Good God, the most up to date photo I have is from February (there's a few more on the Camera but it needs new batteries). I should explain that it was summer & still quite hot -- and in my own house I get around shirtless when it's over 30 degrees C.

So apologies for the moobs...


My daughter has a great smile. She's a great kid (MOTT - Most Of The Time)

Yup, they're a lot of fun at that age. Not that they're not fun when they got older too but it's a different kind of fun. I miss the early kind of fun. There was no arguing.

As for you T, that's about the most member flesh I ever recall being posted on spork. Kudo's for pushing the limits. Just remember my rule: If it offends Bill, it's fine by me.

Alan - yeah, arguing. I'm hoping to 'see them on the other side' of puberty. :)

Huh? You didn't have my daughter.

She got her first tooth today (well, we noticed it for the first time anyhow).

Almost crawling too (atm scoots across the floor on her bum instead)

The funniest thing is when kids scoot to avoid crawling. It's just funny looking.

Scenes from a family (wedding) weekend:

Scene 1

Noah: (belches loudly)
Me: What do you say?
Noah (sighing): Dad, we're boys. We don't care about that. (Noah looks pointedly at the only woman in the room). Excuse me, Aunt Pang.

Scene 2, at the wedding reception, late

Noah (walks over to me, climbs into my lap, and puts his head on my shoulder): Dad, I'm tired. I want to go back to the house.
Me: Okay, Peanut. As soon as Uncle Paul and Aunt Pang finish their cake, we'll go.
(DJ puts on Beyoncé's "Single Ladies")
Noah (head up and eyes popped open): Dad, I wanna DANCE!

Me and my buddy:

My daughter would burp louder than my boys! :)

As well as other things. For one, she's MESSIER around the toilet. I'm not asking why? or how?, either.

Several years ago, when my nephew was about six, he burped loudly, and, when my sister said, "What do you say," he replied, "THAT's a good one." Of course, he'd learned that from her.

When I had a sigmoidoscopy (colonoscopy's little brother) done, no sedation is required. They fill you up with a lot of air. I related to a male coworker that afterwards I could pass gas in almost a minute's long stream.

A few days later he tells me I'm his son's new HERO! ;)

I laughed at that.

Anyone got good tips for presents etc for a 1 yr old's 1st birthday?

Try to keep them few and relatively low profile, she's going to get spoiled anyway but if you try and get it postponed a little bit she might be a happier child. I personally love wooden toys such as an animal on a leash that she can drag around, stuff like that.

There are these things called "bristle blox" that are big enough to be safe, make perfectly wonderful teething objects and kids actually do build stuff with em for years that are sort of my signature gift. Lots of happy parents and kids...

The bigger kits have "too small not to worry about" pieces but the the basic kit is perfect for a one year old:

Dr Seuss Books. The rhyme and rhythm and drawings are great even for a 1 yo and they'll still be fun (and appreciated) when she's 5+.
