A blog about a kid. I like her.

Blue and Orange Circles

Here's another cute one that was lurking in our archives at home. It was taken on February 27th, when Aletheia was 7 months and 24 Days old.

Tomorrow I drive to San Antonio, and hopefully will find a way to post new pictures from there.


Assorted Aletheia 079 APOD

I promise I have a good reason for the lack of updates this week: Aletheia flew away Wednesday.

Aletheia's Pawpaw (her great-grandfather) had surgery Wednesday morning to install a pacemaker and defibrillator, and the Other Parent decided to fly out to help during the recovery period. This was Aletheia's second flight, and she did very well--contentedly looking out the window during the first half, sleeping through the long descent and landing. I'm told she entertained the flight attendants and about three rows around her with her patented trilling noise. ("What's that sound?" "I think it's the baby two rows ahead of us!")

The past few days have felt a little weird--it's the first time I've been home without Aletheia around. It's strange having no one else around here. I know I used to live alone, and it doesn't feel like all that long ago, but I don't remember it feeling like this. I thought I would like the alone time more than I do. Guess I miss the kid. And, um, the Other Parent, of course.

This is an unused pic from the archives, taken April 1st, when Aletheia was not quite nine months old. By the way, for those keeping score at home, the current tooth count is three, all in a row on the bottom.

First Time in the Pool

The Other Parent recently heard about a "Mommy and Me" class at the local pool, and today was Aletheia's first time in the water. She had a great time. Lots of laughs, and she was submerged several times without getting upset. More fun new experiences.

Nine Months Old

20070403 Aletheia 021 APOD

This is a big day for Aletheia. Nine months old! She's been a external baby as long as she was an internal baby.

And this is an important picture. At first it looks just like any other picture of a smiling baby girl, but this is the very first picture that shows her brand new first tooth!

Video: Almost Crawling

Kind of overdosing on videos this week, but she keeps doing such interesting new things. Crawling can't be far away. In the meantime, she's really building up her biceps.
