In Which Connor Is Huge
Putting him in the stander reminds me of just how tall he's getting; can you believe how big the kid is now? He just cut his first permanant tooth and everything. When you consider that when we moved to Washington four and a half years ago he was the size of a Cabbage Patch Kid doll it's kind of amazing how much he's grown. Oh, he's still tiny for a five year old of course, but he certainly doesn't look like a baby anymore!
He does, however, seriously need his hair brushed. That's what it looks like when he wakes up in the morning. He's kind of got that mad scientist vibe going, if you know what I mean. He likes to rub his hands together too, so it always looks like he's plotting world domination or something. It's pretty cute, but I still brush his hair anyway. I figure if he's going to conquer the globe he might as well do it with neat hair.
He and I did a bit more yard work today, but mostly we stuck to the indoors as it was gloomy outside. I'm not sure tomorrow's weather will be any better, but I'll have Joanna here for part of the day so I'll be able to work rain or shine without having to worry about the little guy. Connor wasn't very enthusiastic about any of the chores-- even the laundry, which is usually his favorite. I think I wore him out with his stander time and he was pouting because I made him work. Oh well!
