Ten Months. For Real, Though.
Desmond-y Facts:

  • Every evening. after his bath D enjoys what we call 'nekkid monkey hinie jumping time' before we wrestle him into a diaper and pajamas, and hope like hell he doesn't pee on our bed.
  • We are days, if not hours from watching baby D take his first steps.
  • Eight teeth, four above, four below.
  • Strawberries are a new favorite.
  • Dinnertime almost always includes music, and Harry Belafonte makes noodles taste better.
  • Since the weather has been so mild we try to take a daily trip to the park for a ride on the swings- a smile and giggle filled ride that is as much fun for me as it is for D.
  • Lots of kids have nicknames, and the one that seems to have stuck is 'Baby Desmond'.  I call him this, Rob call him this, the sitter, the little boys at daycare, and I have a vision that one day, when D is six-foot-five and 225 pounds we will still be calling him 'Baby Desmond'; the perfect name for a dude that large. BD for short.
