Not too much going on lately. We went to another hockey game and Rachel got both flu vaccines today.

Logan's First Hockey Game

Logan's first hockey game was the Phoenix Coyotes home opener for the 2009-2010 season. The Yotes lost a tough one and I think he could tell how frustrated I was because he spent the rest of the night kicking up a storm inside his Ma. I think I felt one but he stopped once I kept my hand on her stomach.

Little Kicks

Rachel has hit the range where she should start feeling kicks. I heard from some people that at first it just feels like gas until the quads get built up some more and little Logan can really throw a roundhouse into the wall. She might have felt one last night and I need to know if it was just one or 3 at a time. I'll be really excited if he is born with retractable bone claws.

The registering process was fun for a bit and then I got sick of it right around the time I realized it was like clothes shopping. I did sneak over to the Toys 'R Us section and managed to scan a Darth Vader Lego TIE Fighter into the registry but she found it later and deleted it. What newborn kid can live without that!?!?

That whole thing made me realize that he's probably not going to like the same things that I do at first. I remember the first time my dad showed me Monty Python and the Holy Grail or Cheech and Chong movies. I thought they were pretty dumb but later realized that they were classics. Logan will probably be like that with Star Wars.

I was telling Rachel that it will be really fun once he starts going to school and we can put a desk in his room and maybe a computer that he can use (locked down of course). I even mentioned that maybe he would learn to program and she flips out about how she isn't accepting any more nerds who sit on the computer all day into the household. If I can't live vicariously through him, why are we having kids at all?

I'm also finding myself out in the garage more often as I get older. It won't be long before I start changing our oil in the cars in order to save $10. If you talk to my dad he will tell you how this is a complete 180 from what I've always said growing up.

We have made it...

To the halfway point! Today officially marks week 20, which means we are half way through, only 20 more weeks until we meet Logan! Yesterday Andy and I went to babies r us to register for our showers. It was a bit overwhelming. It's amazing to see how many different types of bottles there are, pacifiers, bottle warmers, and so on, and so on. I think we both felt a little helpless. I already had the big items picked out, which were the stroller/car seat combo, pack and play, high chair, etc. They're all from the same Graco line, so it was easy to match them and I made sure to do my research on whether they were actually worth the money. I think Andy was happy that we didn't have to sit there and ponder over all of the large items. Once we finished up, I came home and of course added more items, took off the ones that I changed my mind about. So, that's out of the way. Next item up, pick a crib and buy it. I want to paint before the crib comes, that will be happening next week during fall break. I'm very excited to get this nursery started!
