Throw me the Idol!

Day 31 - meeting our friend Jason (oops, forgot to post this one before)

Day 38 - Hanging with cool uncle David. No, her neck's not broken.

Day 39 - Meeting Rabbi Ben. Fortunately for their relationship, it'll just be a Simcha Bat, not a bris.

In honor of the return of Indiana Jones, Melissa and I have gotten quite adept at pulling the idol trick from the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Ruth is having none of pacifiers (communist). But, it often works to calm her for someone to put a finger in her mouth to suck on (she has not yet mastered the art of sucking on her own fingers). This, unfortunately, puts a damper on whatever else you might want to do with your time. But we've found that, if you're quick enough about it, you can slide one finger out and slip another finger of similar size - but attached to someone else's hand - in, in that bare moment before she begins squalling.
