I can't handle the growing


Someone is SO PROUD because he can crawl all over the house, pull up on furniture, and even cruise a little bit around the coffee ottoman. I won't name names, but he looks an awful lot like THIS guy:









Yes, that IS a rope in his mouth (above) and over his shoulder (below). He carries that thing around with him like he's Indiana Jones. I have to watch him like a hawk so he doesn't get hung up on anything while he's crawling around with it.




He's growing up too quickly. Somebody get me the anti-venin for Baby Fever, stat.

He totally has the White Man's Overbite kicking because of his concentration. I love it.

Seriously, who knows that antivenin is even a word... not to mention that it is the more correct word to use instead of antivenom? and yes, i looked it up - I couldn't stand it!

Mel, I didn't know that "anti-venom" was a word at all. I've heard it used often (well, as often as I've heard about snakebites, I guess), but I always thought it was like "sherbert" ... a word that people say all the time that doesn't exist. IT'S SHERBET. One R, people. So you've educated me; now I know that somewhere along the way, "anti-venom" became a word, too.

I think you're exactly right - that anti-venin is the correct word and over time, they've been forced to add antivenom to the dictionary!

Wikipedia: Antivenin (or antivenom or antivenene) is a biological product used in the treatment of venomous bites or stings. The name comes from the French word venin meaning venom, and historically the word antivenin was predominant around the world. For the English language the World Health Organization decided in 1981 that the preferred terminology in the English language would be "venom" and "antivenom" rather than "venin/antivenin" or "venen/antivenene".[1] However, it is still called antivenin or antivenene by many organizations today.
