A Few

It was kind of this kind of week...

And this...
Every week has a little beauty, though.

 Jose took out some serious branches with a chainsaw. I think he enjoyed it. I was afraid the entire tree would be gone once he got going!
Griff practiced listening to headphones in preparation for our flight to Charlottesville.

The Most Important Photos of the Week

It's been an emotional week for all those who love the Smith family. But, it is also a week of great joy. We are so happy that Crosby is here. We are so thankful he is such a fighter. And, we are so excited to know him. Grow, Crosby, grow!
We can't wait to see you in a week and a day!

For Sam

Griff is a solid walker now. He somehow decided that kicking a ball should be learned right along with walking. Jose was really excited about it...as you can hear. It's pretty funny.

Pesto...presto

Gone. That's all I can say about how Griff felt about pesto pasta. He chowed it. It was his first time eating pesto and I was a little unsure about how he'd feel about it. Courtney had inspired me to try giving to him when she blogged about how much her kids adore it and devour it. So, I followed her advice and made an alternative pesto...no basil or pine nuts. Mine was arugula, parm, walnuts, salt, pepper and olive oil. Mmm. Tiny, green pieces of pasta were everywhere...hair, chair, floor, table.


So, my blogger and aperture weren't getting along last week...these are my photos from the last week and a half.

Griff still wearing Christmas pajamas, playing in his table house. We keep it folded up in the laundry room...it's a smidge wrinkly.

He's been pulling the cushions and pillows off our living room furniture. At first, I thought he was going to make himself room to sit on the actual furniture. He just wanted a reading cushion.

The seeds are planted safely in their trays. I'm so excited for our consistently warm weather. The garden beds just look so ready to be worked. Thanks to my friend, Laura, for introducing me to leeks. I love them now and am trying to grow them for the first time.


Today Griff and I played outside in the front yard. He was walking and crawling all over the place. Then, I discovered that our yard is covered in goose poop. This resulted in prompt removal of Griffin's clothes and washing of hands. Isn't he adorable mostly naked?
