So I guess looking at the last date that I have posted its been awhile. Well a newborn tends to distract a little from your time for silly things like blogging and sleeping and things like that. Well as info Grayson is doing great he is roughly the size of a small pony and isn’t really slowing down in the growth department. He is a rad kid however still not huge fan of his daddy, but i am sure as he gets older he will come around. I will argue that I am at a distinct disadvantage with my wife because she has the boobs that feed him.

First off if you haven’t read the books or just watched the first season but never read the books…please do. It is fantastic and well worth the thousands of pages in the series. Even my ” I don’t really care for fantasy wife is hooked ” so it must be good
well right now on kid duty I have been watching lots of wow wow wubzy not sure if that counts
Game of Thrones – best show on tv right now
Firefly – I cant believe I missed out on this show ..my nerd self should be really disappointed
