4 Months and cuter than ever

I'm not going to insult you or anyone else by saying "Golly, it's been too long; I'll post more often, I swear." 'cuz I know that's not how it works. But, I will say that I'm sorry I haven't posted more often in the last month or two.

Reason/Excuse: Things are getting better. That is, you sleep more at night (though, not necessarily longer) and are awake more during the day and evening. This means that during my waking hours, you are also awake and therefore not interested in letting me sitting in front of a computer to write you letters. My WoW time has also suffered. ;-)

I would like to note that I am not complaining. I would rather sit in a room and watch you and Momma feed than hole myself away into the office and ignore you two. Hence, I don't have many opportunities to do things like post on blogs. It's my choice. I'd rather be with you than write about being with you.

Anyway. Right now, you and Momma went back to sleep while I was already up, so I've got some time.

Let's see. You're talking now. Not words, not English words anyway, but you are making sounds more than just screaming or crying. You're definitely making vowels and consonant sounds. It's really fascinating to see the little synapses connecting in your brain and you learn a new mouth shape to make a new sound.

Your body is strong enough for me to play with you a little more vigorously. I take you flying now, and you love it. I'll hold your body in my hands and swing you around, up in the air, down by my knees, bring you in for a fly-by (read: a kiss), then send you back out and fly you around again. All the while, you're face has a mix of terror and joy on it. I have a feeling that you're going to be a thrill seaker at places like Disneyland and Great America. My job is to stay not-fat enough to be able to join you, 'cuz I love those rides too.

You started laughing a couple weeks ago. I think I was the first one to see it. We call it your Nerd Laugh 'cuz it's more of a stuttered grunt than a laugh, but you do it while smiling, so that's what we assume it is. :-) It's really damn cute.

We took you to a Halibut party this weekend, a LAN party (in case they've been obsoleted by the time you read this, a LAN party is where everyone gets their computer into one place and connets them all together on a local, high speed network and plays computer games in the same room.) You were a hit. Everyone said how beautiful and well behaved you are. We took you out to breakfast with the gang on Sunday at McLintocks too, and, as always, you were a hit there.

You and I have been going on walks together. If you wake up early and Momma needs more sleep, or if you're not going to sleep and it's pretty late, I'll strap you into the Bjorn, wrap you in a blanket, get my iPod and head out for an hour or two walk. They're really nice, and most of the time, you fall asleep pretty quickly. Of course, if you do, you usually wake up right as we're coming up the drive way. *sigh* But the walks are really nice, good for me, and give Momma some time to herself.

I mentioned earler that we were watching James Bond. Well, we finished all the Bond films and have plowed most of our way through Buffy The Vampire Slayer. We're on Season 5 right now, and, honestly, this is where the show starts to get really dark, broody, and emo. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for dark and emo, but this lays it on a little thick and I've lost interest. So we're moving on to something else.... ...I just haven't figured out what yet.

I'm going to make some breakfast, then wake you and Momma up. We've gotta get ready to take you to the Doctor for a checkup. I love you, baby girl. I realize more and more very day how absoltely madly in love with you I am. Until my next post...
