– Ralph Waldo Emerson
We’ve been working on a new (improved) nap schedule the last few days. Which leads to what I like to call “the witching hour.” That time when Carter should have gone down for a nap, but would have slept till bed time. And who does that (I’d like to)? Typically, I fill that time with a bath or some other nonsense. On Sunday, since Daddy was home, we all went to the park by our house. It was cold. It was raining. But Scott can make almost any kid laugh in almost any situation.
It’s a gift. He has woo’d all of our nieces and little human friends with his silliness.
Some of them (abby) will call my cell phone and demand to talk to him. When I tell them he’s at work there’s a (ho-hum) “oh” followed by awkward silence. Then a prompt from the adult voice behind the phone “tell anKim you love her!”
It’s really pretty entertaining. It’s one of my favorite features of my husband. I now have a few tricks up my sleeve and can get them to engage me on the phone.
But I’ll never have the skills of my husband in ‘make any kid laugh in any situation’ department.
Did you notice Carter’s been sitting up all this time? He sat all by himself through the whole photo shoot (3.273 minutes or ~175 pictures).
He also cut three teeth last week. THREE! One on top, two on bottom. He does not like to show them off though.
He’d far prefer to stick his tongue out at you and blow raspberries.
He also loves to do 360 rolls now. You set him down and off he goes.
Today, he learned how to open drawers. I fear for what is to come of my house.
It is not very organized to begin with. Add to it someone little who likes to open drawers and doesn’t like to put things back.
This is why I’ve been making more progress on his playroom downstairs. I’ll put up some foam walls and just plop him down there, right? No? Hm.
Hope you enjoyed our trip to the park on Sunday. Spring is making itself present in small doses, but they are bright and pretty doses! Bring on summer, already!
