"A portrait of Avienne once a week, every week, in 2013."

Quarante-cinq :: Digging up rocks and dumping them in her lap - a new discovery.

We were at the park again for a birthday party this past Sunday, and Avienne was most interested in playing with rocks than slides or swings.  Once she discovered an abandoned shovel, she spent a good while shoveling rocks onto her lap, clearing them off, then shoveling them back on.  I love watching her discover something totally new to her, learning a new concept and developing new skills - she's just soaking it all up, all the time.  I hope she's always intrigued by new discoveries and willing to entertain new experiences.  It's what life is all about, and something that I really have to work at being better at, myself.  Becoming a mama gives me so much to reflect on about my own life and goals, and man, am I really grateful for that.
