Dirty boys..

 When it comes to children exploring their outside world, I am pretty hands off.  Very hands off.  Once they reach a certain age (Is 8ish months too early?)  I like to let them out there, and let them go.

Cyrus, in February 2007 went for it.  Face first.  I think he looks like a chocolate bear, but its mud.  He was way too happy for me to worry about it.
Sol, in February 2011 was a bit more methodical than his older brother.  Shoving fist fulls of debris in his little mouth, but for the most part staying upright.

 Of the two of them I think Sol looks dirtier.  (It's probably the runny eyes and nose of his cold)  In the end one thing is true... I love me some dirty babies!

Here's to getting out there and exploring our world, face, fist, or feet first!

That picture of Cyrus is the cutest ever. I would print it and hang it up in a nice frame. :)
I love dirty kids, too. I remember loving to be dirty when I was young.
