Some new talents

September 14, 2008

Well, Sariah has learned a few new tricks since I last wrote here. We started off by teaching her how to walk heel-to-toe in a straight line and to say the alphabet backwards. We did this so that if we ever get pulled over for drunk driving, we can throw her in the driver’s seat and claim she was the designated driver (she, of course, would be sober because she is too young to hold a beer can by herself and I hear that drinking it from a sippy cup ruins the flavor).

Okay enough of that nonsense. You guys are ridiculous. Seriously…

  1. Sariah started standing on her own a couple weeks ago and about three days ago she started walking around while pushing a device that looks kind of like a walker for old people. We are hoping she will be walking independently in time for her one year birthday on the 27th. If you are reading this, you are more than welcome to stop by our place on that date and see if she is actually walking or if she has once again demonstrated the accuracy of her current moniker: “Daddy’s little disappointment”. Also, if you are the gambling type, the odds are currently at 5 to 1 that she will be walking on, or before the 27th. You can place your bets by calling me and uttering the phrase “the duck flies at midnight”.
  2. Sariah has also recently started appreciating some of the finer things in life. You know,  a good cuban cigar, well-manicured nails, 17th-century impressionism, and Teletubbies. Now, I have heard some critics non-chalantly demean the Teletubbies by suggesting that the program is “mindless drivel”, or that the main characters are “creepy-loooking” or “gay”. But let me say this: they make her stop crying immediately and maintain her rapt attention for upwards of twenty minutes. They have also taught her to say “bye-bye” and “uh-oh”. Last time I checked, none of the Teletubbies critics have taught Sariah to say any words – so their critiques will be falling on deaf ears. Specifically, my deaf ears.
  3. Lastly, Sariah now has two lower front teeth. Now, I know that some of you out there are saying “Hey Ryan, growing teeth isn’t exactly a talent”. Of course, my answer to that is: “Shut your face”. Which should help clarify my position on the matter. 

So anyway that’s a little bit of insight into our home. We have some vacation photos from our trip to Montana that we know you’ll love seeing. Unfortunately we still haven’t had a chance to go through them so it/you will have to wait. Until then, enjoy this video of Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live recently. It’s ridiculously accurate!
