twenty-one months

little one,
its hard to keep up with how much you're changing these days - how more like a little boy (and less a baby) you seem to me. you seem to like this farm life very much and are quick to escape from eyesight  - much to our fright. You like the cats and dog best. Next maybe the cows and chicks. The pigs and laying hens are still a bit scary, what with all that grunting and pecking and flying at your face. You get yourself awfully dirty every day and I wonder why we even dress you at all! Its a good thing you love baths so much. Your adoration of cars/trucks/anything with wheels is still as fierce as ever. A trip to the thrift store ensures the car supply stays high. A few minutes after waking you usually hop down off the bed to inspect the line of up of cars I put out the night before on the bench-top. You surprise your papa and I with your comprehension of our requests, as well as your own initiatives like pointing up at the sky when I carry you to bed saying "night-night stars", proclaiming "aaaaameeen" when we say grace before dinner, putting dirty plates in the sink and hoisting yourself out of the tub to grab a towel to dry yourself! You delight us all with your waves hello and goodbye, even to just-made acquaintances. Darling boy, always hard at "work" exploring, dancing, vocalising, farming, making sense of this strange and wondrous world... thank you for being ours,
mama xx


  1. Such a beautiful life- thank you for your stories.


  2. Adorable!
    I don't comment very often, but I do enoy reading your posts so very much.

  3. So cute! I'm glad he has a chance to experience the life on the farm at such a young age. This is an experience so many children don't get to have.

  4. He is darling, with those deep eyes and copper locks. And he's so blessed to have such an enriched life on the farm! Think of all he's learning! xoxo

  5. Cannot wait to have more cuddles and car sings with that beautiful, beautiful, ruddy boy. xx

  6. Someday I'd really like to snuggle that wee babe :)


Thank you for reading! I do so love and appreciate every one of your comments even if I don't get a chance to reply.
