Can you handle the cute?

I'm sure Centerpoint Energy loves this thought.

So Ike is just starting to hit Houston proper and there are already
725,000 homes without power. On top of that the news guy just
suggested that folks that still have power to turn down their AC so
that the house will be comfortable longer once you do lose power. I
wonder what centerpoint would do everyone started running their air
full blast. All that said... I just turned down our AC 10 degrees.

Starting him early...

Sorry it's blurry... he's actually in his swing and I tried to snap at right at the apex so it would be as stable as possible.

Been busy...

So my second to last post I talked about some other topics I needed to post on... as the very next post indicates... I've been a little preoccupied. :)

My son, Becket Michael Wild, was born six weeks premature. His official measurements were 3 pounds 7 ounces and 17.5 inches. That small and that premature meant that he had to spend some time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit... but he did really well and was able to go home after just three weeks.

So he's been home now for two weeks and we're still getting the hang of this whole parent thing. :) I'm amazed at how busy I am... because he needs constant nearly constant feeding, changing, rocking, etc... that means one of us is always taking care of him and that leaves half the number of people for all the other typical house chores (cleaning, cutting the grass, balancing the check book, etc.) Even some side projects I've tried to start are languishing. One of them is to get a lot of our video online... I have actually gotten it uploaded, but we aren't prepared to share everything with the world... so I have to figure out how to set permissions and send out invites... blah, blah, blah. There's only so many hours in the evenings.

Anyway... I thought I would share one video (that I don't mind sharing with the world):

The video was taken in the hospital on the day he came home. This was pretty early in the morning... you can tell I was tired there at the end.

Oh yeah... I know he's cute. He's growing too.

I recognize the outfit he's wearing in the picture... and it doesn't really fit him all that well now. Here's a photo from yesterday.

On a non-Becket related note... I've started playing with Twitter. For the uninformed, Twitter is a "micro-blogging" tool. So it's a blog like this but the updates are always short form (no more than a couple of sentences) and since they are easy to write... the idea is maybe you'll update them more. In my case I can easily post a twitter update from my cell phone as long as I have a cell signal from anywhere. Feel free to visit my twitter page directly, or you can see my updates on the sidebar on the right under "Twitter Updates". The five most recent
tweets (yes they call Twitter updates Tweets.. I don't like it either) will always be there.
