Our wee one turned two, and then we were blessed with a flurry of family from East to Mid-west. Amid the busy, I soaked in the moments as much as I could - it all went by far too fast.
Despite hours of practice, the candles were still SO hard to blow out.
Snoozing papa, and a little girl who misses him while he is at work. Despite his non-responsiveness, she kept bringing him toys. She even covered him with her "special pink blankie."
Ithaca Falls is where we take out-of-towners, when we can.
Then we pose them over & over for pictures.
Cousins are the BEST.
Oh, but so are Uncles (this one from Chicago).
Hunting for rocks & acorns to throw in the water.
Jumping on Mimi's guest-bed, before we re-instated the "no jumping on the air-mattress" rule.
Horsie from Pa.
Her VERY OWN Thomas!!!
Fall is such a nostalgic time. But for now, I savor & savor and leave words for another time.
Also, I hear a little girl upstairs, waking from her nap.
So blessed. So thankful.
