So we haven’t posted in a LONG time… and it has come to our attention that not EVERYONE is on “THE FACEBOOK,” and that the friends and family who are not into the social networking still may want some updates of our goings on and updates of the growing boy. SO we are once again vowing to be better bloggers… we promise…. really… we mean it this time.
So since we last blogged… Alistair has been growing like a weed. He is a full-fledged TODDLER!!! And man is it taking some getting used to. Everyday is filled with joy, wonderment, exhaustion and frustration for ALL THREE OF US. Every time Alistair says a new word or phrase, or learns something new it is amazing… unless of course it is a new temper tantrum technique. This week’s new language developments are, “Awesome,” “frog,” “apple” and “Bye Daddy.” He is particularly proud about the “bye daddy” accomplishment and says it to Michael even if he is just going into the kitchen, or just stepping away 3 feet from him. It is pretty cute. Today we dyed Easter eggs and had an indoor hunt and looked for Alistair’s Easter basket, there may be a video of all that posted soon.
Most of our time is spent with Alistair, but when we are not hanging out with him, we are working out (Michael finally joined the gym with me and now he is my work out buddy), I have lost 28 lbs and he has lost 7 or 8. Before you think I am defying the laws of men and women and actually losing more than him you should know that I started trying about 5 months ago and he just started a couple weeks ago, I am sure he will quickly surpass me. I am still very into my hobbies of knitting and genealogy. I am nearly finished with an Easter Vest for Alistair (pictures to come) and have also finally finished my first sock, something I have wanted to do for a long time. now I just need to make the other one, so i have a pair.
Michael is still an avid golfer. He had the opportunity to golf in Hawaii on our vacation and was thrilled to make this season’s first birdie shot while in Hawaii.
That is all that is new with us. I’m posting some pictures here to catch you up to the last several months.
Jessica complained endless about the last blog. So here is a new blog. Don’t worry, I’m sure she’ll update it as soon as she can. Here’s a picture of a very long line….
I always thought my wife was a little bit crazy, however, it seems an alternate personality has appeared and is sending us takedown requests!
[there was an image here showing a person named Jessica Fraser asking Jessica to stop using her name...]
The internet is a small place, it’s like you can find yourself all over the place…
If you take a glance over to the right side, you'll notice there's a category "Shared Calendars" with a link to an Event Calendar. Click it. It'll make you happy. If that's to far away, just follow the yellow brick <a href="http://www.fraserama.com/calendars/fraserama-cal.html" title="Event Calendar">road</a>.<br />
Keep an eye on it. We'll be updating it with events that we are interested in or planning on attending. If you have a Google account, you can even subscribe to it.
As you can see, it’s a work in progress still. Jessica was wanting a little place of our own. After a friendly suggestion for a DNS of “fraserama” by Laura we decided to run with it.
Hopefully I’ll be able to convince Jessica to post some news if she’s not too busy learning Spanish.
I’m looking forward to moving down to Indianapolis on Friday. It’ll be nice to finally live with my wife!
