someone is really into helping with chores these days. yard work is the bees-knees! this past weekend bastian helped dad mow and edge (or eat) the yard. it’s pretty adorable to see him want to help so badly. we let him put his hands on the outdoor broom to pretend like he is sweeping. his face lights up thinking he is really doing work like mom and dad. when i vacuum he insists on helping too. i have to tell him i need help and to go get his pop-pop. he pushes that thing all around the house with such self satisfaction. he is discovering things every day and i just love to see what the next big thing will be. i can’t get enough of this phase he is in – so big, so sweet.
