In case you didn’t know, my son’s name is Leo and he’s completely obsessed with space.
He’s only 3 and a half and this kiddo knows every single planet, in order from the sun all the way out to the farthest reaches of the solar system. And can even identify dwarf planets and their locations as well.
He’s even told me the names of some of the moons of the different planets completely on his own. Some of which he taught ME because I didn’t even know they existed.
And what’s absolutely magical to me is that he’s taught almost all of this to himself thanks to his little nerdy heart constantly watching science/math related YouTube videos and the books he likes to read with us. (I seriously can’t get him interested in watching anything else right now lol!)
So, you can only guess what his answer was when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween this year.
An Astronaut <3_<3
And since this year’s costume is just so special to his actual loves and interests, I wanted to take the photos next level and take him on a little nature walk through Clifton Gorge and let him just play and pretend to be a real life astronaut. So we pretended to moon jump and find different specimens and looked for “space creatures” and I’m just so thankful to have these little photos to remember this time.
So, enjoy these little nuggets of my little astronaut <3
