Crawling Update

I think it was about 2 months ago that I reported that EGB was on the verge of crawling. Due to some old war injuries, EGB took a bit longer than expected to get the crawling thing down. I'd say that now she's got the mobile skills of a drunk puppy.

At first, it appeared that all she wanted to do was crawl to a table or couch and pull herself up AKA skip crawling and go straight to walking. Now it appears she's more interested in pulling herself up and taking a bite out of the table or couch. Which leads me to believe that she has no interest in walking, but that maybe we need to feed her wood and couch cushions instead of laboring over concocting steamed peas and blueberry pear mixtures.

EGB still emulates her dog-relative Calvin and seems to have fostered a healthy sense of competition with him. The other day I overheard a conversation between the two of them:

"Ahhhh! Dah duh bah buh" (Yo, stinky fur biscuit! Your breath smells like New Jersey), said EGB.

"Woof woof haaaa" (Hey you little bald meat cake! Your diapers smell like rotten broccoli and molded cheese. You think you're all special with mom and dad. Ever since you came around here, I got fat, I get yelled at, and nobody has pet me since 2008.), said Calvin.

"Pthhhhhh! Arraah. Da Da." (My bad. I don't speak dumb dog. Whatchu say fat dog cake?! ), said EGB.

"Wooooooooof!!!" (You gonna play like that? I'm gonna gnaw on your ear!"), said Calvin

"Waaaah Whata Tang!" (You do that and I'll put your tail in the microwave and sentence you to the basement.), said EGB.

"Nwoof Nwoof" (Nooo not the basement!! Ok, I'm sorry. I didn't mean what I said about your diaper. They actually smell kinda good. Friends?", said Calvin.

"Da ma ta da da" (Ok, let's hug it out dog. I'll knock over the garbage and you shred it.), said EGB.

That's when I walked in to unfoil their plot to destroy the kitchen. It's good to see that EGB has such strong diplomatic skills. Maybe she'll be the next Secretary of State.

I'd come over to where you are, but it's like 10 feet away.

Ahhhhh. I love the taste of varnish in the morning.

Whats up?
No, I'm not thirsty. I just drool. A lot. Like a camel.
Goodnight baby wonderful(s). They're both wonderful.
