Orison’s Transition to Boyhood
Part of my enjoyment of this summer has been watching my toddler turn into a boy. He tries so many risky things now (be still my heart). But instead of stopping him constantly, I’m watching him develop and realizing that he is so much more capable physically than he was a year ago. He climbs ladders with relative ease, jumps off of everything, and is thrilled by all manner of boy games.
Here are some pictures from the last couple weeks that have had me laughing:
He had seen a hopscotch board while we were on on a walk the other night and when I drew him one, he thought it was so fun. He doesn’t actually throw a stone and do the game, he just jumps along the board back and forth.
Very thrilling when the dumpster arrived for our demolition work. Abraham let him go in there before we started the project and he had a blast!
Baseball and bike riding have been a huge part of this summer. Not sure how my running shoes fit into the game, but it makes sense to him somehow.
He’s also been growing his hair out with his daddy. This might be one of my favorite pictures in recent memory. This was also taken the day that he didn’t want to change out of his pajamas. I kept asking him, “Do you want to get dressed for the day now?” His response each time, “Not yet.” So he stayed in them all day—fine by me!
