Just the 2...er...4 of us

Had a baby shower this past weekend at our place. Denise's best friend flew in from California to throw it. She did a fantastic job of coordinating things, especially considering she had her 2 young kids (adorable, I might add) in tow. Although it was a ladies only shower, I am told a good time was had by all. Pretty darn good samosas as well (yes, I scavenged after the festivities were over). It's pretty amazing how generous folks are. The bambinos have got themselves some pretty nice threads.

My folks flew in for the weekend festivities, and it was really good to see them. Mom even gave me a series of shower gifts, including an Oscar the grouch -- commemorating my youthful days when I'd open up trash cans in the neighborhood looking for the green guy. I'll need to remember to reinitiate that habit...I don't think the neighbors will mind.

Anyway, here's a picture of us shortly before the baby shower started. As Fernando would say "She look mahvelous."

I received a video from a friend of mine on the world's first "help desk". It does have a true ring to it on how it can be challenging to embrace change. I remember the first digital camera my dad got -- he was an early adopter. The device was rather big, clunky, required floppy disks, and had very modest resolution and shutter speed. I remember thinking to myself "this doesn't seem as efficient as my film camera".

I bet this guy goes back to the scroll after the helper leaves.

Help, I'm surrounded by rabbits.

We've made good progress on the nursery. Last night we put up the wallpaper border. Still some work to do, but I think we've gotten a substantial amount of the nursery stuff taken care of. Lots o' lambs, rabbits, and birds.

Meanwhile, Truman continues to be the trendsetter with his "black" fashion statement. Look at all the imitators...

Greetings from the sprawling metropolis o' Pearland

Hello there! I have decided to enter this century and create a blog. We have twins on the way (due in December) and figured this would be a good way to post pics, videos, etc. of the kiddos without overloading people's inboxes. Plus, this is a good way to get Truman exposure on the internet, get him discovered by a pet casting agent, and ultimately net us millions as the next cover dog on Milk Bone boxes. Just to be cautious, though, I'll keep the day job for now.

Anyway, here are a few pics of the bambinos. We haven't landed on names yet (although we have a list of candidates) and in the meantime we are calling our daughter Bambino A and our son Bambino B. For the casting agents, have also included a pic of Truman checking things out. He's going for the Johnny Cash look right now with the black bandana. I think it's just a phase. On our walk this morning he told me about how he shot a man in prison...
