"I Made This Mommy!!!"

So as I was bustling around the house this morning, doing all of my "really important tasks", my toddler was doing something quite amazing. From two rooms away I heard my Bubbas squeal with joy and call for me. He came running in saying, "Mommy, mommy, I made this. Come see." and he led me by the hand to show me his creation.

And all of my busyness stood still. I saw that my toddler had built a tower, and then two towers and then three towers, and then he proclaimed it finished. He made a castle!!! And I almost missed this amazing little milestone, but gratefully my little Bubbas is securely attached andso he knew to seek me out. He knew his momma has a heart for him and a heart for creation. I was not looking, but he made me see.

Thank you Bubbas!

So I have been battling with some tendon issues and have not been able to knit regularly and I have been missing it. So my sil found me a loom to work on projects until I can have needles back in my hands! Thx Heather! This is my first project with a long loom and it went fast. I have this new yummy scarf for our trip to Virginia next week!

Happy Birthday Bubbas

My little Bubbas' is a wonderful surprise package!!! I just love that he decides where and when he is going, and he just makes things happen. He is the sweetest little toddler I ever did meet and I am so lucky to be his mommy.

Two years ago right now, I was trying my hardest to keep him baking a bit longer in my womb, but he was bound and determined to jump into my arms and we have been together ever since.

Thank you much for the little bit of peace and the little bit of mischief that you bring to our home and family. You are an amazing little boy full of laughter and compassion, full of wonder and determination. Our clan is immeasurably blessed by you my sweet soul.

Happy Birthday!!!
