what does spring 2011 & parker have in common?

they're both playing with my emotions.

we had a gorgeous day here in the pnw & although i'm still feeling pretty under the weather {strep throat! yuck!} & it may have been the drugs talking, i felt good enough to bundle parker & i both up & head out for our first official walk of spring 2011.  three straight days cooped up in the house was too much.

there were lots of signs of spring on our walk.  the sound of lawnmowers, birds chirping, the smell of fresh cut grass, cherry blossoms overhead, newly bloomed daffodils, & p-ray & i both wearing hoodies as opposed to rain coats.

but it was a bit of a mistake, me trusting seattle weather like that.  we got three-quarters of the way around our block & it started to rain on us.  awesome.  but at least i got to snap a couple spring-ish pics first, ya know, so we could remember the high points.



and how is parker playing with my emotions you ask?  ummm, because each day i seriously wonder if this kid could possibly get any funnier, or any cuter, or any sillier than the day before.  and somehow he still does.  do i say this too much?

have i turned into that mom who thinks her kid is like, the smartest kid in the world?  or that each time he does something new, it's the most amazing thing ever?  ummmm, yeah.  guilty.  i'm that mom.  because...





...c'mon.  how many kids can pull off the "one-handed-single-eyed-peekaboo" maneuver & then follow it up with the "toothy-side-eyed-smile" as smoothly as p-ray?  not many my friends, not many.

a sidenote:  ya like the look of that little sock puppy that's kinda half in the picture?  then make sure you've entered my giveaway for a similar sock animal from turtle & rye!

  9. Oh, the ups and downs of life. It's so funny when they all happen at once! The rain is wearing on me too. The toothy grins are definitely an excellent anecdote.
