Weekends tend to be a mixed bag for our hero. On the one hand, he gets lots and lots and lots of time with Mommy and Daddy – never a bad thing. On the other hand, we feel sometimes that he gets a little bored by the end of the weekend, since most of his days are spent with a dozen other kids, activities galore, and of course his bevy of lovely ladies at the nursery.
So we do what we can to keep things interesting – lots of playtime and books, errands, trips to Colchester, strolls around the neighborhood if the weather is good, etc. This weekend the weather was decidedly not good, including some seven inches (and counting!) of wet, heavy snow that has fallen today. We didn’t want to take him out in the cold and the damp — yes, we’re overly cautious when it comes to keeping him out of the elements, but that infection he got in September scared the bejeebus out of us, and plus he’s got a slight cold these days, and we don’t want to risk it — so it was a weekend indoors for the poor lad. We were all a bit out of it on Sunday — he napped poorly and just seemed a little restless, or maybe we were projecting? — but on Saturday he was certainly full of beans. Here’s the young man showing off his walking skills, his love of household appliances, and so forth.
And as an added bonus, here’s the winter wonderland that is our back yard today, as of mid afternoon. (Click it if’n you want to see it bigger)
