My Bean. She is, in general, the quietest of my children and happiest to occupy herself with her imagination.
She’s never happier than gathering acorns, sticks, berries, or leaves.
Happy birthday, my beautiful Bean. May you always keep your innocence and love for life. It helps us all to be better people.
I can’t even believe my baby is one. The first year just flies by! He is such a loving little soul, full of antics, humming and giggles.
Soren is 8 today! All the kids had a chance to shop for him and were so excited to present their gifts.
The apple pie brigade. Christina really wanted to make him an apple pie for his birthday.
Agnes gave him way too many things to count, all wrapped intricately and taped with pink leopard print duct tape. Some of the items were a rock “Oh, wow, that’s a beautiful rock!” and one of Soren’s own cars “Wow, thanks Agnes! I haven’t seen that in like, a month!” And several elaborate cards with cutouts and drawings.
AND it was a popup!
Soren was quite excited to receive the hat she gave him.
A giant “cereal” bowl. (It’s the same type of bowl as we have for the kids’ cereal, only it’s a serving size. Jireh thought it would be hilarious to give it to him as a cereal bowl that would fit an entire box of cereal.)
All in all it was a great birthday and the apple pie was eaten to the last crumb before I could get a picture of the finished product. Happy birthday, my first son and wonderful helper with a sweet spirit, willing hands and a loving heart.
This sweet baby loves to get into things. He’s still cute enough that I just smile when he makes a mess of lids and bowls all over the kitchen floor.
He’s a climber. Loves to climb UP the slide.
He’s outta here… expert at getting off things, too.
Quite interested in Mommy’s zone exposure color chart.
OK, BACK UP A SECOND. Notice anything else? Yeah, that’s right, he’s standing unassisted!
And one more for eye candy’s sake:
Can you believe that in my next update he’ll be one year old?
