“To the world you may be one, but to one you are the world.”
14 words that sum up how I feel. No one could possibly understand a love like this until they have created a child. I know because I was that person. I’ve loved all my life. All sorts of things and people, but nothing, absolutely nothing even comes close to the depth of this love in my heart since you slid into my life. And while I’m fairly sure most parents feel this way about their child, deep down I still feel my love for you is way greater. It’s impossible to describe. You are my world…
even when trying to poke me with the fire iron
because there’s always warmth
even when sticking your dirty feet on the table
because there’s always a smile
even when playing with your food
because there’s always peace
even when throwing handfuls of mulch at me
because there’s always fun
even when pelting me with snowballs
because there’s always an angel
even when getting sprinkles everywhere
because there’s always something delicious
You are the world to me for 854,350,291,583,682,091 reasons.
I love you too much.
You love the movie, the song, and even the game on your iPAD.
We have been listening to these guys a lot! You love it all.
My gift to you this Christmas…the flu virus. It all started so perfectly beautiful. Presents everywhere. Beautiful wrapping paper just waiting to be shredded to pieces by your little fingers. Cool toys inside itching to be played with. And you, being as excited as a 3 year boy should be, yet you open each gift respectfully and linger over your new treasure. Not moving to the next package until we push you on and put another package in your hands. We tell you all of the gifts are for you. And at that moment your true spirit comes through. Only you, with your big heart, could say, “But I want everyone to open a package. I’m so excited. I want everyone to open a gift.” There you have it. The most sweetest boy in the universe and in a few short hours your mama has given you the worst virus you’ve seen yet. You certainly don’t deserve this, but me, wanting to do it all this season, only hurt you in the end. I’m beside myself. I want to fast forward time and get past this funk. I want to reach deep inside of you and rip out the germ that has invaded your body. I want to stomp it to death and maybe add a blowtorch for good measure. And if all that fails I’ll eat it so it would live in me and not you. I just want your smile back. Your precious voice with everything to say every second you’re awake. And your never ending energy to be a super hero and me the bad guy…always the bad guy. I’m so sorry my boy.
Tru looked like his normal 3-year old self when I left for work today.
Meanwhile daddy took him to get a haircut and…
A whole new boy.
Sage took us para-sailing today. We saw large schools of fish and a huge sea turtle while flying. I was being a chicken, but you calmed me down reminding me that I was buckled in and there was nothing to be afraid of.

Ok…first of all we’ve been very busy. Second of all, your daddy changed all the software for converting pictures and it took me until now to figure it out! Soooooo, what have you done all summer long? Everything! You’ve been my little buddy. We’ve actually been so busy that most of it I didn’t even catch on film. (I’m still fretting over that!) You’ve gone to the beach almost every day the sun was shining and you stay in the water the entire time. We got season passes to the water park and you did all the slides possible for your height. (You little dare devil you!) Our summer has been the best fun. Now I’m back at work and it’s a shock to my system. I miss you. And as bad as I want summer again, I can’t wish the days away. We will have a fun winter too. Everything is fun with you!
Helped Poppy remodel the kitchen.
Played with the dogs
Rode the Sea Screamer
Spent lots of time in daddy’s office
Played with your train
Rode the rides at main street
Wow! Yep. We had BIG FUN!
British Soccer Camp…OMG! You had the best fun ever. In your entire life! And me, a soccer mom? I never would have imagined! But there I sat on that field every day and didn’t want to be anywhere else. Eyes glued on you. Watching you learn. Watching you play. Watching you make friends. Watching you be the big boy you’ve grown into…way too fast! The boy that teaches me more than I will ever teach him. You were determined. You were respectful. You were amazing. And I sat in that chair and felt so proud. I’ve been to many fields and watched many games, but never, ever have I watched as a mom. I’m your biggest fan!! There are quite a few photos that follow and they are just some of my favorites. I honestly wanted to post them all. The whole week’s worth, but I can’t do that. Something about bandwidth or what not. Anywho, here are highlights…
Here’s a day to celebrate, yet it’s no different than any other.
Because I celebrate you every day. Every. Single. Day.
Your smile. Your eyes. Your toes. Your laugh. Your voice. Your skin. Your fingers.
I celebrate all of you. Every. Single. Day.
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Every. Single. Day.
I can’t look at you or hear you or be near you without pausing quietly to say a thank you because you are mine.
Mine. My beautiful boy.
Mine. My Truzie Brown.
Mine. All mine. Every. Single. Day.
I love you too much!
