Tasting Snow

My baby has a cold. His nose is stuffed up and he has a rough cough. Poor guy.
He will be one in a couple weeks. I can’t even believe it. I mean, where the did the time go? How did we get here? Who am I? How did I go from dating a guy in Oregon to being married and having a one year old amazing kid in Alaska? Alaska. I have no idea.
I wish I did. But I don’t.
My mom and her husband, and my husbands parents are coming up in a couple weeks for Lucas’ birthday. I am so excited to see them. I just want to cry thinking about it. I can’t wait.
We don’t really have many friends up here yet, at least not any that you would invite to a birthday party, so his party will be small. Which is fine. A small party is fine. I’ve got to figure out the whole cake deal and things.
I have a lot of exciting things going on. A lot.
Lucas is getting more familiar with the snow.
I love taking pictures of him. I can never have enough. Trust me, you should see my house. It’s covered with them.

The other day he decided he wanted to try a bite of snow. I didn’t stop him, I was in charge of the camera. We were just outside on our deck, hanging out. I love just hanging out.

He was doing really well, having fun, tasting the snow and playing with it.

But then he fell face first in it. That scared him. I wonder if that’s how he got his cold…

  1. I hope Lucas feels better soon!
    Time really does fly when you have a kid. I just took my son on a Kindergarten tour. Kindergarten?!? How did that happen? Plus, my daughter is turning 3 on Monday. It's just crazy.
    I hope you have a wonderful visit with your family.

  2. aww – what a cute picture! Yeah, i'm wondering if that's how my kids cold their colds – all that playing in the snow – lol! I never thought I would enjoy playing in teh snow….until I had kids ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I have yet to let Aedan into the snow, other than when he took a picture by Daddy's snowman.

    I am going though the same thoughts as you, Aedan will be 1 on March 5. Where did the time go?

  4. Oh I just LOVE his big blue eyes! He is just so sweet in the last snow pic! Since all the kiddos are sick here in Oregon Lucas had to keep with the trend! I hope he feels better soon!
