My Little Soul

posted on: Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Little boy, you are magical. I cannot tell you how much fun I have had with you these past couple of weeks. It's like I'm getting views into your little soul that I've never had before. Watching you enjoy is the ultimate kiss from life. How is it that you are so amazing? I'm finding that when I hear you call my name so distinctly from the other room, it's like you are singing a love song to me. You call me with such assurance in your voice that my love is yours. As your eyes light up like fireworks when you hear your daddy open the door, coming home from work, I literally feel like my being cannot handle any more goodness. Hearing your squeals and your giggles as you guys wrestle on the living room floor and seeing the joy bursting from your daddy's eyes as you play, takes my happiness to a whole new level of perfection.  On our way to the swimming pool this week, I was singing to you and I caught you looking at me in the rearview mirror with the most adoring look I've ever seen you have. My heart couldn't take it. Our life is so full.

The things you like most lately are: you make any and everything some sort of a gun. Sound effects and all. (I have to say, I think it's the cutest and boyish thing ever.)

Brushing your teeth. Dear goodness you LOVE this right now.

Anyone who gets on floor level with you must be a horse, needing a rider. haha.

Swimming. You love splashing, wading and now venturing out into the deep end. You think you are quite the stud. I agree with you. ;)

You can't get enough of your drums, seeing someone play them or creating your own.

I love you little soul. I can't wait for all the new adventures that are waiting for us!
