We are officially declaring d'ar.........cyyy as Julian's first word. Julian choose to honor his very best friend who makes sure that he is read to at night even when mommy isn't up to it. She's the one who keeps him giggling long after they should have been asleep and who frees him from the jerry rigged thumb sucking prevention bandage that mommy and daddy are forcing him to wear at night. Good choice, Julian.
Julian has also decided that walking is worth the pain and suffering. Yesterday, at the library, he spent about an hour and a half happily walking up and down the aisles. D'arcy was excited to get her stroller back as she has decided that walking isn't really worth the trouble.
