I’m accustomed to seeing this: the girls out relaxing on the deck or patio, while I’m inside the house.
This, however, is completely new:
I don’t think I ever saw Luke do this at the old house. He was either roaming around the yard if he was outside, or he was in the house with me.
What has changed, I wonder? I had three different ideas:
- He is growing up and acting more maturely, learning to relax, even on his own.
- He is that much more at home in our new home than the old.
- At the old house, the only place he could lie and see into the house was on the deck. If he went down in the yard there, he couldn’t see into the house because our main living level was raised. We now live on one level, and wherever he lies down outside, he can see into the house if he needs to (notice he is facing the house). He seems to prefer lying in the grass than on the patio or deck like Sheba.
I had to take the photos through the screen so as not to disturb him, but I was actually surprised that he stayed right there when I went out with my camera. He got even more relaxed!
I actually think it’s probably a combination of all three things, but I do hope this is a sign that he is relaxing some, and that perhaps he’ll learn to relax more in other situations as well. Either way, it’s definitely a sign that our boy is growing up!
