Art Time

Escher and I have really been getting into art time these days. Armed with some new paper and crayons he got for his birthday, we had fun drawing a "tinga" as he calls it, or an Africa. Tinga Tinga is a show on netflix about African animal folklore. He loves it, of course! Anyways we had so much fun drawing trees, watering holes, grass, a sun, and animals.

Escher drew a tapir. His first drawn animal. A tapir, of all things.

We went to the zoo today, and as we were walking up to the tapir exhibit,  a boy comes running up and says, "hey what are these?  I think they are ant eaters!" To his parents.

Escher immediately says "no, they are tapirs! Not ant eaters. They live in the rainforest!"

His love and knowledge of animals impresses me every day. In a world full of technology,  he has found a way to connect with nature.  I love watching his passion grow!

Roo Bear's 1 Year Well Baby

Riley weighs 22 lbs, and is 31.75 inches. The doctor said she is doing really well.

When I was strapping Riley into her car seat, she pointed over to Escher's carseat and she said "ehn? ehn?" and I said "Escher?" And she did the hand sign for more. It was so cute. "More Escher" haha.

How did this sweet, squishy faced, snuggly ball of fun...

Turn into this tall, lean muscle-y 4 year old?

4 years ago...

Little Baby Escher was born... now he is a walking, talking unstoppable tornado who has stolen our hearts. Everyday he surprises me with his sense of humor. He is so clever for such a little guy. His smile never fails to make me smile. I am so lucky to be able to spend everyday with him!

Happy Birthday Escher! We love you!
