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.
Thanks for taking some time to update on us on what to expect.
TEETH!! Won't be long until he is eating real lentils. :)
Love you all bunches,
