Major Events

When I was pregnant with Aaron I kept a record of World Events that occurred. There were some biggies (an African American was elected President of the United States, for instance), but we may have topped all of them during my pregnancy with Abby. This weekend the Texas Rangers advanced to the World Series! If you don't live here, you may not understand. The Rangers came to our town the year Jory was born. In that time, they have not so much as won a Post Season Home Game, needless to say a Post Season Series. Any time the Rangers have been mentioned in the same sentence with World Series it has been as part of a really bad joke. The town is in Pandemonium. It is a site to behold. We went to the zoo Sunday (the Big Win was Friday night) and Jory said he saw more people wearing Rangers T-Shirts that day than he has in his entire life combined. That's pretty sad considering we been to a few actual Rangers Games. Papa John went out Saturday morning and bought all the boys Rangers shirts so that they can watch the World Series in style. I feel very Bandwagon-y putting a Rangers shirt on Aaron at this point since in his 19-month life span that is close to the only sports team he has not owned a shirt for!
In other Abby Pregnancy News, you can now see Abby kick if you stare at my stomach long enough. This is way earlier than it occurred with Aaron. I think it is so fun! Some people think that's weird, you know, to watch your stomach jumping but I love it. And in other Major Events, Aaron ate chicken! Seriously. This is actually a huge event in our household. We just sit and stare at him in shock and awe.
