my little conductor

we are a fan of trains around here.

this is our favorite book these days.

and since we live a stone's throw from the tracks, the choo choo is our regular lullaby. (though really not always a fan of falling asleep to that...)

so when i got the little man dressed in our awesome hand-me-down conductors cover alls, i decided that it inspired a field trip down to the tracks.

although actually trying to get brave enough to put him down for a picture on the tracks was a different story -insert paranoia here-

the outakes:
it will take a miracle to get a shot looking at camera with all these dirty distractions...

ahhh mom...  can i please?
success!  i got one!

and with that, i scooped him up.  enough dirty things in the hands and mouth for the day.

hurray! i'm glad i'm not the only one with paranoia and super grossed out by dirty rocks and things!

I hated putting Ada on the ground at that age because she would do the same thing. Pick things up and put them in her mouth!
He is adorable! Love the overalls!

He is darling! He looks so much like a Hall! {in my opinion!} One of these days I've got to come up and see you so I can meet your little man!!
