The Big Little Man

Leo is seven now. Slow down, time!

He had a blast on his birthday and will tell you that being seven is totally different than being six.





Monkey Girl

Sophie found a beetle under her bed, set it up in an impromptu habitat, and named it Candace.

Here's the goofy girl.




She still slows down enough to catch some snuggles, though.
