We moved to Michigan in the middle of January and that's when all the snow hit around here. My son went outside in his snowsuit and promptly tried to climb all the trees in our backyard - yet was unable to do so. He dragged around a large outside toy bin from tree to tree trying to reach the lowest branches - but again, to no avail.
Now that the snow is all gone, he went out again today. He discovered a different tree, one he hadn't tried before, and began pulling the toy bin over there. Ah-ha! He was able to do it!!
Now this tree has been dubbed "Isaac's Tree" - it is right outside his window and small enough that he can do it "al by himself"!!! Whoo-hoo!

p.s. my dh just pointed out how WRONG it is for me to sign-off as Michigan Momma with our son proudly displaying his OHIO STATE sweatshirt in these pics. Oh well....Daddy's from Ohio, Momma's from Michigan. Come to think of it, I don't even think our babies OWN any Michigan stuff....daddy wouldn't hear of it. ~L.
