Toy stores? Who needs them?

Joseph and I went to the nursery this morning, to pick up some seedlings for the Spring garden: kale, mustard greens, parsley, and cilantro. On an impulse, I got some shelling pea seeds and edamame seeds. Finally, I picked out a new trowel, because I seem to have lost our old one (um, this happens every year). Joe's reaction was a ten-and-a-half-month-old non-verbal version of, "Yes! Mom got me a toy! Awesome!"

It's shiny.

And it has a chewy ergonomic rubber handle.

The pit bull agrees: Joe's new trowel totally rocks.

(And they don't even know about the best part yet: You use it to dig in the dirt. So cool.)


  1. I can attest that this photo sessions was not staged. I got up this morning to see Joe in his playpen... with a trowel and a big grin.

  2. Love this! Great photos. He's definitely your child if he's so excited about gardening implements.

  3. Well, Steve loves gardening too, so he's still mini-Steve, but yes, I'm pretty sure he's mine as well!
