I’m so close to finishing up the year and getting so far behind each week! I am still posting the photos on a daily basis on my tumblr page here. And of course, if you are a friend on facebook, you see them pop up every day. I’m undecided if I will stay on tumblr or move somewhere else. But regardless, when this project is done, I will be on a brand new site still posting dailyish photos of our adventures. Just without all the stories and such..So much easier for me to stay on top of each day!
ok, onto the last almost 20 days!:
day 325: happy at the park.
this boy LOVES the park.. and he loves being chased… which is what Ryan was doing when I decided to get a grinning picture of him. This was actually the first try.. He was giggling and ‘running’ away from ryan with his giant ear to ear grin. So much fun!
day 326: a moment of stillness to watch the planes go by.
At the park again, this time kits beach, and watching all the planes flying by. He loves to point at them and say ‘dat dat,;,, “look at that mommy” is how I interpret it.. Sometime I don’t even hear the plane engines but he always does and always looks up, points, and watches them fly over head.
day 327: playing with cars
At my parents place and heading outside to get some fresh air. He just got these new car toys from his grandma and grandpa and was enjoying making them go ‘room room’ Which means vroom Vroom for those that don’t speak toddler..
day 328: window light.
Nothing too special about this photo. He was playing by our front window (which he does a lot of.. I realize i have a lot of window photos and might do a post just on that!). and I thought the light was nice, so stood up above him to take a photos. I’m sure he’s thinking ‘mom, why are you standing on daddy’s piano!?”
day 329: loves to cuddle.
He loves to cuddle! It is the sweetest thing ever! I just have to lie down and he’ll come crawl up on me, wrap his arms around and look up to give me a big grin. Not going to lie, I will often just randomly lie down on our floor throughout the day so he’ll come and cuddle with me ;).
day 330: Happy Valentine’s Day.
I am amazed that I got a picture with him holding the heart right side up. Out of 10 pictures I took, the rest were upside down, him looking at his feet, trying to eat the heart, stepping on it.. etc etc.. I actually was thinking beforehand that I didn’t care how he was holding it, it would be cute regardless… but there was 1 with it just right! Such a sweet little valentine!
day 331: beach walker.
We headed to the beach in the afternoon with some friends. Being obsessed with water, all I had to do was put him at the top of the sand, and watch him toddle all the way down towards the waves. I’m positive he would walk right in, if I weren’t there to swoop him up before he got there!
day 332: moose on the loose!
I love his moose hat! He wore it to the park in the morning and I took a few pictures of him exploring and playing!
day 333: duck duck
At maple wood farms for the afternoon, his favorites were the ducks. We bought seed for them and he enjoyed taking it out and throwing it for them so they would all come near.. and then he’d try and pet them and they’d scatter about again.
day 334: I wear my sunglasses.. inside.. while jumping on the couch.
such a goof! He thinks his sunglasses are hilarious! Every time I put them on he giggles and jumps about. I love the last one as well. After tiring him self out by climbing and jumping all over the couch, he plopped down with a big sigh of exhaustion!
day 335: afternoon shadows.
Going for a walk during a sunny late afternoon we stopped to play (which involved me chasing him..). I loved how his shadow looked in the late afternoon sun so took a few pictures.
day 336: a place to sit.
While making dinner I turned around to see him sitting on his blocks while playing with his other toys. I thought it looked pretty funny so took a photo!
day 337: running to greet daddy.
He loves to run down the hallway to greet daddy when he gets off of work. All I have to say is ‘daddy’s here!’ and he’ll get up and head towards the front door, and then taking of yelling happy yells all the way down the hallway. Pretty cute!
day 338: rarrr
another window photo.. this time playing with his dinosaurs. He loves to say ‘rarrr’ as plays with them. They are always sitting in are window (or on the floor) and seem to be his ‘spot’ to play with them!
day 339: teething boy.
Teething boys, make for not very happy boys. All his molars coming in, and up lots during the nights; I thought some fresh air might help a bit. It did, but you can still see in his eyes how much they must hurt. Poor little boy! I love this photo though. Even though he’s sad from teething, I love the emotion I can see in his eyes. Good news is that they’ve all come in now - yayy!
day 340: Happy Birthday daddy!
two pictures for today! One of a little sign we made for him (Brayden was practicing his letters all week..), and another in the evening of them blowing out birthday cake candles together. Although I’m sure he’s wondering just who this celebration is for anyways.. ‘what!? what do you mean it’s not for me!?’
day 341: little boy, big forest.
We spent a few hours in the afternoon at princess park. And as he was walking and exploring about, I took a few pictures of him. The first one was one of him eyeing up a big pond to his right that he wanted to go to and take a dip in. I was saying ‘no brayden, you can’t go that way, come this way’.. and he was debating what to do.. He ended up deciding a dip in a muddy, slimy pond was not that appealing after all and came back towards me.. smart boy.
day 342: peek-a-boo
A popular game around here these days!
day 343: puddle splashing.
At ambleside and in search of mud puddles to splash in. There is nothing this boy loves more then splashing in mud puddles.. No matter where we are, he can find the smallest amount of water on the ground to splash his feet in. These ones were actually quite deep and as he got closer to the deep parts, I would have to pick him up and bring him to the beginning of the puddle where it was more shallow ! Now we just have to find him some rubber boots in his size and the deep ones will all be fair game!
