Daddy Duty

Sleep, Eat, Diaper Change. Repeat.

The Golden Period continued…

Parenting is going great. I mean really great. From feeding to sleeping to playing, it’s all going great. I’m sure this usually marks the time when most parents decide that they can handle a 2nd one. This isn’t an announcement, so don’t get get excited. Knowing that that’s what I think happens, Claire and I are still just enjoying the moment.

We had the pleasure of hanging with my cousin’s daughter this past weekend in LA who is just a little older than 1. We played with her for a couple of hours and were amazed at her walking and talking abilities.  She was even saying “JJ” to our amazement and joy! We know there’s a lot to look forward to, but it’s hard to get over the fact how tiring it was watching the 1 year old who was constantly on the move and exploring every nook and cranny. Yikes, not looking forward to it, but it should give us a lot of exercise chasing the little guy.

Another recent highlight is JJ is “sort of” crawling.  He goes backwards somewhat decently now. We’ve got to work on the whole forward movement, but it’s funny because I’ll find him under the bed and couch sometimes now as he backwards crawls his way under them. He’ll also grab near anything.  Although we don’t see any teeth yet, he seems to be teething or on the verge of teething with his constant biting of things.

We’ve got a doctor’s appointment in a couple of days so we’ll get the official growth report shortly. I’m still amazed by the number of people asking his sex when he’s wearing blue and “masculine” things from head to toe. Are you serious people?
