Friday Liam #14 (and two videos)

Liam has started to take steps.

He's also playing the bongos daily. Here's his first time.

I used to play drums in high school and never got really good because I was so easily distracted (usually by books and magazines ... but actually by TV). So when I watch this video I laugh. And of course, before I turned the camera on he was banging away.

So it goes...

Anna Wednesday #13

The girl loves her stuffed friends. She puts them to sleep during the day and gives them security objects. The bunny on the left has a baby doll as a security object (Anna is not speciesist in her stuffed friends role-playing). The giraffe on the right had blankie-bear for its security object, but that was before Anna laid down. See, blankie-bear is Anna's security object (and has been since she was around six months old or so).

Oh yeah, and she's a thumb sucker. Have I not mentioned that? She sucks her thumb to sleep. She's only three. I'm not too concerned about it.

Hase over at Vegan Macht Glucklich gave me this award:

I'm flattered. And I'm positive that her blog is awesome, but I can't read German. I took a year of it back in high school, but I've lost almost all of it. Danke, Hase. (I remember that much, at least.)

I'm passing the award on to Half Pint Pixie, whose blog is consistently informing, entertaining and engaging. She's vegan, a proponent and practitioner of attachment parenting, and Irish. She was one of the first vegan blogs I started reading and probably one the first people to read my blog (thanks to the Vegan Freak forums).

So, depending on what language you speak, there are two more blogs you should read.

We're leaving town Friday and I don't foresee having time to do a Friday Liam. So here you go. Two for one.
