My Son



My son is getting to be so funny now that he's almost two. I understand why parents of toddlers are never bored. They come up with the craziest things to say and do. Just this morning when daddy was leaving for work he told him "Bye bye daddy!" Dad asked him "Where am I going?" Instead of saying work like he usually does, he said "Daddy's going crazy!" and then laughed and laughed at himself. I laughed at that one too, he's right you know :)

I just put him down for a nap and as I was rocking him before I laid him down I was thinking about how much fun he is and how much I love this time I have with him at this age. He's growing up so fast. It amazes me how much kids learn in such a short peroid of time. He went from being completely dependent on mom and dad to sleeping in his own room, feeding himself, walking, talking, helping to dress himself, making jokes, making friends, singing songs, learning the alphabet, counting to ten, and so many other things all in under 2 years. I see him growing and maturing each day. Although I don't want him to grow up too fast I'm so excited about the things I see him doing. I feel so blessed every day even when he tries my patience. God gave me an amazing gift when He brought this little boy into our lives. I only hope that I'm able to be the mom he needs me to be because he deserves the best.

One mom I was talking to said that she always prayed that the Lord would make up for where we lack as parents. I think that is a good prayer. You can do your best but God needs to make up the difference. That is my prayer.

he is a precious boy and has a dynamite smile! I look at this generation, as I'm sure all did before us and see how blessed we are. Our kids have been healthy and very smart! My prayer often is giving Kaia the parenting she needs as well. I like that perspective, Liza.

Easton is so very cute. He was adorable in November, I can only imagine all the things he can do now that he was not able to do then. They develop so quickly. Write down all the cute things he says. I used to think I'd remember, but I couldn't. My mom was the one who got me started writing down more. She kept notes on funny things Jesse said. She'd read them to me when we came to pick him up. I think it was a way of sharing what I'd missed, but also a gentle reminder that it was a good idea ;). I found many more when I was going through her things. Hilarious little bunch of notes . . . "Thanks, mom."
