I’m trying to adjust to the idea that maybe Russ Feingold, who is probably the most principled politician in Washington DC, is no longer supported by the people of Wisconsin. I’m trying to hold onto some hope for the guy, but I can’t deny that I’m worried.
So, I think I will focus on the fact that little Finn has finally decided that he needs to be mobile. He isn’t crawling exactly, but he’s figured out how to get to where he wants to be. All it took was a trip to the library to hang out with other kids his age who were moving around. That was Tuesday. On Tuesday night and Wednesday, he practiced his moves. Today he managed to start scooting around. He’s got a bit of an unorthodox style. He gets into a kind of pre-crawling position and then sits up. This moves him three of four inches forward. Then he sits straight up and uses one leg to scoot another few inches. Then he repeats the cycle. In combination, he’s able to move up to eight feet in a fairly short period of time in pursuit of a toy or a bowl of macaroni and cheese.
I’m trying to stay focused on the important stuff.
