I've had a to take a bit of a hiatus from blogging due to the fact that a hefty storm front came through the 'ville on Tuesday night, killing our electricity and, more importantly, our computer. It wasn't all bad, though, as our desktop was almost four years old and just about in need of replacing anyway. We've upgraded to a new HP laptop and, hopefully, will add a wireless router in the near future. I am still getting used to Vista, but so far it's pretty cool. It was one of those unexpected life things that can be a bad situation, but we turned it into a positive. I reminded myself to be grateful that we were not like the folks just a few miles from us who had a tree fall on their house.
The night before all that, however, Jonathan was having a great time with his wooden Pottery Barn Kids blocks. He got these from one of my co-workers before he was even born. They are some of the nicest wooden blocks I've ever seen. He is currently very much into stacking the blocks as high as he can.
As you can see, he is quite proud of his mad block-stacking skills:
When it gets higher than him, Daddy has to help:
Stacking blocks like this is such hard work that Jonathan had to take a time out:
Alas, gravity and wooden blocks are not friends:
Even the canvas storage bag is great fun:
Not too much else has been happening around here. Jonathan is doing FANTASTIC in his new bed. We have not had a single issue getting him to sleep in it and, since it's been a week since he moved to the toddler bed, I feel confident in saying that the transition was seamless. Jonathan never ceases to amaze me in his ability to adapt to change. Our last big hurdle will be potty training; once we do that, he will be a full fledged little boy. I am so proud of him as he grows up, but it makes me a bit sad, too, as he is definitely not a baby any longer!
