update for the heck of it.
actually I am just posting here in case Blogger has a "you were idle for x days so we will kill your weblog". I don't want to lose my history.

Archer has progressed from "ah-ah" (see previous post) to genuine "uh-oh"s. It is his first word!!!
What do I mean by "first word"? He says Da Da and Ma Ma, but he does not really associate meaning with them, he just says them. When he drops something, he says "uh-oh". He associates the word with the function. It has meaning to him.
Archer is walking! He takes multiple steps in succession before sitting down or hanging on to something. He made it halfway across the deck (the short way, not the long way) last night.

wading into shark-infested waters
last night - the maiden voyage of the baby pool. the water was too cold for an extended dip (stupid parents!), but Archer enjoyed playing with the pool toys and splashing around. he dropped the pool toys, we said, "uh-oh" and he said, "ah-ah" with the same cadence. He was walking around a little bit on the deck near the pool - he is still unsteady on his feet, but he is getting better at walking every day. step by step, baby steps. after dinner he was playing with his toys, and he has one toy in which you move different levers and push buttons and characters pop up and sing when you do it right. previously he had gotten the push button thing down, but had never done anything with the levers. last night he twisted one of the levers! at first we thought it was a fluke, but then he did it over and over .... he is learning so much! baby genius!

when we sleep we dream of angels
my guardian angel is Lucifer. he sits outside my window as I sleep and rolls red and black d10 while figuring out what to do with my soul. his long fingernails scrape the sill as he scoops up the dice again. I think he wants to come in, but he can't enter the house unless he is invited, and I am forbidden to invite evil into my heart. his dark eyes glitter as he peers through the curtains, seeing me, knowing me, adding me to his infernal balance sheet. I'm glad he is there ... after all, every girl needs a guardian angel.

I clicked on one of the "most recently updated" blogs listed on blogger's main page. It was a web log "written" by two EverCrack characters. what has the world come to? of course, as someone who wrote a journal as her PC from a LARP, I guess I have little to be shocked about.

there is no good tv on, so I am doing a lot more reading. this is a good thing. now that the weather has returned to abnormal (hey, it's not raining in Delaware! it's unprecipitated joy!) I have restarted my 6 AM walks. today I walked back in the secret passage of our neighborhood and got my new sneakers muddy. ick. what is odd is that the sprinting is getting easier. I have never been able to run for any distance without being unable to breathe or exhausted ... and I still can't run fast or far, but I can run. "can you run? I think not. I think not." -- the cat in Watership Down
Jason and I had a deal that one of us would get Harry Potter first and the other would get A Feast For Crows first. I got to choose, and I chose AFFC of course. J is a slow reader, and I couldn't bear the agony of waiting for him to finish the book I am dying to read. So, now he has Harry Potter. Hurry up, damn it!

Out, Out, Damned Quiz
Which woman of Shakespeare are you? brought to you by Quizilla
I was hoping to be Viola from Twelfth Night, but she is probably not one of the options anyway. I wish I had the body to be a cross-dresser. I'm so ... female. Ich.

Archer took four consecutive steps yesterday. He is going to be the Terror of The Seas one day, the Dread Pirate Castle!!!
The Hulk. Okay, you have to see it if you are a comic book fan. You need to stanch the feeling of incompleteness, I get that. We did too. Bring a pillow. I am serious. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. The acting is good, except for a few moments. Jennifer Connelly is consistently good. the cinematography with the comic book split screen effects is cool. But the script ... why oh why did they go with that plodding script? YAWN. I have said it before, and I will say it again ... Make Mine DC!
