Big man here got to try riding a balance bike last week. I think he could walk faster than he rode and spent a good deal of time leaning side to side and yelling that the bike was wobbly. 🙂 I couldn’t resist sharing a recent family picture that my brother captured for us. My baby lives in that carrier every day and for every outing. I love that we have this picture to remember this time.

Imperfection is this week’s theme. This week was also my girl’s first ballet class. Fitting, eh?

Twice a day we get really pretty light in our backyard. At sunrise on recent morning, I enticed my boy outside to show off his “Captain Baby.” He even obliged me with one of his adorable smirks. And, of course, some boxes/cars/airplanes made their appearance. Off to another corner of the yard at sunset for some more pretty light.
This is a smile he usually reserves for his siblings. I can get my little mister to giggle and sometimes to laugh, but when his two older siblings bounce or dance around him, this guy just lights up. And, that is how I know that he has six teeth! Also, for those photographically curious, here’s a tip. This photo was taken in our garage. For some amazing light on your subjects, let them up right at the edge of the… Read more »
