Now and then

It was fascinating to have Abe back with us for Thanksgiving. Last year he visited for the first time as a 5-month-old baby, just mature enough to interact and observe. Now he's an active toddler who feels at home at Red Hill and loves the woods and views around our place. One of my goals is to assemble a timeline of Abe pictures, but meantime, here's a "now and then" comparison from Thanksgivings 2015 and 2016.

At 17 months, Abe finds sticks, leaves, and Virginia red clay a lot more desirable than floor dirt!
