eager to learn


"How do helicopters turn?" "Where does our baby get it's food?" "How do rockets get into space?" "Why does our car go fast sometimes and slow sometimes?" His mind is so active and curious. So eager to learn. Several times a day I hear, "Mom, I have a question." Those words are music to my ears.

fall in the canyon

We went for a Sunday walk in the canyon. It was one of the few times I had been able to get out of the house after being bed ridden for the past few months with this pregnancy and it could not have felt better.

super hero

sometimes i can't stop myself from taking a few pictures of my kids when they are sleeping. i'm pretty sure i won't regret it either. what a good reminder of how perfect they are. the morning i took these she had been running around with her brother dressed up in batman costumes, shouting at each other about saving their babies and the world. i love how kids get so loud when it comes to pretending sometimes. he and she play cars and trains and kitchen and babies and i can't help but take back my wishes of one day having two girls or two boys together. they really do round each other out. but after a morning of  super heroes he went to preschool and she snuggled with me for a nap. she looked just as fair and feminine as can be. she'll be well-rounded for certain. she just turned three and she's showing it. getting so big by the minute. so independent and talking like you wouldn't believe. she really is a little super hero to me, such a life saver in such a real way, bringing so much joy to our family.

phone pics

i really am grateful for all of the conveniences of phone pictures. there are so many memories i've been able to capture that i would have missed otherwise. and it's amazing what those little camera phones can do. i wanted to slowly start putting them on the blog. there are so many that i don't want to forget. here are some of our last trip to California and some other random summer happenings. picking raspbet
