The Fast and the Curious

Buster was pretty amenable yesterday afternoon, and I caught a few photos of him in the natural light. The first images captured the mess in our room, so I moved him to a more neutral backdrop in front of the bedroom doors.

That didn't last long. How'd he get the door open without being able to reach the doorknob?

By pulling on the door stopper. Time to add that to the child-proofing list.

C'mon, Mommy. Let's go!

And he's off.

Hey, come back here! Note how all lower bookshelves are waiting empty until the micro dude learns not to chew on everything within reach.

Captured, but still happy.

A few weeks ago, I finally got around to pulling out What to Expect the First Year, the sequel to the notorious pregnancy guide, “What to FEAR When You’re Expecting” – I mean, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I flipped to the chapter appropriate to Buster’s age – eleven months - and shamefully realized that the last time I opened the book was before he was born. To see how we measured up compared to the book, wander by the Silicon Valley Moms Blog.

Go Buster go!

I lived and died by my baby book with my first, but I've barely cracked it open this time around. I think that's usually the way it works out, no time plus less maternal worry.
