Short n Sweet - Discovery

 So I have talked before about seeing the world through the eyes of a boy. Well my little guy is now 21 months old and discovering everything. I still find myself in awe of the fact that he is here, it is a dream come true. So amazing.....
I waited, cried and prayed, I praised and watched my friends have babies, I will never forget the pain. But yesterday I got home early, before my husband and I took my little guy outside to wait for him and "sister" to get home. We sat on the driveway and as I watched him, the sun shining in his little blond tuffs of hair I found myself marveling at this little life. He sat next to me and found......wait for it.... a piece of grass! He was so amazed, utterly completely amazed. He had never studied a piece of grass before. Ever. He has walked in it, fallen in it, played in it, but never paid attention to it. Until yesterday. He picked a piece and looked at it for a very long time and even tried to say grass, it come out "gass". I often forget that children do not know anything until they discover it or we teach it.  Such young innocent minds, it makes me reflect on what I put in his mind, what I allow in his mind and examine what I NEED to be putting in his mind. Being a parent is a big job, I am thankful I have a God that is even bigger with a whole book on how to do this child rearing thing. What a beautiful day to put something new and wonderful into the mind of one beautiful little girl and one precious little boy.


  1. Hi from ICLW! Congrats on your precious baby boy!

  2. How lost we would be without that book :-) It's truly amazing when you think about it, not just their creation and coming in to existence, but everything about them and how they learn and discover.
