Tooth #1

We have a tooth, which I imagine accounts for the crankiness of the past several days, possibly even weeks. Hopefully we manage a good night of sleep out of this before we start again. And there are... 20?... of these that need to come in. So we only have 19 left...!?!?! Gah!

Ren Faire 08

It was an interesting day. Aed had a good time, I think. He got to see sheep, goats, a cow, a horse and some geese. He was more interested in the big umbrellas that were the animal's shade though. He squealed over the elephant. Basically, the colors were what got him. He seemed amazed at the number of people and was a bit annoyed with the rough terrain. A good day, for sure.

It's already October. It seems like it was just January but here it is 10 months later. My 5 month old is nuts. He's got a killer smile. And he still has blue eyes. I'm thinking that they're staying. Common word seems to be that if they were going to turn darker they would have started to already. But they're still a deep slate blue color. Very pretty. Very Irish. Especially with the blond hair and the pale skin like Mommy. I've been told he still looks like me, despite the differences in hair and eye color. It's cute.

He has an enormous fascination with his feet. He's pretty good at holding them, especially when you're trying to change his diaper. This, obviously, makes changing a diaper fairly tricky but it makes him happy. The simple stuff, I guess.

He can also sit up by himself. Not straight upright, but he holds himself up with his hands and as long as he doesn't try to lean to far to one side he's good. I have a baby who's very interested in his world. He's getting bigger. It's pretty awesome.
