🍓11 months with the sweetest strawberry in the patch. He loves exploring Grandma’s greenhouse, and “helping” pick.
Just this past Saturday, we saw him take his first 3 or 4 steps by himself, no coaching involved. ☺️ This week he’s gotten quite confident, and has been walking more and more.. oh, how FAST a baby grows.♥️
🛩 Aug 24th, Ervin had his first non-commercial flight thanks to @ty_zim97
It was a lovely evening to go exploring, and I’m glad he finally got the chance to do it. Bruce was fascinated watching them fly over the house, much to his delight. 👦🏼 He always seems to notice (hear) airplanes. 👍🏻
▪️Aug 10th marked the first day of caribou hunting season for 2020...
▪️This year each resident could harvest any 2 caribou, so the area was very crowded with hunters! This means we had close neighbors even in the wilderness.
▪️The weather on Monday morning was quite rainy, foggy, along with some wind. Due to those conditions and the rain and fog in the forecast for the next few days and a job that needed finished, we came home without filling any tags.
▪️We enjoyed our time spent with family, and made some good memories. Bruce’s had his second 10+ hour (one way) roadtrip, and he did very well. 👦🏼
👦🏼I better share these 9 month photos quick before he’s 10 months already this Saturday. 😆We just love his expressions these days. Every time he hears an airplane fly over, he stops what he’s doing to listen and then “talks” about it. 😄 He’s one busy boy these days. “Dada” is one of his favorite words. When Ervin picks him up, he’ll always go straight for the pen in his shirt pocket. I’m not sure how many pens have been ruined by now. 😉
🖤 When your youngest sister says “Shall I come to Alaska again?”. Of course I say “yes!!” and now more than a month has gone by already. It was so GOOD to have her here again! Bruce finally met another one of his Aunts, and still has 2 more Aunts & Uncles and 3 cousins to go! ♥️ Thanks for coming, and you’re welcome any time. 😍 @a_farm_girls_life @alison_peachey @miriamsauder
🌿JULY is here in all its glory. Roses, lilacs, iris and wild roses are making our landscape not look so drab here at the Yoder residence. The first photo is a flowering bush from Siberia (according to our neighbor lady). Anyone recognize it? 😀

💙 8 months with our little sweetheart. He’s crawling, pulling himself up to stand wherever he can, tearing pages, exploring, and all his sweet, happy talk is the best. Some of his favorite food is eggs, apple sauce, and almost anything we offer him. 😜 He’s my little shadow, and follows me nearly everywhere. 💙
