Lots of bumps and bruises

Both Lucy and Reid are very tactile children.  They like to manipulate everything.  But Reid, along with touching everything, is also very kinesthetic.  He likes to move and climb and run and fall.  Since he started walking he has not one day been without a bruise or cut on his forehead.  Not one day.  The latest bump was particular traumatic as it pulled the skin and fat apart between in eyes and created a great big hole through his nose. It was beyond my ability to stay composed over, but luckily Mike was home and a couple of his friends here are doctors, so they brilliantly took care of Reid. Reid was smiling almost immediately after.  He is tough.  He bumps and recovers in seconds time.  And a photographic nod to the final day of curls...

Halloween 2013

If you are counting, this is costume #3 for Lucy.  Thankful for a dress up box to match Lucy's swiftly changing desires.
