Greetings, Poetry Lovers! How did it get to be June so fast?
We had a delightful visit from our baby grand, Sawyer, last weekend. (The picture was one of my favorites from the weekend - that's my hubby, Jeff , aka "Baba.") In a few days, we'll be celebrating Sawyer's first birthday!
He's grown from a beautiful wee bairn into a snuggly, music-loving, baby-engineering, dog-bowl splashing, truck-admiring, mischief-making singer of mysterious songs. He is a voracious lover of books, and has recently started "reading" them himself, with the pictures turned the right way, even. Also, he's a dumper of laundry baskets, little trash cans, and toilet paper from the roll. He's on the move most of the time, except for the occasional "Ms. Rachel" break in his special chair. He's stolen all of our hearts and we can't wait to see where he'll go next! (Babyproof, people!)
Here's a little ditty to celebrate.
You're the ONE!
Look at you, Baby -
Look what you've done.
You made your first trip
around the sun!
Here's to another
year of fun.
Here's to you -
Hooray! You're one!

We're so proud of his parents - our Morgan and hubby Matt, and their oh-so-patient lab, Maggie. Uncle Seth (& Aunt Ginnie) keep Sawyer entertained & full of joy, too.
Wishing you much to revel in this summer. Speaking of which, Happy Pride Month to all who celebrate!
