The New M.A.S.H.

When I was in grade school and couldn't sleep, I used to turn on the little TV in my room. It seemed like after 11:00pm the only show that was ever on was M.A.S.H. At the age of 10 or 12 that show was sort of funny, but it was a little over my head. But I knew that it wouldn't be scary so I would tune in. I came to despise it.
So with a newborn, there are a lot of late nights/ early mornings. If you noticed on our "what we are watching list" I usually watch music videos. So late at night, the only alternatives are Paid Programming or "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air". THIS, my friends, is the new M.A.S.H. This dumb show is on at all hours of the day. I will go so far as to say that at a certain time and place this show had its place? And seeing Will Smith in his acting debut is kinda cute. But that lasted for only one re-run.
I now can only dream of a re-run episode of M.A.S.H. REAL humor based on the issues of that day, smartly written... and with real actors! It incorporated a little history with entertainment, which I'm all about these days. I try in vain to find it on any late night line-up. But, to no avail.
Instead, I tune in to MTV and VH1. If a video comes on by Phil Collins, at least I now it won't be longer then 3 minutes...

progress of moving-

so... we still haven't "moved in" to our apartment yet. We did some painting today- finishing the living room accent wall and the dinning room nook. I don't think we are going to paint Georgia's room before we move in; which is fine, since GK (Georgia Kathleen) is still in our room anyway. Tyler and Dustin Bryan moved our dinning room set in last week and Tyler set that up today. :) And I packed up almost all of our clothes. But man, when we come home from work, it is feed the baby and feed ourselves... and go to bed. We are having the EQ coming Saturday night to help move the couches, the bed, and the bedroom furniture. I just don't know how we are going to have everything else ready to go by then...

little updates

So now starts the little mundane steps of developement that Tyler and I get excited about. enough to blog about them. I figure that they might be lame but in a few years... or in a few weeks I won't remember the little wonders that we are experiencing day to day.

Georgia clocks in at 8lbs 11 oz this week. She is focusing her eyes more. Tyler and I will be on one side of her and call her name or shake a rattle and watch her turn her head to the noise and breifly focus. It's so awesome when she looks into my eyes... even if it is just for a moment. We let her sleep the night, and she wakes us when she is hungry. THIS is great. she wakes up only once during the night, as Ty and I get up at 4:30 to feed her every morning before getting ready for work. Georgia is getting more hair however, it's growing in blonde. Her eyebrows are still blonde; they are filling in a little too. In the past few days we have noticed she has all these new eyelashes growing in! I'm really excited about that. She has had like 5 long lashes since she was born... it was like a switch turned on. All of them started growing in at the same time. She has also started flicking her tongue around. Well, that is about it for now. I'm sure there will be PLENTY more to come. :)
