twenty something.

i obviously have an issue knowing what day it is.

today, i am thankful for ellis.
the little ginger that made me a mom, that teaches me everyday what love is. that helps me learn selflessnes in a whole new shocking way- there isn't room to be selfish when you have a baby, kid, teen, adult child. from waking up early, having a little octopus stuck to your legs all day, remembering to feed him and not yourself, never getting a minute to yourself unless he is sleeping, thinking about his welfare before your own. it is astonishing, really.

he is the sweetest, funniest little boy.

i don't know how i'll be able to give him away.

to nursery at church at 18 months
to kindergarten
do driving and dating at 17
to college
to a mission
to a wife.

i am so glad he will always be mine. i guess i will share him a little, here and there.

That's so sweet how you feel about your little boy. But when you think about letting him become him, think of your husband and how happy you are his mom and dad shaped who he was but still "gave him up" to you. :)

i see you too...
