Well, Ethan is still grumpy today. Lingering ear infection? Stomach still upset (don't think so)? Or, is he just ready to assert himself?

As the pictures before church this morning show, Ethan remains active whenever he is awake. I'm updating the website from the rocking chair in his room. He is sleeping.

Somehow, he is stirring very little. A suprise, since Lynn is in the process of cleaning-out closets and moving her spring/summer wardrobe into rotation.

Ethan did get to see a bit of excitement last night when Alabama beat Stanford to move into the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1991.

He didn't watch the tape of the spring football game in Tuscaloosa. As everyone should know, both QBs are comming off of surgery. The 3rd string guy looked pretty awful. Plus the Receivers looked bad. Can we run on every down?

I wouldn't feel so bad about football if I didn't see most of Auburn's spring game. It is fair to say that Auburn has twice the talent of UA. Very depressing.

Even the "washout" QB from Hewitt-Trussville, Cox, looked incredible alternating between 1st and 2nd team. Something like 13 of 14 passing (dink routes, but still... WOW). Looks like the timing of Campbell's graduation will be perfect. Depressing. I hate Probation, Phil Fullmer, and the NCAA. Well, once Ethan wakes, it may be time for fun in the sun before it gets cold again.

Ethan was quite sick for a few days. Even after shots on THURSDAY, Friday, and Saturday, life was not good. However, he still remains a little fussy today. Well, a lot fussy.

Ethan is really sick. Here's a shot of my leg after one vomit session. Still happy, however. We goto the doctor later today.

OK, so if anyone is wondering, my Treo looks like this...

I generally use this to take quick photos and post pictures. I love it. Anyway, today I updated the links on the side of the page (as I alluded to in another post).

Been quite busy at work, but this morning I actually spent some time at the PC. I need to update my web links b/c I just found a couple of really need weblogs (boing boing, being one) that are sure to entertain. For those with smartphone access (my Treo rules!), you've got to check-out the following site:


Very nice aggregator of mobile-oriented sites and publisher of stripped-down rss feeds of sites. I love the new service.

Ethan is starting to stack his big blocks (Legos for babies), not just eat them.

Ethan answers a call while on the run. Literally.

Ethan likes his phone. Here he is dialing a number.

Ethan has ripped through several of the safety latches in the kitchen that keep cabinets shut. Here is an example showing that "no drawer is safe" in this house.

Ethan is ready to get down and walk. No time to pose with Grandad.
posted by Chris, 12:28 PM | link


Well, Grandad Compton stopped to see us yesterday. He left for KY this morning. Ethan was not in a good mood for pictures.

It is hard to walk when the cap falls over your eyes!

It is Sunday. Ethan is full of new adventures. Yesterday, a friend of mine helped construct shelves in the shed. It is yard work season yet again. Before I started, Ethan took my hat.

Ethan attacks a Saturday morning with his new trin. He loves to pull the cars apart and roll the engine around to hear all of the noises. In fact, he may really like gadgets (maybe like his Dad, eh) because he slept with his toy cell phone last night.

Well, Ethan is now on antibiotics for his ears. All is better now. He's having fun at dinner tonight.
posted by Chris, 6:21 PM | link


Well, Ethan got violent with his food the other day. You could tell that another ear infection was setting in.
