We are spending as much time as possible outside while the days are still warm and inviting. So far September has had the best weather all year. The days are mild and sunny; the nights cool and calm. It’s been perfect. We’ve even begun to see the leaves slowly changing color in a few spots! When we were outside today, I tried to get Brendan to sit nicely for me so I could take a few photos of him, but he wasn’t in the mood for cooperating. So instead I just took a lot of photos of him doing what he does on a normal day out in our yard.
It turns out that it didn’t matter that we never cleared out that part of the garden since nothing but our beans and one small tomato plant grew. I had such high hopes for my garden- oh well. We may get to eat a few tomatoes, if they ever ripen. They are still green and I’m praying that they hurry up and get ripe already before it’s too late. I want to make salsa!
Playing with rocks and sticks are a big part of his life and it’s a good thing we’ve got so many of them. I don’t think the young man who cuts our grass appreciates Brendan’s rock and stick throwing skills. He has to do a sweep of the yard before he can cut the grass to remove all of Brendan’s little gifts.
The rest of the time is spent running up and down the hill over and over and over. Sometimes he even does a lap around the house.
Now he is peacefully taking a nap in his crib. I’ve been thinking about getting him a real bed and I like the idea of it but not the actual process of getting him to learn to sleep in it and stay in it. Brendan doesn’t like change and resists it as much as possible. Anyone have any good tips?
