Kean is one big strong baby, he’s way different when you pick him up how Max was at the same age, so chunky. He has started learning to crawl, one of positions he ends up in while trying is a fully extended pushup!
This milestone is not signifies the completion the project and a lot of hard work, but also ticks off another personal goal.
Back when I finished Rhys Quest/Dispell I set myself the goal of getting a game published up on the XBox, at the time XNA was only a rumour so I had no idea how I might achieve that goal. Fortunately for me the tools available to me and our direction at work coincided with Microsoft’s direction with XNA and it all came together.
The big question now is where to go from here?
Max has like most kids (I think), a thing for pushing around trolleys and karts, anything with wheels really. He got a plastic lawn mower to practice with for Xmas, it was funny to see him wobbling around in the wind out on the stoop.
He later on found something even more fun to push around, his cuz in the walking ring.
Kean is a very contented man-child, happy play away on his mat most of the time letting out the occasional yelp, just to let you know he’s still there… he also pulls some funny faces.
We actually had quite a few days of bad weather while we were at the coast, so when we had a good day we had to make the most of it. The water was bloody freezing, but somehow you got used to it and it didn’t seem that bad.
Max enjoyed walking in the little waves and playing in the sand, Kean seemed to enjoy eating it!
I was disappointed when i found out that we had no bon-bons for Christmas, it’s just not Christmas without the bad jokes and ill fitting hats… so I took it upon myself to make some.
I was lucky to find the left over balloons from the Drichie Kart promo video in the car so I put them to good use.
Yeah sure it’s a little late, but we had a great break down the coast and were offline the whole time. We didn’t really get up to a lot, most days consisted of:
- Everyone eventually getting up, depending on what the babies where up to sleep wise.
- Chilling out with a late breakfast.
- Stooge around till mid afternoon, hit the beach if it was a nice , after which we’d all crack a drink.
- Afternoon nibbles of some sort.
- All chip in with prepping a nice dinner.
- Chow down.
- A few drinks over a game of poker or 30 seconds and hit the sack.
Pretty hard to take really!
We were fortunate to have both Neels and Marge down the coast with us for Christmas day, the boys got spoilt rotten and the rest of us ate, drank and were merry.
We all had a great day.
