A new standard

Here's a shock, even after selling "fashions" at the Home Shopping Network for four years I'm still style impaired; especially where Emily's clothes are involved. I know there's a problem with the baby's outfit when the first question mom asks when she sees Emily is "You didn't leave the house today did you?"

Where do they all come from???

Feeding Emily Grace is like trying to feed Dr. Octopus; hands keep appearing from under the table grabbing everything in sight. There's a hand swatting the spoon, another rubbing the food into her eyes, there goes another grabbing the bowl. How did she get the napkin in her mouth? Where did the spoon go? The arms (all eight of them) are also a lot longer than you think, nothing is out of reach for Emily Grace.

What I want to know is?

Is it mean to feed the baby a whole jar of prunes when you know she's going to Grandma's for the afternoon?

What can you say?

What can you say about a little girl who follows you around the house on her hands and knees, complaining that you're moving too fast? The sign that she wants to be picked up is that she bumps against you with her head. Emily's actually standing on her own at 6 months, she doesn't know she's standing, she's just interested in getting the vacuum cleaner cord to her mouth; the fact that she's standing there doing it is of no importance to her.

She's a crawling, biting machine...

Mom went back to work just in time to leave me with a crawling, drooling, biting machine. Emily Grace has her first tooth and from all of the drool I'm sure the others can't be far behind. For 6 months old I'm constantly surprised by how fast she can crawl, turn your back for a second and she's under the table, look away and she's dragging the 5lb. bag of bird seed off the shelf, the only thing between Emily and taking a cat "nip" from the poor cat's tail is the sliding glass door.

different shades of pink...

Brad Pitts' representatives called and asked us to stop talking to Angelina Jolie's representatives; they also wanted to know if Emily Grace came in any other colors.

You know you have a cute baby when representatives from Angelina Jolie contact you three times about adopting your daughter.

Today is the first day of the rest of the week...

Today is my first day home all day as a stay-at-home dad with Emily. How am I supposed to get anything done? When Emily's awake, she's crawling all over the place gnawing on anything and everything she can reach. Best of all she will crawl through all of her toys to get to something she shouldn't have, i.e. shoes, electrical cords, the cat, microscopic bits of whatever the vacuum doesn't pick up. And when she finally falls asleep you can't do anything because she'll wake up and continue her quest for the best tasting furniture.... Love you honey.
