"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Growing the Team! (Literally.)

Introducing the newest star player of the Baxter family team:

Please note from Exhibit A that babies' heads are so large proportionally to the rest of their bodies that their hands cannot reach around and touch at the top. This crazy kook joined us a few hours after a persuasive (and determined!) hike in the wilderness. The doctor barely made it to the hospital in time, but everything worked out perfectly. He's been a gem of a kid so far and it's also been fun to see how naturally the big sister role fits our mighty girl:

He will be roughly the size of a barge, I'm pretty sure. It seems to be an immediate goal of his, according to his ingestion habits. So, I'm happy I only had to grow him inside me up to a certain size. I'm really glad kids aren't born full-grown. Seriously.

Baby growing isn't the only thing we've been cultivating lately. We've been enjoying garden harvests on the daily and have been up to our usual adventuring (naturally) as well as getting some reading and arting done too. (In fact, we'll be showing at the upcoming Beehive Bazaar next week, so be sure to stop by and check out our Feather & Fir booth if you're around Utah Valley the 3-5!) So, we've been growing our business as well as growing smarter and more adventurous by the day. And growing people. All good things.

For now, little buddy, the growing is up to you. (But I guess we'll still help you if you need.)
