What's Going Down

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Sorry bout that.

I know. I've been doing some major blog-slacking. I throw myself on the mercy of the blogosphere. I don't really have a great excuse except to admit that Lucas does NOT sleep through the night. Well, any more anyway. He's not exactly what you might call, "Calm." He's needy. And pinchy. And the backs of my arms and my neck skin are crying "uncle" at the mere sight of him.
But, oh! The sight of him.

Would you believe he made his grand debut already 6 months ago? (On Friday.) And he's sitting.
look ma! no hands!
he sits!
And trying desperately to get his knees under him. (Note to self: get a picture of it.)
And good heavens, he loves the solid foods. We're TRYING to be good and do all the typical baby food stuffs first, but certain people (MELINDA!!!) fed him some tiny licks of ice cream! And he's nommmed on a chocolate chip cookie! And he adored the pinto beans from Betos Panchos.

And not a moment too soon. Every thing within arms reach now enters his mouth. Hair, toys, blankets, your shirt, and on and on.
nom nom.

What can I say, kid likes to eat! And good thing too, since he needs to bulk up a bit. But I do so love this kid. Despite his neediness. Despite his "up at night" behavior. Despite the pinching. (Please, make the pinching stop.)

Yes, I think we'll keep him.

Heeheeheee! Hey I'm just doing what a good Auntie would do. Sugar 'em up and then send them back to mama. And btw those were very, VERY small licks of ice cream. He gonna love me best.;)

That looks like a nice fat baby for me. I would cook him up in a roasting pan on top of some leeks, potatoes and celery.
