I've hit a bit of a lull at work today, so this post is technically brought to you in part by taxpayer support. I've been intending to upload a video of Tobin's remarkable crawling skills and I've heard from a few sources that such a video would be appreciated. The three of us have taken turns being a little under the weather, but it is my intent to get a video posted this weekend. I even have a special treat planned . . .
That said, there is other fun news to share: Tobin is about to cut teeth. We noticed a light clinking sound the other night when letting Tobin drink from a "big-person glass." This could help explain some of the hilarious squinty faces he's been making lately--and maybe explain some of his recent reluctance to eat. Personally, I don't remember what it was like to cut teeth, but I can imagine that having bone break through previously smooth skin would be pretty painful. Because my brain does such things, I tried to imagine what it would feel like. The best I could come up with was the feeling of a nail cut just a little too close to the quick--not so close that it bled, but close enough that it hurts when I touch it or move certain ways. I asked Tobin to explain what it felt like and he said "Da da da ba buhhhhhhh. Unhh!"
I haven't been able to pick up his language despite honest effort on my part. Hopefully he has more luck learning my language so we can communicate more effectively.
