This is Karl.

this weekend was the first time im my life that if given the chance i would have killed a person.
if he just asked i would have given him my video camera, with out ethans birth tape in it.
i am so filled with anger, frustration, revenge, everything that isnt of God, all because of this ignorant, thieving, piece of scum that doesnt even disserve to live. people like him make me lose so much faith in the human race.

who is up for some Molotov cocktails.....anyone?!

So - our house got broken in to this weekend.
We know exactly who did it - and we are pretty sure that we know where he lives, or at least where he's tried selling stuff before.
As he's not the smartest guy - he tried selling us stolen goods before, and our neighbors too.
In fact our neighbor walked with him to his "house" (if he even lives there) where he was trying to sell "brand new dell computers" for $20. Yeah, ok.
Any way - I was in the house when it happened, with the baby. The dogs were getting riled up, but I knew Karl would be pulling in any second with a pizza so I kept them locked in the bedroom with me, thinking it was him. Go, figure it wasn't. And Karl pulled in right as the neighbors saw him running out of hour house with a "VCR" and some other stuff. Well it turns out that he got Karl's XBox, all of his games, our video recorder, and most importantly the tape of Ethan's birth.
Needless to say, we're both pretty shakin' up about it, and I'm absolutely devastated to loose our birth tape. How dare he! And the sad part is that he'll probably just crush the tape and sell the video recorder for $5.
The police came by and took the report. Made two false arrests almost immediately. And if that wasn't enough the cop made Santos (the neighbor) and I get in his car and "just show" him where the guy brought Santos the other day. When we pull up a person open and shuts the door quickly and so the cop jumps out, makes an arrest of some guy who doesn't fit the description at all except that he's got a white shirt on and he's black - and exposes us to the whole group of people who live in that apartment. He makes me tell them the description I gave him, and makes Santos tell them all that he knows the guy who stole my stuff, and the guy who tried selling him the Dell lives there.
Awesome, so now all of those people know where we live, and that we both narked their brother/room-mate/friend/fellow-crime-commiter out to the police.
They got one finger print off of the door, but I'll bet you anything it's mine or Karl's - and justice wont be served via the police system. I just pray God has a hold on this situation. Because it's hard not to be vengeful and bitter. But mostly I'm just grieving the loss of that precious tape.
Any who.... it's been a bad weekend.

Our first 'firsts'

A lot of firsts, milestones, and awesome things happened/ing this month.
*Ethan can sit like a pro now
*He has cut his first tooth all the way through (hell on earth - literally).
*He is cutting his second tooth!
*He took about 25 seconds worth of sucks on a bottle! (Never did that before)
*He took a few sucks on a sippy cup!
*He's eating "chunky" foods now!
*He's learned that he can lunge, roll, scoot, and do all kinds of funny maneuvers to get around, and get what he wants. He's also popping his knees under, and rocking... crawling soon?! who knows!
*We went back to church for the first time since Ethan was born, and Ethan was left with a "baby sitter" (Baby Bay) for the first time! And 'Nana' watched him for the first time earlier this month. Lots of new things!
*Our backyard neighbors lit off about $3,000 worth of very-illegal, very awesome (huge!) fireworks on the 4th. We weren't going to go because the babe is too small - but they came to us this year!
The next door neighbors say they keep getting bigger every year, so next year we'll have a get-together here.
*One of my favorite, and most exciting things is that I AM GETTING AN iMAC IN THE MAIL TOMORROW!!!! YYYYYEEEAAAAHHHH!
*oh, and we switched insurance providers to AAA and are saving like $100/mo! Yes!
* and we're taking a little vaca at my grandpa/uncle's lake property in two weeks Friday-Sunday! Whoo!
So, any who - God is good! Seriously. We've been obeying and listening to His calls and He's been blessing us beyond our imagination!
