, we all know what made this weekend so special, though. The Bears finally put the beatdown on the Packers in Lambeau Field. Yeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaa!!!!

Turn, Turn, Turn

It was a beautiful weekend at the lake, and a fitting end to the summer. We got a later start because Stacy went to see the Sarah McLachlan concert on Friday night with some friends. Early Saturday morning (and I mean early), girl, dogs, baby and I piled into the car and headed north.

Unfortunately, things were not all beautiful and peaceful this weekend. The draft for the Lucerne fantasy football league was held, and you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Stacy and I did pretty well, although I think everyone was happy with their results. That can't last.

Jack had a great time this weekend, especially once we realized that part of his difficulty sleeping in the cabin was due to the thin mattress in the pack n' play. Once we added an afghan underneath for some padding, he slept much better. We took a short video of Stacy and Grandma laughing with him. It's largish, so it may take a while to download if you're on a dialup connection.

Speaking of videos, Stacy made a new photo album video. This one is quite big, and will take a while even on a cable modem.
