...he actually SITS in the rocking chairs too!!
(very rarely though...standing is just more fun!)


We have a tree in our backyard that apparently wasn't getting enough sunshine.  Until last summer anyways, when our neighbors cut down a huge tree in their yard that was shading this little guy in our yard.  Never had we seen these blooms...we didn't even know this tree would blossom like this.  But this morning, the girls and I looked out the back sliding door and saw all this brilliant red in our backyard.  I just had to take a picture.
And now I'm looking forward to every spring to see this tree in bloom again!

Are boys and girls different???


My girls were never interested in opening up cupboards or drawers and pulling out all the contents.  They never had the urge to climb up onto things without knowing how to get down first.

But Barrett...well, he's a different story!  Is it because he's a boy?  I'm sure that's probably part of it, just like I'm sure there of those of you out there that have had girls do these things or had boys who didn't.  In our house though, the difference between having girls and boys is HUGE.  Barrett is much more coordinated at this age than the girls, he's much more adventurous, but also more laid back.  He loves to climb, loves to make messes, loves to get messy.  I'm sure it won't be long before he's climbing out of his crib (cringe!!!) or outside searching for worms to scare his sisters with! 

Have I enjoyed having a boy after only knowing what girls were like???  OH. YES.  Very much so!
