Except Saturday. At my nephews' birthday party (which was at a fire hall. . .and I tremble to think what might have been all over that floor).
Luke was eating pretzels (the only thing Aunt Erin had in his I will eat inventory). And he dropped a precious pretzel on the floor. Only to look dismayed when I told him "That one, birdies."
Do the birdies like to eat yuckies? He asked. Do they have germies inside them?

.These guys. . . black starlings. . . with tiny spots on their chests. . . finding a sheltered spot from the snow. . . They landed, one by one. . .
Maybe a dozen. . . And I called the boys over to watch them as they landed on the chairs and railings, huddling together. . . Their feathers fluffed to keep out the cold. . .
We held our breath, so that we wouldn't startle them away. . .
And then they were gone. . . one by one they flew. . .
Finding new perches out back on the branches thick with snow. . .
Flying here and there. . .
And to a warm spot on a chimney. . .
One of my favorite moments of the day. . .

Yep, you're sick. We'll have to get you some medicine.
[We're all down with some sort of head cold right now.]
I can't go to the doctor.
The doctor can't make me bedder.
But that's the doctor's job: to help you get better.
No, I have to go to the hospital.
To get better?
Yay-ah. And then I can have my baby.
Oh, you want to go to the hospital to have your baby.
And his name is Thomas.
Luke's baby is not forgotten, obviously. Too cute.

And happily we watched. . . until our bellies grumbled for breakfast [a chocolate chip pancake morning]. . . a perfect way to start our morning . . . sweet moments together . . .

Created in my Heidi Swapp class I took two years ago (?). A page a day from October to November. . .nothing fancy. . .Nothing but a photo and journaling on the back. . .And just absolutely full of wonderful little moments that I otherwise would have forgotten. Hoping to create one for February.
