Dunk this!

As I mentioned on Friday's show, there is a commercial airing right now that makes me cringe each time I see it. Maybe I'm getting too old. It's one of those commercials you either love, or hate.

Check it out for yourself.

Feel free to leave a comment.

Big sis is doing great

Our first daughter, Megan, had been asking and hoping for a brother or sister for quite awhile. My wife and I learned we were expecting last fall, and we told Megan about it Christmas Eve. Naturally, Megan was excited, and eagerly anticipated Sarah's arrival.

So far, Megan has been handling the adjustment extremely well. She understands Sarah's needs, and the time my wife and I have to give to Sarah. Fortunately, Megan has embraced the challenges rather than avoiding the situation. Megan has been more than willing to lend a hand.

That's one advantage of having two children with a six year age difference, the older child -- assuming they're willing -- can be a great help with the newborn.

Watching Megan interact with Sarah has been one of the treats of this whole experience.

And yes, she's been a great help.

Megan has a Barney guitar that plays music whenever you place your hand thru the circle in the base of the guitar.

One day while we were changing Sarah, she was crying, and the pacifier wasn't calming her down. Megan grabbed her guitar, starting playing some music, and Sarah stopped crying.

Just last night, same thing. Sarah was crying during a changing and Megan instantly went for the guitar and soon Sarah was quiet as can be soaking in the sounds of "B-I-N-G-O".

One of the little joys of parenthood.

And certainly music to mom and dad's ears as well.

Heeeeeeeeeeere's Sarah!

First of all, welcome to my blog. I wanted to create a place where I can post a picture now and then, a rant once in awhile, or a cool website I've found, etc. So I'll try to update this fairly regularly.

Secondly, as many of you know, there's a new addition to my family. Sarah Alicia Williams was born at 12:05 a.m. on Tuesday, July 18th. Strange coincidence...she was born on 7/18, and weighed 7 lbs., and was 18 inches long.

I want to personally thank my wife for having to push a few extra times so that we could achieve such numeric symmetry.

I'm guessing that a few of my listeners would want to see what Sarah looks like, so I'm including the picture above. More pics are to come. And yes, the date on our picture says the 17th. We owe that to a failure to advance our camera settings to daylight savings time.

I'd like to thank my wife for that one, too.

Thanks again for visiting. Feel free to leave a comment, and come back often.
