And some photos

In various photos here, we have Sam chilling in his swing, which he thoroughly enjoys. In another, we have our "nanny" watching over him. And lastly, we have a snapshot of him tuckering out while watching football.

Samuel James Hard

Samuel James Hard was born Friday, Jan 19, 2007 at 3:33pm, weighing in at 8# 3 oz. I know, I know, it took us a while to blog it, but we've been so excited (and busy) doing all this new stuff, that it took us a while. Here is a link to some pictures that the hosptal takes and put online. Honestly, the pictures that we've taken are much cuter and better, but I haven't had time to transfer them to the computer, etc yet. In the meantime, these will have to do. Notice in the first one that it appears he is throwing gang signs. Trust me, our pictures are much better and will be coming soon.

No News Yet

So far Heather has not delivered yet. The interminable wait continues. Car seat is in the car. Crib is decked out. Bassinet is decked out. Swing bouncer is sitting between the fireplace and TV. There's even been a comet for crying out loud. Nothing has convinced the baby to come on out.

Brian is Lazy

Very long time with no post. We are healthy and happy and awaiting Sam's arrival. He should be here in about six more weeks and we are finishing up the rest of the stuff that has to be done- car seat, crib mattress, washing his clothes- before he gets here.
As for pregnancy, I am doing well, I just have to choose between eating and breathing at times. He is now big enough that he could stay downstairs in the regular nursery if born today and not have to go into the NICU. He just would have to act like a big boy. He and the cat play daily rounds of patty-cake with each other, it would be more amusing if my belly wasn't in between them, but still cute.
Brian is busy at work. This week he is acting chief resident which means that he has minions and gets to make executive decisions until the real chiefs return.
Thanksgiving was. . . Strange. We went from not having anyone to having twelve people we barely know over for it. Long story, but a good time was had by all.
I found something called non-alcoholic wine. It is regular wine (in this case merlot) that has had the alcohol removed magically. It does not suck. I would still rather have real wine, but I think that the quality has something to do with the company that makes it rather than the grape. We will see if it is worthwhile enough to try again before I can have real wine.
Hope all is well with everybody else

A Few More Hours Bite the Dust

Unborn baby continues to kick Heather's innards. She mumbled something about "quit having soccer and football on the TV".

Youtube is absolutely the best thing ever. As my schedule got better, I've had more time to exploit it. Gotta love that toilet-flushing cat. Better however, is using it to research college football footage. Found one yesterday called "Brodie's greatest hits" in which Alabama's former quarterback is sacked 11 times set to AC/DC.

Reset Button

So I was reading in Wired that of the 12.7 million or so people registered on Blogger, roughly 10 million are either inactive or never got started. Well, I'm still here, just incredibly indifferent. Sploggers be gone.

Lexington has been in the news the last two days, what with the worst domestic airplane accident in years happening exactly 7 miles from our house. And, no, nobody that we know was anywhere near being on the plane, thankfully.

Heather is now past the halfway mark. The more that things like walking and bending over become difficult, the more I hear phrases like "You did this to me!"

And of course, no August entry would be complete without thinking ahead to next weekend and the real beginning of college football. The UK team irritated me last week when the whole team walked across the road during rush hour blocking traffic for 5 minutes. I mean, if they were good and people respected them, fine, just maybe, that might be fine. But these losers don't deserve a free pass to block traffic. I'm tempted to go watch Georgia beat them in person. But that might be too much, except our neighbors are rabid Georgia fans which would make it even more fun.

Year 3

Today is the first day of the third year of residency. Things will be somewhat different. I will be on call half as much. Half of my time will be on nice little electives learning the nuances of things like reading EEGs and doing EMGs. I now have more experience than half the people in the hospital (lots of scared-looking interns in the hallways today).

Oh, and that baby thing. The date has been refined to mid-January. We are now taking reasonable suggestions on names. Apparently I am not allowed to choose Lando, Han, Chewy, JaMarcus, Bullitt, Tiberius, Trajan, Octavian, Titus, MoonUnit, Imrickjamesbitch, or a couple of others that I have suggested. Heather seems to have infinite veto power. I'm not sure what other names are left. We do know another expectant couple, one half of which is seriously pushing for Hans for theirs.

And don't get me started on the World Cup. Who would have predicted that the only Portuguese-speaking team in the semis would not be Brazil? Among many other things.

Apparently I have to go now. Something about supper.
