I am thrilled that Nathan already seems to love nature. At just 16 months, he loves to be outdoors and cries by the front door when he wants to go outside. I can’t unlock the door for our babysitter or run out to grab something from the car without him losing his mind. I can’t even casually look out the door’s window when he’s around. Forget about sticking your head out the front door to see what the temperature is like. And although it can be a little inconvenient, I love that my son loves to be outside. Just like me.
We had our first real nature walk the other day—the kind where he picks up the things he finds and caries them with him for as long as he can manage it. I had fun snapping these photos as he waved around seedpods from our beloved Indian Cigar tree and tasted a pinecone.
It was such a nice time.
