It's weird - When Mary's pushing Rosalie at the store or at Church, she rarely gets a "congratulations." But when I have Rosalie, people seemingly fall over themselves to say it to me.

Maybe it's because she's back to her pre-pregnancy weight? No one thinks she's the mommy?

So it goes without saying that it doesn't seem right that I was just named one of Champaign-Urbana's Dads To Know. It's just because I'm a celebrity. We know Mary does all the work :)

A Busy Month (in photos)

Update: changed the photos to a slideshow. Click any photo to open the album. This has been a very busy month in terms of visitors. It's been great to see so many family and friends. Rosalie is now 7 weeks old! This is the last week before Mary returns to work (part-time) so we're going to try and spend as much of it together as a family. Mary might be a little cranky when she returns to work; we've given up fried foods for lent :)

Click on any pic in the slideshow to open the photo album (and to save it for yourself).

Our Projects

We've been busy in the house -
1) We have a 6 week old baby (maybe you've heard about her)
2) Mary's been working hard on the IL Marathon - She even made an appearance on TV! Watch it.
3) I've been re-designing the Boy Scout website -

My sister Kathy & Andrew, and their girls Daphne and Briget visited this weekend. Pics to come. The girls loved Rosalie; they held her and did a lot of petting her. We ended up at the play area at the mall; a small playground for little kids - I don't know why 9 year olds were playing there, or why it has a doctor theme. It was our first occasion to bust out the stroller to push Rosalie around (and introduce her to thousands of germs). I can see bringing Rosalie back to the mall when she's older to play - I wonder if there are other indoor playgrounds in CU?
