I played a game that I am creating for the iPhone today and up until now, this score (1500) has felt humanly impossible to reach. After many ours of beta testing I finally reached this. My buddy Brandon (Also a Taptocolor developer) and I have been trying to beat our highest score over and over again. The crazy thing about this score is, when I first started playing Taptocolor, 900-950 was the highest I could get. It was frustrating because I couldn’t beat it. Then later, I was able to get higher… then higher… then higher. My brain was adapting to the rhythm of the colors in this game and is getting better and better. This was very exciting to know that just a couple weeks later after the first testing of the app, our scores were getting almost double of what we were able to make.
Thats all for this post, it was short, any some people may not care, but it was something to write about!
Also, If you don’t know what Taptocolor is, thats ok… you will soon! :) It’s still a secret!
I now have a little 2 year old
Wow. I can’t believe that our little Elly is 2 years old today. It seems like just yesterday when she came into this world and Colleen’s and my life was changed forever. We became parents. This is probably the best gift that we have ever had: now having two little precious girls. It’s amazing how unprepared Colleen and I were when we had Elly yet how prepared God was for us. There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by that Elly hasn’t been fed, or unclothed. The scariest thing about being a parent is always wanting to be the best parent you can possibly be. Wanting to protect from all harm and love your little kid just as Christ loves us all.
I remember how reaching back to get the passy for Elly and holding it for her while driving was such an incredibly difficult task to do, but after a while it was natural, it was natural. I remember when I used to sing songs to Elly in the recliner as she would just smile as I sang, and now she sings with me. I remember when I used to carry Elly while trying to hold cups, bags, and keys and praying I had strength to make it from my car to the front door, and now Elly helps hold cups and bags for me as I carry her. I used to hear Colleen saying hi babe when I would get in from work, and now I hear a cute little voice yelling “daaa… Daaa. Daddy.” when I walk through the door.
There are many baby qualities that Col and I are sad to see go as Elly grows up, but Ellys new traits are absolutely amazing. No matter how old she is getting, she will never run out of firsts! Soon she will be riding a bike!
I just wanted to write and reflect real quick on the little princess that makes me so blessed to be her daddy… Elianna! It is as if I’ve never known life without you sweet Elly, you will always be Colleen’s and my baby! I love you Elly with all my heart. Happy Birthday! :)
