About the Performer

So, where to begin?  Well, it's hard to summarize one's child in a couple of sentences, especially since we're still learning who he really is.  So for now, I'll stick with the basics.  He was born April 25th, 2007... 8 lbs., 11.5 oz, 21.5 inches long.  Now, nearing his first birthday, he is a happy, engaging little boy.  He started to crawl on New Year's Eve, when he was 8 months old.  He just started walking a few weeks ago, right after he turned 11 months.  He tests out his ability to take steps often, but he knows a surefire thing, and resorts to crawling when he really needs to get movin'.   For now at least.  He's quite a babbler, spouting a variety of noises - from a "dodel" ("DOH-dlll, DOH-dll, DOH-dll") which comes out when he's contentedly engrossed in something ... to a sound he reserves for animals, which sounds like the canned baby "aaaEEEyah" that you hear on all the commercials.  His sounds much cuter in real life, though.  (And so far, only cats, dogs, fish, and the occasional bird warrant this response).  As of late he's adopted a monster growl which is really interesting.  It would be neat if I could figure out how to post sound clips on this blog for your entertainment.  I'll look into it.
