Year 2 Day 271: ...Where The Green Grass Grows
Ryan and I spent the morning down in the garden listening to the birds and sounds of people over at the park, just past our back fence. We had the perfect little shady bit and luckily we were out in plenty of time before the heat and humidity kicked in.
I also used it as a sitting practise/photo shoot opportunity for his 6 month pictures. We're also planning on taking him in to Mothercare to Pixiefoto as we have a voucher for a free portrait.
Ryan also felt grass for the first time with his hands and feet. I had to be careful since he's quick to grab and gob. Matt caught him yesterday when trying to show him the apples coming in on the apple tree. Without warning he snatched a leaf off the branch and nearly shoved it down his throat. Not the kind of solids I'd like to encourage him to eat.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
