Ready For Football Season...Almost

All that's left to do is birth little Chloë, put her in a matching Alexander #37 Seahawks Home Jersey, and cheer!

It seems like everyone we know is having a baby soon! Case in point: We're playing in a fanstasy football league with some friends...4 couples, 4 pregnant wives! So we are the PFL - "Pregnant Football League".

So, while we wait to welcome little Chloë into our lives...Aiden is growing up so big (for proof, see the below photo taken at Jamison Square Park in July 2007 - does that look like a 5 year-old to you?)! He starts kindergarten at Kingsway Christian School on September 5th, 2007 - he's pretty excited.

"I am sick and tired of waiting for Chloë to get here!" - Aiden (to Sarah at the breakfast table)

You Mean We Should Speak Intelligently To Our Babies?

The University of Washington issued a press release about some research they are doing and the Time/CNN/MSNBC/Gannett/Corporate Media "pack" picked up on it.

Well, Disney did not like it much.

Hmmm...being intentional about little decisions with children and weighing the potential benefits and costs therein seems like a good idea to me. Ok, I'm off my soapbox.

Stay tuned for more pics soon. Sarah is doing real well and the appointment with her Midwife went very well this morning. We could see a baby anytime! One brisk walk around the grocery store with a half-full cart might be all it takes! All hands on deck!

Do You Have Accent?

This has nothing to do with babies, but a fun distraction nonetheless.
Here's my results:

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The West

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.
