A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: Proverbs 17:22 (a)
Our little guy with a merry heart is growing into a little man with a merry heart...
He makes me smile all the time..
We have conversations like this..
I'll say: "You are just so yummy I could eat you with a spoon.."
He'll giggle and say: "No, a fork."
I'll say: "O.k. , you are just so yummy I could eat you with a fork."
Giggling hardier he'll say: "No, a spoon."
We go on and on..until we are both giggling like crazy. He is so yummy I could eat him up no matter the utensil.
The other day we were headed outside to play. He asked me if he could go outside with his toes. Meaning ...=He wanted to go bare footed. I may be partial, but I think he's just adorable.
Lately, he has been coming into our bed around 5:30 a.m.
He comes onto my side and snuggles in.
I know the parenting experts would be horrified.
He is 3,I know they would say.. I should walk him back to his bed...
BUT they have never seen him in all of his sleepy cuteness as he comes next to my side of the bed, and says, "Mama, I'm here."
After he snuggles down he wraps his little arms around my neck, kisses me, and says "I love you Mama." and falls back asleep. Simply precious moments.
Having a teen down to tots has taught me to cherish moments like these...
time passes , and these little ones grow up so quickly.
Thank you Jesus for this precious little gift. Thank you for the joy he brings to our home and family each day.
