Henry has been out paddling in a canoe only 4 times. Twice last year and twice this year. And what a difference that year makes. Last year he got frustrated that he couldn't reach the water to splash. This year his hands are in the water the whole time and he is constantly trying to crawl out of the boat to go into the water headfirst.

Last year he slept stretched out in the boat and he didn't even run into me.

This year he fell asleep on top my feet and my legs went numb and tingly.

Last year he sat in my camping chair to play.

This year he knows how to really stretch out and lounge.
big guy

The time sure flies by.

My kids seem to be growing so fast. It makes me sad. I love little and they just want to get big on me!
