It’s Saturday. It’s been a pretty quiet Saturday. Aside from Chilkat’s wailing. She’s been a little cranky today. Probably because she won’t take any god damn naps. “Go to bed, Mommy wants a bath!”
She can crawl now. She doesn’t do it terribly often, but she did it maybe three times as much today as she did yesterday. She prefers to army crawl (she really prefers to walk, but that requires parental intervention), but she drags her left leg along behind her as though she’s been shot. She has stood unassisted for very short durations a few times. Her balance is clearly improving, but she forgets to hold on to things for stability. She’ll be leaning stably against a parent or some other furniture, and then just turn around. And fall.
She babbles more. She still strongly prefers her mom. She’s been getting two food meals a day. Today she had green beans for the first time. She wasn’t a big fan of apples, although she liked them when combined with carrots or cinnamon (or both). Today she pooped on the carpet and my shirt. I think we have it on video. Well, the carpet part. “What is that on her leg?” “That’s poop!” The shirt part came when I was changing her diaper.
No new teeth to report.
We visited Mom and Grandma in Bellingham, which was nice but rather rushed. We came back for Aquanetta’s birthday party and enjoyed hot pot for the first time (it’s awesome!). Chilkat nearly dumped a bowl of soup on my lap, but I swiftly (and suavely) dodged her attack.
We met new people (the Popes’ neighbors), who have a son close to Chilkat’s age who is over 20 pounds. He looks like a bowling ball. They were cool people. That guy actually has heard of my company! At Aquanetta’s birthday soup thing, there was another girl about Chilkat’s age who weighed 13 pounds or so. Tiny!
So, I can’t think of much else to say. White Sox suck. Bears looked good the first game and bad the second game. We’ll be hanging out at a bar again tomorrow to see how they perform.
Here are some pictures. By the way, expect more random stuff as KrisDi experiments with photography.
