45 Weeks

Dear Harrison,

Summer is here and we are in full swing of soaking it up!!!

You love Papa Coach's cows!!  He had a difficult week but he is home and healing.  He's got to get better so you guys can ride his tractor before summer is over.

You still love your time to it reading or just laying in the floor of your room. I think you love your room and I am so glad because it was created with so much love!

Averie gave you her water table and you have been loving it this week!!  It's been a fun thing for you to do while I water the garden.

Your eating is still expanding because your days of having just two teeth are over.  You've had real big boy lunches all week.  You've had several things from our garden which makes me so happy to provide for you.  I shelled peas the other night and it's something I always dreamed of doing ever since I was a little girl as I helped my great-grandmother shell peas, shuck corn, make jelly and pickled okra. 

One thing I have been making for years is pickles.  Our cucumbers are coming in like crazy so I made time to make some spicy dill pickles.  You played with a slice of cucumber the entire time.  I cannot wait to make more things as the season continues with you as my little helper. 

You've also had your first Mexican meal - a quarter of a beef burrito with no sauce.  You've been to a Mexican restaurant more than I can count so finally you are able to enjoy some of the blander food they make.

We've got a fun and busy weekend ahead! Fingers crossed the rain doesn't spoil it...we are off now to the zoo.

I love you,
