Defying the Laws of Physics

We didn't think it could be done. Between the girth of the tummy and the rolls on rolls on rolls of her thighs, we just didn't think it was physically possible. But, ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce that this morning Natalie got her toes in her mouth. Photographic evidence will follow when/if she ever does it in a slightly more clothed state.

Her scoot has gotten more coordinated and a little faster. One could even call it a millitary crawl now. Yikes.

In other news, the social worker told us last weekend that Natalie "seems to be adjusting well" to us. Phew. I was so worried about how she'd adjust to the ONLY THING SHE'S EVER KNOWN.


  • I notice that Cait addressed her commentary to "ladies and gentlemen". Are there any guys that read us? :)

  • The social worker actually said "adjusting well" ?! What a moron. But glad you guys got good marks just the same.

  • That's got to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard a social worker say, and in my profession I have heard them say some pretty dumb things.

    So happy for you guys, Natalie is wonderful.

  • Wow...I wonder if my lowercase is "adjusting well" to us...

    Seriously...Jen only carried her for 9 months while Cait was there the whole time talking to've both only been holding her in your arms since the moment she entered the outside world.

    Morons! Which makes me ask, yet again...are we really the only sane ones out there? Or are we the ones who are crazy?

  • Friggin ridiculas. Seriously, what a jerk. I can't believe she said that! I am so very sorry that you two have to go through this at all. Blech.

    I too am surprised that the cuteness can get her toes in her mouth! We were wondering about Logan as well, but he did a dive for them a few weeks ago and has pretty much had them in his mouth ever since. The best part to look forward too? Natalie waking up in the night trying to get them in there. Repeatedly. Gotta love the new skills! :-)

  • Does something happen in social work school in which they suction out brain cells? I say this based on a sample size of two, but dang, "adjusting to you"???!?

  • It's comments like "She's adjusting well" that make me seethe.

    How soon is the next election?

  • Malka can still only get toes completely in her mouth when a nudie on the changing table.

    She just attempts it all other times...

    Way to go Nat!

  • Yeah, must have a real shock to her, having to adjust to you two after all this time together! I know it was terribly hard on Leila coming out from the womb to be with me.

    Stupid social worker. Yes, it's so hard because Natalie's mommies are lesbians.

    Hate people like that.

  • I'm so relieved to hear that she's adjusting to you and hasn't had to file her emancipation papers. God.

  • By the way, I saw some great onsies online recently. One says "They're Raising Me Gay," and the other one says, "My Parents are Big Gay Liberals." I think she should wear one of those next time Social Worker visits. Ha.
