Because we don't devote enough time or effort to obsessing over our child, we now have a forum to post adorable anecdotes, darling pictures and sweet little videos about our boy, Dash (Dashiell Olson Engel, if you're planning on sending him a wedding invitation).
He was 8 months old yesterday (one day before Talk Like a Pirate Day! Here's a joke: How much does corn cost on a pirate ship? A buck an ear! Arrrrr. No? How 'bout this one? A pirate walks into a bar & the bartender says, "Why is there a steering wheel in your pants?" And the pirate says, "It's driving me nuts!" Arrrrr! Yes? Yes?).
Dash currently has two teeth (bottom center) and is learning to crawl but is really just kinda humping along on his belly by pushing off with one foot. It's pretty effing cute. Here are some pictures to illustrate:
We'll post a video as soon as we can figure out how. Which could be a long, long time from now. But we're optimists.
