Piano Recital

There is no new pregnancy news to report on, other than Kim is starting to feel little flutters of movement, so I thought I would have Owen show off his piano skills. As a father with a son, I have to say that he is talking in an unusually fake high voice. His voice goes up 3 octaves when he is being shy. Normally it is more manly.

Click and enjoy.

Owen's Heart, Mom's Move, and the Packard's House

I don't have the energy to be creative right now, so here is a simple report from our weekend:

Owen has had a slight heart murmur since birth. The doctor at his last appointment referred us to a specialist in Salt Lake to finally check it out. Everything is fine. He just has a flow murmur. The way his blood goes into his heart just makes a funny sound.

Since we were in northern Utah, we decided to drive the rest of the way up and visit mom. I guess she just couldn't handle the big city life of Brigham City, so she moved to Tremonton. Never heard of it? Not surprised.

Mom has lost 53 pounds. She gave a great talk in church. She made my favorite pork chops, rice, and gravy for dinner. She cleaned Dexter's poo off of her shoe and the carpet. It was good to see you again Mom. We love you.

We also visited with the Packards in Logan. This is the view from their back deck.

We celebrated Courtney's birthday 2 days early. Owen loves his Aunt Nee Nee.

All in all, it was a very short and relaxing weekend. I really enjoyed a break from work. The weather was 20 degrees cooler than St. George. Owen is healthy. Kim's belly is pooching out a little more from the new baby. I got to watch some football on Derrick's new HD TV, and I didn't have to fire anyone when I got back.

(The song I chose for this post is just a sample of the music that helped us pass the time during the road trip.)

I Don't Want to Jinx Myself

Here I go again being slothful in my blogging duties. Sorry it's been 12 days since the last update. Things have actually been going very well. I hired a new employee that actually knows what he is doing, and I interviewed someone else this morning that will probably work out as well. I hope I haven't jinxed myself by blogging about it. I really don't want to fire anyone else right now.

As for baby news, Kim had another appointment today. The doc found the heartbeat right away. We're past the 12 week mark, so Kim isn't feeling nearly as nauseous anymore. I can't say it enough. We are both still in shock about this whole thing. There is another couple in our ward that has been trying to have a baby for 4 years. I almost feel guilty being so happy about our pregnancy. I really hope they can have a child soon.

Owen was such a good boy at Kim's appointment this morning, she decided to buy him a new toy. (See picture below.) We are enrolling him in tumbling and karate classes this Fall. He is the sweetest boy I know, but he also has a very aggressive and somewhat violent side. Uncle Derrick doesn't come down to St. George enough to take Owen's abuse, so we'll have to pass that on to unsuspecting karate students.
