New Seasons, New Tricks

As Elin gets older and the seasons change it’s so much fun to see what more she can do comparatively from the last season. She is learning so much each and every day and grasping new concepts that’s it’s hard to keep up with what she now knows!  She recently spotted a watering can at her Nana and Papa’s and knew immediately what to do with it.  We don’t water flowers at home so I am not sure how she knew but she must have been paying attention to someone either on her cartoons or in a book.  She did a good job watering the flowers and then watering the patio so she could jump in the puddles.  Her Papa would use the bigger watering can to fill her small little one and she quickly caught on and was able to fill her own can with water with little assistance.  I’m sure she is going to be a big help to them this summer!

It’s going to be so much fun to discover all the new tricks she has learned this summer and to see her enjoy more things.






In sad news I wanted to share this picture of Teddy and his family.  I did this post in honor of him and his fight with Menkes Syndrome.  His story is another reminder of what a miracle each day is and how fortunate I am to have a healthy toddler.





  1. I read about Teddy’s story somewhere else and was completely heartbroken. Just so tragic and sad. Love that quote thought. Perfect for his little story.

  2. she has the hang of that watering can for sure. . . lex waters the flowers and then herself. so any watering can experience definitely ends in soaking wetness.

    and sweet teddy. i can’t imagine.

  3. Can I please shop in Elin’s closet? 🙂

    So very sad! #TeamTeddy

  6. Amen to having healthy toddlers. Prayers for Teddy’s family.
