captain NO


Recently Bodhi has taken to announcing "NO" any time he does something he knows is probably not a good idea. He proceeds with abandon and once discovered he forms his lips into a perfect O and says "NO", then breaking into a breathtaking grin proceeds, undaunted, on his path of destruction.

play


We meandered our sleep weary selves over to the park today and had a marvelous time. Owen has become an expert swing slinger and can jump at the apex of a tremendous arc with mind boggling precision, most of the time. Occasionally, he estimates poorly and windmills limbs akimbo into a graceful gravel eating dive.
Bodhi loves swinging at his side and no doubt, is equally willing to risk life and limb in a jump from the heavens, unfortunatly we, his parents, are not as friendly with the notion. All in all it was another great mini adventure.

reflection

The day dances with a noisy wind,
Northern air gusts into Southern fantasies.
Baby slumbers sweetly in downy embrace,
Face upturned, enraptured.
Rhythmic song of breath.
I turn, smiling, toward the bustling horizon
Arms outstretch in welcome.
I ask myself,
Is this walk in wonderland my life?
I answer, Yes.
To this I can only laugh
So many hours spent in restless tension
Hoping for a bright tomorrow.
Ever blind to the brilliant sun of today.

I got my hair cut and colored a few days ago. I feel a bit sassy myself and I always feel a bit giddy when I get a hike in, this sensation is particularly compounded when my littlest boy is in my arms and my admiring man is nearby.

Bodhi and Shane enjoy a cuddle overlooking the Mountains near Marshall, CO.

Shane got a Clooney haircut and is feeling dapper.

Bodhi just feels dapper, well that and sassy, silly, butsy, lovable and cute beyond explanation.
