I’ve been able to take the week off between Christmas and New Year’s to hang with the family, so I haven’t had a lot of time to blog. Mostly because I’ve been laying on the ground watching Elijah decide on his crawling method.
He is currently vacillating between “The Steamroller” and “Watch Out For Snipers.”
“The Steamroller” is, well, rolling to get from point A to Point B. It’s pretty effective, but pretty inaccurate. He spies something across the room, like, say a group of wires connecting expensive electronics to baby frying volts. And then he rolls. Because his head is so much bigger than the rest of him, he usually ends up off course and distracted by a big black dog or a big black dog’s slobbery toy.
“Watch Out For Snipers” is the old fashioned army crawl. I imagine him and his baby battalion pinned down by enemy fire and only my son is brave enough to crawl across the living room to unleash…uh…hugs and kisses and puppies.
We’re nearing the end of 2007. I’ll be collecting all of this year’s blogs and throwing them into book form shortly after Jan 1. That way fans like my mom and Juliet Greenberg can have a hardbound edition for their bookshelves.
