The Duckling
Well, it's been a couple of interesting weeks! Little man hit the 2 week mark today and quickly taught dad that "it's not like riding a bike". (Note, my daughter is 8 - will be 9 in February so it's been awhile!). 

Granted: holding, bathing, feeding, burping, and ignoring the crying came back like a pro. No issues there. But he was a nocturnal spirit animal of some ferocious type in his last go around, and he's turning his first shift dad into an extra from the walking dead.

Here he is just a short time ago ready to go help me on the smoker for the next 17 hours:

WAIT - this is about the boy. Sorry!  minusculebeercheers

When mom is resting at night we have fashion shows, I break out all the clothes that caused me to get the stink eye from some of the more fashionable people in the household:

We watch movies together every night. I took two weeks of vacation from work and me and Ducky Jr. Watched 22 movies start to finish! Here he is on the night we watched Scarface:

He fell asleep, so I didn't have to cover his eyes much  tinylaughing 

Every now and then he does day drinking, he'll pound down a 40 of his single malt milk and pass out (MLs that is)  tinycool

All in all, he's doing great. Mom is as well. She's back to "can actually chase me down" stage so I need to be more careful of what I say around her again tinylaughing tinylaughing I've had free reign of zingers in my house for months now!

She's teaching him the bad words in spanish, I'm teaching him the bad words in english and spanglish. 

I do have a SUPER jealous 8-yr old that I've been trying to pay very close attention to. She's a bit sensitive about not being the "baby" any longer.

Oh, and I started filling out his baby book. Funny story: When Maya was born (my 1st) I was all on board with all the little momentous stuff so we bought a baby book. Page 1: "important current events from 2012". At the time, I was like "well, outside of that little skirmish in Syria, not really much happening". That "skirmish", in hindsight, turned out a bit more than "little". 

Ducky Jr's 1st page? "Current Events from 2020":

Enjoy the new addition while you can. One day you'll wake up and he'll be moving out to face the world on his own.
Little Foot hit 7 Months today, and he has almost all of dad's boxes checked!

He still wins the fashion award on a weekly basis  minusculeclap

We nicknamed him Little Foot because of his twig & grass habit:  smallcrackingup

Definitely in "kid proof the house" mode lately. 

Happy 7-Months! Exhausting 7-Months! But I wouldn't trade it for the world.
