We had a sweet little get together to celebrate Brooks turning one with Grandma Janie and Papa and Grandma Sally and Grandpa Dave and even cousins Emma and Ella! Brooks even showed his fledgling walking skills during the party. He is now full on walking and barely plays with toys anymore. His major self-entertaining includes picking up somewhat large objects and walking around with them and dropping them in random places only to pick up something different to walk around with. One year olds are a hoot.

I love this time of year in general, but this year has felt especially golden throughout and now that it is officially spring and we've been treated to a few cooperative days, I am encouraged and inspired.
There's so much that I often think or experience and I say to myself, "blog fodder!" but I am so undisciplined to sit and write. I used to write all the time! Not just on the internets, but in journals and notebooks and emails and letters. With an embarrassed lump in my throat I admit that I used to be a writer. Now I feel a bit numb and awkward as I sit here and try to pick out some words to say. Blah.
Don't call Dr. Phil, though! I'm not depressed or anything, I swear! I am a reader still. Maybe its just a season.
Anyway, this is all very droll, so lets talk current events shall we?
I wish I knew of a flowery, more expressive way to say it, but I'm at a loss: I just love my little family. I'm just so thankful.

Beau has been signing his name, in print or while typing, as Beau4 for the last year and now its time to update! I can't believe our little buddy is five. I can't imagine life without this all-boy boy. I would not know about the satisfying experience of Lego building. I would be far less versed in weaponry. I would miss crossing the street with my traffic-cop-in-training. I wouldn't know the joys of tackle hugs.
Beau you are a wonderful boy. I hope that you will always find a way to sit down with your mama for the occasional grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch that we both so appreciate. I hope to be an example of grace for you to follow since you are still a little miffed when things don't happen with justice perfectly measured. May this childish bent fuel a mature passion to see people treated with dignity and empathy.
Oh, our Beau. You are loved!

Here's a sweet little article, an encouragement to use my words wisely. What you say and how you say it can make all the difference.

|So similar looking these two are!|
|Crawled and pulled up pretty much the same week. |
Not sure this kiddo is going to be content to crawl for a long time. Boo.
|This kid loves his bath! Starts panting and lunging for the tub as it fills.|
