Even in the biggest landscapes his focus is on the detail.
An afternoon exploring the sand dune country nearby. He was such a trouper and did a lot of meandering walking. And running! He absolutely loved it.
I love the way he stops in his tracks to notice a seedpod. Plays peek-a-boo with his shadow. Names sheoak and banksia. Does his little 'funnywalk'. He even slid down a rather large dune - not bad for the kid who doesn't really do playgrounds.
It's been another hard week. He has been having night terrors, though we had no idea what they were. It's such a relief to name them. And to be able to do things to prevent them. His have been triggered by over-tiredness. There's a lot of frustration and developmental growth going on too.
It all makes me really, truly appreciate the calm. The sometimes quiet pottering in the kitchen or the garden. His happy banter. And especially his mimicry: 'Oh dar-wing!' or 'Oh mi-tter, mi-tter!'
