It's getting darker earlier here now and the evenings have a bit of a hibernation feel about them. After Elroy has his dinner there is usually time for him to have a play and run around. He has been dropping his afternoon day sleep lately (and barely sleeping at all on child care days), and so is rather tired at the end of the day, but he is not one for getting cranky and grizzly. Instead he can get a little silly, the tired sillys and a bit giggly. He has also, much to his pride and delight, worked out how to climb onto the couch and armchairs, so on this particular evening he was enjoying hanging out with part of the vacuum cleaner (he LOVES the vacuum cleaner) on the sofa. I love these little things.
