Wii Love APX

No, that's not a typo in the title. We got a Wii! (For those of you that don't know what it is, it's a video game console by Nintendo -- you've probably seen the commercials for them, where the people are golfing or bowling or whatever and act out the motions.) We got it last night and just love it. It is so much fun to play. We're not big video gamers, but I can tell we're gonna be addicted to this one.

The best part about it is that it was free. Well, for us at least. APX is footing the bill for this one. It's one of the extra perks of the job. To help motivate the sales reps to hit 100 good accounts, they offer some little extra something. Last year, we got a free ipod because of it. This year, a Wii.

I wanted to get a good video of Brandon playing. Last night, we were just too into it to stop and take a video. We tried out the golf game. At first, it was a lot of fun. But then we got one really windy course with a lake and I kept hitting my ball into the lake (not on purpose). Being a bad loser, we had to switch to a different game after that. So we tried out the baseball which was a lot of fun, but rather hard. We were sweating trying to get a base hit! Definitely my kind of video game though. (Thank you Bon for recommending it instead of the xbox 360, because I really really like it.)

Anyway, the picture is of Caleb with the box the Wii came in, obviously. I wouldn't trust him near the actual Wii, considering how much he drools and how much he likes sticking things in his mouth. Today he really wanted the strap attached to the controller. It looked like such a fun toy. But since cell phones aren't allowed to be baby toys, I don't think this one is either.

Gotta get the baby to bed so I can play some more!! (I do try to pay attention to my child when he's awake...must be why bedtime is earlier and earlier every night. Either that or the fact that he didn't want to take a nap all day today because he somehow knew that if he did, Mommy would start doing something way more interesting.)
