Back to reality now, but the beach trip was terrific! Here’s a small sample of the good times:



Catching up: Critter stats June 10, 2008

Howdy folks!

It’s hot. It’s Africa hot – and I should know. So we’re hunkered down inside, with the curtains drawn and fans running. The thunder has started to roll, so hopefully things means that the coming storm will bring some cooler weather.

So it’s time to catch up on some recent developments:

  • The boy hit the 9 month mark and is heading for 10 months
  • He’s upwards of 19 pounds now
  • He has a neverending ear infection – we’re on antibiotic #3 now. Sigh.
  • He recently discovered his tongue and is sticking it out all the time. He also loves to go bla blah blu blue bla balah all the time, tongue a-waggin’
  • He’s pulling up on everything, and laughing when it doesn’t go so well. We hope he’ll hang on to that particular personality quirk for a while.
  • As of the past 48 hours, he’s cruising. On Sunday, it took him 30 minutes to move one foot to his left. This morning, he was halfway around the coffee table within a few minutes.
  • He laughs ALL the time.
  • We’re heading to the beach in a couple of weeks and we can’t wait to see everyone on my side of the family. The Alaskan contingent now officially lives East of the Mississippi and South of the Mason-Dixon line and we’ll get to see them – hooray!!!
