I really love this photo, it’s one of my favorites from our trip. The magnitude of the moss-covered trees and her tiny frame looking up at them in wonder… it just tugs at my heart strings. I took it on a hike called the Hall of Mosses in the Hoh Rainforest in Washington’s Olympic National Park.
Clover’s reached a point now where she doesn’t want to be put in her stroller (Lucas pushed an empty one for most of this hike), our hopeful suggestions/pleas that she ride in it for a little while being met with a very matter of fact “No. I’m just walkin’ everywhere.” (Seriously, how can you argue with that logic? ;) This can make for some pretty slow going though when it comes to hikes, but at least this was a beautiful one!
She turned two today and each day seems to hold a new development in how she soaks up the world around her. She amazes me all the time with the things she notices and how she explains them. She’s a super verbal little two-year-old with a pretty impressive vocabulary!
Happy Birthday Sweetie! Mama loves you, like the trees love the sun : )
