The Winter of my Discontent

 

In my last update, I talked about the sorry shape of my arms; I mean they have very little definition. Anyway, since then my mom and dad have been spending a little more time trying to help out. They put me on the floor on my stomach where I try and do some pushups and I whine and cry a little, but I am working through that and the extra work seems to be helping. My legs on the other hand already seem to have the strength of Hercules. With a little balancing help I can stand on my feet for quite a while whatever that means (like I have any concept of time at this point).

Life seems to be calming down, a little bit anyway. It seems like they are trying to get me to sleep at the same time everyday (again hard to say as I have no frame of reference where time is concerned). Question: why is it that sometimes I sleep when it is dark out and sometimes I sleep when it is light out? An interesting thought here: if I were able to get answers to all my questions and then figure out how to sell that information to other babies, I could be rich by the time I am 3! Of course, if others babies are like me, flat broke, how would they pay me for my information? My life is one huge quandary. Am I the only one here who thinks that I think about this kind of stuff way too much?

Finally I have some pictures on this site that really look like me! Have you seen the stuff that I have been posting on this website? Pretty pitiful, huh? We have my parents to thank for that, they canít take pictures to save their lives. I know they try and all, but please! Realize you have no talent in this area and move on for the sake of my future!

Do you think I use too many exclamation points in my writing? Do you remember that Seinfeld where Elaine basically rewrote someoneís book and used an exclamation point after nearly every sentence? I hope you remember, because I sure donít! What do you think, I watch Seinfeld? What are you crazy? I mean I might have seen it in passing, but never on a regular basis. Even if I could understand it, George would drive me nuts. I do like TV though; I have one video, which I watch for hours (?) (see earlier references to time), and yadda yadda yadda, it keeps me happy.

Pretty boring stuff, right? To be perfectly honest, I really did not have the energy to create a top ten list of my most recent observations, plus I think I have said everything I need to here. So, if you were waiting with much anticipation for the next list, you are going to have to wait a little longer. Anyway, you know what they say, "good things come to those who wait!"

Until next time,

Cole
