Signs Lucas might be a toddler

1. When he pitches a fit, he arches his back so suddenly that he almost launches himself from my arms.

2. "Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah!"

3. Clothes size: 18 months.

4. Hobby 1: chasing The Liability from room to room. (Poor doggie!)

5. Hobby 2: opening library books and ripping the "date due" tags out of them. (My new hobby: taping "date due" tags back into library books.)

6. He's taller than the kitchen table, my desk, and the bathroom sink. Seriously. Is that freakishly tall for a kid who's not even a year old? 'Cause it's freaking me out that he can just about reach up and type on my laptop while standing on the floor. Have I mentioned that's just freaky?

I suspect he's been snorting Miracle-Gro for babies.

7. He's a little Sir Edmund Hillary. We turn our backs and he's sitting atop a random piece of furniture. His favorite spots: the couch endtables. We can't keep anything on them anymore. And it's pretty clear his next goal is to use one of the tables to mount an attack on a neighboring bookshelf.


a. Sleeping through the night? Not so much. It's only 10:30, and he's woken up three times since 8:45.

b. Actual toddling? Not yet.

c. The slightest wisp of interest in walking? None at all.

Definitely time to start bolting bookcases to the wall. Or maybe people in earthquake country do this as a matter of course?
