"A photo of my little man, once a week, every week, in 2014"
Reece, you are always collecting bits of nature. On our Sunday morning walk you brought along a little wooden box and stopped often to pick up treasures that you found.
for the 52 Project
He's a "thing finder" just like Pippi Longstocking!ReplyDelete
He is! And Pippi is in our pile of books, soon to be read. I can't wait to introduce him to Pippi :)Delete
For some reason the paved road seems insanely out of place!ReplyDelete
Hmmm...not sure why. This is the road we live on, well, we live at the end of it. It is a very quiet road, which I love because Reece can walk, ride and scoot along it :)Delete
Even my big guys still bring bits of nature home, I must always check pockets.ReplyDelete
PS- I nominated you for a blog hop :)
My big guy does too :) I think on our walk yesterday morning Justin picked up as many treasures as Reece :)Delete
I saw that Tracey, thank you. Will get on it this week.
I have the most wonderful young neighbors in my new neighborhood who are reminding me daily of how special it is to stop and look and be with very little ones. Everything is new and important and exciting. It refreshes the soul :)ReplyDelete
Yes, so very refreshing. And such wonderful lessons our little ones teach us.Delete
Does his room overflow with his finds?! Or do you manage to find ways of keeping them organised and under control? I think I'm expecting the latter response!ReplyDelete
Sometimes. We find ways to use them. We have a collection of rocks in a bowl on the coffee table that gets added to daily. Pine cones and rocks get added to our table centerpiece. He has a few collections in his room....rocks, bark, shells. We press leaves/flowers and use them in crafts. We also created an outdoor nature table, because there are some things that just don't come into the house :)Delete
I really enjoy getting to know Reece through your portraits. Such an eye for detail, love that he's always finding treasures!ReplyDelete
Awe, thank you Chrisy.Delete
We still have those kinds of treasure boxes shoved into closets, haven't had the heart to go through them and neither have my children. He is a treasure!ReplyDelete
Thank you Karen, I think he is a treasure too. I have a feeling my future will be the same, boxes of nature treasures tucked away. We don't have a lot of storage space though, so things do have to move out on a regular basis :)Delete
That is so lovely. I have always been a collector and it is great to share this passion with my children.ReplyDelete
Thank you. He certainly loves to collect things :)Delete
Ever find yourself looking at all the hats and just hoping that he will stay small just a little longer? Sorry, it's the new hat that caught my attention. It's that time of year again, isn't it? We pulled down Panda's hats and it tugs just a little to see what he has outgrown. Be well.ReplyDelete
I do. It is funny, hats are the one thing that I keep. Not sure why, but they seem to hold a lot more memories for me than the clothes. And that hat, not a new one, but one from last summer, that he decided to put on Sunday morning. It was a little snug, which had me thinking the same thing...slow down and just stay small a little bit longer, please.Delete
