10 Months Old Today

And if you're wondering why there's a lack of baby photos (or content in general) on this blog, and a lack from the female half in particular well...

Mini-Chris is now mobile. He figured out the whole crawling thing and now he picks his own destinations... At speed.

He also has no fear response to speak of, a naturally high curiosity level, and enough intelligence to get himself in trouble.

He also adores power cables and has left some very recognizable teeth marks in Daddy's laptop cable.

He sleeps (maybe) 10 hours a day total. He's also sprouting teeth (usually in pairs) and has massive growing pains because he's now 33" tall.

He's a big, active, trouble-making, smiling, happy baby boy who somehow survives on 10 hours of sleep a day.

He's also a master at bending the laws of physics and the space-time continuum. There are days I want to call him Jack-Jack.

His existence, however, does not erase the need for food, clean clothes, or various other realities of life for the rest of the family, nor does it erase my need for sleep.

So content is kind of the last thing on my mind, way lower than keeping the kidlet from killing himself with his own curiosity.

There will be video proof of the above sometime this century, as soon as I get some actual sleep.

(And lest anyone think I'm letting Chris off the hook for his portion of kidlet duties, Chris has been handling this thing called work and giving me sanity time .)
