It's a boy!

Ok, I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything. The suspense has been unbearable for some and this 12 month pregnancy has been extremely difficult for Vanessa. But Cooper is finally here, weighing over 13 pounds. He's already smiling. Pretty soon he'll be walking, talking, and wiping his own rear end.

Seriously, I love being a daddy. The day Cooper was born, I suddenly felt mature (however, that feeling has subsided quite a bit). He's perfect and I'm starting to wish there were two of him!

That's enough for now. I, Clay Bryant, vow to update my blog on a regular basis, admitting full guilt for my recent slackerness.

Almost time...

For those of you who don't know, this is my nephew, AJ. He and my brother and my sister-in-law live in Killeen, TX and we don't get to see them very often. I'm dying to see him again soon - he's growing up so fast! My sister-in-law, Annika posted this picture tonight on her Flickr page. Vanessa and I thought it was really cool. Vanessa tried to post it on her blog, but was having computer issues, so here it is...on mine.

Anyhow, we will leave at 5:45 tomorrow morning to head to the hospital. Our baby boy should arrive in our lives within the next 10 hours or so. We're pretty sure we've got everything ready to go...we hope so at least. But, surprise surprise, Clay is wide awake and doesn't appear to be snoozing anytime soon. Keep us in your prayers. Hopefully, I'll be able to post soon with pictures of our new gift from God.

Top Ten...

Since I haven't posted anything in a few days, and because I'm bored, I thought I'd share one of my favorite things with you...the Late Show Top Ten list. This one's good, and it's pretty appropriate for a lot of us guys.

Top Ten Signs You Are Watching Too Much Football
10. Only fresh air you've had this month is opening the door for the pizza guy.
9. You refer to orange juice as Fedex orange juice.
8. When your wife finishes making dinner, you dump a jug of Gatorade on her.
7. You schedule an appointment to talk to your doctor about Andy Reid's cholesterol.
6. Got a telestrator in the bedroom.
5. Three words: Norve Turner tattoo
4. You fantasize about Gisele Bundchen falling in love with you and introducing you to Tom Brady.
3. When you go to McDonald's you insist on ordering the McNabb
2. Laura has to keep reminding you that you're still President for two more weeks.
1. To be more like your favorite New York Giant, you shoot yourself in the leg.

Vanessa & I recently purchased a digital video camcorder. Since then, I've been playing around with the software it came with. I just found a new deal I hadn't seen before and started toying around. I used pictures of my nephew, AJ, progressing from his birth to now. Here's what I figured out in the first 15 minutes or so.

Well...wow. I guess I have to say it was a pretty good game. I'm sure some people will cry that we gave them the win because of two redzone turnovers, but every losing team can say that about every game. You make more mistakes, you lose...you make less mistakes you win. OU played well the first half, but that's about it. I'm not looking forward to all the talk about Chokelahoma and Bob Stoops sucking in big bowl games. All I can say is, OU's been to 4 national championships in 9 years. Can any other team say that? Didn't think so.

One gripe I have...if I hear one more "Tim Tebow is Jesus" type comment I'm going to hold a gun in my hand and shoot off all 10 of my toes one at a time. Someone who flaunts their spirituality to the world probably shouldn't be getting taunting penalties on a national platform. And Tebow winning the offensive MVP award is a joke. Percy Harvin dominated that game. Anyone who watched that game who knows football realizes that he was the true MVP.

Not much else to say. I'm glad OU made it to the national championship. Sure, would've liked for them to have won, but you've got to give props to the Gators. Other than that, I hope to see USC, Utah, and Texas play a round robin "Whiners Bowl Playoff" sometime in the next couple of weeks.


It's game time!

This is me...

This is Vanessa...

I'm afraid the game is going to stress Vanessa out and cause her to go into labor...then I won't get to watch the game. Don't forget...reply to my post and tell me what date you think Cooper will arrive. I'm keeping a calendar.
