In case you weren’t aware of it, there is a lot of fun (and insanity!) to be had here, here and here.  If I didn’t have a baby, you now know what I’d be doing during the long days in Yankeeland.

You know what else Pru likes? Chewing on things that aren’t food. Not just pacifiers, or her fingers, but books or the TV remote. Or the mail:

Don't worry, it's just junk mail.

Let’s just hope this doesn’t lead to a lifetime of eating soil.

As my long-suffering parents can attest, I was a huge McLaughlin Group fan as a kid.  Huge.  On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 indicating a level of enthusiasm equal to what the average Hillary Clinton voter has for her candidacy and 10 indicating full-blown fainting Bobby Soxer swooning, I was a 9.  We now know this is a hereditary trait because Prudence spent all afternoon yesterday entranced by the undeniable genius of this cartoon.

Bad napper no more!

As the blog may or may not have led you to believe, our Sweet Pea is not the world’s greatest capitalizer on the opportunity for naps. Up until today she just wouldn’t sleep during the day unless someone was holding her, preferably while they were standing upright. This was never the ideal situation, of course, but her parents were pretty indulgent because
a) she’s a cutie
b) they like not hearing their daughter scream.

Today, Angus’s paternity leave ended and Pru celebrated by taking a proper nap. Sure it wasn’t in her bed, but was a start. Mother is going to say a few prayers of thanksgiving now.
