Our backyard after a December storm. Happy Wordless Wednesday!

a story about a boy


One Sunday morning, the Pumpkin was running around the living room, while my husband and I lay in our pajamas on the couch contemplating what form of idleness our day would entail. We noticed that the key ring, a favored toy of our son, had taken a new position; that is, he no longer felt it adequate to hold them in his hand. He wanted to grip them in his eight teeth while gesturing dramatically.


Notice the knee bends here. This is the beginning of his new dance move, which is like a grand plie. He does this to any sort of music, and it looks particularly out of place when performed with anything modern. Imagine a ballerina dancing to hip-hop. A twenty-nine inch ballerina. With a diaper on. Shortly after this picture was taken, he launched himself at me, intending to land in my arms I think.


He didn’t quite make it.


But, since he is experienced in the ways of tumbling, he bounced right back up and continued his previous activities.


If there is something in life better than this, I don’t know what it is.

Profile of a pumpkin

Is it the curve of his chubby cheek? Or the little snub nose? Or the tuft of hair sticking up from the crown of his head? I love just about everything about this picture!

What lovely teeth you have…

…the better to smile winningly at you and make you forget why you were mad at me in the first place, my dear! This is my best shot of the week, and probably my favorite picture of the little pumpkin in quite some time!
