Hands are intriguing to me. I kind of catch myself staring at my husband’s hands a lot. They make me feel protected, comforted, and loved. We’ve been married almost 20 (twenty?!?!) years and I still get warm fuzzies when he gently holds my hand when we are walking or just watching tv. I also adore my children’s hands. I still make my 5 year old hold my hand when we cross the street. Not because I don’t think he has learned how to do it carefully, but mostly because it gives me an excuse to have him right next to me and reach out for my hand ;-).
Chubby little toddler hands are just some of the best. Love that this little sweetie decided to play peek-a-boo just when I snapped the shutter. Perfect ;-).
We added another double digit child to our house. Wow. How is that possible?? This guy is so handsome (I’m not biased or anything), and I think one of his all time favorite things to do is make people laugh. Combo of those 2 = quite a charmer ;-). He faced the challenge of making new friends at his new school with no problem. Keep laughing, bud! Your tender heart and kind smile lights up a room… never let that go.
We celebrated with ice cream one day, then a little bowling and cake another day. Its fun to stretch out birthdays as much as you can. Especially when you turn 10.
