Sunshiny day

 
After a week of weather forecasts calling for dreary with a chance of more dreary, the sun decided to pay a surprise visit to our neck of the continent today. Caroline, home from school with a cold, thinks its timing is all off, and has retired to her shaded room with a stack of books to flip through before her next nap/snack/game of Uno. James, on the other hand, thinks the sun is great. Here he is playing peek-a-boo with the light.

He's not always this smiley of course, and at nearly ten months has developed definite ideas about what he should be able to do. Climbing off furniture, hanging out with me, and playing with every toy that C shows an interest in are top priorities right now. Last night before C's cold struck, she and Will practiced sword fighting in the play room. They closed the doors to ward off the noise, but mostly succeeded in offending James considerably. Abandoning me to my book he crawled across the living room to bang on the doors and shout until he was let in and given another sword* to chew on while he watched.

*Lego makes great foam swords which Will and Caroline use to practice fencing with.

I agree with C - red does look good on him!

Oh! He's so big, and his hair's grown...and he has a cheeky twinkle in his eye.

Swords, in my opinion, are a must-have item in every playroom.

An incredibly short sun appearance but it did the trick and cheered me up no end.

Sun? What is this 'sun' you speak of?
