Richie Doesn't Like Inari Zushi

Richie and I found ourselves up early this morning.  I gave him one of Ben's lanterns to play with.  He could push the button, and this amused him for quite some time.

After an hour, without ever leaving the couch, he fell back asleep.

After a short nap, I offered him some Cheerios. Richie likes to look at my camera.

When I say we were up early, what I actually mean is that we had gobs of time before Papa woke up.  The heat hadn't switched itself on, so I used the fireplace to keep us warm.  Richie is easily amused.  Flaps on boxes, buttons, switches, even occasional toys can hold his attention for quite some time.

He thought he was hiding from me.

Once the sun came up, I decided this was a good day to clean my little balcony.  Richie was being very daring to step on the railing.

This little boy loves being outside.

While I worked on the deck, he climbed all over the chairs.

Sometimes life goes on even though we are tending.  I put Richie down for a nap and ran out.  I came home to this.  I could but won't explain why the furniture is moved, but Ben thought he'd get a headstart on the job when Richie woke up.

It was after 2 before we got around to lunch.  Richie was curious about the inari zushi.  Ben shared.  Richie said no way, Jose.

Richie and I worked in the front yard while the sun was on that side of the house.  Then I made the very bad terrible no good decision to give him a bath.  He hated every second.  Then he was very unhappy when I wanted to finish the job Ben started, which meant vacuuming.  I thought headphones and Daniel Tiger would help.  I was wrong.

However, when Ben helped me fold up the rug, Richie was all over helping us.

Later in the evening, Mommy took a break from the hospital to get a Richie-fix.  No one has ever been happier to see his mommy.
