First Day in Pants!

Here's a picture of Jack on the first day he wore pants! Not exactly a momentous occasion but he does look damn cute so had to take a picture.

Craig's gone white-water rafting so me & mum are lounging around, eating ice cream and watching movies.

Cody likes to sniff and cover Jack in kisses as you can see.....

Football Game was Even

Well I think the 1-1 Everton- Columbus Crew was a good score. Everybody was happy in the end.
A couple of Engish fans were typically idiotic, like running on the pitch and fighting with Liverpool fans - how did that happen here in Columbus??? - but overall it was a good game & Jack slept through the whole thing.
Here's a picture of me & Gina after the game.

Met EFC Tonight!

Everton Football Club (my team) are in town to pay Columbus Crew tomorrow night. Craig took me & mum to the stadium where we met with our mate Matt (Head Groundsman). After the practice I got my pictures taken with the manager, David Moyes, goalie Tim Howard & forward James Beattie. How exciting!! One of the trainers gave Jack a scarf too. Added bonus - Brandy Chastain was there and talked with me about babies (she just gave birth 6 weeks ago) - she's far right in the Tim Howard picture. What a treat for me - I've been an Everton fan for years and never thought I'd get so close!

What a Fortnight!

Well, what a fortnight we've had..
We are still just trying to figure the little lad out and are basically making up parenthood as we go along. Too soon we spoke about how chilled out he was as we have found out he has a fair set of lungs on him!
Craig goes back to work tomorrow, which I am very sad about. We've had such a lovely time together since Jack was born. My mum's here to help out though so it's not too daunting.
Mum and Craig are currently out on a kebab hunt while I feed Jack.
Write more soon.

Heartbroken

Well, Craig, mum & me went to watch the England game and of course we are all heartbroken. And Brazil got beat, so looks ike it's a European final.
I have no idea who to cheer for now. Maybe Germany? I don't really care who wins now!

He's the Reason We Can't Have Nice Things

I say this line a lot to Craig - When the cats barf on the bed "We can never have nice things" When Ben poos on the basement car...
