So spring is back! Well, it’s been back since late February but now the days are consistently warmer and, well, less depressing. To celebrate all the beauty, on a recent walk around our neighborhood, I posed Benjamin in his stroller near pretty flowers and took pictures 🙂 I felt a little bit odd doing it, but then realized that it really was a compliment to the homeowners and not weird at all. So here are a few of those pictures.
Spring is also happening in our yard. In the fall, you may remember that we planted a Red Sunset Red Maple, a pink dogwood, and a cherry tree. All three bloomed and here is how they look! (All of these pictures were taken by the fabulous Mister Donnie Carpenter.)
Thank you again, Mom and Dad, for buying them for us 🙂
Because it’s spring and we live in the Northwest and our front yard is north-facing, we had to de-moss, fertilize, and reseed our front yard. We didn’t get a picture of all the moss but here are some pictures of the de-mossing process which will serve as our “before” pictures. Hopefully we’ll have some happy “after” pictures to show in a couple of weeks. If not….we’ll be reseeding in October 🙂
And Benjamin is doing well in his recovery from RSV. I’ve noticed especially in the last few days that his coughing has significantly diminished! In fact, I’m going to return his nebulizer to the doctor’s office before we head to DC on Wednesday.
Also, in a small effort to get “caught up” on Benjamin posts, here are a few of the videos I’ve sent around to families and some of which I’ve posted on Facebook. But now they’re here in one spot.
Hopefully after our trip to DC, I’ll quickly put up some new pictures of him with his cousins! And I’ll also start to work on a month-by-month progression of how he’s changed and growing. We’ll see if that ever materializes! Oh and I have my baby pictures and Donnie’s, so we can start comparing who he looks most like (hint: it’s not me :D).
