You got it, right?

I hope everyone knows how totally kidding I was about the Eli being smart thing...sometimes I wonder if my sarcasm translates in the blog world. I mean, I really do hope that my child possesses some smarts in that extremely well capacitated nogan of his, but I was mostly just making fun of people who really believe that their kids are gifted and talented at 10 months old...but-not to brag, or anything- Eli IS really gifted and talented at crawling down the hall crying for me, and hitting is head on our very child-unfriendly floors and screaming with wild, ravenously focused on food eyes in between bites. So yeah, maybe he is like SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo smart. I really hope that he does become a voracious and choosy reader someday. But he is not my child prodigy yet. I was just joshing you.

I totally Schruted it the other day. E fell off the changing table. He cried so hard and long. Hopefully you forgot how I mentioned that we only have hard floors two seconds ago...it was so sad. There goes my previously strong bid for mother of the year.

I got a new job. I just wrote and deleted several sentences about this new information and realize that means that I am not exactly ready to discuss it on the internet yet. Perhaps I should take a lesson from my not so speaky husband; he is much better at waiting to share information at the appropriate time. I just always think I should spill it all out all over the place because it is exciting. Anyway, I'll talk about it once I have a better idea of how it is going. Hopefully sometime this year I can translate work from home=supplementary income=new countertops to replace nasty germ infested 1979 white Formica.

oh sad that he fell...this whole crawling thing is just an accident waiting to happen. I can't follow my baby around all day, so i've had to accept the fact that she has become an accident waiting to happen. congrats on the new job!

I am peed my pants when I saw the use of the word 'Shruted.' God bless the office, and God curse the writer's strike.

Good job on the job. Now tell us about it. And, white formica might come back in just when you get ready to change yours. Might.
Poor Eli. Does he have an Audrey bonk now?

I change Savanna on my bed cause we don't have a changing table and she wont stay on her back! She's constantly flipping over. I can't imagine changing her on something higher than the bed! congrats on your new job! I want to hear more! Adam and Aubry are exactly the same. Men....

Agreed about the writer's strike.

Yeah for the job! So sad he fell though! And I still think you have a bid for mother of the year! :) Accidents happen- Jason fell off our bed a month ago...he cried and cried and then started to laugh. What a boy. But I am excited when you spill your news about the new job. Shruted- love it.
