Stars with Elmo

Originally uploaded by m0nk3yphd

This is a surprisngly funny story book. A gift from Linda in Florida... Zachary just looked so serious, and he kept trying to beep the star (every time it says STARS you're supposed to beep it. Beep. Beep)... It is super hard to beep, though, which makes it not so annoying. Well, for us. It is probably really annoying to him that he can't beep it. Eh.

that's right teeth, plural, after what seems like months of on and off fussing combined with enough drool to power a small hydroelectric plant. Two molars, back left, not just breaking through but enamel poking out of gums. And yes, who gets molars before all the front teeth are in, I mean seriously.

Learning to walk gets tricky

with the slippery cold white stuff.

vegetarian or cannibal

this was breakfast this morning. I hope the apple demonstrates that we were not in fact withholding food. Really. He must just have very tasty toes.

You people are intense. That's all I have to say about that.
And without further ado...

Until people occasionally comment. Seriously. We're lonely in cyberspace. ;)

and I took him out to play in the falling snow on a gray Monday afternoon. He was not overly impressed, with the cold or the wet.

alpha baby

so here is a quick glimpse into the life of a child who is growing up surrounded by computers, and parents tiptapping on them. Of course he wants to grab at them too. This program locks it up allowing him to bang away at the keyboard, without buggering up our hard drives.

Worst Bloggers Ever

Sorry. We're so busy. Phds + baby + eating = no time remaining. None.

In news... Its freakishly cold here. Zachary got his first time out at daycare. For hitting. Oy. We've been assured its a phase. Its leading to spoon confiscation.

Zachary also is in the middle of his first ear infection. We caught it super early at his last checkup. He's been pretty good about the ammoxicilin. He's full on into toddlerhood at the moment though. Any request results in a shriek - this evening he managed to collapse mightly before he realized actually yes please he would like his ammoxicilin, drank the whole thing down, stood up, and wandered off. Right. Just kidding. No one was actually feeding him to floor pirannhas. His bad. Cat!


Toddler is such a misnomer. Sure. They toddle. But what about "Uncalibrated nuclear weapon"? This would be so much more informative.....

Catch & Release

Bath Grab

Ummm Hmmm.

Today Zachary spent his bath collecting up as many toys as he could in his arms and then redistributing them. And then catching them all up again. It was a game of infinite joy. We should all be so easily entertained.
