Hi there.
How are things?
I'm okay. Been a bit quiet, I know. School. Four classes. Big mistake.


Much to do, no time to do it.

Also, Pierce time.


It's been a while since I have spammed, and he is almost 15 months (Yowza!)

Yesterday he took a step, his first, and it's fantastic and frightening, as walking means running, and he's already hard to keep up with when he crawls everywhere.

Needless to say, I'm excited.

He's amazing.

I mentioned he was a climber, I'm pretty sure. If I haven't, well, he is. I put him down for less than 30 seconds yesterday, while I locked the stroller (when getting home from the park), and in that 30 seconds he had climbed up two flights of steps. Yikes! He loves to climb. He also loves to eat. Here he is combining his loves:

Jenny calls this picture King Kong. Apparently she ran to get something from her room, leaving him playing with blocks in the living room. This is what she came back to. Apparently he was grabbing food, taking a bite, and then throwing it to the floor. Just thinking about it makes me laugh.

He also loves slides:

He will climb up the jungle gym, turn around and slide down feet first on his belly. He loves it, laughs hysterically, and repeats it over and over (and over and over). The only time I stop him is when he tries to go down face first, as there wouldn't be anyone to catch him at the bottom, so his face would be called to duty. I don't think he realizes how much he'd dislike that.

He's the coolest kid on the swing-set:

He's all about comfort and putting his feet up:

He's still a sweet little snuggler (though I don't have any pictures at the moment), and when he's busy reading or climbing or pulling things off shelves or what-have-you, he will still pause with some frequency to take a moment to cuddle. It's amazing to me that he's not a baby anymore. He's a toddler, and really becoming a little boy:

(I'm sorry about the sideways picture. LJ is being a pain in the ass)
But he's still not too far beyond his infancy:

(He loves an apple with peanut butter, just like his Aunt Annie).

I can't believe how big he is, and how wonderful. Just when I think he can't be more amazing and I can't love him more, he is and I do.

I just can't get enough of him.
/end gush

Hey! Here's a question: does anyone know why LJ has been so freaking slow lately? I feel like it loaded faster when I was on dial-up eight years ago . . .

I frequently try to open pages on LJ, and they won't load at all until I hit refresh. I don't know if that's similar to what you're seeing on your end. I'm assuming that the weirdness is due to whatever it is that LJ's doing to thwart further DDoS attacks. But who knows. You might want to pop into the next news post and ask about it if the site is that slow for you.

First step! So exciting. And I will now go weep about my niece becoming an adult this week....

You have a command of this "logic" think that I seem not to possess. Notify the lj administrators. So crazy, it just might work!

Oh, lordy, 18? I can't even think of it. I was just flipping out the other day thinking that one day he'd be four! FOUR!

He is PRECIOUS. That King Kong picture (that is EXACTLY what it's like!) is pretty much the most perfect thing EVER. I just can't believe he's gotten so big--and I'm just a random observer, so I can only imagine how shocking this development is to you. :D

It is astounding how little he was, compared to how BIG he is. He just keeps getting better, too! I love it, not gonna lie.

That King King picture is pretty much my favorite picture ever. That look of guilt, but mostly defiance.
I half expect tiny helicopters to fly around his head.

Aw, presh! <3<3

LJ has been super slow for me, too, but I never know if it's LJ, my aging laptop, or my internet connection.

Darn you, LJ! I have . . . lj things! To do! Yeah . . .

He's my sweet boy, and I love him so.

Awwww, PK. Can't believe how big he's getting.

LJ is slow for me, too, lately.

He's HUGE, Sunny! Like, 25 pounds! That is more than FIVE TIMES his birth weight!
And tall! And mobile!
He's still my sweet lil' guy, though.
Of course, I figure he'll be my sweet lil' guy when he's thirty, so there is that . . .

Hi Sunny! ILU! ♥

OMG, I love the look on his face in the King Kong photo!

I KNOW! Like 10% guilt (Busted!), 90% defiance (what are ya gonna do about it?)

Hysterical. I just can't stop laughing, whenever I see that picture.


We were talking about how much we MISS YOU at the Smallville party. Illinois is not the same without you. =(

He's HUUUUUUGGGGEEEE! No wonder you call him King Kong. He's like a whole different kid. You sure he wasn't switched somewhere along the line? ;)

Almost 25 pounds! Amazing! And I would totally think he was switched, but I see him ALL THE TIME and it was a gradual embiggening (gradual, but non-stop).

It's amazing how amazing he is. And still so snuggley!

Little Babies (and not so little ones) are the best (as you know. =D)
