A beautiful day

It was a beautiful day today so we went outside for the afternoon as soon as Rand got up from his nap (as a 21-month-old he’s doing really well with his naps. consistently sleeping from 1pm until sometime between 3 & 4)!  I was looking through some photos I took this afternoon and realized they were a great representation of this stage in the game.

Rand is such a little boy now!  I don’t know what happened.  We watch his baby video all the time (at his request) and I still think of him as that little baby.  Then I see these pictures and he’s all toddler.

He’s SO BUSY. All. The. Time. And it is great. Daddy is really nice and let’s him play in his car…one of his favorite things to do.

Rand also tries to do some things that he just can’t do yet but wants to…like riding this scooter. Almost…it won’t be long bubs!

We don’t go anywhere these days without these two – “Meow” and “tut-tull” – Seriously. They ride in the car, they sit next to the crib, they come to breakfast and they LOVE to go outside. Rand found them in the garage a few weeks ago and remembered them from last summer. They are having a much more exciting off-season than most pool floats I know of.

Lately, anything can become a horse. And this boy loves some horses.

This is the “cheeeeese” face. We need to work on it some.

There has been a language explosion in the past week or so. I have a feeling we are in for it. The kid knows what he wants.

He’s also a great listener still.

Thanks to a weekend project with Uncle Sam and Kristen (aka “Diddy and CeCe”), our trees all have bird feeders hanging from them.

“Bird seed” and “Tweet Tweet” have been added to the growing word list.

Here’s a proud face for making it up a step without having to hold on or crawl.

Oh and of course the drool continues. Does it ever stop? That is one thing I will be happy to grow out of!

Thanks for hanging out with us today!

    Anna, great pics– what camera/lens are you using? I’m taking a photography class so that I can actually use my camera in other than point/shoot so I’m just curious. I hope y’all are doing so well! love, lauren
