Beating the winter doldrums with lots of bouncing, somersaulting and dodging balls. Happy days!
 "A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"

Something about this week made me realize just how big my baby boy is becoming. He's adding all kinds of words to his vocabulary, he helped me bake numerous times without a huge disaster and I swear he jumps higher and runs faster than he ever has. (I also pulled his newborn clothes out of the closet to wash up in preparation for his baby brother and it blows my mind that he was ever that tiny.)

I chose this photo over the MANY other ones I took because of the hint of that happy magic Avery gets in his eye when he's
in the midst of his crazy bouncing time. If only for a second, he forgot I was holding a camera when he glanced my way and I caught the look before he turned on his get-that-camera-out-of-my-face scowl.

We were finally able to get outside and take a couple of walks on warm(er) afternoons this week. We're anticipating an even bigger warm-up coming up in the next few days!!
Splish splash!

Linking up with The 52 Project here
