This little guy

Who is this little guy?

He shows me proudly how he has put a horse and foal each in their own plastic cup.

I carry him under the pear tree. There are so many pears they weigh the branches down. The pears are small, hard but light. I walk forward, carefully, and they bang one by one on the back of his head. He laughs uncontrollably, like the first time he saw his big brother kick a ball.

We go to the beach and he proudly carries his pail and shovel across the sand.

He carries his cow wherever he goes, for better or worse, in sickness and in health.

We joke that he is one big muscle, especially when he doesn't want to be held.
