I got a present, I got a present! Since my photography skills are up to their usual level of crappiness today, you might head over to Grannypurl to see just how cool and groovy these socks are:
They're soft, they're bright and cheerful, they're extremely well made, AND THEY FIT! They fit like a glove! A pair of gloves...
The package included a keychain, which features a teeny tiny matching sock, and a book for Junior which features a duck and a "Press here to hear the duck quack" button. It took him all of three seconds to master this particular skill, so the book went over very well.
Hm? Why is there only one sock in the picture? I was wearing the other one. Right now, I'm wearing both of them. My feet are thrilled. Thank you!!
Other good news this week? Little Himself said his first word other than "Mama" or "Dada". Surprisingly enough, it wasn't "guitar" or "coffee". He was sitting on the rug and spied his pacifier. He crawled over and snatched it up with the triumphant cry of "Inky!"
"Yes, Honey. That's your binky. Very good!"
A big smile in return.
Now, unfortunately, our little man is having health issues. The dreaded Upper Respiratory Infection, which has led to something really rotten: a double ear infection. He's fairly cheerful when we can distract him, but every now and then he remembers, "Hey, my ears HURT! This sucks!" Luckily for Junior, we have a large stash of blankies and TWO available laps on which to cuddle.
