helloooooo (world)

It’s official. Sid’s first word is “hello.” With the “h,” even. We’ve been hearing attempts at it for a while now, (grrlah!) but she’s finally got it down, and has said it 3 times in the last 12 hours. And in context (mostly to inanimate objects, but at least on their arrival). Now we just have to catch it on camera….

Disclaimer: she also does say “ma!” for just about everything, and “dadadadada” sometimes when I repeat “daddy” to her often often enough, but they’re kind more all-purpose, and not said correctly, so we’re sticking with hello.

There’s a new photoset on flickr (daddy says he never puts his own stuff on flickr any more!) of Sid’s taking of West Cork by storm… And it suits, given the weather. Was a lovely weekend, if not busy, and Sid made some great new friends. Here’re a few (click for more) to celebrate her 11-month birthday today.

And on this day, I have 8 teeth (2 more coming), I can crawl like a pro (and pick myself up and put myself down, and scale the rails), I know heaps of verbs when I hear them (dance! clap! fetch! poop!) - but am still working on saying my first “official” word - and I am starting to show both my parents’ willful nature….

Daddy took this pretty photo of me and mommy in the park. I match the apple blossoms! Every day should be like this. Except my grandparents and aunties should all be here, too… Miss you already!

Mommy and Daddy took me to the park, so that the latter could do his scanny art thang. Obviously, I drew way more attention, what with my new found mobility.

The aztecs seem an interesting case study. I wonder at their all-day games, used to worship the sun, and how they might tie into present-day basketball-as-ritual.

And also, I danced. Heaps. I rocked the British Museum like no other. Boo to the heck yah!

Sometimes, these grandparents things can be useful. For food, presents, learning to walk and the like.
