Poor Sick Karren

For those of you who don't know yet, Karren has been pretty sick and feels like "a slug who ran into too much salt." (her words) You see, Karren seems to have hard pregnancies, and since she is 10 weeks along, her morning sickness is in full force. Luckily, she got some Zofran this time around and it is preventing her from throwing up too much. She tries really hard not to take it, if she can avoid it, but it really does help. Our child will be born around October 25th and no, we don't know the gender yet.

The Wylde Man Prophesy

This is a video I did right before Karren and I started dating. It comes from the creative genius of Elliott Bynum, AJ Juson, and Kevin Hammer. Enjoy!

A tiny, pointing hand in my face

I stayed up really late last night doing Karren's business finances and went to bed exhausted. So, when Sonya woke up at 4 AM wanting milk, all I could do was put some in a bottle, lay her next to me, and immediately fall back asleep. Five minutes later, SMACK, the bottle was placed into my face to indicate she was done with it. I put it on the night stand and went back to bed, Sonya laying next to me. Half an hour later, SMACK, a pointing finger with my little girl saying bababababa. I handed her the bottle, let her finish it, put it back on my night stand, and went back to bed. Half an hour later, once again, SMACK! Sonya's hand was in my face again pointing towards the bottle. It was empty, but I gave it to her anyway. Unfortunately, she didn't want an empty bottle, so I got out of bed to put more milk in it. She drank it, handed the bottle back to me, and we both went back to bed. Finally, around 7:30 AM, Sonya wanted to sleep perpendicular to me and basically kicked me out of bed. Lesson learned: Don't let Sonya sleep in our bed, regardless of my tiredness level. That is, until the next time I am too weak.
