Hall Monitor

So, Duncan had a little bout of diarrhea the other day, along with some pretty awful diaper rash (which, gratefully, is rare for him.) In my infinite wisdom, and in the spirit of letting it all air out down there, I let him go diaper free after his bath. He was having fun! Frolicking! Giggling! Such video-worthy cuteness! So, as I was getting the camera ready he the hallway. I will spare you the details.

Called husband with a bit of panic in my voice, "um, where are you?" Thankfully, he was in the driveway. Quickly handed off boy (who thankfully had not danced in his mess...although he was doing that little baby stomp dance, his feet miraculously missed the pooh) and went to clean it up.

Ah, glamour!

Evidence of inujry...indentation in window sill left by toddler tooth.

And, nice recovery. Posted by Picasa


Duncan has become a lover of books. We have a constant pile in the living room of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Who is Sleeping (my favorite...great book), That's Not My Truck, Cuddly Puppies, and Goodnight Moon. He wakes up wanting to sit in a lap and read, and it's the last thing we do at night and often during the day. We are thrilled!

I was aghast the other day when I came home from teaching to find him with my mother, watching Teletubbies. She said, "he loves it!" Egad. It freaks me out. Very creepy show. There will be no Teletubbies from now on. Sesame Street? Maybe.

Bloody Hell

First bloody injury today. Hell. Was walking around, very cute, with big red pillow, making happy funny baby noises when "bam!" crashed into window sill with pillow unfortunately low and inside of lip coming into direct contact with toothy pegs. Had screaming toddler with blood pouring from mouth and mom in new white (albeit Target) shirt. Bloody hell.

Now toddler is chewing on piece of ice in baby safe mesh bag.
