My Little Lover

Two exciting things happening in this picture:  One, Ryan is sitting at his big boy table, and two, he's practicing blowing his own nose.  (Em's old Jenny Lind table and chairs.)
Ryan and I have been heading out on bike rides in the mornings.  He thinks his sister's hand-me-down helmet is pretty cool (hula dancer on the back and all...).  He yells, "Neigh, Neigh!" the whole time as we head over to a meadow near or home filled with horses.
Sometimes he wants to wear his hand-me-down froggy boots, rain or shine.
The shirt is wide open because so you can see his hairless chest...no, but really, we had to re-dress after lunch today.  Notice the little black eye!  I'm so sad!  Ry got his first little shiner while climbing up the steps on the playground last evening.  
This is the face I stare at every day.  He knows my name.  He hugs my thighs.  He kisses me and snuggles on my shoulder.  My heart is so very, very full...
