He Talks to Trees

Sawyer and I have been sick with a cold this week, so we've stayed at home for the past few days. Now that he's feeling a little better, he's started going stir crazy. So after lunch today, we took a long walk. He was so excited about it that you'd think I'd been keeping him in a closet for months. "Flowers! Birds! Clouds up high in the sky!" (It reminded me of that line from Knocked Up about how kids are so enthusiastic about life that they remind you of your utter inability as an adult to enjoy anything.) We walked for a long time enjoying the sunshine and breeze. When it was time to go back home, he started saying his goodbyes. "Bye trees. Bye. See you soon!" Then he wanted to touch the leaves on a low branch over the sidewalk and said "Bye trees. Wuv you." We have a tree hugger on our hands.

  4. He is so cute! I've always been impressed with how sweet and sensitive he is. You'll have to give me lessons sometime so my kids will turn out the same way!

  5. He and I are kindred spirits. I actually named the trees around my house growing up. I still miss them.
