Must be a Halogen Bulb

I have no idea if this is early or not as Mrs. LIAYF and I do not closely monitor developmental stages for infants (we both figure Luke will figure things out when he is good and ready to) but an ah-ha! moment seemed to happen with Budlet last night. We have this soft photo book with pictures in it of us and also of our two feline freeloaders, Penny and Albert. While Lukas was looking at the photo of Albert, he walked his fat can on by and there was instant recognition as Lukas looked to the picture, then to Fat Albert, then to the picture again, then to Fat Albert and a big two front toothy, full faced grin ensued. Ditto the picture of Penny as well, as she was ever present and looking for attention as she always is (when she is not scratching on some of our furniture or attacking the glass door when some poor scraggly outdoor neighbor cat looks longingly into our feline palace). Insert cliche here "It was like a lightbulb turning on for him"

Anyway, Lukas seems to be experiencing some new development on a daily basis. It is so much fun to watch and makes me forget, just for a while,how really old I am getting. At least until the next time I bend over to pick him up and my body sounds just a bit like milk poured over a fresh bowl of Rice Krispies. Snap, Crackle, Pop!
