Fridays with Henry

Since August 2008 I have traded every other Friday with my sister in caring for her grandson, Henry. It has been great to be a part of his evolving life and watching him develop. My Henry Fridays have been a delight and about twice a month alone with a baby and now a toddler is just about right.

Here are a couple of pics from our early days (can't wait til he's about 16 and sees these!).



He has been very helpful with the housework but on this particular day his curiosity resulted in injury. Up to that day he'd never been able to get the desk drawer open because he tried pulling on just one handle. Ever since this owie it has been a running joke to ask him where he has gotten an owie because the answer is always "Amy's house" - no matter where it happened!

My last Henry day before the arrival of his baby brother. Trying out Amy's helmet.





Enjoying hot chocolate on a cold day.















It'll be interesting to see how Fridays play out once momma returns to working and there are 2 little boys involved!

Just like Henry.
I am still learning the painful way!
