Ripples - A week or two ago, I was walking home and I passed a tree stump near our house. The tree was a big one; one Grant likes to try his luck against regularly. I noticed that the tree was actually rippled under the bark. Like a book dropped in the bath and left to dry.
Playground - It’s still chilly when the sun isn’t out, at 52 degrees, but we can’t resist going to the playground.
Little guy - My little guy looks so little when he sits all alone, getting his hearing tested.
Sneak attack - Yesterday Grant told me that his toy was under the couch, and could I check for him? We had some precedent for this, since we had earlier found a beloved toy under his bed.

Kitty cat cuddles - He likes to hold Socks for a bit, and give him some nice pets. Then he lets him go and pushes him off the couch.
Cuddlefest - Bright, cold winter days lend themselves to cuddles.

Haircut - Grant’s first real haircut went surprisingly well. He was bribed with peanut M&Ms. He looks like such a little man, instead of a little maniac. 😭
Closer - Henry wanted a photo series where he got closer and closer and closer.
Thinking face - Grant is thinking “how hard should I hit another human with this hair brush?” And he settled on “fucking whale” one second later.
