A Delicious Snack

Aven has recently discovered how delicious her feet are.
Our pediatrician said that she's ahead of schedule on this developmental milestone. Hello Harvard!

My friend Amber recently lent us her son's bouncer, which Aven is quickly learning to love and which takes up almost as much space as our dining room table. We may get to eat an entire meal without interruption sometime in the near future.

We Missed It

Aven in the front carrier on a recent trip to Flaming Gorge

We did not have a very good night last night. Aven woke up every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The only thing we could do to get her back to sleep was to bring her into our bed. Not something I want to get in the habit of doing, but when you have to wake up at 5 am to go to work you'll do just about anything to get back to sleep.

When I got up I looked up 'sleep problems in four month old babies' online and read all about 'sleep regression'. I guess when babies are working on a developmental milestone their little bodies and brains are working so hard that their sleep patterns are often disturbed. The article also mentioned that the sleep disturbances can go on for a few days all the way up to several weeks. Great.

So, when I picked her up at daycare her super-sweet caregiver, Robin, asked me if she had done any rolling over yet. She hasn't even hinted at rolling over so I was surprised by this question. Robin told me that Aven rolled over twice today. Major developmental milestone achieved! It was very bitter sweet: She rolled over- yay! She rolled over and I missed it :( So, tonight she'll be spending a lot of time laying on a blanket in the middle of the living room while intently watch her and wait for my own magical rolling over moment.

Can we get some sleep now?

My Desktop at Work

I came in to work today after my nice long 4 day weekend and smiled as my computer booted up and showed my kick ass desktop. I love this desktop, The wall paper is from Jason Chan and the bar along the bottom of the screen is my cool custom task bar, it has all the programs I use on a regular bases shown as cool black icons that I can click on to open them up. Anyway my work desktop is something that makes me happy, and I wanted to share it with you.

Death Bat . . .

Just another reason I love my job. Sometimes I am more fond of these quirky projects than I am of really well done ones.
