Rolling off the sofa: Fun Game or Dangerous New Skill

This week brought several memorable events...

SNOW!! SNOW!! SNOW!! Down in the Atl we don't get much snow, in fact I feel like it has been several years since I've seen snow stick to the ground. We had TWO snow days this past week and it was really a lot of fun. Our little boy is too young to really play in it, at 5 months, but he watched it coming down and "cooed" at the white stuff falling in our yard. My husband enjoyed playing in it... he had a few good snowball fights for sure!

The other big deal for us came late one night as I was checking e-mail, I looked behind me because I could hear the baby laughing. My husband claims he did not "teach" him... but the baby was ROLLING OFF THE SOFA and into his (my husbands) arms. Laughing Laughing. And wanting to to do it again & again because it was just so funny!!

My freedom has ended. This is not a "fun game" for Mama. This means that she can no longer run to PeePee without the baby love being contained - - being safe - - always watching..... But I guess it was going to happen soon enough. I just wasn't ready! It happens fast, huh?!!

My daughter's new trick is just as troubling. She has learned that she can screech...very loudly for long periods of time. She spent all day Sunday screeching, just as happy as can be.

Looks like I need to go buy more Advil....

The husband thinks he's funny-- creating games and what not! That sounds like it is SO cute!!
