The Joy That Is My Son

I LOVE my son, but that doesn’t explain it all. I love that he is always happy. Seriously, he is ALWAYS happy and when he isn’t, it doesn’t take much to make him happy again. I LOVE how much joy he has brought to my life. I LOVE how he showed me to think beyond myself. I will NEVER take any moment for granted with him. I will always cherish EACH AND EVERY moment I have him in my life. Everyday I thank God for letting me be his mother.  I can’t wait to see what great things he will accomplish in life.

Watching him grow and develop always amazes me, everyday he learns something new or surprises me with a comment. He makes connections to things that I honestly didn’t think he could understand. Here he is showing his toy dinosaur that his picture is on his bedroom wall.

He is enjoying his new computer and pushes me away. He wants to play games and read books on his own. I “bother” him.

He loves to have his picture taken and must see the results EACH and EVERY time. He’s such a ham. I hope he continues to love having his pictures take-such great memories.

He put his snow suit on all by himself. He shouted, whined, and cried as he struggled. He refused any help and was able to do it on his own. He also put the jacket on by himself. He’s such a big boy and while I love watching him grow, it also saddens me that he needs me less and less. Then again, I am so proud of him wanting to be independent.

He makes me laugh, he’s just so silly and wants everyone around him to smile and laugh with him.I hope he keeps that with him always, bringing others joy is a beautiful gift and

The Joy That Is My Son — 5 Comments

  1. What a beautiful post. I thank God everyday for our precious Giselle. Life before her was good but with her is extravagant joy. Happy New Year to you and the dinosaur. Cheers Julie

  2. I love the picture of him in the snow suit. So cute and independent. Hope he continues to love getting his picture taken. I used to have to shuffle around and whine to get pictures of my youngest sister!

  3. I can’t get over how pic he looks compared to when you wrote that blog post for me and the pictures you included in it. You know I still owe you a follow up from Captain Destructo to Dinosaur. I need to do that sometime soon.

Would love to read your thoughts
