Book Report: The Boy Who Whouldn’t Share

January 29th, 2009 · 3 Comments · a day in the life, bridget, random

I picked up this book the other day for Bridget. I wasn’t familiar with the author, but the reviews I’d read intrigued me. After having read it, I have to say that I’m impressed. The text is pretty simple, it rhymes, and it gets the point across. Bridget loved it. We read it at least […]

Slurpee Run

January 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment · a day in the life, bridget, random, spencer

Its pretty rare to have a warm day in January around here… so when one came we decided to take the opportunity to go for a walk. One of Bridget’s favorite summer activities was to take a walk to the local 7-11 and get slurpees. So when I suggested a walk she immediately requested that […]

January 25th, 2009 · 7 Comments · bridget, random, spencer

A collection of conversations we’ve had with Bridget relating to Spencer. Warning: There is all manner of body part talk and bodily function talk here. Read at your own risk. You have a boob? B: Dad, Spencer is crying. D: He’s hungry. I’ll feed him. B: (eyes wide, and sincere as ever) Daddy, you have […]

Indiana Jones and the land of the 3-year old

January 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · bridget

We played with the little legos the other day. The ones we got with our Brickmaster subscription. Usually Bridget asks me to build things, or she just stacks all of the same sized bricks together. But this time she went wild. I was pretty impressed with what she came up with. And so was she. […]

Honeymoon Bliss

January 22nd, 2009 · 3 Comments · food

Fattening. And Fabulous. I don’t have a picture because I don’t think I could take one that would do this treat justice. Imagine a cookie-like layer on the bottom, and a sweet chewy topping filled with pecans and coconut. And sprinkled with powdered sugar. I don’t care if you don’t like coconut, or if you’re […]

My parents came up to visit a couple of weeks ago, on New Year’s day. While they were here Bridget and Grandma got in some serious bonding time. I think they both had a great time! Thanks Grandma! Bridget had a ball!

Ketchup

January 15th, 2009 · 2 Comments · a day in the life, bridget, dave, family, random, the hottest girls at USU, tina

With the craziness that is life I managed to neglect this blog a bit over the past several months… at least as compared to my once daily posting regime. As such, many events and life happenings manged to go undocumented. Rather than pretend that I could really catch up and write a post for each […]

I’ve got no strings to hold me down.

January 13th, 2009 · 6 Comments · bridget, family, spencer

Spencer is 1 month old today! Wow. Just over a week ago we took Spencer off the oxygen, spent a couple of days testing his saturation levels, and finally last week we returned the oxygen tank and the monitor to Intermountain Home Care. The day we took it off of him I just kept singing […]

Vomit

January 11th, 2009 · 6 Comments · a day in the life, bridget, family, random

Last night Bridget had an accident at a friends house. When we got home (around 8:30) I made her go straight to bed. Not 20 minutes later she was complaining that her tummy hurt. She asked me to rub Vicks on her tummy – she was convinced it would work. A few minutes later she […]
