July was a busy month around here. The evidence of this is that I’ve not filed an update here in over a month. At the end of July I exhibited with World Famous Comics at the San Diego International Comic Con. It is the largest convention of it’s kind in the world, and attendance this year was in the range of 140,000 people. It’s a lot of fun, and I’ve met a lot of really good people there over the years. But it’s physically taxing. I’m not as young as I used to be, and every year it gets harder to stand in a booth for 8 hours and then spend all night drinking.
After a week of that, it takes me a while to decompress and get back in the swing of my normal life.
The past month has been full of milestones.
We had our first boo boo that required a bandaid.
We discovered that kitchen cabinets open.
We had our first fist bump.
We learned that toilet paper is fun.
We started feeding ourselves.
We turned 10 months old.
We took our first walk in the stroller without the car seat.
Of course, I’m using the royal “we” to speak about Logan. I’ve already done all those things. Except feeding myself. That’s a new milestones for me as well.
The doctor gave Logan a clean bill of health during his July checkup and he weighed in at 17lbs. Still very much on the small side, but he continues to grow at a pace he’s set for himself. Any concern we have for his low weight is diminished by watching him eat. Logan can hold his own spoon now, and about 2 times out of three even manages to get the food in his mouth.
Two more months and my little fella will be a year old.
