"Atticus says it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

I'm proud to announce that any of you Danish residents out there can now legally name your child (or yourself, for that matter) the fine name of Atticus. As of last week, we've made a little Danish history by getting that name on the books of the ol' Ministry of Names for Sir You Know Who, who has now officially added that to his collection of wonderful middle names. Yippee!!!

And as it's been embarrassingly long, here's the latest on the tyke: TWO teeth, bottom middle. (I am THRILLED that breast-feeding is a thing of the past.) They are SHARP, and dude has STRONG jaws. Put your finger in his mouth at your own risk. He's probably a few weeks away from crawling (yikes), and he spends quite a bit of time these days turning himself in circles on the ground. Sleep is still something of a far-away fantasy as he strongly requests bottles at around 2am, or 3am. Or 4am or later. Or sometimes all of the above. Also, he has very recently discovered the joys of random spine-jangling screaming. It's quite a treat. Still, he's quite a guy, so jolly and happy, and he's got the most expressive eyebrows ever.

Pureed peas? Yeah, um, not so much, Mommy.

What a cute little one! And yeah, I'd have the same face if someone shoved pureed peas in my mouth!

Congratulations on winning this battle on behalf of Atticuses everywhere, little WAKI. Your eyebrows are SO dang cute!

Wow, he's so cute! I need to read the back posts to catch up. Mine is rolling around like crazy, and about a minute from crawling (she lifts up into a crawling position, and rocks back and forth, but doesn't normally move anywhere yet)...I suppose this means it's time to babyproof the house?
