Fun, fun... look who's one!

Claire is one year old today! And, to celebrate, she took a header into a safety gate in the living room. She was "running" across the room with a throw pillow. After tripping over the pillow, she fell into the gate... leaving a nice, red rug-burn-looking mark (which I believe is commonly referred to as a "raspberry"... or some other small fruit). Just in time for her one year photos, no less (including an upcoming session with a professional photographer... who is NOT Stew). Claire is healing by teaching Grandma Helen the fine art of napping. It's only 9:15AM, but it's been a long day already!

Luckily, I was able to use the timer on Stew's digital camera to shoot some birthday photos with Claire, which I'll post at the bottom of this entry. In the meantime, I want to thank everyone who voted for Claire in the Baby, You're a Star photo contest sponsored by Evenflo (a baby gear manufacturer). We don't yet know if Claire won. According to the contest website, "...finalists will be notified by phone, mail, email, smoke signals or Pony Express. The winner will be selected based upon online votes, and subject to approval by Evenflo." I think the last line means Evenflo will send someone to Minneapolis to confirm Claire is, in fact, a baby... and not a professional little person model.

About This Blog

Commentary from a stay-at-home dad on daily happenings and misadventures while helping raise a wonderful little girl. The goal is to employ wit, sarcasm and/or humor to make the blog pseudo-entertaining. Then again, setting goals never really worked for me, but maybe you'll chuckle anyway.

OUR FAMILY - Provides a brief bio on each family member.

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.

THE DOG DISH - Here you'll find the occasional rant or story written from a dog's point of view.

COMEDY - Here you'll find stuff I think is funny, typically video clips, cartoons or jokes.

LINKS - Just what the name implies.

PAW-LITICS - More rants, typically directed at despicable politicians with whom I disagree.

VIDEO VAULT - Home videos of Claire set to some of our favorite songs.

BUY STUFF - My online store (that is if I ever actually create one).
