Karen and Beck drove up north to the Burlington Mall this week to meet up with our friend Kristen and her daughter Corrin for a quick catch up and mall walk (which is how you get 'outside' in the wintertime).
In other news, my dad and brother have fully prepared Beck for life as a major leaguer, sending along a 34 ounce customized 2004 World Series commemorative Louisville Slugger with his named etched in the sweet spot. My dad made a bat holder as well, the laces in the glove are from the mitt he's been playing with for the last couple years in the Mammoth Mountain Softball League. In the picture below, you can also see a photograph of my grandpa, Harold Johnson, in his baseball uniform. He's the one on the far left.
You can find all the pictures here.

Some of you (you'll remain nameless for now) can't seem to get enough pictures of Beck. I can't wait till the kid can type and use a mouse so that he can post his own pictures. This last week (click on it! there's pictures in that there link!) included a visit to AWC where Karen used to work to see friends including Kristen, John and Catherine. Saturday our friend Lissa came down from Boston to spend a couple hours with us (at least she said she came to see us, I think it was just to see Beck). Unfortunately, she's a secret agent so we can't show her face (actually the photographer [cough... Karen] didn't get Lissa in the picture... oh well, next time k Lissa?).
Since the last time we talked, Beck got his shots and got weighed. He came in at 13 pounds 6 ounces and has grown an inch and a half since he was born. I'm learning scheme in my classes at school right now, so at the rate he's growing right now (1.5 inches in 2 months) he'll be:
> (/ (* (/ 1.5 2) 12 20) 12))
which if you don't have a scheme runtime installed works out to be about 15 feet tall by the time he's 20. I'm not sure I want to work out the weight because I remember how much I ate when I was 14.
If you're still reading this, you need to go look at the pictures now.

Outfit from Great Grandma & More Bath Pictures
Karen wanted me to snap some pictures of Beck having his "bath time" (I wish I had bath time) which he seems to enjoy alot. He expresses his enjoyment by waving his arms and kicking his legs like he's riding a bike or something, which I guess is natural if you've been cooped up in a womb for 9 months. Probably feels good to stretch out now and then. The last shot in the sequence is him mooning my mom.

Super Bowl Sunday
Mike, Shena and Sara all came over to celebrate the inevitable Patriots win in the Super Bowl. Shena and Sara were both brave enough to hold Beck, Mike apparently doesn't think he's as strong as Sara or Shena so he opted out of the Baby Holding Experience (BHE). We took a bunch of pictures before the game of Beck hanging out on the bed with his toys, which he seems to enjoy while he's having his FB time (it's a guy thing).
