In Which Connor Smiles For The Camera

Today was school picture day for Connor, and it sounds like he actually might have smiled this year!  Usually Connor's school pictures are Very Serious, because taking pictures is apparently a Very Serious Business.  So we'll just have to wait a few weeks and see what we get!

Connor had one seizure today in the school parking lot right before I dropped him off in the morning, but the rest of the day went really well.  He did spend a good portion of the day feeling around in his mouth; he's got two loose teeth on the bottom right now and I think his back molars are starting to come in; he keeps shoving his fingers back there and feeling around, and he's drooling like crazy right now.  Poor little guy; cutting teeth is no fun! 

The steampunk roller derby costume is moving right along; I finished off both my bloomers and my bustle today, and I'm pretty darn proud of them both!  Of course I didn't think to factor in all the fabric when I sent in my measurements for my corset, and now it's a bit too small.  Oh well-- I'll manage.  If nothing else, I'm sure I could find a new one when I'm at the convention!

So I was looking back on the my older entries, and I discovered that I actually strapped on my first pair of roller derby skates exactly a year ago yesterday.  Crazy, huh?  I look back at that picture of me in my gear for the first time and it drives me absolutely nuts because I have my knee pads on the wrong knees, so the Velcro was probably catching every time I touch my knees together.  Oh well.

I'm glad I'm still having so much fun with skating, and I haven't managed to seriously mangle myself or anything.  I can't believe it's been a whole year!
