You may think it's nothing. Just a six year old boy at play with his hammer and nails. But when he proudly gave this gift to Mommy I asked him to tell me about it and was very pleased with the sheer thoughtfulness.
"See Mom, it's a Bible holder! It's for when you're feeding Josiah you can still read your Bible!" It really warmed my heart. He thought of it all himself. Daddy did have to give a little advice on how to build it.
Friday we went to Turtle Point. We brought them bread, which didn't go over too well. The ducks have been fed way too much and can be sort of aggressive. I was hands-free since I had Josiah in my homemade baby carrier, but it was still a challenge, to be sure. The above picture captures everything in the pond: ducks, turtle, ducklings and, if you look closely, fish. After we left, I treated the kids to Icees.
A better picture of the fish.
The ducks are always bullying the turtles and everyone else.
They all wanted cuddle time, so Jeremy took the opportunity to snap a picture.
Josiah is such a hungry baby. Lydia was content with mother's milk for a very long time, but I thought we'd try something more solid to try to help Josiah sleep longer at night. Here's his first spoon-fed meal.
By time we got done there was plenty all over his face.
