Remembering when…

We miss you Maeve… we miss your sweet smile, your ability to make us feel like everything was going to be just fine, your love for life, and your ability to want to grasp every moment you could and just dwell and dream of what was next. We are teaching Gress to say Maeve…come back!

Sleepy Head!

It is no fun to be sick. It is even less fun be attached to a sick 1 year old for 3 days. Luckily, Gress chose Rad, not me. THANKS GRESS! I actually got a lot done in those 3 days. Rad didn’t. In a sweet moment of Gress actually taking a nap, this is the only place he would lay…in his parent’s bed!

 

 

Remember when

Do you remember the last time you learned a life task? Well I don’t. Gressett learned to rock himself in the salvaged rocking chair today. I set him in it, he smiled really big and started rocking back and forth. Who knew? I better start learning some tasks myself or this little one is going to show me up! 

(P.S. this rocking chair was abandoned on the side of the road and Rad saved it, made it shinny and new again with the help of Grandma Mimi).

girls?

Sit him in the sand, he eats it. Sit him in the pool, he splashes around. Sit him next to a pretty girl, he has no idea what is going on. Gress, you don’t know how good you have it! Thanks Stella for sharing your pool with us.

Good night sleep?

As I look at Gress, and I can’t help but giggling at the puffy eyes and bed head, and I realize to a 1 year old, that means it was a good night’s sleep.
