This week we harvested more veggies from our small (yet quite fertile) garden out back. J has so much fun in the outdoors, and it was clear that he felt so important helping Daddy pick tomatoes and peppers. He clutched one tomato the entire time we were out that evening, occasionally stopping whatever he was doing to very deliberately and seriously close his eyes and smell it (like he sees Mama and Daddy do).
The brisk air felt invigorating and we spent a good hour outside walking, playing, cleaning up the yard and picking up the "pokey balls" that fall from our birch tree.
Finally, Papa and Nina arrived with pizza and J raced back down the street and up the driveway to greet them.
