"You will be a better mom because you are a theologian, and a better theologian because you are a mom."

Is it true? In this blog, I explore the interplay and intersection of motherhood and theologianhood.

Happy Nine Months!



Nine months is a big one! It marks the time when a child has been outside the womb as much as inside. Well, Eva was a couple days late, but nonetheless, you get the picture. Anyway, at nine months, Eva:

(bear)crawls quickly, walks with a walker, pulls up to standing, waves, says "hi," laughs really hard especially at Maia, nurses acrobatically, self-feeds Cheerios etc., drinks water out of a sippy cup, throws things up in the air, makes strangers smile, pulls books and other things off of shelves, tables, etc.

And she really prefers Mom to anyone else.

Oh, and did I mention she flawlessly plays complete sonatas on the piano while solving quantum mechanics problems in her head, which she then explains using classical Greek? That Eva, she's really something.

You do know that that piano has a demo button right? That doesn't explain the greek.

Ha, ha... yes, Eva turned on the demo by herself the other day, but I figured it out pretty quickly. After all, Eva plays with a passion that far surpasses the music library demo.
