Little Brother, Little Brother

We’ve been silent lately, But we haven’t forgotten you!

It seems that since all the warm weather came and the weeds started growing, we’ve been extra busy. And of course, there are a lot of other activities we do… Such things that happen in a large family πŸ™‚

And speaking of family, today I’m sharing with you guys several pictures of this little brother of ours. (these pictures were taken several weeks ago when he turned 11 months old) If you keep scrolling through our blog for a little bit, you’ll see some more pictures of him πŸ˜‰ He’sΒ a lot of fun to take pictures of [if he stays in the right place and position πŸ˜€ ]

Capturing his expressions are one of my goals… and they are hilarious!

little bro
David discovered that he loves to climb, so he climbs onto almost everything.
One day, we found him almost at the top of our basement stairs before we saw him. He had climbed the stairs before, but always with someone ready to catch him if he would happen to fall.

Yesterday, he was a the top of another stairs. He was crying because he wanted to get down, and he hasn’t learned yet to crawl back down. This time again, He did it without supervision πŸ˜›

He also climbs onto the couches. He love to look out the window, so he stands on the couch and “jumps” up and down while ‘watching the world’. He can climb down from the couch, but he did fall once or twice. [oops]

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

David Austin – Portraits

It’s [almost] spring again, and we’re loving it. It’s the time of year when new life is everywhere. Lambs and kids (baby goats) are being born, the grass is turning greener, the trees [will soon be] budding, the sun stays longer, and the world is just a lot warmer. Yup, This weather is perfect!

Yesterday, I was so inspired to get out my camera again and shoot for great pictures. And I got that accomplished!
These pictures of David were taken yesterday evening… and yes, it was so warm that he could go barefoot πŸ˜‰

So, here’s David, with all his charm and smiles.

I can hardly believe that he’s already nine months old!

The way he crawls makes me laugh. He does it with such passion… like he’s on a mission, which he usually is πŸ™‚
His cute little wave πŸ™‚
Oh, he gets L O T S of these πŸ˜‰

Have a blessed day! (and here is a good-bye from David)
