Kitty Bjorn

This is not what happens necessarily when one has too much time on one's hands, but rather when one is doing taxes. Everyone needs a break and for our friend Susan, that means trying out Abe's Baby Bjorn with her cat, Honey, the same cat Abe wakes up in the morning talking about. That is one cool cat and she loved being carted around like this, purring up a storm

I do want to write about our interesting Father's Day and Abe's birthday, but for now, here are two videos. The first is showing Abe's fascination with cats and his vocal range:

And now, a clip from a Christopher Guest-style, improvised mockumentary Susan did called Change Your Life! about pyramid schemes and stupid products/cultural trends. This one makes me laugh out loud every time. You can see more by going here.

Taming of the Shrew opens tomorrow night, so if any of you are in the Hollywood area, go check out Ted's directorial brilliance. Our friend Carolee is actually babysitting for us, which will be Abe's first evening with a babysitter. Weird for me, not for him--every baby loves Carolee. It'll just be Abe's first night being put down to sleep by anyone but me or Ted. Big step, I think.

Well I probably DO have too much time on my hands when I'm not doing taxes. I love Abe's vocal range and vocabulary, not to mention that hoist up to your chair!

Carolee will have a blast babysitting I am sure. Susan is hilarious!

Tell Abe that I agree with everything he said. I knew the first time I saw him that he was one smart boy:-)

Sorry that this post does NOT have to do with Abe's video, but Bekah wants a copy of Uncle Ted's play 'cause it's one of her fav's, and "my birthday was May 8th". P.S. She's "holding a present for Abe that is very near and dear to her heart.... you have to come get it."

Abe is truly THE cutest little one ever. And I'm not even being dramatic.

I laugh, I cry.

I share his video with everyone I can grab and force in front of a computer screen.

Ridiculous, I am.

lots of goodness in this post. women carrying cats in baby slings. adorable ethio babies babbling. and i love that last video. i saw the other day that oprah is getting ready to do a show on "the law of attraction." which i think has something to do with "the secret." i wonder how "the secret" works in ethiopia???? maybe they should try it out it war-torn rwanda?? or maybe in haiti, where starving people are eating sand. i'm sure it'd be really helpful.
