The Great Outdoors

As the weather has begun to feel more and more like spring we have found ourselves outside almost every day.  Whether it is crawling/walking around the backyard, digging in potted plants, or strolling down the street on his trike this baby loves the great outdoors. 

I often stop to pick up treasures for him to look at and talk about or pull him close to a flower to smell, which always makes him smile.  When being introduced to a dandelion for the first time, you would have thought I handed him the sun on a stick.  He was absolutely amazed at this fluffy soft little "bubble" and cherished it.  He carefully held it THE ENTIRE walk.  When we got to our house I showed him that the fluff could be blown which he thought was hilarious and then began to shake his to watch the seeds fly away. 
We had a little furry friend who purred and did circles around us along the way and certainly peaked Henry's curiosity.  He loves being outside, so much that the act of coming back indoors often ensues tears  on his sweet little cheeks.  So bring on the warm weather because we are ready to play. 


  1. Precious pictures of sweet Henry! When I gave Eli a dandelion, he immediately ate it. Needless to say, I haven't handed him another since...
