Baby A is nearly 4 months old and he weighs approximately 20 pounds (there is a metric equivalent, although I have never gotten the hang of it. I think he weighs 35 kilometres). He is large.

He is also becoming more human, and less protoplasmic, every 1/2 hour. He has gone from the involuntary-seeming Sproing! of greeting to laughing to following his mum around with his gaze to requiring involvement in activities with the family. He enjoys hanging around with his big sister. It's a real laugh.

Of course, as he sleeps in our room, and is up a couple of times each night, I am not always laughing.

Sister E is also a scream, usually in a positive manner, but she is 2. That she loves her brother is evident. Tonight she confirmed her love for Barry Bear and Fritz the sure-footed and dependable pony.

As an aside Mo and I are feeling super-extra relaxed right now. Today we committed to spend slightly over a gazillion pengoes today. We paid deposits on a house and on a van. If the house deal doesn't work out we can live in the van. If the van doesn't work out then I guess we're buggered. I will add, not that it matters anymore, we never intended to become van people. I swear it.

P-man out.

Well, becoming van people is kind of like becoming a smoker, isn't it? I mean no one starts out saying "God, I'd love for this to become something I can't live without and am daily ashamed of! Woo hoo!"

But those vans with their wily, siren-like call...the ease of access to car seats. The sense of safety. The special features, like the "open the door for you" thingy and the "remove seats for storage" thingy. It's the industry's fault--they lure us in!

Maybe a clss-action lawsuit?

First of all, 20 pounds?! My almost-19 month old is barely 23lbs. You both must have huge biceps by now.

Second, a house! And a van! Congratulations!

Where is it asks CC? Well, glad you asked. Our new front door is approximately 16 feet from our old front door. Were buying our neighbours' house. I am not even packing!

And, Baby A. slept 9:15 to 4:15 -- p-man is such a whiner!

Here's hoping the luck holds
