You weren't too sure of it at first... but once you figured out it was just water, you loved it! I'm thinking that we are going to have to get the sprinkler out at our place soon!
I admit, I wanted to write these more often, but life has a funny way of sneaking in and things get away from me. I am trying to be better about it, but I can't make any promises that these letters won't happen with some time lapses between them.
My dearest boy,
Time has flown by and you are already two and a half. It's funny how those short two years have faded my memories of life before you were a part of it. I can hardly remember what it's like to just take off to someplace without thinking, packing and preparing before hand. I know that soon enough there won't be as much preparation to leave the house. I won't lie, it will be a bit of a relief not to worry about bringing what feels like half the house with us. But because you are all boy I know it will be awhile before I go anywhere unprepared.
Recently, you have developed quite a sense of humor. You know when you are doing something you shouldn't be, and when you are caught in the act you know how to put on the charm. It is so hard not to smile or laugh when you are being so cute. Your affinity to be naked has been getting the best of me lately. Especially when you strip and then come in to announce it to me. You have developed your independence and sometimes I love to sneak over to watch you as you play by yourself or with your dogs. You definitely keep life interesting!
I love you to the moon and back,
Summertime is here! You were showing off and trying to impress the girls at your cousin's birthday party. Brave enough to stand on the edge of the diving board, but not brave enough to jump (thank goodness!). I can't wait to introduce you to running in the sprinklers and water gun and balloon fights! Hooray for summer!
We took you to see Grandpa JD on Memorial Day evening. You went to his grave marker, and started jumping up and down and I could almost hear him saying hi and laughing at you. I know you will not remember him when you are older, but he always had such a soft spot in his heart for you. Once you got to his grave marker you stayed there for quite awhile setting down your car as if you were showing them to him. I know he is smiling down on us everyday. Rest in peace, JD and know that you are never far from our thoughts.
It may sound a little silly but I still get excited when someone sees something special like I do in an image I've taken. The photo below was featured in the Top 10 over at Love Photographs Beautifully. It was one of those instances where I was on my way home and the world around me made me stop and pull the car over to get a picture so I could remember it. I love how the sky looks almost painted on. You can see the rest of the images and the winner here. So go check them out and have a great week!
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
