i came to the realization today that my 7-month-old daughter Marley is TOTALLY in charge of my life. as a big-time control freak (all comicbook creators are control freaks), i'd normally be upset at finding control of my life in someone else's hands... but her little hands are SO CUTE!
seriously, my wife and daughter figure so prominently in everything i do, it isn't even funny. this is not a surprise to me, but when explaining my decisions to other people i'm amused with how stunned they are that i consider anyone else's needs before my own. i guess that's why some people fear commitment. not everyone is built for it...
anywho, Marley is a big girl now: she can crawl, stand up (sorta) and is learning to eat soquids (solid/liquid, semi-solids like baby food). i spend most of my day deciding if things are safe for her to chew, climb on, or bang her head against. we are at that stage where we are SURE Marley is saying words, but she probably isn't yet. everyday, she's smarter than the day before. anyways, click the pic for more pictures, or watch the slideshow below!
