Can I just say again how thankful I am for my little guy’s company? He’s such a delight.
Take this morning:
I laid him down for his nap, and then hurried to get through my chores, having promised myself that I could get out some autumn decor after the day’s cleaning was completed. I don’t have that many autumn things, so it didn’t take me to long to set out the few wreaths, dishes, and knick-knacks, and switch the candlesticks to seasonal colors. I have such fun celebrating seasons, and I stepped back pretty happy with how things looked — but wishing someone could enjoy it with me.
He woke from his nap, and I could hear him playing and laughing in his crib. When I went into the bedroom to get him, I was greeted with an exuberant smile. (How wonderful!) We went back out to the living area, and he proceeded to notice every little thing I had changed while he was gone — his eyes went from the rust candlesticks to the berry wreaths to the flower arrangement and even the little flower picks I’d tucked here and there. He didn’t miss a thing! And his eyes just glowed the whole time, loving every new sight!
And maybe it seems silly, but that was all I needed. Someone else to think all of that orange was fun, too.
What a good little buddy.
