We're watching the pilot episode of Drive today. I wanted to watch it because I adore Nathan Fillion. I'm digging it, but not sure if I can stand watching it. I think it's going to end up getting pretty terrible and that might really bother me. But, I'm hanging in there because it's pretty interesting.

The chick teamed up with Fillion needs to consider easing up on the collagen, though. My spoiler predicion about her is: She was the young girl whose parents died in the '80s race and she wants to win so she can get to the end and kill the people who organize the race. Notice that she doesn't have a phone so isn't really in the race.

Anyway, we'll see how the show and our time goes. With Heroes starting up again, and episodes of Lost and a few other things pending, we may not have the time for a new show unless it knocks our socks off. Oh, and PLEASE don't cancel Veronica Mars!!

Clark update

Clark's doing great recently, other than the over-dependency thing. :)

Sitting is no longer an issue. He sits all the time now and it's so nice to be able to just put him on the floor do do something. He can be a little lazy though and if he feels a pillow or person behind him, he'll slump against it.

He's moved on to the "big boy bath" now. He seems to love it, even has toys to play with in there, though his favorite is his hair brush, go figure.

He has changed his schedule. He doesn't go to bed before 8pm, but sleeps in until about 7am. The good thing is that we can have less hectic dinner and we can even go out as a family at a normal time. The bad thing is that it really cuts into my "evening me time" but it's still a good compromise.

Clark is also expanding his vocabulary. He's been saying "ba" for awhile now, but has now included "da" and lots of other consonant sounds. Dan's thrilled, of course...hopefully "ma" will be coming soon. :) Clark has also started making raspberries, which are pretty comical.

He continues to be an awesome baby who gets tons of compliments when we go out...I just adore him. :)

Whoops, it's been awhile

Things have been a little crazy with Clark this past month or so. He's going through a period of neediness. I pretty much have to be sitting next to him at all times or he gets upset. Showering during the week has become a chore. I started with trying to put him in his room with a bunch of toys while I showered, but he would be hysterical by the time I walked out of his room. Then I moved him into the bathroom, with the shower curtain pulled mostly open, and even then he cries. So, my best bet is to shower before he gets up. :)

Last night our local daycare raised a little money by offering to watch children from 6-9pm. We were able to drop Clark and Gunnar there and had a lovely dinner out with Jodi and Laurent at Catch 35.
