Happy Mother's Day!

Finally! The bikes, stroller and wagon can come out from hibernation for our enjoyment. Since the warmer weather has melted away the snow we have been outside every day. These are a couple pictures of Soren and his friend (and neighbor) Cody. I also took a couple pictures of Ingrid and Soren sharing a wagon ride. We are so lucky to have two playgrounds in walking distance from our house.
Besides playing outside and soaking up much needed Vitamin D from the sunshine - Soren's most recent adventures include his facination with nursery rhymes. He has memorized probably over 20 rhymes - his favorite is definately Humpty Dumpty. He'll pretend he is Humpty and falling off his "wall" over and over again. He also loves Jack and Jill and will pretend to be Jack falling down our "hill" outside (I am often Jill, tumbling after him!) One day he was acting out Little Boy Blue, and he said to me, "I'll be Little Boy Blue, you be The Cows in the Corn." On our most recent visit to the library, I hit the jackpot by finding all the mother goose books and brought home over a dozen nursery rhyme books. I love listening to Soren recite the little rhymes and songs during his rest time - he doesn't know I can hear him and his voice is so sweet, I wish I could bottle it up and save it forever.
