ethan's day

ethan and i got a rare day alone together today. it wasn't planned. it was a blessed accident.

we were suppposed to have a family day all together to pick some things up that we needed for the house ... until we realized we wouldn't all fit in the van with the stuff we needed. welcome to some of the surprises you find with four kids and four car seats. (those things just take up alot of space!) i admit i was initially a little bummed to miss out on time together but i chose instead to look at the gift of having my youngest one all to myself.

we had a wonderful day. we did nothing on the to-do list. we did nothing "productive". we nursed. we read. we nursed. we cuddled. we rocked. we nursed. we sang. we nursed. we snuggled some more. and no, all those nursing sessions are not an exaggeration. he's having a growth spurt so he filled his tummy every two hours like clock work.

so here's to a day that was a true blessing and cherished one-on-one time with a little one who completely melts my heart and makes me glad that i'm a mom.

So sweet! Brought some tears to my eyes when I think back to when mine were that small. He is beautiful!

I don't know who is more blessed...You for having Ethan join your family or Ethan to have you as his mommy...you are truly an amazing mom, Natalie! ...and what a writer you are!

He is such a cutie Natalie! Hope all is well - enjoy all your kiddos this summer. Hopefully we'll be able to come play!
