Today I randomly started thinking “I wonder when I posted my first blog post?” So I went back to the first post and discovered it was January 16, 2013. One year ago, as of yesterday. I’m so thankful that Maggi encouraged me to blog. It’s been fun for me to be able to look back on what we have done over the past year. I never expected that I would be a “blogger,” but it’s been a great experience and I hope I am able to continue for years to come.
Anyway, last week I got some puzzles out for the boys. Liam has been a puzzle lover from a very young age, always loving the challenge of figuring them out. Then Kai came along. Let’s just say that he hasn’t always had the same appreciation for things that require thought and patience. But when I encouraged him to try a harder puzzle than he was used to, and he put it together all by himself, he was so proud! And I was proud of him. After that, he wanted to do it again, and again, and again. He’s been having so much fun doing puzzles everyday now.
Liam’s been perfecting his fake, ruin the pictures, kind of smile 🙂
We may have also borrowed a 500 piece puzzle from the Lovings. Perhaps I was overestimating their skills 😉 But once I start a puzzle, I can’t stop. So with a little bit of help from Don and the boys, I finished that one. I guess they get their puzzle loving from me.
And to close out this post, a super cute picture of Liam cuddling with his baby sister.
