A couple of weeks ago we traded in the XBox and the PSP and managed to get our hands on the Wii. For those of you that ever actually turned the controller on old school Nintendo when you were driving or tried to make Mario jump by jumping with the controller, you can now play like this. In fact, you use your arm movement so much to control what's going on, that we are convinced you can develop "Wii Arm" or "Wii Elbow." Don't worry, Melody's sister will be able to treat it when she becomes a physical therapist. And since Wii's are in short supply right now, it's not exactly a common ailment.
So whenever your around come on over and play Wii with us. We're close to "pro" status on bowling (too bad we can barely break 100 at the real bowling alley-- the weight of the ball isn't in the control, only the motion, maybe that has something to do with it). We've got Wii Sports, Wii Play and SSX Blur. We rented Cars over the weekend, but we're holding out for Melody's favorite...Mario Kart.
Don't forget, on Wednesday, 9/5, we should find out the gender of our other "wee" one. We'll try to let you all know as soon as we can. :-)
