Well, I made to the company party tonight just in time to have a beer and run out the door. I wanted to get home before J went to sleep. I made it with about 10 minutes to spare!

Ya know what I really hate? People (other parents) keep telling me that I’ll hate the next stage, what ever it may be, that J is about to enter. For example, I was told that I would hate it when she crawls. Ya know what? I fuckin’ love it! The funniest thing is when we put her down in floor in morning and she scampers off to the kitchen. If J makes it there before we have a chance to pickup the cat’s food, she puts it into hyper-drive. This kid’s never going to walk if she keeps crawling like this.

It gets funnier. When Meg or myself makes it into the kitchen after her, she jumps back from bowl. She knows it’s a “no”, but hey, she’s only 11 mos., so she’s going to push the envelope. I can’t wait for walking!
