FOUR SEASONS IN A DAY



Right now we only have complete darkness for a couple of hours during the night. It is very surreal to wake up in the middle of the night and see light outside. The sun has been shining more these days with clouds coming and going as they please and yesterday was a particularly lovely one (. . . or so it seemed). When Jason got home from school we slowly but surely got ready for an evening walk we had planned. We went down Sauchehall street to walk through the shopping streets and have a look. There are some really fun, trendy and cheap stores that we appreciate (you would love Primark). We managed to arrive just as the shops were closing (they stay open "late" on Thursdays--8 pm) so, we just walked around a bit and then did some small grocery shopping.

As we headed for home we felt a bit of rain (which is completely normal for Scotland) but then it got harder and harder and we eventually got soaked! Luckily Soren's stroller is a secret space mobile for the rain. Everyone has them--the complete plastic rain cover for buggies. Before moving here from sunny California I thought the sun umbrella on most strollers was for the rain! Such a California girl thought.

The above photos are the evidence. I need windshield wipers for my glasses! Oh, and check out the cute mini behind Soren and Jason--Soren loves them and always points them out while we are on walks.

At first I thought you looked like Bridget in that photo, and then I thought you looked like an intellectual French boy with your watery glasses. Cammie, you are so tiny. A little itty-bitty teeny-tiny.

Your little child could not be any CUTER!!! RAR! I want to squeeze his cheeks. He is a baby meat dumpling.

Fun fun fun. I love the rain.

Soren is so cute, I want to jump into that photo and pinch his cheeks!

Cammie said...

Yeah, his nickname was "Nugget" for the longest time. He is our little veggie meatball. Charla also calls him "Pudding Cheeks."

The pictures bring back happy memories. I can hardly wait to walk in the rain with our little boy. He's growing so fast.

Your header is he crying or singing? I love it. I need to figure out how to do that.

He is a little dumpling. What a sweetie. What is his personality like?
We took L to Europe as a baby and we were the only people without a rain guard. I think we fashioned something or other.

He is singing and using a wooden spoon as a microphone. I don't know where he learned that but he was cracking himself up singing "Happy Birthday". He would sing a line or two and then get shy about it start screaming with laughter.
