We Survived!

The Great Plague of 2013 has passed from this household, leaving only a slight case of sniffles in its wake and I am happy to say that we have all survived its malicious and cruel grasp. It was a close call but we are all strong (like bear) and made it through the other side.

Day One.
So now it's 10 months and 3 days after Day One (shown to the left, here), and we've made it through the baby having two colds, daddy having two surgeries, and mommy leaving the baby alone with daddy for a week. We've made it through snow storms and hot weather, travel to exotic locations and flying over 20,000 feet up in the air.

We've made it ten months, and I wasn't even sure I'd make it ten minutes as a dad.

She's an amazing kid and astounds me every day with new developments.

We're in for a whole heap of trouble.
Speaking of new developments, this picture to the right, here, shows the little one after she pulled herself up on top of the box from a crawling position.

We have full-on crawling now, with the ability to pull herself into a standing position. When she gets something like this box she uses it to scoot around as though it's the weirdest-shaped walker in existence.

It's awesome but it's also terrifying. I keep telling her "Good job! Now knock it off!" She can't be mobile yet! It's too early!

This also means that we've lowered her bed from only being halfway down (so that it's easier to pick her up) to being all the way down. With her being able to stand up, I know we're just a short time away from finding her trying to climb out of her crib! She already tries to climb the couch, the boxes, the chair, daddy, and the cats!

Things here are going well. We're going to have a friend over for a few days and hopefully we'll all get to go on some baby-fun adventure times! In the meantime, I'm going to be working furiously to baby-proof the house.

Bubble wrap should do the trick, right?

Did you think I was asleep?
