Everthing's blurry

W: It's been awhile since I've penned a post on the blog. I know, WTF, right? Seriously, it would be simplistic to say that I've been too busy juggling the usual dad stuff (work, kids, wife, a Vegas bachelor party, fantasy football, MLB playoffs, etc).

The truth is I have plenty of time to write. My problem is keeping up with the Deuce.

Every time I set fingers to keyboard, they've moved on and my latest writing idea is as stale as the Oatie O's lurking their highchairs.

As you may have guessed, I like to take lots of photos. And writing about the Deuce is like being a photographer taking a shot of a subject that is moving so fast that you only have two choices. The first choice is to hold the camera still and take a blurry picture of the subject while capturing the detail of the background. The second option is to track your subject with the camera, sacrificing the background for a subject in perfect detail. Try to do both at once, and the whole shot turns out blurry.

That's what's been happening to me, blurry writing. So pardon me while I share a few of the topics that I almost blogged over the past month.

They are everywhere all at once. To baby-proof or not to baby-proof? (We went half way). How much potting soil can a baby eat before you notify the on-call nurse? They can pick up Cheerios! What do you mean O-gubba climbed half way up the stairs? I can't believe how much baby food I just made. Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da! Why is the Deuce attracted to wires and outlets and my BlackBerry instead of all those fun toys? Finally, they feed themselves with a bottle. Our "divide and conquer Sundays" totally rule.

And so on and on goes the list. The topics pile up faster than I can write, and so rather than try to keep up, I'll share a few of my new favorite pictures. I hope you enjoy them.
