How come your keyboard has no letters on the keys?!

That baking looks nice as well. :)

The baking came out well (though the photo didn't). I'll probably have more on that in an upcoming post.

The keyboard is a Das Keyboard, entirely black except for the logo. Besides the geek-cool factor, it's got a really nice mechanical action, has full-size proportions, and forces you to practice touch typing. I do most of my writing on my laptop and the small, mushy keyboard slows me down; so I carry along the full keyboard and plug it in when I need to work more efficiently.

I do miss proper keyboards, I must admit.

I second the piece of cheese idea :)

Oooo, that is an interesting idea... He's a bit squirmy, though. I might have a rather active piece of cheese. Still, it'd be cute. :)

OMG look at that huge boy! What a sweet smile. I have GOT to get up there to see him! Not until my car is out of the shop and I've gotten a wee bit ahead of the money black hole!

He is gettin' to be an armful. But I think he's really enjoying his newfound mobility.

You're certainly welcome to stop by and visit. You're in Oregon, IIRC? How far of a drive would it be for you?

Yeppers, I'm in Portland. Takes about 4 hours to get to Seattle area. Not a bad haul, but I might see about begging a couch for the night and driving back the next day, if that would work for you guys.

He's now 29 inches long/tall! It's amazing how fast he grows.

"He's mobile!" your life will never be the same!! the rest of the pictures are great too--somewhat awe inspiring--that bread at least looks great, and a letterless key board--wow I can barely type on one with letters--the yard looks overwhelming.You'll have to post after pictures.

Heh... You forget that our "yard" is actually "woods". That is the after picture. We want to keep it as wild as possible.

What I did was clear the path (through the left-middle of the pic, passing between the ferns) and clear sticks and leaves off the lawn (not visible in pic).
