This weekend, all of us got a chance to play some games. Micah and Malorie had their first play date, with their new friend Jacob Jennings. Jacob is the one week old of Rachel and my ex-roommates Justin and Jodi. Jacob was the perfect first friend for the twins, as he has won considerable battles just to be here too - born in an urgent C-section delivery with elevated heart rate to a cancer survivor mother. Anyway, as you can see in the picture, we got a chance to remember how small Micah and Malorie really are, as Jacob is already bigger than them both even though he is a full month younger. Oh well, if Jacob gets mean I'm sure the twins will just gang up on him.
As for the rest of us, I got to watch the Bears knock off the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers tonight. Malorie woke up just in time to watch Robbie Gould knock in the winning field goal, thereby witnessing her first ever Bears victory. Rachel got to take her first extended walk since the pregnancy, a thirty minute doozy around a few blocks with the kids, dog and mother-in-law in tow. Speaking of my mom, she got some fun time in this weekend too, spending a few hours shopping at a local strip mall.
Anyway, with all the lack of horseplay over the last month, the one thing that can still get us to waste time is our divided house. Therefore, I hereby terminate this blog post early to go watch my Cubs play against Rachel's playoff bound Cardinals. Let the games continue. Go Cubs.
