Simon at the piano again

He really does like playing. Also, he's taken to attempting to put a variety of toys on the keys, which doesn't go over quite as well with Daddy. He likes playing cluster chords - take, for example, this shot, where he's playing every pitch in the C Major scale. Learning his theory too, I assume. Posted by Hello

Simon on the swing

We got this free swing from the neighbors down the street. Posted by Hello

Simon and his soccer outfit

It's strange how you end up with whole outfits that kind of match, even though the parts come in bit by bit from a variety of sources. Note by the way how different his hair color looks from mine (don't ask what was going on with my hair there, just know it was a windy day). Posted by Hello

At the piano

And here we have an action shot - Simon really likes playing the piano, as you can tell. He progresses from bass to treble and off the end onto the floor! Posted by Hello

Crawling to the camera

"Hi there!" -- Simon looks a little warm in this winter coat, but we have had some quickly-changing weather. One day it's 50 degrees, next day it's 40 and raining, next day there are 3 inches of snow and it's 18 degrees... Posted by Hello

Yeah, we finally got our camera back!

We had a rough time with Canon, but finally, our camera is back in hand and in good shape, as you can tell from these fine flower photos. Posted by Hello

Eating carrots

Simon is really enjoying feeding himself. He likes to attempt to eat his food with his hands, and is quite good with Cheerios, but not quite as good with "messy" foods like mashed carrots. Still, he has a good time and does manage to eat some of it. He even does fairly well at getting the right end of a spoon in his mouth, although it usually ends up on the floor seconds later. Posted by Hello

Simon -- Again!

I posted both of these because you really get a chance to see Simon's facial features here. Posted by Hello

These are certainly good views of his who-knows-what-color-but-they're-certainly-striking eyes. Posted by Hello

"My car"

This little car has become one of Simon's favorite toys. It's interesting how they take to liking certain toys for certain reasons--he suddenly took an interest in wheels and hasn't given that up yet. He'll turn it over and just spin the wheels round and round. Sometimes we think he's ready for "The Dukes of Hazzard" because he likes to roll the car over as though he's rolling a log. Then again, maybe not :) Posted by Hello

Hello there!

Simon likes eating. His pediatrician has given him clearance to eat almost anything, but a good bottle now and then is certainly still a favorite. I think he has started figuring out how to wave, because he'll put his arm up in the air like that if you wave at him (sometimes). Posted by Hello
