Here we are at the end of Week 1 of Paternity Leave. Baby T is doing very well, having already gained a pound and a half. The doctor was shocked, but this boy can eat. He's also very expressive. Z is enjoying his baby brother very much and hasn't shown any jealousy. Yet.



Z is also enjoying living in a cul de sac so he can ride his tricycle.


You know you're a huge nerd when you look around your garage for an half-hour for some rope to pull your son around on his bike and eventually give up and just use a Cat5 patch cable. Got plenty of those. Fortunately Z doesn't realize this is a problem yet for our father-son relationship, but he will, somewhere around the time when he learns what "throwing like a girl" means.

Picture of T smiling = Truly Priceless.

You have a beautiful family. Thanks for the pictures.

In an ironic twist, Z will probably *not* throw like a girl because he has Mo's genes, too. On the other hand, he just may be so cool that you end up giving him your lunch money, Scott.

Haha, reminds me of the time that I chopped the ends off of a 20ft cat5 cable so I could use it as speaker wire.

Just beautiful pictures Scott! Looking at them in my reader, I saw the first T pic, then when the second one comes up the transition is just priceless! Congrats and enjoy the time!

Yeah scott they're both amazing little ones. Congrats!

And think of it this way, at least you had something to pull him with, instead of simply pushing him and hoping for the best. Better hope he doesnt grow up to beat on you!
