I'm a bit sad today. It seems my best friend may be in danger of becoming my ex-best friend. She and I don't have a lot in common anymore, fandom-wise. We each have moved on to a new fandom the other knows little about and cares less to learn about. But that's not the real problem. We still have a history and life experiences in common. But she seems to have stopped reading my lj, and never ever comments on it, even when it's something important, like when my sis found out her marriage was likely ending. She grumbles sadly in her lj, on those few occasions when she posts (or perhaps I have been filtered out of most of her posts?), about the distance come between us. But then she doesn't reply to my comments trying to reassure her and asking when she will be online so that we can find time to really talk. I think she may have already given up on us. Which is really sad.

On a brighter note, Devon is now quite willing to happily play for quite a long while on his tummy. And he's trying soooo hard to make crawling motions, but his wee tummy is still on the ground. It's adorable! He had "real food" for the first time this weekend -- bananas I mashed into his baby cereal. I was worried he might have a problem with the consistency, given he's still no teeth, but he didn't balk even once. My li'l guy is growing up. He also, last week for the first time, figured out that he toes fit in his mouth. Now that is adorable!

My job officially ends March 10th. That's a month longer than I expected, so that makes me very happy. And I will be working on contract for them after I finish, so I will have at least a little money coming in. I saw my old boss from the Grand Rapids office yesterday, as he was in town for a meeting, apparently, and he told me that he still uses several of my criminal law reports as examples for new hires as to how to properly write a report. That made me very happy. Especially as he said it in front of my current boss, who tends to heavily edit a lot of my statements of facts in my criminal reports. The old boss commented specifically that it is my statement of facts in the criminal reports that he gives to new hires as an example of how to do it correctly. My current boss just got this funny grin on his face and I wanted to crack up. I adore my current boss, but he does edit me more than I think is needed.

Anyway, onward to another busy day. I hope you have a safe flight, Jem, and that you don't get too brow-beaten over your religious views. Have a nice day, all!

My li'l guy is growing up.

But he'll still need his mommy for a good long time, don't worry. ;)

(I've always found the baby toe-eating thing pretty adorable, too.)

Awwww, thanks! *hugs*

It is pretty darn cute, isn't it? He's known about/played with his toes for quite a while now, but never made the leap of toes-in-mouth until last week. We've been waiting and waiting for it.

I'm sorry to hear about your best friend. I hate when that happens. It happened to me earlier this year, and it sucks. It's such a loss, and it's really shitty of her not to reply to you. *hugs tightly*

Devon is adorable, though. :) Take more pictures!

I haven't given up, I just hadn't anything helpful to say. Things like "oh dear, sorry about your luck, hope everything turns out right" are crappy things to say. And no, you're not filtered out of my posts...I had a special filter that's just for you to see, infact...but I do hardly post anymore. I just don't have anything to say about my life, and when there is something, I take a long time to say it. I post more often with this journal than the other. I haven't replied to your comment because I haven't replied to anyone's comments. I'm not on AIM hardly anymore, but when I am you're always RPing, and I feel as if I'm intruding or as if your mind is elsewhere. Which is fine of course, I wouldn't ask you to stop doing something you love to do, but because of our conflicting schedules it's hard to find a time when we're both online, except for late late at night or a weekend, when Ty is here anyway.

don't worry, I haven't given up, but it's true that we hardly talk anymore and I feel like we're drifting apart and that you're being pulled away from me. I don't know.

Great news about Devon though - he should be creeping any time now, according to the average development for his age. does he try to sit up by himself yet? Are you feeding him in a high chair, or what?

<:3D~

Maybe we need to set up a play date? Heeeeee. Love you. And miss you. It's hard with our conflicting schedules, but if we can hold out for a while, until our schedules change, we'll be back talking each others ears off. And don't ever feel like you're intruding when I'm rp'ing. I'm slow responding not because my mind is elsewhere, but because I usually have at least five or six things going at once when I'm on the computer. I'm glad, no relieved is the better word, that I'm not filtered out of your posts. I was afraid I'd been relegated to "not so much of a friend" status. Yer still my "bestest friend ever", ya know? *hugs lots*
