We do the laundry together-he rides in the basket up and down the stairs.
Cook together--this big spoon and a top ramen package are his favorite toys right now.
Mailing packages, and babies.
Going to the store.

Later that night I decided to make some Ovaltine before heading back to bed for the third time. I poured a tall mug of cold milk and set the microwave for 2:30 (the perfect ovaltine setting). When the timer went off I opened the door to find nothing inside and a mug of cold milk still on the counter. Yikes! I put the cold milk into the microwave and two minutes and thirty seconds later pulled out a still chilly mug. Farewell 40$ microwave.
Despite kitchen disasters things are great--the weather has warmed up again and we have spent some fun days at the park:
What is with this crazy weather?
Also, on Halloween we finally figured out how to keep him occupied and happy.

I am not sure if the rolling over milestone counts when it is unintentional. He does not seem to think it is a big deal. We have been going for a lot of walks because the boy demands constant motion. He has finally grown into his baby carrier and seems to like to be chauffeured in it.
Pretty impressive huh.

The leaves are just beginning to change and the weather with them. That is a great excuse to wear a multitude of cute hats. Surprising--I know!
It seems less shocking when you get used to the idea.

Approx 4 second later:
He is also starting to look more like a boy than a blob and has a few characteristic looks that he gives us. This one is "mildly impressed"
I am pretty sure he is asking, "okay, what tricks are you going to perform for me next?"

We have been really happy with our apartment. It is located pretty close to the school and near a couple of cool parks. It is also two different shades of green. The apartment is pretty cozy and we have liked everything about it except the dead mouse behind the fridge.

(note: our child is not bleeding--it is tie dye.)
He was looking pretty good in a tie and a onesie.

Here is David all ready for a day of fun--which means sleeping in his carseat.
David has also started to give us semi-genuine smiles. Since his usual facial expression is either suspicious or mildly disgruntled, the smiles are a nice change--even if they are fake. This is either a smile or an impression of a pirate.
He has also started using stealth to sleep longer.
Our new bedroom is not nearly as dark as our room in mesa, and Stephen likes to sleep in absolute darkness. I made him a sleep mask which has been effective. The look I was going for is "insane fox".
Dad also mentioned he would like a statue for the Secret Garden. We will be sending this one to him shortly.
