Our grandson turned 9 months old last week, and we forgot to take pictures, so I took lots today, but they didn't turn out so well. DH and I have him on Saturdays while his dad, our DS sleeps, as he works nights, and his mom works on the house she grew up in, so they can move there.
Today, GS and I spent lots of time outdoors watching butterflies and watering some flowers. GS loves to put his hands in the water and get us both wet. He also looks at the butterflies as they go from flower to flower. He also looks in the sky for birds when he hears them. He's a little nature lover. We saw a garter snake, too, but I wasn't positive he saw it. I decided to go in for my camera, but when we got back out, the snake was nowhere to be found. I was disappointed because DS loves snakes, and I really wanted its picture.
DS likes gardening, but doesn't keep up with it these days. He has an assortment of reptile pets, as he did as a teen. He is still into critters. He'll even turn my compost over from time to time to see what's in there.
I meant to take out the assorted magazines, books, and old mail from the lower shelf of the coffee table before GS came this morning, but forgot to until just as DIL was taking pics. So, here I am, baby proofing. I have some collections he's eyeing. I should be busy this week moving more things around.
