SPRING ARRIVES~

When one stores her computer in a seldom used room...blogging tends  to fall by the wayside, as does reading one's e-mail...sadly, blog followers leave... but, rightly so...You see a certain little someone has become quite mobile and inquisitive... precautions must be taken... 
 Spring has been slow to arrive here in Maine...but color is quietly becoming evident...fields are "greening up" while trees and shrubbery now sport their newly formed buds...Thursday the temperature  reached a high of seventy degrees...I broke out the sunscreen but, tonight  there is a fire in the wood stove...April is such a fickle month...an indecisive month...but we "here" have learned to be tolerant...dusk falls with the serenade of Spring peepers and dawn begins with birdsong...daffodils now dot the landscape...by all accounts Spring has arrived...
 Now Travis Lloyd is an outside kind of child...at eleven months he's got the world by a string...everyday he discovers something new and  I feel so fortunate that I get to witness this...during  story time at the library he blurted out the word "BOOK" you could have knocked me over with a feather...Travis has definite likes and dislikes and can either vocalize or show you first hand... 
 see...he's showing me first hand...and if he could speak...
I'm sure it would be "no more d***hats Granny"... Hope to be catching up with you all soon...Have a great week...~BOSTON STRONG~

Spring has sprung here too.
Travis is such a joy for you to enjoy. Too bad you can't bottle that.
It's difficult to capture a still pose of a toddler on the move.
have a great week.
Hugs,

Yes, Boston Strong is right. It was quite a week. Travis is a ray of sunshine. I never liked hats either :)

Farm Girl said...

I wondered what you had been doing and if you had any bits of spring yet. That is so cute, no more hats. :)
It is always so nice to get caught up around Dog Trot Farm.

Your grandbaby just gets cuter by the day!!!
Spring has been slow to arrive here in Ohio, too. We need some April showers and warmer temps.
Hugs :)

What a dolly! Our Lucy has never been into hats either, and I love them so much. Spring is SLOWLY starting to come to Michigan too. I am so ready to get outside and dig in the dirt. Have a great day!
