Sean’s Artic Adventure

Here a few additional pictures from the ice storm we had a couple of weeks ago. Sean and I played outside for a bit - this was Sean's first time seeing anything but sun or rain. I wish it had been snow, but ice will do. He marched all over the yard stomping on iced-over weeds to hear them crack and buckle under his feet. All of his outdoor toys fascinated him again, now that they were encased in ice an inch thick. It was all I could do to keep him from climbing into his toy car and freezing his toosh.

Ice Storm

Texas winters are usually fairly boring - they are just the slightly chilly period between hot seasons. But this winter we got a fairly nasty ice storm. Some of the plants in our yard had up to inch-thick ice on them. I've been stuck working from home for the last two days, and am still not sure if things will melt enough for me to go in tomorrow. I took Sean outside to play on the ice this morning. From in the house, I don't think that he had even noticed that anything interesting has been going on for the last couple of days. But once I got him outside, he had a blast. He kept slipping and sliding as he walked, he checked out all of his outdoor toys, picked up big chunks of ice to look them over more carefully - I had a ton of fun just watching him. When he wasn't saying "wow!", he was giving a big, silly, exagerated "brrrrr!".

The Artist at Work

Sean just got a very special birthday present from the Pages. He is loving it. He spent about half an hour chanting the names of each of the colors he could see on it, and drew lots of squiggles, spirals, squares, and circles. He was so involved with his new easel that I could only get him to actually look at the camera for a single picture. The reason he is making such a funny face is because he was in the process of saying "cheese!".

Tummy Time!

Check out who is starting to like tummy time! She can hold her head up for minutes at a time before she needs a break. She still can't stand more that ten minutes or so of sustained time on her belly, but it's a start!

Rolling Over

Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of this momentous event - but Carter rolled over for the first time this past Saturday. My mom was on the phone with me when she did it. She has done it several more times since then, just to prove it wasn't a fluke. We're so proud of her! I will try to get some pics or video soon.

Cat and Mouse Armor

I've found another interesting sculptor online. Jeff de Boer creates (among other things) suits of armor for cats and mice. The level of detail in these pieces is amazing. The images speak for themselves - check them out!

42 Words of Wisdom: #08

"It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too."

- Douglas Adams

I don't have much to say about this one, other than that I wholeheartedly agree with it.
