"And here's where you put the battery in."

Here's a little video of Micah eating his cereal this morning--crunch, crunch, crunch. Today I created the invitations to Micah's 1st birthday party! It won't be a huge shindig, but we plan to have a few guests over who know Micah and my parents will be in town then. November birthdays are a tradition in my family. I can think of at least 4 other people in my immediate family that share this month with our son.

In this video, Micah is bobbing for his ball--I guess he's practicing for Halloween! We've had a busy week so far. Dan's still receovering from a sinus infection, Micah's getting over a cold and we're all battling the fleas that somehow managed to take over our house despite the fact that our cat doesn't even go outside! In better news, some Arkadelphia friends gave us a load of clothes for Micah that their sons had grown out of--all the way up to size 4! Now all we need is a snowsuit for that Wisconsin weather at Christmastime.

It's no secret that my favorite thing to dress Micah in is overalls. Not because they're easy to deal with (just the opposite sometimes) but they are so cute. Here are some photos of Micah in an overall and longsleeve outfit. We are having some chilly weather and this was just perfect for daycare today. Yes, he's back in "school" again after a couple days at home. Doc says it's another ear infection this time but he's not letting it slow him down too much. Now if we could just decide what to dress him in for his first Halloween!

Micah was fascinated by the rain on Saturday morning. We had a thunderstorm come through and he was glued to the window watching those drops fall and make splashes on the patio. He didn't much care for the loud thunder, though :-) Unfortunately, he's caught another illness and is at home today with a fever+. Dan's got a cold. Inouyes vs. The Bug--take 3. Our Sunday trip to Memphis, while good to get out, was punctuated by phone calls from our dutiful babysitter: "Should I give him the Tylenol now?", "He's not eating, how would you like me to proceed?" Let's just say it wasn't quite the relaxing day we'd hoped for. We're hoping it's a 24 hour bug.

"Didn't your mother ever tell you it's not polite to point?"
Yesterday when I picked Micah up and kissed his head, I smelled a familiar scent. No, not the daycare worker's perfume...frosting. The fact that his hands were blue confirmed my suspicions. Someone had had a first birthday and all the kids ate cake that the mom had brought in. Well, I wasn't too happy. Dan and I had decided that Micah wasn't going to have cake until his first birthday in ths spirit of saving some "firsts" for us and also of delaying that addiction we all have to refined sugars. Instead, I picked little pieces of vanilla cake out of his hair while I oohed and aahed over the daycare teachers cell phone photos of Micah covered in blue frosting (before their attempts at wiping him clean.) You can see a bit of the frosting in his hair that we could not remove in the first picture. To the daycare's credit, I just didn't think to tell them not to feed him anything that we hadn't supplied from home, and I guess they thought a little nip wouldn't hurt. At the end of the day, I figured, let him eat cake. I mean, you're only young once :-) And who wants to be the only kid on the block without the "cool blue stuff" that you can eat? We'll just have to make sure when it comes time for Micah's 1st birthday, the frosting isn't of the indigo variety.
This second picture just illustrates Micah's love for pointing at everything and anything.
