Today is my nephew's second birthday, which may be the strongest evidence ever that time flies when you're having fun. I can't remember life without this little guy, so I thought I'd share some photos of his help on my house as a thinly-veiled excuse to brag about him on my blog.
Even before I bought the house, my strong helper was a visionary. This stone, apparently located erroneously, was quickly put in its place (that place was in a corner of the sidewalk around the corner, for those who are curious about the landscape advice of a one-year-old).
He has helped me feed birds...
And clean up after our bird-bribing adventures.
When I get depressed about yardwork, he reminds me that gravel and weeds can be pretty cool.
Happy birthday to the most wonderful kid on earth - I love you!
