those hard cookie things

Diederick experienced the wonderfully chewy-ness of zweiback cookies today. I think in the end he melted it to death with all of his slobber! Oh boy did he ever have fun :P He’d even laugh at the impossibility of chewing through the silly thing. He’d take the cookie out of his mouth, look at it then at me and laugh. Dude!

Then he’d put it back in his mouth, slobber for 15, 20 minutes. In the end he took a whole hour to finish up.

Thankfully that stuff cleans off easily :)

Btw, what happened to my Flickr??

I’ve just added my eleven year old brother Seth’s blog to my Blogroll. Do check it out! He’s writing a really cool story, not to be missed!
He just started a few days ago, I hope he keeps it up! :D

(What’s with the blog title though??)

April Showers

Deeder after our afternoon walk today:

We’ve had a lot of rain these past two days, it’s been enough to bring life to the daffodils and color up the grass a little.

That wasn’t supposed to happen

Today he pulled himself up successfully for the first time ever. Within the last week or so he’s been getting from his belly to sitting, and of course getting into stuff that’s within reach of his baby on belly stance. He was reaching for something in that shelf thing on wheels that I have (it’s been in some of my Deeder pictures) then I guess he saw something on the above shelf and stood up.

See that TV behind him in the picture? He nearly fell backward off the couch which would have caused him to hit his head on the corner of the table it’s sitting on!! No, the tv’s not there to stay (heh) it’s on it’s way up to the attic, it hasn’t been able to master the stairs yet!

Oh and this afternoon while I was peacefully checking my email and eating a bagel I heard a loud thumb/bang sound from upstairs. EEK! What now? I found Deeder with the side of his face smooshed on the floor with the gate over him! He started to cry when he saw me. And this is after he bit his hand at lunch. So he has a swollen thumb and the side of his face is bruised.

Another near disaster:
Sunday Deeder nearly got pulled down the driveway. Want to know the story behind that? Well, I went in the house, tied the dog to the stroller and the dog thought she’d take Deeder for a walk without me. Thankfully I’d put the breaks on! I’m dumb enough to tie a dog to the stroller, but not dumb enough to consider that it might roll aways. Deeder was hanging upside down in his stroller and not complaining at all. He was smiling at Heidi like it was all good. Maybe the closest that he’s gotten to her. Wish I’d had my camera on hand.

That’s the latest on Deeder Deeds. I’m going to have to watch out now that he’s standing up!

DDH

My in laws sent Deeder some DDH gear today!

When choosing Deeder’s name it was imperative to find a name that would give him the initials DDH as it is a family tradition, Darren and his dad Dale both have those initials
