When the days are like this weekend, long and sunny and with that warm breeze, when you can literally see the leaves shooting out of their branches, the birds in the forest are going nuts with excitement and we just bimble around on our farm, working a little, playing a little, well then life is really good. This weekend was one of those.
And look! My Dad The Amazing Carpenter is building a deck in our back garden! How cool is that!
A certain someone Super-cute has definitely left the newborn-phase behind and has started to explore the world around him, which both breaks my heart and makes me want more, more, more. Hello, world!
So today, two big things happened: He started grabbing things on purpose - and he laughed a proper little laugh!
The first thing he tried to grab, was a pen, and the second thing was actually a piece of paper, so Mr. Payne smartly noted that the boy is trying to tell us something. Or, that one day he will be a writer (I choose the latter). What made him laugh, you might ask. Well, that was his own reflection in the mirror. Analyze it as you wish.
Greetings from a very proud mama!
