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. David Orr from "Earth in Mind"

Alder Update plus other stuff
When I started this blog I stopped keeping a baby book since I was putting so much about Alder in here. But lately my entries have been so disjointed and lacking... well any substance... so I thought I'd do another update on Alder and a few other things. [for those of you who are expecting photos this weekend none of these are clear enough, we will have a few for you]
Alder: He now says Mm-huh for yes, Moa for more, a version of no, ba, for both bottle and baby, cat, Maman for mama and occasionally up, on, down, tree, no, yep and there.
He is walking up the stairs (which is scary to watch)
He has gotten into an awful habit of wanting to fall asleep while watching a movie (he seems to prefer documentaries and foreign films and loves the Anne of Green Gables Series), I feel guilty but we have been letting him do this some lately otherwise he doesn't settle down until almost 9 pm.
He has been sleeping by himself in the guest room (we are working on finishing his room still)
He has discovered that if you drag chairs places then you can climb them and reach things, especially things that Mama puts up high on purpose.
He loves going for walks.
He likes playing with the camera (with my help)
He will tell you when he is ready to go outside by handing you his jacket and boots.
He is starting to bring us diapers when he wants to be changed.
Other stuff (not related to Alder).
I have two new bags that I am putting on etsy this afternoon.
This is the new fabric that I got while in New York.
