Oliver turns five months old tomorrow. He’s starting to sit up, and likes to play with his feet. He slept through the night a couple of days ago, which gives us some hope that “this too will pass”. I still wouldn’t characterize him as an “easy” baby, but every week brings some progress and he becomes more fun.
Maggie dressed up as a witch for Halloween. We hyped up the evening, explaining that she could get candy (CANDY!!) by going to neighbors houses and saying “trick or treat!” After three houses, though, she had had enough and wanted to go home. We spent the rest of the evening answering the doorbell and giving out candy to other kids instead. None of the pictures I took on Halloween night came out very good, so I’ve uploaded a picture at the zoo where they encouraged the kids to come dressed in their costumes instead.
When Daylight Saving Time expired, our Tivo was off by an hour and we recorded Barney & Friends instead of Sesame Street. Maggie got a taste of Barney, and now her calls for Elmo have been supplanted by Barney. Ugh. It didn’t take long for her to start listening to music that drives me crazy.
