Just thought I'd post a recent photo of Elliott. He is loads of fun. I don't know if he thinks the same of us though because he requires about 14 hours of solid entertainment per day and combined we are not always up to the task. We think he is on the verge of walking. He can get to his feet as long as there is something to pull himself up with and he can balance standing still for a couple of seconds. He can walk around if he has something to grab onto, but he's a little wobbly in the hips so if he tries to venture away from support he goes down.
He can say several things that we recognize aside from mama and dada of course. We like when he calls Valerie. He doesn't land any of the consonants although I think I do detect a bit of rhotacization toward the end.
I'm married with three children; the oldest is 26 and is studying to be a nurse, and our youngest is an intense 8 year old who keeps his old parents on their toes...and knees. The middle one is studying Biology and Japanese at the local university and works at a lab on campus.
I currently teach high school Spanish as well as evening adult Spanish classes. My wife works with special needs elementary students.
I like to get out for a run a few times a week. The recent change of presidency has awoken the analyst in me.
