Pero que travieso!

Lucas decided to stand up today. Unfortunately, he tried to stand in an area much too small for his strapping 30 inches. (I told him it was an unusual choice of place but he didn't believe me.)

How do you catch a mapache without a trap or a dog?

It is too gruesome to say. So instead, I will tell you how you catch a monkey with no trap or no dog. You cut a hole in the top of a coconut and then put something shiney inside it. The monkey will grab the shiney thing and, with its fist too big to pull its hand out of the hole, will remain stuck in the coconut (which, presumably, you have tethered to something.) No matter what, the monkey will not let go of its shiney prize, even when the grim reaper draws near. Fortunately, my Lucas faced no such threat when caught in his toy box -- which is good because believe me you, he wasn't letting go easy.

It's kind of dark...

...but it's got a heck of a soundtrack. :)

in other news, look what a big boy my lucas is! (please forgive his orange carrot-cheeks. he is a big boy, but he hasn't learned to wash his face yet. he's been building up grime for 8 months now. gross.)

My dad is pretty cool.

(Especially if by pretty cool you mean very cool. That's him.)

Awkwardly silent video

...but still cute, no?

Lucas has these rants where he pounds his belly like a gorilla and gestures wildly like a tiny dictator delivering a monologue.
When he pauses, Matt translates for him -- it turns out he's upset very upset about the plight of the Chechens.

I think I might've accidentally brought home a frog from the hospital...
