Life's Little Blessings

How did I get so lucky with that little boy of mine?

We have our frustrating moments, our off days. He has temper tantrums. He refuses to let me feed him most of the time now. He kicks and screams more often than not when we do diaper changes, though this is finally starting to get better.

But he is amazing, healthy, happy, brilliant, adorable...He's just perfect.
I wish I could capture every moment on film. The tickling giggles, the cute little words, the sweet little hugs, dancing and songs, even the temper tantrums. I hope I will remember it all, always.

We never know what life will throw at us, we never know what the day will bring. But we all have some blessings in our lives... Things that make the day brighter, add color to our world. The things that make our hearts smile.
Patrick, is mine.

Another Haircut

How can he be old enough to have had 2 haircuts!? He really needed them too!
Every time his hair is freshly cut, he looks a little more like a child and less like a baby. Always adorable, but growing so fast!

My Little Boy

My little munchkin and I have survived the weirdness of the last couple of weeks...either that or I have just gotten used to it? Either way, things feel more normal now. He had an awful diaper rash that is finally almost all healed up now too.

Patrick walks about 85% of the time now. He also tries to run, which is very cute. He has learned the word "Ooops!" It is so adorable when he says it too! Every time he takes a tumble he says "Ooops!" And laughs and gets back up again. Could he be any cuter? I sure don't think so!

Yesterday he put four words together to make a demanding little sentence. "Mama! Ba! Auf! Num!" Translation: Mommy, I would really like you to open the snack container and give me something yummy! Thanks!"

I think back to when he was this absolutely helpless little thing that could only flail little arms and legs. And he made all these cute little baby sounds. Now he's walking, talking... now he is starting to look like a little boy. Not a baby. A little boy.
How on earth did that happen!?
