Teething trouble

I think we got off lightly the first couple of teeth - Gabe's been in a stinking mood for days now, crying and straining constantly.

Here's hoping his teeth arrive soon.

Earn that gold

After being very scared to play online (mostly due to the insane adrenaline rush that comes with a game against real opponents) I girded my loins this evening and dived back into the pain that is the gold league.

After a 5 game winning streak, I think I'm finally improving (or their balancing is making up for the crappy run of games I had earlier in the month). I'm also pleasantly surprised at the quality (socially) of the opponents. They have all, apart from a couple of exceptions, been very sporting and nice folks. New friends on the list!

Starcraft 2 continues to suck my time down. I'm absolutely loving it, and beginning to get past the adrenaline-rush induced shakes that come with playing online competitors. I've gone back to basics with my strategies, and I'm beginning to get to grips with how to play again.

Gabe is starting to stand up - he pulled himself to properly standing inside his little baby prison yesterday. Not long before he's falling over regularly. I guess we'll need to get a bannister and baby gates sorted very soon!

A couple of weeks holiday has led to some painting and hopefully a nice spot on the wall for our incoming Charlie Harper.

Life is good!
