Sleeping Patterns

So, little Drew likes to sleep with his arm up by his face. See the picture below. (The bandaids are from him having to give a little blood at the doctor's office to test his jaundice.)

This is the best one. He's topless again to get some indirect sun on him for his jaundice. But what's important is his arm placement.

Finally here is his 3D ultrasound picture we got at 20 weeks. (He was born in his 40th week.) Notice the arm placement. Seems he is sleeping now as he did in the womb. I think this is incredibly interesting.

My boss is an A-hole

I emailed saying I really wanted to take the next week off, which he asked if I was going to take 2 weeks before Drew came, so I thought taking 2 weeks wouldn't be bad. His response: I need to know where this is, where this is, can you do this at home next week, and where is this. Also thrown in this was "we're real busy with this," so I'd feel guilty about staying home. Nice! No, how are things going, congrats again, nothing. This will be fresh in mind when resignation comes.

I email back saying where things are, but not addressing item 3, can I do this at home. So the response, what about item 3. So, I'm coming in one day next week to take care of that and get them off my back. Let alone this is vacation that I'VE EARNED LAST YEAR and carryed over to this year for this particular purpose.

Note to employers: If you treat your employees good, they will want to stay and work for you. If you try to squeeze every little ounce of work out of them and show no interest in anything they are doing outside of work, like celebrating the birth of their first child, they will not want to work for you and will leave.

Day 2 at Home

Today we took a bath, ate some (Mommy's milk is here!) and took a nap.

Aggies Upset KU

If you haven't read in the papers yet, A&M beat Kansas last night in men's basketball in Lawerence, Kansas. This is the first win over KU ever for the Aggies, the first win for a Big 12 South opponent in Kansas. The Aggies overcame a 11 point 2nd half deficit and finished on a 17-4 run, highlighted by Acie Law IV's 3 pointer from the corner to give the Aggies a 1 point lead with 20 seconds left.

Why this win is sweet for Bubba. I was an Aggie basketball fan back before we were good. In my 6 years at A&M I never saw them beat our rival texas. When the Big 12 was formed, Kansas and Missouri complained that the Texas schools were going to drag the conference down. Well, now you're looking up to us.

It was one of the top sporting event watching moments for me. So much so, I'm watching again on ESPN Classic this morning!

Little guy

So, on Saturday night the Aggies travel to Kansas to take on KU in basketball. Then Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. Monday night the Aggies host the evil orange toads from Austin. So, the Superbowl, and two of the biggest basketball games in A&M history. Surely the little guy will want to watch some of this, wouldn't you think? With his Daddy? Rooting for the Ags!
