Ruben's monthly photo shows him with his head held high. You can usually find him trying to sit himself up and participate with anything and everything his older brother is doing these days. I am having so much fun watching them really start to play together. Miles' favorite thing to do lately is search for bugs anywhere and everywhere; so it seems fitting that his monthly photo shows him with his magnifying lens!
Another way we love to celebrate this time if year is by putting it in jars. As a friend recently said to me, "Canning season has begun." We started with strawberry jam! My brothers came over to visit for the afternoon and entertained my boys while I turned this flat of berries...
into two dozen half pints of jam!
Last weekend we decided to beat the heat playing in the sprinkler. Our dear friends brought their girls over and joined us.
Miles and Sofia took turns spraying each other with water.
It was a perfect summer day. The kind when you put all the lists of things you should do or could do aside, and instead crack open a beer, sit back, and watch your kids play!
And finally! I managed to get a picture of Ruben's teeth! His new toothy grin just melts my heart.
