Feels like home to me........

Just a few days ago I took a some pictures of the beautiful colors in our yard....the unidentified bush/tree with the leaves that seemed to hold on forever, and our strawberry plants sleeping in the garden box. Now the leaves are GONE and the stawberries coved with snow and ice.
Sophie's school was cancelled for all but two days so we had a bout of cabin fever. I do really love walking in the snow however, it is so much nicer than the rain we are usually plagued with at this time of the year. I love the way Solomon reacts to big wet snowflakes splating on his cheeks.(mom,we borrowed your scarf) It feels like we are back home in Wisconsin. Sophie is really in heaven, but is a bit irritated that I can't drop everything and go outside with her like we used to.I just can't see building a snowman with 24.5lb Sollie on my back!
We are taking advantage of this odd winter weather, it is all so beautifully familiar.

Could it be.... 11 months already?

Solomon has had quite the month. He has learned to sign "Light"and he is very proud of himself.We finally made it to the zoo where he had an intimate moment with an orangutan(see last Picture). He has a great sense of humor and a person must be careful not to leave any skin exposed within his reach because he will do his not so gentle "tickle tickle".Oh,and he gives raspberries too.
He is pulling up on furniture and trying to step off into the abyss on his own.I bet he will walk before he is a year old. Ah it is all so bittersweet, he is such a big boy now. He is our curious little man, always armed with his pointer finger,"Whazaah,whasssat?".
We love our little boy so much........
