I actually do have a lot of my mind, but this thing called "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and "Hunter: Wayward" and "Medal of Honor: Frontline", has taken possession of my brain and time, so I am unable to really put much to keyboard. But out of guilt and obligation to the future readers in the family, I will commit this bit of time to writing a little something, in hopes that it will snow like the Dickens and I won't have to go to work.

I was at work today and I was really missing Alex. I like the way he smiles at me and I like the way he looks at me. I really don't think there's anything greater than having the love of a baby, even though he probably doesn't even know that he loves me yet. Seems like something he can be overwhelming, but then there are times when I hold him and think, "I don't have to give him back to anyone - he's mine!" and in a strange, possessive way that some people react to the love of their lives, I am happy that he belongs to me.

So, on the topic of Number Two, people are slowly finding out about our second coming (no pun intended) and the reactions are actually kinda fun. Our moms react rather... motherly. Concerned and slightly chiding, like we should stop messing around and stop having more babies. The way I look at it, it's gonna be stressful for a bit, like Alex can be at first, but it has to work because it's gonna happen. Some people have been giving me advice, such as to treat them almost like twins. Give them separate identities, but give them the same stuff for birthdays and Christmas. Because comparisons will be made between the siblings about all the material things, attention, and love that they will be receiving. A lot of people have been hinting that he either have kids who are about a year apart, and they fight a lot. Or maybe they're closer than any other two people on earth. So, I'm trying to take this all in stride, take the best advice and store it in my brain, and throw out the other stuff.

Remind me to post some pictures tomorrow. I need to do that, especially when we're buried in snow for the past few days, and are about to be buried in about few feet tonight. As of now, it hasn't done anything yet, but who knows 8 hours from now if I'll be able to even spot my car... Well, hasta luego, folks.

In a lot of ways, I think having another one really perks up the blog. It's like a one-man play has become... an ensemble cast!
