Winston enjoyed some extra attention this weekend from good friend Stacey. He was pretty good during his daylong shopping spree on Saturday depspite coming down with a nasty virus. After arriving home on Saturday Winston's temperature spiked to 104.1. Amazingly he played and ate like nothing was wrong. Winston was seen by his peditrician on Monday and his blood work and flu swaps were negative. His ears were clear as well...so it looks like a virus. He did become a little fussy on Sunday and his appetite dropped, but it is picking back up. We did have a few nights of wanting to be held....all night long...which has led to an exhausted Mom! He has decided he wants Mom in the middle of the night and Dad to play with during the day....not fair. Hopefully we will be 100% for the upcoming Halloween parties and trick or treating! Other than the illness not much to report..although Winston has become a pro at throwing things. He things it is great fun to throw a ball and chase after it. He has also learned if he wants to get an object...or two.... from one room to another he can throw it, then crawl to it, then throw it again. Great fun!

Winston has been a busy boy the past couple of weeks. Last weekend he was able to see lots of friends and family, unfortunately it was for a sad event. We lost a special person who would surely of been a grandfather figure to Winston. On a happier note, Winston was able to help celebrate cousin Finn's and Granny's birthdays.
He continues to grow daily. He is eating more table food and wants to eat what we are eating. No steps yet, but he cruises around holding onto things and stands pretty well on his own. He loves to clap, wave and give 5....and play with anything he is not supposed to be playing with. Forget the cool toys that make noise and light up! He now has one top tooth in addition to his two bottom teeth and another top tooth that is almost in.

Winston has had a busy past couple of weekends. He spent the weekend before last playing with Granny while Mom and Dad spent a weekend with friends for the UNC game and for our anniversary. This was the longest I have been away from Winston. We both did great!
Last weekend Winston and I went to visit Weese and Tay-Tay during the afternoon on Friday and then had dinner with Granny and cousin Lauren for Lauren's 21st birthday. Happy Birthday Lauren! Saturday Winston played in Ahoskie and then came home with B while Mom and Dad went to a party. He was able to see lots of family!
Winston is getting his top two teeth in, which has led to lots and lots of drooling. He is standing for several seconds and walking holding on to furniture and my hands...but no steps yet. He is working on it though!
We will be missing Dad for the next few days. He flies out for Canada to go duck hunting tomorrow. We will miss him!
