On the move

(And now for something completely different)

This is Junebug. You've seen him before, but maybe it's been awhile since you've seen just how cute he is. I know I'm biased. I think he's the cutest baby ever, but even when I look from as objective a perspective as I can muster, you've still gotta admit that he's, like, what? Top Ten cutest, at least.

He's crawling around now, which is terrifying, but also adds to his cuteness. His is not an up-on-all-fours crawl, but something a little more makeshift: left forearm forward for locomotion, right arm out for stability, right leg pushing off for more locomotion, left leg kicking up and down kind of pointlessly for added adorability, and nice little rhythm you can dance to.

Since I began this post, he's done two laps around our home library, stopping here at the desk to smile at me beatifically at least twice (he might not have completed the second lap otherwise, but those smiles are distracting.)

Anyway, since I can't be actually working on Chapter 3 while he's awake, or, for that matter, prepping my grad course (tomorrow night's topic: metatheatricality in late medieval drama (Mankynde and Fulgens and Lucres), I might as well issue this paean to his cuteness. Or play with him. Which reminds me...

Junebug is so cute!!! Seriously, he really is top ten cute. That's a freakin' Gerber baby in that picture. (Also, strangely, he looks a little like ProfGrrrrl's equally photogenic Bambina, but maybe it's just the big blue eyes and round baby head.)

Btw, I *heart* you for teaching Mankind and Fulgens and Lucres.

Blow raspberries on his belly for me!!!!! Now!

Cute cute!

He is without a doubt the smiley-est baby ever. No wonder you can't get anything done--it's pretty freakin' irresistible. And why bother to resist? What else could be more rewarding?
