The Other Kid

Sometimes I go on and on about Aidie's accomplishments so much, you'd think he was an only child. The other kid ain't doing so bad.

She is just under seven months old, so the academic subjects really haven't taken hold. She is sitting on her own, crawling, pulling herself up to stand, and eating like a horse. Every day her personality becomes more and more defined.

It is almost like I had forgotten about all these stages of development. Soon she will no longer seem helpless as she reaches that stage of going anywhere anytime. I think that's when they start to lose babyhood. That and the ability to communicate. Babies communicate in rudimentary ways, but you can't carry on an intelligent conversation with them.

With Aidan I can explain things he sees and he can remember. He grasps concepts and ideas. He understands, for example, that on the news we see trouble in the Ukraine. Abby doesn't quite grasp this yet. But we'll keep her anyway.

Ik ga totaal akkoord. Ware Thats, mijn oom altijd vertelde me dat. Ik houd van uw adviezen en ik zal vaker uw plaats voortaan bezoeken. Dank voor grote inhoud, houdt het goede werk. Ongelooflijk er zijn geen dergelijke goede plaatsen zoals van u. Als mijn bovengenoemde grootvader: het goede werk zal altijd appriciated zijn. Ten slotte zou ik willen toevoegen dat vele mensen niet aith akkoord zouden gaan dat het soort adviezen maar dont, harder houdt opgeeft! Hvis du vil have Christiania Mønten med hjem som souvenir, skal du spørge efter den når du handler i Fristaden. Hører du til den type der synes, at lokale valutaer er et spændende økonomisk eksperiment, opfordres du til at bruge Christiania Mønten i din hverdag.
