City Outdoor Space

Some weekends we never get out of our pajamas.

We are lucky if all three of us are pulled together for church.

 Some times the only outdoor time we have is on our wee little balcony.

We love that sitting up there makes us feel like we are skipping rocks on a sea of roof tops.

The city scape can be so beautiful.

We love our balcony.

Especially on the days that it is our only connection to the outside.


Blowing kisses to the camera.

These pictures were taken during an impromptu "13 months," photo shoot, just before leaving for church last week. Behr and I both look presentable, which is quite the feat these days. Although the 13 month milestone soared by with little fanfare, there has been quite a lot of learning. Behr has been picking up new words and phrases and using old ones with increasing regularity including: ball, book, hi mom, dada, and a whole lot of gibberish. He has started to use his tongue as he tries to form words, and it is hilarious. We all just fall on the floor laughing.  Behr loves taking out the trash, blowing kisses, and being outside. He gets excited and has even learned to poop on the potty. Whoa! That one caught us off guard, but we are running with it. One thing is certain, we are having more and more fun with this little boy as each week passes.
