G-Man went in for his 2 month checkup today. At 24.5 inches long, and 12 lbs 9 oz, he’s in the 95th percentile for his height and 90th percentile for his weight. To put it in layman’s terms, he’s a CHUNK. He’s currently sleeping off his vaccines in the Ergo (I just got it yesterday, and I love, love, love it), but I expect in a few hours he’ll wake up and be mad at the world.
The Chunky Monkey hams it up for the camera:
In other news, I went to get a pair of clean underwear out of the laundry basket this morning and saw a giant spider sitting on top of my panties. Thankfully, Josh woke up sick this morning and was planning on leaving later for work, so he was still at home to kill the offending creature. However, as it’s getting colder and wetter outside, and the bugs are discovering that it’s warm and cozy inside our house, this spider was just one member of a huge bug army that I’m convinced is out to get me. I’ve seen crickets in the basement, silverfish behind the microwave, and ants in the sunroom. GROSS. I’ve decided it’s dangerous to dig too deep into our house’s crooks and crevices, so I’m tabling all chores until the exterminator gets here tomorrow. But it’s a catch-22 since a messy house makes the bug problem worse. I think I may just sit on the couch and whimper.
Emmeline loves bugs. She thinks they’re all her friends. Here she is looking for “Bugga-Buggas” out in the yard. Sometimes I wonder if she’s really my child.
