It feels like it has been spring/summer for well over a month. I think I wore my winter coat maybe 3 times this winter. It was way too warm and not much like winter at all, but since there is probably zero chance that we will have snow in March I have no choice but to embrace spring.
We have been out in the yard most days. Brooks is always tagging along with his gardening equipment.
He helps us move mulch . . .
he asks plenty of questions and offers advice . . .
he fills up the watering cans . . .
and sometimes spills them. Its nice that he is so content outdoors with his dad so I can get a break inside.
Speaking of spring, look what it has done to my backyard. The yellow stuff is pollen. It has covered EVERYTHING! It is disgusting and I really hope it rains soon.
Silas is now 9 months. I can’t believe it but its true. He now has 6 teeth!
Brooks has been asking to hold Silas a lot lately so I thought I would use this opportunity to take some brother pictures.
This usually starts out well and then . . .
Silas decides he would rather be in my lap than Brooks’.
Brooks tries to help by tickling . . .
but Silas doesn’t think its that funny.
Then Brooks tries some friendly wrestling . . .
definitely not working.
They are going to have so much fun together.
Silas still likes the bath . .
and is still putting everything in his mouth.
He is long and skinny (around 97th percentile for height and 25th -50th for weight) and he is now enjoying mostly finger foods (his favorite is still Cheerios).
Have a great weekend!
