Beautiful baby: Same as others, my response is usually something like, "Thanks, we like him," or, "Yep, we've decided to keep him. I hear they are tough to put back, anyway."
Rolling, rolling, rolling: We had one good roll a while back (in which he ground his face into our bath mat) and then nothing. Today, he apparently woke up with the goal of mastering this rolling thing. I've just put a big blanket on the floor next to me and he is rolling like mad. He does back to front, hangs out for a bit, and then needs help to flip back.
Grabbing: Yes on this as well. I put his gym (this one) out on the blanket this morning, and he grabbed onto the red ring and couldn't figure out how to let go. I feel a little bad about laughing at him, but it was pretty dang funny. ("Help! My arm is stuck!!" "Uh, kid, let go of the ring.") He also got quite the fistful of my mom's hair last night.
Which brings me to ... awkward conversations: My mom is going to be living with us part time now, i.e., one or two nights a week. She got a job in the city and will telecommute some of the time, but needs to be in the office at least a couple of days a week. It is wonderful that she got a job, I'm thrilled that we will see her more often, and we are happy to help out by providing her with a place to stay. However, I need to figure out how to talk to her about a few things. There are things that I just don't worry about when we don't see someone all that often. For example, I swear, she bathes in perfume. She doesn't do it so much on vacation, so it's never been a huge problem before, but she has always worn heavy perfume to work, and it's going to be a serious problem for us. Both DH and I had headaches from it last night. Gah. I need to figure out how to discuss that with her.
Leiahs, congrats to your DH on the job! Sorry they didn't make a better offer, but that's great about the benefits.
starling, that's a lot of laundry change!
