Three more weeks.

There are officially three weeks left until the beginning of one of the most highly anticipated events of my year. Spring. Sweet spring- with its green leaves and mown grass and new gardens. We are certainly anticipating the gardens.

It's so satisfying to see Henry want to be involved with our plants for the garden. He checks them, under their lights, to see how they are doing and has even had a chat with them a couple of times. That boy could talk to a wall.

We have had a few days of fairly nice weather over the last couple of weeks. We squeezed in a couple of trips to the playground and Mama squeezed back into her running shoes and hit the pavement. It was good.

We also snuck in a not-often-enough date night. Henry got to play with his sitter, Brianna, for a few hours while we went out for a lovely dinner in East Nashville with these two very missed faces. What a fun night! Even Will Zuill, my beloved creature of habit himself, got a little adventurous with his dining choices!

Henry's dining choices are hit or miss these days. Some days it seems like he only eats ten bites the entire day. The next day he's eating like a 15 year old linebacker. You just never know. But there is one thing we always know- this boy LOVES to help in the kitchen.

And then proudly eats whatever it was he helped to make.

He's become quite fond of one particular kitchen contraption.

{does he not have the best bed head ever??}

He is convinced that he has other 'contraptions' built into his wrist. And before you can even blink he'll have you wrapped up in his webs.

I'm pretty sure that there was a three day span this week where he mostly referred to himself as 'Spider Henry'. No kidding.

Apparently the whole charade is exhausting.

So for the next three weeks we will wait, for Spring. When it arrives I plan to bask in its full glory. After these last couple of months of cold weather, I think we all will. But I'm telling you, I really don't mind another three weeks of this in the meantime- reading stories and playing and just hanging out (and sometimes getting exasperated with Mama and her camera). This is pretty darn good.
