No Power in the 'Verse Can Stop Me


Within a period of 72 hours, Inara went from crawling to standing.

Jayne and I are so screwed.

. . . and when she starts really talking -- you'll want to go back to the "lying there looking darling" stage. Isn't she great!

Congratulations, Chez! Enjoy having Inara run tiny little baby circles around you!

Amanda said...

Yup... wait until running/climbing starts happening. My mum says she feels for monkey handlers with a dead straight face.

What an adorable picture!

Ah yes, now the fun really begins - like the loud thumps at 6 a.m. when you tear into her room partly awake only to see how proud she is that she managed to climb out of her crib. Or when you walk into the other room to put something away and come back to a huge pile of (movies, magazines, newspapers, take your pick) on the floor.

@Amanda - That analogy is great!

And you thought you weren't sleeping before this...

Well, there's your cardiovascular workout routine right there in one small package. If you want to keep up your work output, I hope you've started looking into good daycare places already.

Now that she's standing you better lower her mattress or the next thump you hear is when she discovers she can flip herself over the top of the rail. Good luck!

It's like in those tv shows where they fast forward between seasons and get a different baby actor.

My brother could barely walk on his own when he climbed up the dresser and down the stairs. We were running after him for many, many years after that.

Wtg Inara, good luck with that guys.

Time to drop the mattress in her crib down a level or two. Babies are so top-heavy, they fall out by leaning over.

Watch out, Chez - my nephew went pretty fast from 'standing up in cot' to 'taking a header on to bedroom floor'!
K is right, lower the mattress.

I had a fun Sunday watching my 16-month-old niece Lottie toddling around. Well, it was fun when it wasn't heartstopping (I think she learned a new word or two when I panicked at her proximity to the gas fire).
Yep, you're SO in for it.... ;-)

Hmmm, I thought, from previous pixxes, that your kid looked uppity!

And if she gets headaches as a youngen it will be because either her brain is so big and pressing on her cranium, or her parents are high strung. I am sure it will be the former.

you were screwed when she started to crawl. pulling up to standing just means you have to childproof the bookcases NOW [cleat to walls] instead of next week.

wait til she climbs out of the crib!
