Silver White Winters that Melt into Springs

Curly was all better by this past weekend. It was just one of those weird things- a fever lasting 3 days and then back to normal. Not without freaking us out first, but we’re glad it wasn’t as horrible as The Roseola or as long-lasting as The RSV. We’re going on a little Spring Break vacation this Friday through Monday so fingers crossed that we all stay healthy for it.

One of the things that Curly has learned to do lately is putting objects inside other objects. Like stackable blocks or the shapes into the shape sorter box (but not via the lid…the lid is removed, chewed on, and then tossed to the side). This morning, I was finishing getting dressed when Curly picked up Nutella’s house slippers one at a time, and proceeded to drop them into the bedroom trash pail. It was absolutely hilarious to me (probably because they weren’t MY slippers), but of course, it dawned on me that we’re probably going to find all sorts of unexplained objects inside other objects and things being experimentally thrown out now. Hmm.

Curly also seems to be working on teeth #7 and #8, the bottom lateral incisors. He continues to clap at everything and very recently has begun to mimic us when we “sing”…which basically means we open our mouths wide and sing one drawn-out note. He will usually also sing a drawn out note in response, though he’s still working on his pitch.

Finally, now that the weather is getting marvelously warmer, we are happily purchasing his spring/summer wardrobe. Nutella bought something like 10 new short-sleeved onesies, and I’ve been bidding on (and sometimes winning) rompers on e-bay because they’re not as easy to find in stores. I think it’s safe to say I have a slight addiction to bidding on baby clothes on ebay now, just as I have an obsession with dressing Curly up in his new clothes. However, with the purchase of many new things has come a purge of the old things. I can’t believe how tiny some of them are!  Anyway, we think it’s high time for another Vermillion baby clothing contest, so look for that entry in the next day or two.
