As summer winds to a close, I wanted to tell you how much you have grown up in these last few months! You are talking a lot more, getting bigger and getting stronger each and every day. Pretty soon you will no longer be my baby boy and that makes me a little sad.
This was a summer full of adventure for you. You saw Elk, bear and a fox. Played at the zoo and went to the summer fair. Your first year on some of the faster rides. Your cousins came for a visit and you loved following the girls around for a while. Until you realized they didn’t want to play cars and trucks and trains.
Daddy took you for a hair cut – it’s very short now. I miss all your hair! Secretly we will grow it all back so those curls come out again. But *shhhh* … don’t tell daddy….
We all went to Clear Lake for a week this month and you loved playing at the playground, eating ice cream and going for walks. We couldn’t swim in the lake this year because of “the itch” – a bug that causes a terrible rash. We avoided playing in the sand too, just in case. But that was OK, you really enjoyed playing around the cabin. The last day we were there was the Park’s 80th birthday. The day had activities like trick or treating and in the evening was an outdoor concert by Glass Tiger – which may or may not have been mommy’s favorite 80’s band 😉 You LOVED it. Concerts are going to be your thing, I think.
I am excited to be a part of “letters to our children” blog circle with other photographers and moms. We write monthly letters in honor of our children and hope you enjoy reading them with us. Please head over to my friend, Joanne‘s blog for her monthly letter to her son.
