Happy Halloween!

After his luxurious two-week vacation at home, Windsor has had a hard week trying to adjust to being back at school during the day. While he's been in a great mood, he just refuses to go to sleep. This means we get home from school/work and he conks out. The negative to this is that it's kind of like he's gone to college or something. The positive to this is that he's back to sleeping through the night.

All this week at his school it's been "spirit week." Monday was cowboy day, Tuesday was college day, Wednesday was silly sock day, yesterday was pajama day, and today is, of course, costume day! I want you to know I was a teeny bit late to work because I was trying to get these pictures off the camera and into the computer this morning, but I think it was worth it.

Cutest, friendliest lion ever!

Six Month Report!

Windsor turned six months old yesterday! Can you believe it? I can't.

He has ad to stay home from daycare for two weeks because of his stupid virus (the virus, RSV, takes 14 days to cycle through the system), but feels great and has enjoyed his vacation time with his Mom, Dad, and both grandmothers. He has had ample time to perfect his favorite activity, rolling around on the floor:

And I couldn't resist posting this one. He's just so bootylicious:

We also have six-month stats to report:
Height: 29 inches (99th percentile)
Weight: 21 lbs, 8 oz (96th percentile)
Head size: 47 cm (99th percentile)

And he's still off the charts in terms of cheeriness and chattiness.

Sick Day(s).

One of the creatures in this photo is sick with a nasty virus:

Hint: it's not the dead dog in the background.

Windsor has a respiratory virus that apparently takes two weeks to run its course, which is bad news for everyone involved. He is still in good spirits, though, and has spent most of his time rolling around on the floor (the man cannot stay on his back these days) and saying "rah rah rah ba ba da da da ra ra ra."

I took a couple of super close-ups of him yesterday. There were some nice, normal ones, but this one cracks me up:

More Proof He's a Genius!

One of the reasons we love Windsor's daycare -- er, nursery school -- so much is its emphasis on art. Sure, he's a baby and all, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have creative urges. Check out this photo of Windsor's first painting, still hanging on the wall at school.

In the middle, I clearly see a baby in the fetal position with an acorn squash hovering above it. To the left, we have the artist's initial (kind of sideways) and an airplane.

Excellent photo taken with Jeff's camera phone.

Baby Genius.

Last night as we were getting dinner ready I propped up Windsor's bottle in his bassinet on a wad of blankets. When I looked over at him a minute later, I saw this:

It might've been a fluke, but until I know for sure I'm calling GENIUS on this one.

Big Day for the Big Boy.

Here are some photos from this afternoon's post-church photo session.

Soon after these were taken, Windsor ate most of a jar of applesauce, drank a bottle, and then knocked himself out. (We've revisited solid foods with great success this time!)

Thursday Night Report.

Windsor has been crashing hard in the evenings when we get home from work/school, but last night he graced us with his presence for a few hours before conking out again.

After the entertainment portion of the evening was over, we had a bath, after which Win showed off his new skill: foot-eating.

Have a good weekend!
