Blogging rampage!

Wow, three blog entries for the price of one today! Did I mention I finished finals yesterday?

Anyway, I was just looking at my first blog entry of Zeus and saw the picture of him lying on the chair. So I turned around and snapped a picture of him in the very same spot (he's quite fond of his chair) today, eight weeks later. He's a beast!

2d Design Portfolio

As promised in my previous blog entry (which I just posted about 45 minutes ago, so don't forget to scroll down and read it!) Here is some of my most recent work in web, design, and animation. Enjoy!


Update: Okay, so I got going on this and realized I'm going to run out of time before I can post everything that I wanted to. So the animation and Flash stuff will have to wait until my next post. I did, however, finish my 2D design portfolio. Click on any of the images to see a larger version and a description. Feedback is always welcome! Enjoy!

You'll need a browser using Flash 8 to see this properly. Or you can go straight to my portfolio with this link here, no flash necessary:

Our child the lime


Sorry for the long delay in updates everybody. I just finished my finals this week and am greatly relieved to be done (at least for a couple weeks). I've had some requests to post some of my most recent work in animation and web design, but before I do that, I need to formally (as formal as blogging can get at least) announce that Lydia and I are pregnant! ESPECIALLY Lydia. :)

We found out just a couple months ago. It didn't come as much of a surprise because we had been trying for a couple weeks. The funny this is, it turns out little baby was actually conceived before we even started trying! Maybe Heavenly Father knew we were going to be trying so He just sped up the process for us or something. :)

So anyway, Lydia is now three months pregnant and the morning sickness phase is fading rapidly (which she's very grateful for). We had our first ultrasound about a month ago, and got to see our little child! He was then only the size of a kidney bean, but now he's a lime! That's my boy! Or is it my girl? We'll find that out in about five weeks. Which brings me to my next paragraph.

Any ideas for boy names? If it's a girl we will name her Kathryn and call her Kate. However, we haven't thought of too many boy names. I've always kind of liked Calvin and Miles. If we named him Miles though, his name would be Miles Michael Metcalf. Which would be awesome for entering your initials in at the arcade when you beat the high score! It's important to think ahead about these things.

So that's the big news! Enjoy this picture of our little lime (maybe we could name him "Lyman" after my dad :))

Look, you can see his/her heart beating (little white spot)!
