Carnivores FTW!

In case you can't read it, the sign on the right says:

Carnivores don't need some wimpy support group. Keep being AWESOME!

Two weeks. Honestly?

Yeah, it's been a while. Whatever. I've been busy. What have I been busy with? Poop. That's what.

I forgot how much newborns poop. Want to venture a guess as to how often they poop?

Six times an hour. That's how often.

Want to venture a guess as to when they poop?

Usually around 3 am.*

Want to know when they fall asleep?

About 1 am.

Yeah. Anyhoo. Aside from being sleepy and all that I've been checking out the following cool things which I would highly recommend taking a look at:
  • Google Wave - This could be a game-changer. This is the full demo. Watch the first 15 minutes then, if you want, jump here for the highlights.
  • The new iPhone 3.0 software (unlocked and lovin' every minute of it!)
  • Fake Steve Jobs is back with his iLiver 2.0. Brilliant.
  • TweetDeck now (supposedly) syncs your followers and groups across multiple computers. Nice, but I still wish it was web-based.
  • An awesome article in Wired about what the Big Three automakers need to do to survive (hint: On the Road to Recovery, Let the Little Guys Drive). A must-read.
So yeah. Check that stuff out and let me know what you think and I'll see if I can be a bit better about posting.

*My wife just pointed out that it's been a while since I was up at 3 am changing diapers. True. But I did do it, even if it was a while ago. The fact that I'm still exhausted by that singular event means you should feel sorry for me all the more.

To what, exactly, are you referring?

The Ultimate Father's Day gift is a chick in a sports bra? A tattoo? Or a canteen you carry around in a man-purse? I'm confused.

Our girl arrived

Hey world. I'm here. It's been a week now since our little girl was born (everyone is healthy an well - things went about as smoothly as one could hope).

Needless to say (although I'll say it anyway), life has been turned upside down as we try and figure out sleeping schedules, keep a two year-old happy and wonder if it's normal for a newborn to go through six diapers an hour.

Then there's the projectile poop.

Thank heavens for supportive friends and family.

It's still a bit weird to hear myself say, "The kids" when for the last couple of years it's been, "The kid." Our little girl has some very similar features to our little boy, but she's definitely going to have her own look to her which we're excited about. She has very long, beautiful fingers.

Is this rambling? Incoherent? I'm running on very little sleep here (see third paragraph).

We are doing well. We're keeping a low-profile as we get adjusted to our new family member. But life is good. I'm blessed with a happy, healthy family, a job that provides for us (which I enjoy), the gospel and a beautiful wife of whom I am completely unworthy.

Time to wake the two year-old.

 Let the fun begin.

P.S. We went with Sara.
