Today is just beautiful here. I have been so sad the last few days, missing Sophie and desperately wanting some new pictures or an update on her. It’s been 5 months since we’ve gotten a new picture and I’m really missing her! So we all went out to enjoy the weather and it really improved my mood. Isabelle loved the swing, even though she wasn’t sure about it at first. Once she got her balance she really enjoyed herself. Then she was off, running around, contemplating life. You know, she might just be 21 months, but she’s got important things to think about. Soon Velvet got her attention and she chased her off toward the apple trees. Velvet wasn’t crazy about having an audience so she ran off into the pasture, under the fence, and Isabelle was sad she was too big to follow. I distracted her with a dandelion and to my surprise, she held onto it for more than a second, she actually inspected it. Dalton and I laughed about the old tale that if you hold a dandelion under your chin and your skin is yellow, then you must like butter. We both agreed that we like butter, for sure! Then Isabelle started to wind down and she was ready to come in. It’s nap time, oh yeah.
