Ave, Lee!

Lee Farrand, biologist extraordinaire and a relatively new entrant in the Great Fatherhood Game, hilariously describes how he assesses his daughter, whom he nicknames Baengy:

May Thor strike me down for doing so, but I've been roughly estimating Baengy's developing intelligence levels in comparison to familiar animals. As a keen biologist and animal enthusiast, [I find] it's an irresistible temptation. At the time this photo was taken, I estimated that her quiet blank stare was indicative of the IQ of a turtle. Nowadays, she's closer to a domestic cat.

We're expecting a baboon within the next few months.

Go visit his marvelous blog (245 members and counting!) to see the pictures and have a laugh.
