Forts are magical places.
Wednesday we had a very rare sight here in the desert. We woke up to a delightful winter storm and got some snow!
By the time we got bundled up to go outside, the snow had already melted, so we drove to the nearest town, which is right under the big mountains.
The Bundle was full of contagious joy. I was reminded of the awe and amazement “ordinary” things like snow can seem through a child’s eyes.
We stopped by a rural road to play in the snow. I will never forget this magical day.
The other day was one of those magical days that you want to remember forever.
These little kiddos were playing at Nana and Tata’s “farm”, some way or another they came up with the brilliant idea of tying the wagon to the bicycle…and that is where the magic began.
This, this is what childhood is about, learning through play. I was so in love with what my eyes were witnessing that I grabbed my camera and chased them around snapping pictures.
Children do not need fancy toys, all they need is the right terrain to sprout their imaginations.
Dispite the age difference among them, they came together to play and discover, the big ones taking turn on the bike, the little ones sharing the wagon and making sure everyone grabbed on. This, my friends, is free learning at its best.
I even joined the fun!
Today, Granola, you turned two months old. Sometimes I feel like I am swimming against the current, trying to reach the unreachable goal of slowing down time. I want to smell your sweet, milky breath and your soft, baby scent forever.
I dream an impossible dream of being able to hold your squishy self on my chest and feel your gentle steady breathing for eternity.
You started smiling this month and my heart burst with an uncontainable love every time you show your toothless grins. I have been on a mission to capture it to no avail.
Your chunky rolls are “coming in”, and I cannot wait to kiss them more and more. I am in love with your flat little nose bridge and your eyebrows.
As you become more aware of the world around you, we fall more and more for you.
You have completed my motherly love in an unimaginable way. I love you, you sweet little thing.
