Just Keep Swimming

We have our sixth broken bone in six weeks...
This little guy is so cute.

I am counting each one of my fractured vertebrae separately to sound dramatic, but poor Linus just broke his arm last week as he dove off the changing table when the babysitter turned her head. I think he felt inspired by all of our Olympics watching. It was very sad. And the babysitter felt very bad.

But now he remains as happy as he can be, hobbling around on his splinted arm. What I cannot believe, is that he is going to be ONE YEAR OLD in just 2 weeks! That is crazy.

It has been quite an interesting 2 months, but my back is healing well, and the summer is coming to a close. Here are some pictures for all to enjoy!

Eating the one block Calvin would let him play with. Calvin has gotten a little more generous with his sharing over the last month or so.

He began pulling up a few weeks ago! He is very proud of himself.
I love love his blue eyes.
At the Fiesta Days parade. Calvin requested a green cat face painted on him.
Our pumpkin patch! Tyler is afraid it is going to take over our yard. I can't wait for all of our pumpkins in October!

At least Linus's arm and your back will be better about the same time.

Love the photos from the parade. That was a lot of fun.

Your pumpkin plants are stunning!! You have quite the green thumb!! You will love all the pumpkins you get from that patch.

Holy pumpkin patch! I can see it dominating your backyard overnight and spawning several large, self animated pumpkins, a la Tim Burton.

And Linus really is adorable (but so is Calvin). I can't wait to see the two of you.

The boys are adorable as always!! Also I am obsessed with your pumpkin patch!! This year I really wanted to get pumpkins and watermelon for the garden this year but was afraid to commit! Yours look amazing though! :) You should check out the picture book The Vanishing Pumpkin by Tony Johnston (in October of course). It's the best ever! :) Glad to hear your back is feeling a little better too! We have been thinking about you!
