In the Woods

12/05/2012

We took the dogs out to a big park on Sunday morning, and we all enjoyed running around in the outdoors, getting some much needed fresh air. I can't believe how great a walker Soren is these days. He trots along in his little moccasins, always with his eyes peeled for a good stick to pick up. When he got tired he said 'up', and reached his little arms up towards me. We hadn't used his sling in many months, but he still fits in it and it's perfect for winter walks to keep us both cosy. As we headed back to the car the Littlest started to get a little sleepy and he lay his head on my shoulder. That was my moment of the week, hands down. He's not much of a cuddler these days, and walking along with his head on my chest reminded me so much of his baby days. I miss those days...
Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesdays.

Thank you Tara - you are so sweet:) The boots are a few years old, from a company called Pajar. They were an investment - but SO worth it! My feet are toasty warm all winter long.

Hi, I'm visiting from the link up! These are absolutely gorgeous pictures of you and your sweet boy! My 9 month old has never been a cuddler until recently and I'm trying to soak up every bit of it. They grow way too fast!

I am so jealous of the snow! It's still hitting the high 80's here in Houston. So unfair! I miss winter!

Hi, stopping over from the meet and greet blog hop! Your son is absolutely adorable, and I agree it is the best feeling in the world when they want to cuddle with you! Also your pictures make me super excited for it to snow here in Chicago!
