Good, Bad, Ugly

The Good: Cortland passed his physical therapy assessment for gross motor skills.

The Bad: The therapist noticed that he is a bit behind on fine motor skills and that his little tongue sticking out may be an indication that he's tongue-tied. She also said that his difficulty keeping food in his mouth and his lack of verbal sounds are other indications of being tongue-tied.

The Ugly: Not so ugly; Cortland will start having speech therapy and more in-depth physical therapy.


The Good: I found the book I loved so much when I was a kid. It's called The Terrible Troll-Bird. I must have checked it out of my elementary school library a hundred times. I love Amazon and their used book sale place!

The Bad: It's (a lot) more violent than I remember.

The Ugly: Regardless, we will still read the hell out of it. I love this book!

Cortland's favorite was the Caterpillar Roll and the tofu in the miso soup.

Baby Bird Lips

This morning I was eating my Malt-o--Meal in the living room with Cortland on his knees in front of me; wobbling a bit because he doesn't have much balance yet; his face turned up and his little mouth opening and closing like a baby bird.

Of course I shared. Who could say no to that.


I think I just drank a fly in my coffee. II felt it thunk against my teeth as it went down. I just kept swallowing. I need caffeine.
