Here’s this week’s highlight – and lowlight – for our about-to-be-one-year-old son:


Taking his first two or three real steps! (Although crawling’s clearly still his preferred mode of transportation.)


Shoving a handful of cat food, as well as a dog treat that some woman in the park thought it would be a good idea to give him, right into his mouth.

Guess all that walking really built up his appetite.

How about you guys?

  1. High- Belting out Little Mermaid “Part of Your World” with my 3 year old daughter as we drove to her gymnastics class. I think she might have just beaten my last karaoke performance of that same song!

    Low- Sneaking my I-phone in the bathroom to send an e-mail (so my electronic obsessed 3 year old wouldn’t ask for my phone) and then dropping it in the toilet. It is currently sealed up in a bag full of rice.
