My Baby Bear

My baby bear recently turned one. Big sigh. The smallest member of our family has almost overnight turned into this precious little toddler. It is heart warming and heart breaking all at the same time. I find myself just staring at him throughout the day... while I'm putting in the tenth load of laundry or washing the dishes for the third time that day. I just stop and pick him up and hold him as long as I possibly can. This is what heaven must smell like....... a sweet baby boy. He is absolutely delicious and is the most mild mannered, easy going, happy and cheerful member of our entire family! We are blessed and my cup runneth over because he was born. Truly. He is more than I ever dreamed I would have. What a gift and a treasure in this earthen vessel I have in my precious son. My heart is thankful this week as I prepare for his first birthday celebration. We are having a teddy bear picnic with lots of goodies and giggles and treats! I am looking forward to it and will post pictures after the weekend. I hope that you all have a blessed week and spend lots of time being present in the moment with each of your precious baby bears......

I agree! He is beautiful! Our youngest just turned two and I am having a difficult time with our last "baby" moments. I am cherishing her baby sighs and babble for as long as I can!

Would you just look at that little angel! He is so precious and Heaven sent! Don't you love to watch him sleep--or any of them for that matter? Truly gifts from God!

I can't believe what a big boy he is now.. You truly are blessed. I'm sure the party is going to be out of this world!!!

Also, just wanted you to know I'm officaly joining my church and getting Baptised this Sunday. You were most definatly my conduit to HIM. Not a day goes by that I don't thank Him for your presence in my life. You were the light that shined on Him... Someday I will get to give you the biggest hug, but until then I'm sending you one vial blog.

XOXO
