    There's one part in every day when he'll wake from a nap (usually lying face down across my torso, head on the hollow of my shoulder) and his eyes will open really wide and we'll just smile at one another for a while.

    Best part of my day.

    You know they are born knowing what faces are, and that a face is another person like them?

    Someone spent some time with newly born infants; he discovered that they would mimic his facial expressions. That's apparently wired in.

    I remember the sweetness of that first real smile from each of them.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies,
    their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such,
    for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.

    Good to stop by. I had a good head clearing, got past health issues with my father and am half way through the agency process, so I'm in a much better place these days.

    You have no idea. It's like hitting the baby lottery. He wakes up smiling and whispering to me in the morning. The other day he was in his jumper and fell asleep right as he made his last half leap.

    Same to you, bybee, and a good many of my friends here. But it's been best for me and I'll likely continue it more than not for a while. Still sorting out a few things. It's good to say hello and to return so many kindnesses I wasn't here to see.

    He has such an emotive face . I notice you have already initiated him into the Crimson Tide family!

    One of the joys of parenthood (or just person-hood for all of that) is watching a young child take in information.

    BTW, Mrs. Barbarian thinks he's "adorable." She likes the giraffe suit best.
