Under the Table

I love my son. Because he smiles at me, a lot.
Because he laughs easily and heartily.
Because he's got soft blond hair.
Because he's so big!
Because when he's quiet, he whispers dah-dah's.
Because when he's loud, he's so loud!
Because when he's naughty and yanking on the
kitchen curtains and I say "no no", he stops.
Because when he's naughty and chewing
on my shoe and I say "no no" he
just smiles and continues gnawing.
Because he eats a lot.
Because he snuggles when
he knows it's time to sleep.
Because he's mine.
Well, he's really God's child. But God is letting me borrow him.

Dandy, Bex has a good 5 pounds on Dee, last check. I'm totally coming over and having some wine with you.
Megs, Yes! Babies in diapers are the best! All the better to see their cute little bellies and tiny shoulders--LOVE IT!

Alice said...

YEAH! Let's hear it for gorgeous boys. He's a sweet one. LOVE the whispering da-dahs. xxx

Sooooo cute, and almost makes me wish I had more little babies.....Um, that last part wasn't really true. I will borrow babies and am looking forward to grandchildren but I get to spoil those and then send them home. But it is still fun to look at and experience other peoples little ones.

He is a real cutie!! Your post was really great...well written. I was just looking at the pic of my son standing under the table when he was around a year old....he's 3 1/2 now and no way can he stand "under" the table. Sigh...they do grow up fast.

Nothing better than a baby in a diaper only - unless that baby is eating cake, that is better!

I love how you love your children, Linda!!

Your son is so precious. It is such a sweet time in both of your lives, isn't it?

Reminds me of a time in my life about 30+ years ago.

Thanks for reminding me!
