Nice days…

So we are in the dog days of May. We never take nice days for granted here, especially with the slow start to spring this year. Andrew has been playing outside every day. He loves the freedom, and he especially loves helping his mom out in the garden beds. Traci has him push his dump truck around full of soil or weeds, and Andrew sure loves being a helper. We were going to try to make his bedtime a little later, by about a 1/2 hour, but it has become a bit earlier, so at 7:45 every night he is SO ready for his crib. He sleeps for about 11 hours. When he wakes up, he cry's for a little breakfast in bed (bottle) then he konks out for another hour, sometimes longer. We were worried that the sleeping in would affect his bedtime, but it hasn't so we aren’t worried anymore.

Here Andrew is TRULY enjoying the dog days of May, shortly after he woke up this morning. He has a peanut butter sandwich in his hand, so the donks are like vultures around him…

regarding bedtime
and desire to sleep, our kids behave the same way. Good weather brings on more activity and they need to recharge batteries.

Regarding child labour, there are laws governing that, so Traci better be careful ;)
