Blogger-in-training: a SHA Girl’s Xmas Gift to the Loys

Thursday, December 27th, 2007
Since Brendan and Becky will soon be welcoming our beloved mini-Loy into their household, and since Brendan’s time will undoubtedly be tied up thereafter, we have decided that the blog must live on! So, for maintenance purposes, I took it upon myself to teach little Logan the ways of the blogosphere.

Someone has to keep this site rolling!

Baby’s first Mighty

More Logan pics after the jump.


Last day in Buffalo

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

Becky, Shannon, Logan and I met up with Mike Wiser at Starbucks this afternoon, as he was visiting the Buffalo area as well. Naturally, because if there’s no picture it didn’t happen, we took a photo of Mike with Logan and me:

Later in the day, we put Logan in the adorable outfit that Kristy bought him in Denver:

Never fear, Kristy: there will be more pictures to come. We took a lot. :) Oh, and speaking of outfits, Shannon and PJ gave us our first baby clothes for little Zucchini Loy. The one on the left says “instructions not included.” The one on the right will be especially appropriate if the baby is born on its due date:


Tomorrow, we head east to the Adirondacks, where we’ll meet up with my parents and my uncle & aunt at the latter’s cabin on Pleasant Lake (not to be confused with Lake Pleasant).

A new Makem & Clancy fan in training?

Just wait till I have one of my own to indoctrinate… :)

Speaking of which, Becky is 19 weeks pregnant as of yesterday, which means that little Baby Loy now “measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the length of a small zucchini.” From A(vocado) to Z(ucchini) in just three weeks! And if all goes well with the ultrasound next Monday, hopefully we’ll find out whether he’s a male zucchini or a female zucchini!

A glimpse of the future

I can't believe we're going to have one of these in a few months… :)

Pericles and Logan

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

During our trip to Buffalo last weekend, we had a great time visiting with Shannon, P.J., Barb, Weston, Casey, a couple of Casey’s Ph.D. friends, and the Bfloblog guys. But with all due respect to all of them, in terms of raw entertainment value, they just can’t match Casey’s octopus or Shannon and P.J.’s baby. :) Here are some video clips of those two — first Pericles, then Logan:

Sorry it took so long to get those online. Incidentally, my photo gallery of the trip, including the Sabres game, is here.

Testing, testing

Is cell-phone photo posting via Flickr working again? This is a test. … It is also a picture, taken Saturday afternoon, of the endlessly adorable Logan trying to grab my phone. :)

Logan says, “Go Sabres!”

Laettner’s shot, 15 years later

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

Today is the 15th anniversary of Christian Laettner’s famous shot lifting Duke over Kentucky in the greatest game in college-basketball history.

Duke sucks, and Christian Laettner can bite me. But that was a great shot (and a great pass). The above link contains a video clip.

That reminds me… Shannon’s baby-daddy, P.J., is a lifelong Duke fan. So when they were visiting us over spring break, and we were playing Scattergories, and I had to come up with a “villain” that starts with the letter “L,” naturally I wrote down “Laettner.” After considerable debate, and subjecting it to the Google test, my answer was grudgingly accepted as legit. Hehe.
