We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

35 days Birthday Pictures

O

On Alder's actual birthday I tried letting him feed himself his yogurt. We've got a ways to go on the non solid foods, but he is starting to get the idea. The bath afterwards was a lot of fun too.



Aunt Karen was worried that we would be upset how messy he got with his cup cake. She obviously had not been there the day before for the yogurt. The party was pretty good, it was mainly family and a few friends, no other babies but the cousins had a lot of fun playing with him.
Trish made him this great dog, and he got some other neat gifts. Of course he loves the singing nursery rhyme book, it isn't so bad that I can't tune out the sound especially since it makes him so happy. I can't promise that I'll replace the batteries.
