Nerd's delight.

I was happy to be able to take the boy to the park today--both that it was good enough weather and that we could get there before it got dark. That time change sure makes it get dark early around here. He walked up and down the two shallow steps there about five times, and when he finally decided to stay up, he clapped for himself. He has started to play a funny game with himself while I change his diapers--he will lightly pinch his own hand and say "ow, ow, ow." Strange little man.

I received my new, texting-friendly phone today, and as I suspected, I love having a full keyboard at my disposal. Now that I actually have several people I like to text message with, I can see it being more useful. That probably makes me a nerd, but hey, if you didn't know I was a nerd by now, you really don't know me very well at all. :)

Well, if having a full keyboard makes you a nerd, I'm sure there are a lot of people right there with you. Me, for example :)

I don't think I worded that very well. I think what I was going for was, the fact that I was ridiculously excited about having a full keyboard was nerdy, not just having one. :)
