THEY ARE SO HUGE.
( photographic proof )
Kindergarten seems to have gone well; he made a delightful self-portrait, and he was cheerful though very very tired this evening. (SteelyKid's an old hand at this now and is also doing great.)

Yesterday afternoon, Chad's parents picked the kids up (both kids; their first overnight with the Pip without us there).
Last night, I stayed late at work, had a lovely dinner out, fought Quicken into admitting that my account was too reconciled, cleaned off my desk of a week's worth of mail, took all the ornaments off the tree and put them away, and then slept so soundly that my back is stiff this morning (apparently my body is no longer used to sleeping the night through and, I don't know, doesn't automatically move or something any more?).
The only bad things about this are (a) look how adorable they are! and (b) I am worried about inflicting the Pip's variable sleeping ability on people not used to it . . .
But as changes of pace go, on the whole pretty nice. Now, pack and dress and off for a whirlwind vacation.
In a word: walking.
Note the upraised arms; this is obviously because we held his hands as he learned, but along with the smiles and laughs of delight, always remind me of the arms-up-yay emoticon: \o/ !
Also, SteelyKid has discovered the joys of hunt-and-peck typing on the keyboard (also knows the functions of the caps lock, delete, enter, and space bar keys, though she has an idiosyncratic approach to white space) and has started emailing her friends via their parents. Seriously. I wonder how soon she can learn touch-typing . . .
Two things from this afternoon:
I was watching the extras on the Avengers DVD and I note that Tony Stark is listed as CEO of Stark Industries only through 2010 (on the dossier in the Steve deleted scene). Fanon that Pepper remains CEO is hereby supported (though not technically confirmed, but still, who else would it be?).
Earlier the Pip was a bit unhappy so I put him up on my shoulder while the last minute of the Colbert Report segment I was watching finished, and then he was really limp so I walked over to the mirror to see if he was actually asleep. He wasn't, but the reflection reminded me of the picture in my icon, so I had to get a camera and take a comparison picture:
( two pictures )
Oh, and the subject line reminds me that about a month and a half ago Chad plotted his growth data, back during his blog hiatus:
( scatterplot )
My poor buddy is a bit under the weather, as that face may suggest, but pretty good-natured about it all the same.
And now I am going to see if he will sleep in his crib for long enough for me to do dishes and laundry and job-related work and all that lovely stuff.
