Wait, overeating or overheating? Because I’d infinitely prefer the latter.
How do they expect this to work when we all take our bras OFF at the end of the day; i.e., before devouring that pint of ice cream?
I mean, think it through, people.
That thing where you can remember dreaming about someone you know but the details are hazy enough that you’re not sure if you should be embarrassed about it. Was it a sex dream or were you discussing architecture and aesthetics over herbal tea?
If you’ve ever wondered if reading P.G. Wodehouse would be everything you dreamed it could be, it is.
Last night Dan asked me what I was planning on writing for this week’s update and I half-jokingly told him that the entire update would be “Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, how the fuck long do teeth take to show the fuck up?” Because after a week and a half of swollen gums and pain remedies, S’s bottom teeth haven’t budged at all. I was under the impression that the time between visible signs of teeth coming up (not drooling or putting things in his mouth, but the gums and the faint outline of teeth) and the teeth actually coming up would be short, like a week max. But now I can’t see any evidence that they’re even there. Do baby teeth recede? Are they that much of a bastard thing?
I am an impatient person. It’s not fair that I get to complain about S’s teeth being slowpokes because he’s the one suffering through it, although it seems as though the pain has abated somewhat over the past couple days. And I know the answer to my Malcolm Tuckeresque question is “depends on the child,” which, can I tell you? Is one of the more maddening things you can tell a new parent, and it’s basically the one answer to everything. Just hair-pullingly, eye-crossingly crazy-making. Sometimes we want real, useful answers. “Depends” is like saying something is “fine.”
So this week S has been more or less the same as last week, and I’ve been more of a bundle of nerves and worry (teeth, weight, the usual) so everything’s felt a bit more raw. This week saw our first Thanksgiving as a family, and our first Hanukkah. S seems to enjoy watching the candles being lit. This week also saw my colossal NaNoWriMo failure, and I don’t care. I’m still writing every day to keep exercising that muscle but it’s a lot easier and more fun when I don’t have anything to write toward.
This was the week S learned how to whine, which is actually kind of nice because it makes it a little easier to distinguish what he needs from what he wants. (Mostly it is not nice. Mostly it is seriously irritating and disheartening to think that he figured out this particular noise so early.)
He’s also laughing a lot more, however, as though he knows he needs to balance out the whining. And he laughs at strange intervals, like when he’s playing on his own, looking up at the ceiling, like he just remembered a really funny joke (or maybe he just thought of a really funny joke and he can’t wait to tell us once he’s figured out the whole language thing). He has different laughs, too: there’s the deep belly laugh like when he’s being tickled or when we play peekaboo or sometimes when he’s playing with his food, he has a short little giggle that he does when he sees the cats, and he has a drier “a ha ha ha” laugh that seems to happen at random. Or maybe it’s not random. Maybe this is him telling us he wants to be entertained.
