Jacob has resumed his experiments in zombie forming this week. He's woken up a few times the past couple of nights and is getting up before 6 a.m. again. When I got home last night from Tae Kwon Do, Angie was dozing on Jacob's floor. She must have been trying to soothe him to sleep and did too good a job. She was her own collateral damage.
Jacob has made some other scientific progress too. Specifically, he has discovered doorknob technology. The first door knob he opened was the bathroom door--not when the bathroom was empty, either. Poor Angie, lucky me. He has not opened other doors yet, but it is only a matter of time and practice. I guess we'll be up for another round of babyproofing. This time, it's door knobs.
Now that he has access to the bathroom, he is making use of the facilities. No, he has not self-potty trained (though that would be totally awesome). He decided some of his little stuffed animals need to be cleaned. No, he didn't use the bath tub or the sink. He put them in the toilet. We've fished out the poor animals (ironically enough, none of them were fish) and run them through the laundry machine. I guess we have to babyproof the toilets too!
I no longer believe that scientific advancements are always a good thing. Someday, I'm sure Jacob will make a helpful discovery. I don't need a cure for cancer or the common cold, I'd be happy for vacuuming or lawn mowing.
