My mother in law takes great pictures -she snapped this shot of Thomas
last weekend. Looking at it just melts my heart. I can feel his little
head asleep on my chest, hear the funny way he says 'hello' and holds
his hand to his ear like he's talking on the phone, see the way he
toddles around the room with his hands out in front of him like a drunk.
He's unlike t2 in that he's not ok with just anyone - and more often
than not he only wants me. Oddly it's never occured to me to mind.

Happy days

Tayloe made it home safe from Africa last weekend. It takes us a few
days to readjust to life all together again, but when we do it seems
like we're always better than before. It's hard to be without an
essential member of our team for any length of time (2 weeks this
time) but in the end I always feel a little stronger and a little more
confident. Sorta like running a marathon I'd guess, although I
certainly can't speak from experience there.
In the time that he was gone Thomas started taking his first real
steps alone and in the last week seems to be deciding that maybe
motoring on feet rather than knees is the way to go.

Go to sleep baby
