The eager anticipation of biting into her first strawberry. Her little plant from last year is fruiting again, and every morning first thing she races out to check the ripening process. Now one seems to be ready every day, but nothing beats that first glorious bite!
I couldn't decide whether this should be Eli or Miles' portrait but decided to file it under Eli in the end. It's very quickly snapped but a rather precious moment. Just before loading everyone into the car on Sunday morning for church, I overheard singing and discover the kids in the newly mounted hammock (a popular spot these days!). Lily and Eli are rocking Miles, and singing his song 'You are my sunshine' as they gently sway the hammock. Miles is peacefully swinging, content in his role of beloved baby of the family. Lily and Eli are so devoted to this kid! Goodness, I hope he isn't spoilt rotten by all this adoration ;)
Dear Eli, what a beautiful brother you are. Just look at your little sibling, gazing up at you in total adoration. What a lifetime of brotherly adventure awaits you both!
A grubby little face that only a mother could love ;)
Mmmm, he is a beautiful mess indeed!
One coat of pasta sauce, one coat of chocolate mousse from the beater - yes, he sure loved every morsel!
His Saturday morning ritual, whipping up a batch of pancakes for the family.
