Jilly growing up an almost terrifying rate. First, she no longer fits in her bouncer chair. Then the swing and the Bumbo.
Then, one day she went from rocking with a purpose to full on crawling. Then a day later, we heard ‘Da Da’.
Today her first tooth started tearing through.
She’s been pulling herself on just about anything she can get her hands on. Guessing walking is just around the corner.
Jeepers, when other parents say enjoy this time because it doesn’t last long, I guess they’re not kidding.
Just replaced the stock header photo from WordPress with something my personal photography collection. Enjoy the shapes in some lights from Frank Lloyd Wrights’ Falling Water house.
When I set up the new version of the WordPress Twitter Tools plugin (where you had to go set up a bunch more stuff on the Twitter side), I missed the switch that allows WordPress to post to Twitter. So, the last few posts went unannounced. Don’t worry, you didn’t really miss much.
Well, almost in my backyard. Lemoyne College was having their semester kickoff party. They launch their fireworks less than a half mile from my house. We had a pretty good view right from the backyard, save for a few low fliers that didn’t clear the treeline.
Unsurprisingly, the cats have vanished; probably won’t see them again until the morning (not so sad about that.). Jilly, on the other hand, slept through the whole 20 minute show and didn’t even flinch. Wow!
iPod Touch that is. Blogging from bed. Gotta say the text entry in iOS is pretty tolerable. I’m pretty sure that I can type faster on the screen than I can I can one the dedicated keyboard on my Palm Centro. Now, I just have to find some extra funds every month so I can upgrade to an iPhone…
Time is something that I’m pretty short on these days. I’ve been meaning to do some work on the old blog for months it seems. I’m finally blowing the dust off the keyboard and trying to get stuff back up to snuff.
Step one was to get all my wordpress plugins in order. Geez, just about every plugin I use was out of date. Most of them went off without a hitch. A few needed some random voodoo of deactivating and reactivating. The last.fm widget needed me to add an include for jQuery.
Next was catching WordPress itself up. I was pleasantly surprised that the one click update worked as advertised. No muss, no fuss.
I was getting a little tired of my hacked up version of the original Kubrick theme. So, I’m gonna switch over to a slightly (ok, really slightly) hacked version of the new twentyten default theme. Truth be told, I rather like it right out of the box. I should probably comb through my iPhoto gallery and find my own photo to use in the header. Baby steps, I know; but progress, none-the-less.
I did recently acquire Build Your Own Wicked WordPress Themes. Hopefully, that’ll light a fire under me to do something a little more one-off.
