Izzy got her hair cut last Friday and it was definitely needed. She looks like a brand new dog. Now I just need her mane to grow out some 😉
One of Liam’s favorite things to do these days is play with Legos. This afternoon he was using the fire station as a landing zone for his “spaceship”.
Today is Star Wars day (it also happens to be a very special day for a set of twins we know). So May the Fourth be with you!!
Made it to double digits today!!
Today we celebrated Micah and Noah’s birthday. After all the playing and Lego building, Jonah (M&Ns older brother) and Liam sat down to the piano to play.
It has been pretty yucky and chilly out today so I was able to get a photo of Liam during snack time this afternoon.
I had a rare cloudy morning to myself today so I took another trip over to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to take my photo of the day. It was nice because I could actually take my time to view some of the gardens without a little 4 year old pestering me to keep moving. They were starting to take out some of the tulip flower beds and some of the other flowers aren’t quite in bloom yet, but overall it was a pretty morning walk.
Last night, Liam decided he wanted to start playing with the Lincoln Logs he got for Christmas. We had put them away for awhile because he didn’t know exactly how to build with them since he was so used to playing with Legos. I was a little skeptical last night that I was going to end up building everything for him (and I did end up building a lot), but there was just something that clicked for him and he ended up building a couple houses. He even asked if we could play with them again this morning.
There are times that Liam just amazes me with his creativity. Today was definitely one of those days. He started by making a small house (pictured below). And then he turned it into this huge farm. All the little logs that you see standing up are different kinds of animals. He was so proud of himself and even asked me to take a picture of it. I can’t wait to see what else he’ll create with this “new” toy.
I promise that one day I will take a photo of something other than Liam for my photo of the day. But for now he’s my muse. Portraits are my main focus right now anyway so it makes sense that I would photograph what I know. I plan to have a few monthly challenges for myself so that I step out of my comfort zone. However for now, I’ll keep taking pictures of Liam for as long as he’ll let me.
This morning we ventured over to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to check out some of the flowers that were in bloom. To my surprise they actually had the Butterflies LIVE! exhibit going already. We spent the morning exploring the gardens and checking out some beautiful butterflies. One even landed on Liam’s head but was gone before I could snap a photo. Here are a few other photos from our morning.
