Layout and News

I did another layout. It kind of speaks for itself.

This was the day of Elijah's dedication. He looked so handsome in his dress shirt and tie. He reminded me of a little man, so I decided to scrapbook about it.

Now the news... I wasn't posting about my life because, to me, nothing was going right and I was waiting for everything to blow over. I don't like to vent on here, so there was pretty much nothing to post about, except the new stuff Elijah was doing. So, without further ado - Joe got a job. It's permanate, it's full time, it pays well and has great benefits. He was told yesterday that he would find out in 2 weeks, but the guy met with the other guy and they decided to offer it to him today. Of course he accepted. :-) He starts March 9th. Yayness!!

On top of that, Spring is almost here and I'm really excited about that too. Hehe. But, for now, I'm out.

Alright, here it is. It's really short, but it was the best I could do without him dropping to the ground and crawling at warp speed towards the camera.

Movie Monday - Postponed

Ok, so Movie Monday is going to be postponed, until tomorrow, again this week because I forgot to download the videos onto my external hard drive AND I forgot to bring my camera with me to work today. Dance is tonight, so I'm not gonna have time to do it later... Life is busy.

This week you'll have a choice, it's either Elijah walking OR Elijah doing "clap clap clap your hands" with the computer game. Let me know. The winning video I will post this week. The runner up I will post next week.

I'm out.

A Belated Movie Monday

I was off for Presidents Day, so that meant spending all day with Elijah and Joe, so I really didn't have time to post a video. And things didn't turn out the way I had hoped this weekend. I ended up getting sick on Friday night and trying to get back to normal on Saturday, so here is another oldie:¤t=edited.flv

This was when he first started to talk when he was about 8 months old.

They amaze me sometimes. Other times... well, I'm not going to get into that.

I was out at lunch, today, with Dave and John from work, we were talking about random stuff then of course the subject turns to baseball since it is almost baseball season. I like baseball... I follow it to some degree... not as much as I used to, but I still like it and go to games, but what came out of their mouths was simply amazing, from a girls POV.

They were naming people I had never heard of and doing these like statistic things about "Well, if A-rod is in a slump" then this and "Mussina is doing this" then that. I was just in awe that they could talk like this. Joe does this same thing with football too. To another guy he'll be like, "So what you think about Brady's 97 yard throw?" in this game that has nothing to do with either team that they root for, yet the other guy was like, "I think it was interference and they should have" yada yada yada.

I just don't understand it. How does every guy have the same amount of random sports crap shoved in their heads to the point where they can have conversations that make absolutely no sense to women? The world will never know...

BTW, speaking of men, my little man has decided that walking is def better than crawling to the point where he will walk across the room, on command. I was trying to get a video of him walking across the room to post on here, but he is in love with my camera (actually he thinks it's his), so when I would get it out to record him he would drop to the floor and crawl as fast as he possibly could, to it. So if things go my way this weekend, I will have a video of him walking, on Monday.

Movie Monday

We went to the park yesterday, cause it was finally nice enough that Elijah could play on the playground equipment without freezing.

First he swang

Then he went on the playground equipment

And spun this thing around about 1000 times

However, he was not impressed with the slide

That evening Elijah decided to take about 10-12 steps into the middle of the room. He wasn't trying to get to anything, he just decided to take a little walk. The only thing I can think of is that he had so much fun and saw all the kids walking and running around that he thought he would practice, then maybe next time he could run and walk around too.

BTW, here is the movie of the week. It's Elijah swinging and having a grand ole time.

There is a clearer version on my facebook, this is the best I could get for now.

It speaks for itself...
