As of tonight at 11:31pm, Caleb is 7 months old. He’s growing up way too fast. I keep telling him to stop, but typical of a child, he won’t listen. The last few days he’s been sick with a nasty cold. It’s harder for him to sleep, eat, and breathe and he has a ugly cough. Does that stop him? Of course not. He has still picked up crawling. He now crawls and rolls his way to whatever he wants in out apartment and nothing is safe. See the video below for proof.
Also, his first word was “Tiggy.” While technically not a word, it is what we call his little Tigger toy. Sometimes it come out as “tsssiggy” or “iggyts” or just “iggy,” but his meaning is obvious. Especially since he is always looking at his toy and holding out his hands.
He’s taken to putting his arms out when he wants up now, too. It’s great that he’s finally able to communicate. It was heartbreaking, however, when I put him down for a nap he put his arms up for me to pick him up while he cried.
Anyways, tomorrow (read: in 8 hours… I really need to be in bed) I go to court for the accident where I totaled the Hyundai. I’m not fighting the ticket, just trying to defer it. If they allow me to defer it, I have a chance to keep it off my record. All I would need is one year of no tickets and it doesn’t show up on my record. Short of that, I hope that they will drop the amount, since, to my extensive (read: not-so) legal knowledge, it seems that the $550 is higher than allowed by law. Pray that it goes well.
EDIT: It went well. I got the deferment!
In other news, I’ve been working hard on my website. I’ve got a good chunk of the coding done (about 50% by my estimation), but I’ve still got a long way to go. This is easily the most complex website I’ve built and I want it to work as close to perfect as possible. Once the code is done, there’s the task of filling in the content. I want to copy over the content from my old site, which shouldn’t be too hard, and begin putting in new stuff. Hopefully, the end result will be a website that everyone can enjoy and lasts a long time.
Oh, and by the way, I’m not just building my own site right now. I’m also building an image hosting site, a forum site, a comics site, a resumé/portfolio site, a family tree site, a web design site and Ashley’s website. Ashley’s should actually be ready within the next couple weeks! The Image hosting site is actually finished already. I was able to code it over my four day weekend last weekend. Booyah! I’m a website-coding machine!
So… now I’m off to bed.
