Today was such a beautiful spring day here in Toronto. I was so excited to enjoy the day that I put my baby in the stroller and we walked for about 3 hours together. Since I live downtown I love to walk around because there are always interesting things to see. It is incredible when you have lots of things to see and appreciate outside, you don’t even see the time pass by. Thomas was very excited and he didn’t even know what and where to look. Everything is still so new for him that it is so amazing to watch him experiencing things for the first time.

Isn’t it amazing to watch babies or even young children explore their world? They always show a huge excitement when they are discovering new things, especially simple things that for us as adults don’t mean anything anymore. One time I read a sentence from Akiane Kramarik that I’ve never forgotten and I totally agree with. He said, “if we experienced life through the eyes of a child everything would be magical and extraordinary. Let our curiosity, adventure and wonder of life… never end”. This is totally true, but it is said that when we grow up this sense of wonder disappears for most of people. We always should try to find joy in the simplest things in life just because it makes everything more interesting and fun too.
