- Every now and then
you snap a pic that is just an organic alligning of
Control to Major Tom
- In fact, it
inspired a video of "mealtime" that is becoming quite
the tradition... her sneaking food to the dog when I'm
- Ha. Oh and a quick
aside about the "more" sign. This blows my
- We had been
teaching Vienna the sign "more" as:
- She however, kept
doing the finger to her palm as you see in the
- It was close
enough, she did it when she wanted "more", and we were
happy she was doing anything to communicate. So
her sign became the new "more"...
- ...remember in the
last entry when I mentioned that Vienna will
often sit for over an HOUR in front of a stack of
books? Studying every page? You ready for
- Oh for fuck's
sake. Are you kidding me? One of her books shows THIS
as the sign? The kid is 13 months old. How is this
possible. How did she freaking ignore the what we had
taught her in another book and in videos... and then
study on her own, study her books and
THIS picture and put it together?
- COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNN already.
I don't want to be that dad. LOL. You can't imagine
how much I don't want to be the "oh, my kid is
smarter than the average kid" because
ALL first-time parents think that...
COME ONNNNNNNNN. 13 months? She did her OWN

mean, in a good way - but I think I've mentioned
it before, I don't hope for my children to be
exceptional in areas to the point of freak. In
the end we all want to be happy, and prodigies
are not. Ever. I want her to be exceptional and
hard-working and have talents that help her kick-ass,
but please don't be the 12 year old graduating high
- That being said,
we aren't there yet - but this kinda freaked me out.
I mean, I had shown her this book before, but
both Talya and I specifically showed her the sign
- ...because it's
the actual, fucking, sign. I mean, can we
all agree on some shit already?
- Anyway, my kid is
cute and smart and I went damn near a month and 7
entries without spotlighting her so THERE!
- Good times though.
