Spring Blossoms

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I love watching the garden come to life each spring.  Some places where blooms edge out from the dirt are almost forgotten after a long, cold winter, serving as a sweet surprise after the snows begin to melt.

As the days lengthen and the temperatures rise, we begin to spend more time as a family outdoors, so I'm sure this won't be last signs of the season that I snap.

Happy Easter

'Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees filled all the air with fragrance and with joy. - Henry Wadworsth Longfellow

Blanket Boy

Saturday, April 19, 2014

I'm pretty sure I've posted before about my boy's love of his blankets.  He never really took a pacifier, but from very early on he developed an affection for his thin muslin blankets.  They serve as a comfort when he is sad, provide him laughs when he is happy and keep him company when he sleeps.

And sometimes I think we must have ghosts, when I remember I just have a two year old who loves to wander around the house with a blanket covering his body.

Dinner Out

Friday, April 18, 2014

I'm trying to get better about being willing to pull my camera out even when the location isn't ideal and the lighting isn't perfect in order to capture our everyday lives away from the house.  It can be intimidating thinking people are watching you when you have the camera out, but I need to resolve to be ok with that in order to capture more moments with my family.

Tonight we went out to Wahoo's for dinner and my baby boy just seemed like such a big boy sitting in the booth without a booster seat eating his dinner and goofing around.

We've had play-doh in the house for months in hopes that the little guy would take to making and creating, and until recently he would admittedly tell us he wasn't interested.  Now, if you ask if he would like to play play-doh he quickly says "ok!"
