One Year Later and Just as Dirty

This past week it has been unseasonably warm in the afternoons, but I'm not complaining! It has been nice to be able to take the boys outside to play, and we have spent quite a bit of time in our sandbox.

Watching Jonah play in the sand reminded me of one of my very favorite photos. I took this picture of him in the sandbox a little over a year ago. I don't know what it is, but something about this photo always makes me smile.


Jonah has changed so much in a year. He enjoys the sandbox much more now and is very imaginative in his play. He likes to have me build sand castles with him so that he can stomp on them... he is definitely all boy!

The other day Jonah was playing in the sandbox while I hung up a load of laundry on the line to dry. I went and played with him for a while, then I ran inside the house to grab something. When I looked out the window I nearly cracked up! Jonah was out there trying to bury himself in the sand. So of course I grabbed my camera and dashed outside.


Just look at how big my baby has grown! From 12 months to 2T and everything in between. I love this little guy! He has such a fun personality.

Here is the very short video that I took of him in action:


I am participating in Wordful Wednesday.

  5. That is just adorable, a "sand bed" is most likely the best thing in the world to a 2 year old. It looks like our little guys are around the same age, they are too much fun at 2!

  15. gosh, he HAS grown. how great to have the "evidence". i swear, it must be something in the genes... my guys are their happiest when they are rolling around in the mud and dirt and sand, in the rain and the snow, and whatever else you can think of...

    i hate being sandy more than just about anything.
