My Sweet Big Boy

Well that was kinda scary. I went to write this quick post and several of my keys wouldn't work. (Tayv fell on my computer this morning.) But I restarted and all is well. So on to the post...

I haven't written much about Tayv in quite awhile because frankly, he's the cutest kid in the world and I don't want to make everyone else feel bad. Just kidding. Really, it's just so hard to describe the cuteness of some of the things he does or says. Nate doesn't even get it half the time. But he has said several things lately that might be cute even without seeing or hearing it.

-Last night, after dinner at Formosa while I was putting him in his car seat. He reaches out, pulls me in for this big hug and says very giddily (is that a word?): "I'm so so happy!"

-This morning I asked him if he was having a good morning so far. When he said he was I asked what was making his morning so good. He thought for a second then said "Um, my mommy." I don't think I did anything special, just got blessed with a seriously sweet boy.

I've been thinking a lot lately about so many parents who have children die, get kidnapped, get diagnosed with cancer, etc and even more so, about how much I love being a mom and how blessed I have been to not have to deal with losing a child. I hope to always be able to keep that in the for-front of my mind and live for it.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to clean off my desk so I can get some Christmas cards out to y'all and have a place to put my computer so as to avoid any more scares.
