Jacob Has a Tooth
It seems a little odd posting for the first time about my baby son over
eight months after he was born. This log simply went into stasis, first
being hosted on a server no longer accessible to me, and then effectively
neglected for lack of time.
Nonetheless, Jacob Elliot Suwalski was born on January 28th, 2016, and is
now about eight-and-a-half months old. While we were out today doing a photo
shoot in our colourful autumn surroundings, he became unusually grumpy, and
seemed to be in real physical pain. Teething being a real possibility, a
quick check confirmed that his first tooth had just broken through the gum.
The internet tells me it's his lower left central incisor. He is developing
It's a good thing he is well on his way into solid foods.

With the inherent convenience of Facebook, I've managed to ignore the log
for a few years now. It was never my intention, it just sort of went that
way. I think it's time to change that.
The problem with Facebook is that I've never felt it's a great place to
dump my thoughts, where I'm comfortable writing paragraphs on end about a
specific subject. Most people will skip over longs posts in their feeds too
see the cute cat meme below. I have also held back some ideas, because it's
not polite to put something up that some may find offensive, while others
"like." With the Facebook model, I'm broadcasting an idea, placing it in the
feeds of people who may simply be angered by it. Here, on my own server,
anyone reading actually has to seek it out. This, in turn, is possible,
because search engines like Google do index the content, like any other web
page. Throw into the mix recent stories about Facebook and Twitter
censorship, and all in all, posting here seems like a better use of my time.
So, long live the blog.
