Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Lilypie Second Birthday tickers

Monday, August 16, 2010


It's been a while since I've posted anything, so I figured it was time I chimed in. As I'm sure many of you have seen, we are having a little boy in December, and I am really excited. I of course would have had no problems being in a house full of beautiful women (I've never been the kind of guy that needs sports, action movies and other macho things to get by). But it is great thinking about having a little guy around the house. I'll be able to play Lego's with him (my guilty pleasure when it comes to "kids" toys), play video games with him, play catch, and one day far down the road, share a good beer and a cigar with him. Now, admittedly, I can do all of these things with Cate too (the first three, I have already done with Cate), but it does put a different spin on things with a little Brennan. Especially since I get to model for him how to treat women, how to be respectful, and hopefully lead him to be a great man of God.

This brings us into a new dynamic in our family life. I know that all of you with more than one kid out there are probably thinking to yourselves, get ready for your world to be rocked. And I know, it is going to be a wild ride, but I am definitely excited. Having Cate was even a bit of a game-changer, but it's been a great 2 and 1/2 years and I'm pumped for what lies ahead. And it makes our BBC (our minivan or the "Big Blue Compromise" as Mel likes to call it) that much nicer.

Here's a parting shot of some time with Cate. It has been fun to see her character develop and already see some musical talent emerge from her tiny voice, and little fingers. Who knows what instruments, shows or recitals lay ahead. Till Next Time...
