The Jimmy Carter of Infant Two

When I picked The Boy up from baby school one of the teachers told me that two of his classmates, Caroline and Hailey, had been fighting over a toy piano today. Conrad walked over, picked up the piano and handed it to Hailey. His ruling held.

Conrad's first snow day

We had a couple of inches of snow overnight so we're home having a snow day. I was anticipating a "Hoohoo!" when Conrad saw the snow for the first time, but his reaction was a little more restrained, although he did seem fascinated. He seems to be following his pattern of observing and evaluating before coming to a conclusion. Maybe after he wakes up from his nap he'll deliver a verdict on snow.

For those relatives living in northern climes, before you launch into a diatribe about how wimpy we are in the South when it comes to snow, here is my standard answer:  We don't have chains, we don't have snow tires, we have, like, ten plows for the entire state and this only happens every couple of years, so we can afford to shut everything down.

And the socks you rode in on

Ordinarily a good napper, The Boy didn't seem like he was going for it this morning. After hearing him yawp and moan for 20 minutes or so, Jean went up with another small bottle to restart the going-down process. He had not only thrown his pals Sleepy Duck and Sleepy Sheep out of the crib onto the floor, but had removed and ejected his socks as well.

Christmas was an especially good day for the boy

Lots of family, lots of things to put in the mouth and lots of presents. Lots more photos on the Flickr page, too.
