I finished up a pendant I programmed for the Grand Rapids Comic Con this weekend. It's an Adafruit Gemma with a small battery soldered to an 8x8 LED matrix. It flips through a few different Justice League logos in a few different colors. Originally I had tried to program some different Zelda icons but a lot of them looked wonky on such a small grid.

Quinn's arc reactor for his Iron Man suit is mostly done but we'll see if I can actually use it. He  seemed uncomfortable with the costume since it has fake muscles and is puffy. So I may end up saving the arc reactor I soldered awhile back for another year if he truly won't wear the costume. 20 months is kind of pushing it expecting him not to grab a blinking light anyway.

I'm ready for this election to be over. Is it election day yet?

 A co-worker of mine is got married today! She had a lovely ceremony and the reception was in her awesome backyard.
She had awesome food, there was good company, and everyone looked like they were having a great time.
Quinn had a fantastic time running around her huge yard and being chased by Chris.

I really like how large a single emoticon will appear on the screen when you get messages. If you scroll back at a later date it's smaller, but the first time it pops up it's big - which makes it easy to see at a glance.

I love this watch. Seriously.

Chris's dad came out and visited today. Quinn sounds like he had a blast!

You can't really tell in the photo, but we're watching an episode of Pajanimals over Quinn's crib. I bought Chris an early birthday gift, which was a pico projector, and he was testing it out.

For awhile Quinn was using silverware, but he's gone back to eating everything with his fingers, including oatmeal.

We picked up a BB8 costume for Quinn yesterday. He's a little unnerved by the roundness of it. Maybe it will grow on him.
