7-8 Months (and a 2-3 Sentence Kick in the Pants)
WHAT: Kids, Personal   |   WHEN: December 18, 2011
Long time, no post.  Recurring theme around here.  I think about posting quite a bit actually, and I actually did  post frequently... a little over 8 months ago.  Since then I've been in love with this new hobby called fatherhood, and honestly the choice between doing a blog post or hangin' out with this adorable little girl is an easy one.  

On top of that I seem to be stuck in this internet no-man's land between Facebook, Twitter, the blog, and - for about 2 days - Google+.  Sometimes I just post on Facebook, sometimes on Twitter, occasionally on the blog, and once in a fort night on all 3.  I feel technologically discombobulated. (for the record, that may be the first time I've ever used that word in the written form.)  Occasionally I hate technology because as much as it benefits us in so many ways, it also has a way of enslaving us to it to where we feel like we're gonna be left behind if we're not constantly paying attention to it.  You suck, technology... but I love you.

The message at church this past Sunday was about creating more margin in our lives. Making time to focus on the things that really matter, and discarding the things that don't.  Very timely and very personal to me as I spend an insane amount of time worrying about, working on, or playing around with things that are relatively unimportant and won't matter tomorrow, next week, next year, or on my deathbed.  

One of the quotes from the message at church on Sunday was, "What would you do today if you knew you couldn't possibly fail? Now go do it."  Those are inspiring and at the same time intimidating words.  Exciting to hear, hard to do. Think about it, though.  What would YOU do?

And while you're thinking about it, I'm off to do something easy for now that I know I can't fail at... I'm off to have fun playing with Saige.  In the meantime, here's a few images from her 7th and 8th months. 



Saige's face says it all... it was a rough hair day for daddy.



Kylie's parents came in town for Saige's Baby dedication at church back in November.  Here's Saige hangin' out with Grandfather Garry.  



And here's Saige and Kylie's brother, Uncle Bryce.  




Love how contemplative and inquisitive Saige is now.




Gettin' some grub from Grammy (Kylie's mom).




Belly's full. Nap initiated.



Sweet.



Sweet part 2.





I posted this image on Facebook a while back. Poor Mia.  Saige tugs on her fur, ears, and Mia just whimpers and takes it without ever snapping at her.  




Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?  Slap that baby (the camera, not the baby) into "P" mode, and I've got myself a budding assistant/2nd shooter!





Saige at the park with "Nonni" (my mom) at the park.  BTW, Nonni means grandmother in Italian.  Record that in your head for a future Trivial Pursuit game.









Headin' for the tree in a Christmas outfit from my step-mom, Kay.



Her big eyes kill me. I'm toast when she gets older.  



Hangin' in her high chair.





Not every minute's a rosy one around the Nicolosi household.  Unfortunately, faces like this one seem to be more frequent these days.





Poor Mia... just waitin' for some scraps to fall her way.
