The Comedian, One Year Later

Just think, a year ago today I was tweeting it up and doing this. One minute I was watching Oprah, the next The Comedian, formerly known as Dash Two had arrived.

You looked up at me with those big, unblinking eyes and I instantly fell in love. While you are named The Comedian for laughing at all the wrong times and reasons you are also my little cuddle bug. As a 'no-touch, non-cuddler' I am powerless to resist you. When you burrow into my neck it is like kryptonite.

In the past year you have been the bruisin' Blutarski of the house. You have learned to crawl with your head ducked down to avoid licks from the dog and you can topple your sister in a simple headlock. You like to yell at the neighbors from your kitchen window perch. You climb head first into the shower regardless of who is in there and are always looking for a missed crumb or whole cake, pile of cheese or pasta to cram into your piehole. You do not like to miss out on even one scrap of food.

Today you are cruising around, yelling your head off and smiling with a charming under bite that makes people smile back no matter what. You think your sister is the bees knees except when she takes your toys. Then holy hell must be paid or just an extreme case of sticking out that lower lip pout. You could give lessons on that one.

I can't wait to learn more about your sweet and crazy personality as this new year unfolds. You'll always be my baby. Happy first birthday Comedian!

    She's a year old already?! How'd that happen!

    Happy birthday, dear sweet Comedian!

  2. I always had a sneaking suspicion that kids have a Really! They have such a sophisticated sense of what is funny they are like little laugh factories in kids suits. Enjoy it now because when the teenage years hit, alas, all is lost.
