Things Full of the Awesome!

Or otherwise titled "I don't know why we bought him toys".

Here is item one. Note the extreme awesomeness radiating from it.

Yep. That's the ceiling fan from our bedroom. Occasionally Doug is so transfixed by its awesome whirlyness that he actually forgets to eat. Other times when he gets fussy all Jeff has to do is spin the fan with his hand (if it's off) and Doug will settle down and grin at the fan.

The next item's awesomeness is somewhat apparent to all, but maybe I just really like it.

This hangs over our love seat, which is usually where we're sitting when we feed Doug in the living room. And woe onto you if you decided to sit somewhere else where he can't see it to feed him.

Item number three has only recently been infused with the awesome. Either that or Doug has gone several weeks without noticing it.

It's a digital picture frame. We got one after we got married and as we left it on all the time, it burnt out. So this one is on a timer, so it's only on in the evening. Try to explain that to an eleven week old who has a tantrum when he looks over at it and it's not on. Lets just say it's been on a LOT more frequently lately.

The next item I have very mixed feelings about it. I'm not very happy that Doug already thinks it's awesome.

It's Anduril, you know, forged from the shards of Narsil. Needless to say, its something Jeff got before me and will get put away before Doug gets too old.

Maybe we'll save some serious money on toys...


  1. HAHA those things are indeed awesome!

  2. Of course it's Andural, forged from the shards of Narsil. How could I have forgotten that???

  3. My husband of course, saw the ad for the LOTR swords, and decided he needed to go and look at more. He wants it to be known that he was not seriously contemplating buying another one. That's what he said, anyway...
