My heart

This boy has my heart. When I found out I was pregnant the second time I thought I wanted a little girl so that Kalli could have a sister. I always dreamed of having a sister growing up, so I naturally thought that is what I wanted for my (then) only child.

But then I found out I was having a boy and I was instantly excited. And then he came. And I didn't know I could love another child as much as my first....but I do. I cannot imagine life without this climbing, jumping, running, descructing, loving, hugging, funny little boy. He has my heart and I feel so thankful. Just look at his curls and big brown eyes. I love him so <3

Little girl dreams.

I remember a time when I had no worries, no cares....I think back to those times and fondly remember my dad chasing me in the yard with the hose, bike rides with the family, swimming at the beach, taking trips to Grandma's. My parents always traveled a lot and I got to do so many fun things growing up.

I wonder what my little girl will be. I wonder what her dreams are. I asked her the other day what she wanted to be when she grew up and she said "I want to you!" My heart melted a little. I want all her dreams to come true. My beautiful, sweet little girl. I am a lucky mama.

Ah, this weather. It's good for the soul. My kids have both had nasty colds and are finally on the mend. They have been dying to get outside and play, so today we bought a bunch of beans, shovels, buckets and bubbles. They had the best time. Parker enjoyed making a mess more than anything...but I wasn't surprised :) I'm looking forward to getting out the kiddie pool and enjoying the beautiful days ahead. Parker is napping now and I am enjoying the peace and quiet!
