A Litte Empathy Please

(Dangerfiled family photo tradition)

I have to brag about this kid for a second.  So if you hate adorable stories about super cute babies stop reading.
The past few weeks I had been feeling really sick.  Cold, fever, really bad sore throat.  The other day I was feeling really lumpy after a night of no sleep and Scout comes up and says...
Scout:  "Mom hurt?"
Me:  "Yeah, my throat hurts."
Scout:  "Sorry mom. Sorry"
Me:  (tears)
After which she walked behind me and gave me a back rub.
This Thanksgiving I am very thankful for a husband who has taught our daughter about empathy and that when moms not feeling well she likes back rubs and for a beautiful baby girl who is going to be the best big sister ever.

Prescott Fall

 We took a quick trip this weekend up to Prescott to play in the cold.  Scout thought that the fall leaves were the best.  She loved running and kicking them in the air.  I have love watching her grow up and experience all the new things in life.  Kids make everything new and exciting again.

 At Watson Lake we saw a bald egale as we jumped around on the boulders and admired the rocks.

I love all my days with these two, they make everything fun.

Scout Strength

I have heard of old man strength, but baby strength?  Scouts ability to out muscle babies twice her age always astounds me.  I have a theory that some of the steroids I took as a child still lingered in my tissues and while she was in utero they leached into her body.  Here she is doing her nightly pull-ups before bed, you know just to work off a little energy.
