Lots of news! Teeth #7 and 8 have come in, now E has 4 on top and 4 on bottom. He's also become fond of Daddy recently, good news for Mommy :)
Here the little guy is reading a book by himself (that's also a new development, instead of always bringing his books over to us to hold them for him).
It finally snowed (a little), and Mr. Muffin helped me shovel today. He was even entirely bundled up - hat, winter coat, socks, shoes, and MITTENS.
E is eating with a combination of hands and silverware these days. Some meals he's keen to use his fork or spoon, and sometimes he's not. The spoon is especially tricky, because of course the food tends to fall off if he turns it upside down, but the past few days a lot more of the food has been making it to his mouth on the silverware! It's fascinating to watch him learn to do these kinds of things that are so easy to take for granted.
