Time really does fly.

Mario is almost four months old. Think about that for a minute. Four months ago today Julie and I were talking to her ever-expanding pregnant belly, telling its contents to stay put until October. Mario didn't stay put, though, and joined us as the sun rose on the last day of September. I should have figured as much, as most Klinkos celebrate their birthdays toward the end of a month.

In the past four months he has definitely gotten bigger. He weighs about 14 pounds now, nearly twice his birth weight. He swings his limbs around like nobody's business, babbles to his surroundings, smiles at familiar faces, and I even caught him rolling over. It may not seem like a terribly huge deal and, to be frank, I never knew what a big deal it really was until I saw myself how he started out: unable to stay awake for more than half an hour at a time, completely lacking the ability to make significant movements, and no vocalization capabilities whatsoever. Given that baseline, these steps are definitely huge.

So ... been quite busy with work and home lately. I'm sure things will eventually calm down on both fronts, but for now it's night after sleep-deprived night followed by busy days. I'm pretty sure I'm single-handedly keeping the global coffee industry running.
