So Nolan is crawling. He's been crawling for about a week now. He's not very fast. Or quiet. But he's getting into things and it's very fun to watch him move around. I think he'll skip the hands and knees crawling and go straight to walking soon. The kid is nuts! And tons of fun!

But the eating is getting better. Unfortunately he's eating bananas (slippery little suckers) and puffs (sticky little suckers). Occasionally he'll get the food into his mouth and has finally figured out what to do with it when it gets into his mouth. But here is video from last week when he was still learning that...

It's interesting-because he doesn't go to daycare his exposure to kids and germs is much more limited. But when you factor in that EVERYTHING (shoes, swings, instruments at music class, arms of chairs) goes in his mouth, he certainly has significant exposure. People say all babies put things in their mouths. I look around at other babies and they don't mouth things as much as Nolan does. It's crazy. But he is not into the pacifier (I tried it again last night).

One of the evil men on trial was found guilty of 16 of the 17 charges, it was determined he did not 'light' the fire. We will learn in weeks if he will be sentenced to death or life in prison. I don't know how I feel about any of this (actually I do but don't want to start a political debate about it) but I hope Dr Petit feels some sort of acceptance- is that the right word? Validation, Justice, Relief?
And while this is incredibly selfish and quite insensitive to say, I hope this story goes away and I don't have to think about it again. It is so terrifying it's too hard to comprehend.

This makes me think of the Chocolate Friends... no more blah blah blah...

A few things to point out to make this funnier...
1- notice the puddle of drool under his chin
2- notice he is jumping... this is not a jumper toy.
3- pay close attention to the sounds he makes at the very end. This is his new sound. It is hilarious. He does it a lot.

The little monster is still not crawling, just doing the worm a bit. The rugburn on his face is getting worse so we're trying to treat that which means his face is shiny and goopy.
Here's Nolan getting a cooking lesson.

When Dave got up to move closer to Clifford the Big Red Dog Nolan started panicking even more and tried to crawl out of Dave's arms. So Dave moved away from Clifford and Nolan settled back down again. I picked Clifford up and petted him and brought him closer and Nolan panicked again. Very Interesting.
Fast-forward to yesterday at a different library there was a Clifford the Big Red Dog puppet. He played with it for a short time before he suddenly got panicky again and tried to get away from the puppet. I tried to get him to realize there was nothing to be afraid of but he was too scared.
Then today at the original frightful location Nolan spied Clifford again and acted agitated but not as panicky. Clifford was about 20 feet away on a shelf in the corner. Nolan was staring at him and watching him closely and wasn't enjoying the class or the songs. So I moved Clifford from sight and Nolan was fine again. We were playing with other toys after class when the instructor started cleaning up and apparently put Clifford back on the shelf where he belonged when Nolan stopped what he was doing and just stared over at the corner again, very cautious. I didn't realize what was going on and wondered what Nolan was staring at until I realized what the instructor did.
I don't know if it's the color red or the big eyes but there is totally something about Clifford that Nolan does NOT like. So I think we'll need to get a book about Clifford to see if we can help Nolan get over this fear. Poor little weirdo.
Whoops- I forgot about Nolan's FIRST fear. I blogged about it several months ago. Five points goes to the first person who writes what it was in the comments section.
